Tenancy Application Form
In order to make an application, we request that all applicants read the following information and when ready, complete the application questions.
Should your application be accepted, inline with the requirements outlined within Schedule 1, Tenant Fees Act 2019 you are required to pay a refundable holding deposit equivalent to one week’s rent in order to reserve a property. It will be requested via an emailed invoice at the point of landlord acceptance of your application.
Upon receipt of the holding deposit, the property will be marked as Under Offer and no further marketing will be carried out unless you withdraw from the application or the application does not proceed, for whatever reason.
The purpose of the holding deposit is to enable both the landlord and tenant to demonstrate commitment to entering into a tenancy agreement on the terms agreed whilst reference checks and right to rent checks are undertaken. The holding deposit creates a binding conditional contract between tenant and landlord. Please note: should you wish to secure a property using a holding deposit on the basis of a video viewing only, you must do so at your own risk. The holding deposit will not be refundable if you withdraw your application at a later date.
There are four specific scenarios whereby we might retain a holding deposit:
- You withdraw your application
- You fail your right to rent (immigration) checks
- You fail to disclose relevant information during your application that causes the landlord to withdraw from the tenancy or deems you unsuitable for tenancy.
- Despite our best efforts, you fail to enter into a tenancy within 15 days of the payment of the holding deposit (known as the “deadline for agreement” date). If this date needs to be extended, either party can do this in writing.
