Tenant Fees

There has been a lot of information in the news regarding Tenant Fees over the last year. The Government proposed to ban Letting Agency Fees during the Autumn Statement in November 2016.  This new piece of legislation is still going through consultation and has not been passed in Law.

However, Foundation do not charge Tenant Fees, which are usually imposed for –

  • Admin work
  • Inventories
  • Immigration checks
  • Tenancy renewals
  • Reference and Tenant checks.

We do not take a fee for reserving a property – Holding Fee.

We do not take a fee for renewing a Tenancy Agreement at Contract end.

However, we do ask you to pay –

  • Rent in Advance – the equivalent of a month’s rent.
  • Tenancy Deposit – equivalent of a month’s rent.

Make a Payment

Foundation do not accept cash payment for rent. All payments should be made by Bank Transfer and regular rent payments are expected to be made by Standing Order.

Bank details will be provided for payment of Tenancy Deposit and Rent in Advance once a Tenancy Agreement has been signed by both parties.
