Tenant Charges

At Craven & Company we believe in complete transparency when it comes to tenant charges. This is a breakdown of the charges that may occur when you rent a property through Craven & Company.

Reserving A Property

To secure a property an application fee as indicated below is required. Should the tenancy not proceed these are non-refundable.

A flat fee of £200 for the first applicant plus £100 for each additional applicant will be payable upon your application being accepted.

The tenancy application fee covers the cost of all aspects of your referencing. The referencing includes checking your credit and employment status, photocopying and storing documents requested, sending and receiving of references, assessing affordability, cross referencing and obtaining previous landlord references. In addition, there is now a legal requirement to check each applicant has the Right to Rent in the UK.

A guarantor may be required subject to the outcome of your referencing and/or your personal circumstances which would be an additional £100.

The deposit (one month’s rent plus £100.00 unless otherwise stated) and the first month’s rent are required in cleared funds prior to the start of the tenancy. We are members of the government backed Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS).

As members of the Property Redress Scheme you can rest assured that we are an expert and a responsible team of property professionals.

Right To Rent

From 1 February 2016 all occupiers of private rented accommodation in England, aged 18 or over must prove that they have the right to live in the UK legally. As part of the referencing process your Right to Rent in England will be verified.

Tenancy Charges

Further charges may be applicable to some tenancies and are outlined below:

Tenancy Renewal Fee: £75
This covers the cost of negotiating and preparing a further fixed term tenancy agreement to provide you with the security a fixed term agreement can provide.

Amendment Fee (PP): £120
Due to a change in personal circumstances such as one tenant leaving the property (subject to the landlord’s approval) we may be required to prepare an amended tenancy agreement which could include the need for further referencing.

Late Payment Fee: £24
If the rent is not paid on the rent due date a late payment fee may be charged.

Missed inspection Fee: £24
During your tenancy we will visit to ensure that the property is in good order and discuss any concerns you may have. If a scheduled and confirmed appointment is missed a charge may apply.

Move Out Fee: £60
A fee will be payable if we are required to organise repairs/maintenance at the end of the tenancy should such works be required after the move out inspection and deemed the tenants responsibility.

Should you choose to move on, we would be delighted to help you in your search for a property to rent or purchase. Please contact our local offices to register your details and requirements. We will also provide references to assist you with your move free of charge.
