Letting fees information
When renting a property through Williams Lynch the following charges will apply:
To secure a property
We require you to pay one week of the first month’s rent as confirmation of your intent to proceed with the proposed tenancy. Should you decide not to proceed or should your references fail this payment is non-refundable.
We use a specialised independent agency to collect references on our behalf and you will be required to complete an application form.
Reference fee per applicant £72 Incl VAT
Guarantor fee (if required) per applicant £72 Incl VAT
An ARLA approved tenancy agreement will be provided which we require all parties to sign ahead of taking up occupancy for which we will charge a fee.
A Tenancy agreement fee of £180 Incl VAT
Please note all of the above fees will be required to initially reserve a property and the agreement is subject to references and contract.
You will be required to pay a six week security deposit equivalent to six weeks rent, before taking occupancy and this will be collected one week ahead of your scheduled move date. You will have a balance of five weeks to pay as you holding deposit forms part of the fully six weeks required.
Rent in Advance pre-tenancy
We require you to pay the balance of the first month’s rent before taking occupancy (or unless otherwise pre-agreed a higher amount). The balance is determined by the remaining amount of the first month’s rent, less the amount you have paid to secure the property, not including the administration and referencing charges. This will be collected one week ahead of your scheduled move date.
Change of Occupant
In order to change an occupant to an existing tenancy at the landlords full discretion, a fee of £420 Incl VAT will be required for administration, referencing and right to rent checks to be performed pre-tenancy. Payment of this charge does not constitute the granting of a tenancy and is non-refundable.
End of Tenancy
At the end of your tenancy you may be required to have the property professionally cleaned and a check out inventory will be compiled.
At the end of your tenancy you may be required to pay for a professional clean at a cost from £200
Check out inventory from £130 – £165 Incl VAT to be determined by number of bedrooms in the property
