Lemon Lettings & Sales charge potential tenants, application fees in order to confirm suitability on behalf of our landlords. We have outlined the fees below:
• Single Application £150
• Couple / Whole Property Application £250
• Additional Applicant £60
• Company Application £400
• Guarantor £60
• Holding Deposit £250
• Tenancy Renewal £60
• Room Check Out £90
• Whole Property Check Out £180
• Change of Tenant £250
• Early Termination £400
These application fees become payable once an offer has been accepted by the landlord. Application fees are non-refundable. Tenants will also be required to pay a holding deposit. The holding deposit paid by the tenant is used as part of their first rental payment upon taking possession of the property. The holding deposit includes a reference provided by a third party. 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.
If a fixed term tenancy is approaching its expiry and both parties wish to extend the tenancy, a fee of £60 per tenant will be payable for renewing or extending the tenancy agreement on each occasion, irrespective of the length of the extended period or the type of agreement agreed.
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 £250 holding fee to reserve the property and application fee 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.
