Due to a change in legislation with effect from 1st June 2019 agents will no longer be able to charge fees to tenants for referencing and moving in to a property. The same legislation also sets out that deposit amounts will be capped at five weeks rent. If you are interested in renting one of our properties it is important you contact Daniels Estate Agents as soon as possible as other tenants may be interested too. We will need you to provide certain information in order for us to discuss your potential tenancy with your new landlord. Once we have the initial agreement from the landlord to proceed with your application you will then be sent an e-mail confirming the proposed terms. We will then need all tenants to be fully referenced by 'Van Mildert' who will carry out the referencing and a credit check process on our behalf and you will need to pay one weeks rent as a holding deposit.
It is important that all information provided for reference purposes is accurate as if a tenant fails Right to Rent checks or the referencing process having provided false or misleading information the holding deposit will not be returned.
The holding deposit will also be retained by the Daniels if the tenant withdraws from the proposed tenancy or fails to take reasonable steps to enter into the tenancy.
Prior to the commencement of any tenancy, Daniels Estate Agents will need to have received the first month’s rent plus four weeks rent to add to the weeks rent holding deposit (five weeks rent in total).
