No unwelcome surprises

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 your local Marsh & Parsons office for a full breakdown 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%)
