The Immigration Act 2014
This applies to everyone wishing to rent a property within the United Kingdom. Whether you are a British National, from a member state of the European Union or from anywhere else in the world, the validation of your immigration status is required by law. A right to rent check will be carried out on each applicant in addition to the credit check application. There is an additional fee of £14 per person plus vat for this which is payable direct to the company carrying out the credit check.
Same amount as rent per calendar month
Once you have viewed a property, if you wish to proceed, you would need to put down £350 (£200 holding deposit and £150 for credit check for one person), each additional person will be charged £30 for the credit check. This must be in cash and this effectively means the property would be taken off the market for a maximum of two weeks, while credit checks are processed. On the day of move in, your months rent in advance would be payable plus deposit minus £200 holding fee already paid.
If YOU back out or change your mind for any reason you would lose any monies already paid. If the credit check comes back unsuitable and the landlord does not wish to proceed a refund would be made minus the credit check fee. (£150 first app, £30 each additional). The initial contract will be for a minimum of 6 months and then reviewed for a further term.
£200 NON REFUNDABLE MOVE IN FEE PLUS CREDIT CHECK FEES (£150 1st person £30 for each additional)
Same Terms and conditions as above apply with reference to credit check, immigration and change of mind. On move in day you would pay your months rent in advance.
