Properties remain available until all completed application forms and the non-refundable administration fee (Initial Fee), is received by Charles Dyson. On completion of the application form, please provide photographic identification (driving licence or passport) and proof of existing address. Should the references be unsuccessful or the application is withdrawn, Charles Dyson will retain the fee to cover costs. The submission of an application form doesn’t guarantee the property; this will be subject to satisfactory references and Landlord approval.
Each application is subject to the following fee structure:
Up to and including rents of £449 pcm - £149.00
Rents of £450 to £649 pcm - £199.00
Rents above £650 to £849 pcm - £249.00
Rents above £850 pcm - £299.00
Guarantor Fee (if required) - £75.00
This payment is an administration charge to cover our costs such as requesting references, associated paperwork and the removal of the property from the market. Company references are charged at twice the amounts shown.
Tenancy Agreement Fee - £149.00
The tenancy agreement fee includes preparing the tenancy agreement, inventory, standing order, registering the deposit and associated paperwork. This is payable at the time of signing the tenancy.
In order to be considered for a property a tenant needs to be showing an income of 2.5 times more and a Guarantor 3 times more than the annual rental of the property.
For example: £500pcm – Tenants income = £15,000 Guarantors income = £18,000
We are able to consider tenants who wish to pay 6 months’ or 12 months’ rent in advance (the tenancy term), on condition that they pay a further 6 months’ in advance in month 4 or for 12 months’ in month 10 or alternatively can supply a guarantor who is able to financially support the tenancy term thereafter.
The tenant/s are required to pay the first month’s rent in advance, future rents are paid every calendar month on the anniversary date of the move in and the tenants will be required to fill in a Standing Order Mandate on the day of move in. The rental payment date cannot be changed once the tenants have moved into the property. Any standing orders not honoured will be subject to charges as laid out in the tenancy agreement.
For properties that allow pets a fee of £100.00 is payable to cover the cost of professional carpet cleaning and further inspection at the end of the tenancy (see tenancy for details). A larger bond may also be required at the landlords discretion.
No Check-Out Fees are payable at the end of the tenancy, however, a pre-exit inspection can be arranged to expedite the return of the tenants deposit at a cost of £45.00
If a renewal of tenancy is offered to a tenant for a 6 or 12 month term, on signing, a fee of £35.00 is payable.
*Payments made by a debit or credit card are subject to a charge – contact the agents to confirm the relevant amount.
