Tenants Fees

Transparency for tenants

Once you've found the perfect property and your offer has been accepted, we'll start preparing the tenancy agreement and organising the logistics for your move-in day. The tenancy charges may vary, depending on the agreement we have with the landlord, so it's best to ask the Marsh & Parsons office dealing with your offer for a full break down of costs.

That said, we don't want you to have any unwelcome surprises when it comes to signing the contract, so here's a list of what you can typically expect to pay:

 
Pre-Tenancy
  • Tenancy Agreement / Admin Fee : £270
  • Referencing Fee : £30 per reference (including references for any proposed Guarantor)
  • Check in fee : £144
  • Deposit: Typically six weeks’ rent
  • Pet Deposit : Returnable additional security deposit, equivalent to two weeks' rent

All fees stated are inclusive of VAT (calculated at 20%)

 
During your tenancy (if required)
  • Renewal Document Fee : £72
  • Change of Occupancy Fee : £120
  • Future Landlord Reference Fee : £36

All fees stated are inclusive of VAT (calculated at 20%)
