Application Fees are £100 for the first applicant and then £50 per other applicant over the age of 18. This fee is used for, Referencing (Landlord and Employer), drawing up the Tenancy Agreements and Credit Searches. This also covers costs for (if any) Guarantor referencing. We do not charge tenancy renewal fees!
The Application Process usually takes up to 7 days. This is dependent on how quickly your references come back to us. After this, the tenant is free to move into the property.
If the application is likely to take longer than 7 days, we will let you know!
The Bond for ANY property with Tranquil Homes & Services Ltd will be equivalent to 1 months rent of the Property. The only exception to this would be if you have pets, are a smoker or the landlord may request a higher bond payment! This will be made clear to you from the start!
Your bond is retained with the DPS (as per current regulations) to cover any damage that may be caused to the property during Tenancy!
Your bond will be returned to you after you decide to move out and and inspection has been carried out!
Most assured short-hold tenancies are initially for a period of 6 months however, you can request a longer tenancy. After this initial 6 month period is up, you will automatically be put on a rolling month to month contract unless you request otherwise!
