Premier Red Property takes a refreshingly honest approach to charging tenant fees and believes that all customers applying for a tenancy should understand all of the fees that they are required to pay. We do not have quotation or change our rates dependant on the tenant or property. Our fees are fixed and transparent.
£250 holding deposit
The property will be reserved in your name for a period of 7 days from the date of receipt. If references forms are not returned within 7 working days the property will be placed back on the market and you will lose the Holding Deposit. We may show it to other people but no other tenancy applications will be accepted while the property is being held for you.
If you withdraw from the tenancy at anytime the monies will be forfeited in full.
If you fail references because of undisclosed adverse credit history, the reservation monies will be forfeited in full.
This forms part of your refundable security deposit the balance of which will be paid prior to the start of the tenancy.
One Month Rent in advance
Dependant on the rental agreement.
This is not a fee, but for transparency we have included it so you have you all the details and outlays you can expect.
Administration & Referencing Fee Incl. Tenancy Agreement
On application, all prospective tenants will be required to pay a non-refundable Administration and Referencing Fee in order to process your tenancy.
The Administration & Referencing fee covers the cost for PRP to prepare the necessary contractual paperwork in preparation for tenancy commencement, including; the tenancy agreement, deposit registration and standing order mandate for the monthly rental payments and to over-see the referencing process, which consists of a credit check, confirmation of your employment status and salary via your current (and where applicable future and/or previous) employer, obtaining a current and/or previous landlord’s/managing agent’s reference, and general background checks in order to assess your affordability level against the monthly rental of the property you are applying for and your suitability as a tenant.
