The details given below are for your guidance and information:

It is agreed that personal information of both the Landlord and the Tenant will be retained by the Agent and may be used for marketing purposes during the Tenancy; that present and future addresses and other contact details of the parties may be provided to each other, to utility suppliers, the local authority, authorised contractors, any credit agencies, reference agencies, legal advisers, debt collectors, or any other interested third party.

A Holding Deposit equivalent to one weeks rent will be taken once the referencing form has been completed and returned by you in order to reserve the property and remove it from our availability list. The Holding Deposit will be taken off the first month’s rent or will be returned to the tenant in full if the Landlord decides not to proceed with the tenancy or if an agreement is not reached before the deadline for agreement (and the tenant is not at fault). The Holding Deposit will not be returned if the tenant/s or Guarantor/s provide false or misleading information, if they fail the Right to Rent check or if they decide to withdraw from the application or if the prospective tenant fails to take all reasonable steps to enter the agreement (ie not responding to reasonable requests for information required to progress the agreement).

An application form will be given to you asking for written references including one from your employer (including salary information), your landlord if applicable and you will also be credit checked. Homeowners will be required to provide their latest mortgage statement. Additional references may be required as necessary.

The equivalent of five weeks rent, payable by bank transfer, as stated below, which will be held by Surrey and Hants Limited as stakeholders to the deposit. To be paid by the tenant and to be cleared in Surrey and Hants Limited bank account at least 3 working days prior to the commencement of the tenancy. Provided there are no disputes over unfair wear and tear, damage or dirt, rent outstanding or unpaid utility bills, the deposit will be returned to the tenant at the end of the tenancy. Under no circumstances can the deposit be used as part or all of the last month’s rent. Surrey and Hants subscribes to an insurance based Tenancy Deposit Scheme, details of which have been brought to your attention.

A tenancy agreement will be drawn up and all tenants and guarantors named on the tenancy agreement must sign the necessary documentation in person within the mutually agreed timeframe as stated below before commencement of the tenancy, keys will not be released until the commencement date of the tenancy. A specimen tenancy agreement is attached to this document.

One month in advance payable by bank transfer to made at least 3 working days prior to the tenancy commencement date, then by monthly standing order from only one bank account, one week in advance of the rent due date. Please note that you will be required to complete a standing order form at the same time as the tenancy agreement and so it is imperative that you know which bank account you would like the rent to come from.

Should the tenants wish to amend any of the terms within the agreement after the commencement of the tenancy and subject to the landlord’s agreement to the changes there will be a charge of £50 including VAT payable by the tenant per amendment.

Should the tenant lose or not return all the keys, security devices, remote controls or parking permits at the end of their tenancy then the tenant will be charged for the replacements including the costs of changing the locks where a security key or device has been lost, mislaid or not returned.

Should the tenant be more than 14 days late with their rent payment then they will be charged interest from the date on which the rent was due until the date on which the rent is actually received at a rate of 3% above the Bank of England Base Rate.

This charge is applied if the tenant wishes to terminate the tenancy during the fixed term period or during a periodic period without giving the contractual or statutory notice. This would be the reletting costs incurred by the landlord (inventory make, tenancy agreement, check in) as well as the rent up to the date the new tenants take occupancy.
