Referencing And Credit Checks

A refundable security deposit (reserved for any damages or defaults on the part of the tenant) capped at no more than five weeks' rent where the annual rent is less than £50,000, or six weeks' rent where the total annual rent is £50,000 or above. These funds will be held within a Government approved scheme. We currently use the Deposit Protection Service 'Custodial', further details can be gained from their web site at: www.depositprotection.com.
The deposit is refundable at the end of the Tenancy Agreement provided that terms and conditions of the Tenancy have been adhered to and the property is handed back in a satisfactory and clean condition, with fair wear and tear taken into consideration.
Applicants on benefits will need to provide a Guarantor for each adult tenant. The Guarantor must be in full time employment or in receipt of a good pension or living by independent means and will be referenced and credit checked in the same way as the prospective tenants, proof of income shall be required.
