The tenants are required to pay a deposit prior to moving in to protect the landlord against any damage incurred during a tenancy which is deemed to be beyond normal wear and tear. The deposit will be equivalent to 5 weeks rent and will be paid just prior to commencement of the tenancy. Where Properties are protecting the deposit we will register the Landlord and tenant details and protect the security deposit with a government-authorised scheme. Provide the tenant(s) with the deposit Certificate and Prescribed Information within 30 days of the tenancy.

Your deposit will be held with My Deposits www.mydeposits.co.uk

It’s a legal requirement for landlords and letting agents to protect their tenants’ deposits with a government scheme such as mydeposits.

This is refundable and is held for security against the tenant damaging the property or not paying rent. 5 weeks rent is the upper limit (where the total rent is under £50,000 per year).


A minimum of 1 months’ rent in advance will be required from the tenants just prior to moving in and commencement of a tenancy.
