Holding Fee

A Holding fee of £500.00 is required to remove a rental property off the market; this is a non-refundable fee to cover our administration costs. If the landlord refuses to proceed, despite satisfactory reference, the fee would be refunded. If the letting does not go ahead due to default by the prospective tenant or the credit check or references are unsatisfactory or it becomes apparent that facts given to us in this application prove to be untruthful, we regret that the holding fee will not be returned to you.
