Lemon Lettings & Sales take a 1 week holding deposit in order to hold the property. The holding deposit paid by the tenant is used as part of their first rental payment upon taking possession of the property. This fee is deemed non-refundable irrespective of the reference details and whether or not the applicant(s) have been accepted as a tenant by the landlord – after reviewing the references, suitability is deemed to be at the discretion of Lemon Lettings & Sales.
The holding deposit will secure a property from further marketing. The tenant has been made aware that this money will be used towards rental payment upon commencement of a tenancy. The applicant(s) is also aware that should they decide against taking up residency or delay the move in date provisionally agreed prior to the deposit being paid, they will forfeit their right to the money as it is deemed non-refundable. In the event of the landlord deciding not to proceed with the tenancy, the ‘advance rental’ shall be returned to the tenant.
A tenancy will be offered to you subject to contract and more specifically, subject to the following conditions:
• Tenant application form successfully completed
• The landlord has accepted the offer
• Payment of holding fee to reserve the property has been paid
• Satisfactory references have been obtained
Before moving into a property, payment of the first months rent and deposit must be made by bank transfer. Funds must be cleared before keys can be released.
