If you wish to terminate your tenancy prior to the end of your contract, and the landlord agrees to this, you will be responsible for the repayment of the pro-rata commission paid in advance by the landlord to the agent for the unexpired portion of the tenancy, unless you are leaving as per the break clause in your contract.

A charge of £50 inc VAT will be applied for any contract variation, novation, amendment or change of occupant at the tenant’s request within an existing tenancy. It is your obligation to obtain written consent from the landlord for any change in the identity of the tenants.

The first installment of rent must be paid in cleared funds prior to keys being released for you tenancy.  The subsequent rent payments should arrive on the due date by cheque, cash or standing order.  For managed properties, one rent should be paid each month and we will not accept multiple payments.

If you pay the rent late, we can charge you interest at the rate of 3% a year above the Bank of England base rate once the rent is 14 days late.  We will charge you interest until the date we receive full payment.
