As of 1st September 2019, Agents and Landlords in Wales are longer permitted to charge administration fees for tenancy applications. Fees have been replaced with a holding deposit which is used to reduce the amount payable for your first month’s rent. The holding deposit is equivalent to one week’s rent. Payment of this along with completed application forms will secure your property and the application process will commence. The holding deposit will then be offset against your first month’s rent that will be payable within an agreed timescale (to be discussed with each individual applicant/s), however all tenancies will be expected to commence within a 28 day period. For example; if a property is marketed at £550.00 PCM, the holding deposit will be £126.92 and that is due at the beginning of the tenancy application process. On the day the tenancy commences, the remaining funds of £423.08 will be due and together these funds will be your first month’s rent. A deposit will also be required no later than the tenancy start date and in usual cases is equivalent to one month’s rent.
Staff at Swansea Property Agents will provide detailed information to you at the very start and welcome any queries from prospective tenants. Prospective tenants will be asked to read through a pre tenancy application document, so all applicants will be fully informed of what the application process entails. We ensure that all applicants enter into a tenancy application with clarity and confidence, it is very important to us that you are happy and informed.
We will be on hand to provide support, advice and updates throughout the application giving peace of mind to our tenants.
If you have any queries regarding our fees, please feel free to contact us on 01792 652 151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org we will be more than happy to assist you.
