Should you wish to go ahead, we will collect a holding deposit equivalent to one week's rent from from the tenant and move to the next stage.

- Proof of Identity
- Previous Landlord Reference

A security deposit can be no more than the equivalent of 5 weeks rent.
Deposits must be registered with a government endorsed Tenant Deposit Scheme within 30 days of the tenancy starting.
In most instances, we collect deposits on behalf of landlords and register them with our DPS.
Inventory and Check-In
To avoid disputes at the end of tenancies or issues arising during them, it is advisable to us an inventory at check-in. This lists everything that is in the property, their condition, including any marks, scratches or damage to paintwork or any other goods supplied with property. This can then be used as reference at the end of tenancy to make deposit disputes less likely.
We can arrange for an inventory to be created and full check-in procedures to be carried out.
