Tenancy Information

Relevant letting fees and tenant protection information

As well as paying the rent, you may also be required to make the following permitted payments.

Permitted payments

Before the tenancy starts (payable to Harmes Turner Brown LTD 'the Agent')
Holding Deposit: 1 week's rent.
This is to reserve a property.
Please Note - This will be withheld if any prospective tenant withdraws from the tenancy, fails a Right-to-Rent check, provides materially significant false or misleading information, or fails to sign their tenancy agreement within 15 calendar days (or other Deadline for Agreement as mutually agreed in writing)

Deposit: 5 weeks' rent. Unless otherwise instructed this will be lodged with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS.)
This covers damages or defaults on the part of the tenant during the tenancy.

During the tenancy (payable to the Agent or direct to the Landlord if applicable)

Payment of £50.00 (inc. VAT) if you want to change the tenancy agreement.
Payment of interest for the late payment of rent at a rate of 3% above Bank of England base rate.
Payment of the actual cost of replacing any lost key(s) or other security device(s). If the loss results in locks needing to be changed, the actual costs of a locksmith, new lock and replacement keys for the tenant, landlord and any other persons requiring keys will be charged to the tenant. If extra costs are incurred there will be a charge of £15 per hour (inc. VAT) for the time taken replacing the lost key(s) or other security device(s).

Payment of any unpaid rent or other reasonable costs associated with your early termination of the tenancy. If it is mutually agreed, at the tenants request, for a tenancy to be terminated early, then tenants will be responsible for the reasonable costs of the landlord to re-let the property.
