Before your contract holder(s) application can be fully considered, you will need to pay to us a holding deposit equivalent to one weeks’ rent for the property you are interested in. This is to reserve a property subject to contract, referencing and immigration checks.

Please Note: This will be withheld if any relevant person (including any guarantor(s) withdraw from the contract, provide materially significant false or misleading information, or fail to sign their occupation contract (and/or Deed of Guarantee) within 15 calendar days (or other Deadline for Agreement as mutually agreed in writing).

However, if the Landlord decides not to offer you a contract for reasons unconnected with the above then your deposit will be refunded within seven days. Should you be offered, and you accept an occupation contract with our Landlord then your Holding Deposit will be credited to the first months’ rent due under the occupation contract.

Where, for whatever reason, your Holding Deposit is neither refunded nor credited against any rental liability, you will be provided with written reasons for your Holding Deposit not being repaid within seven days.

You will not be asked to pay any fees or charges in connection with your application for a contract. However, if your application is successful under our standard fix term occupation contract, you will be required to pay certain fees for any breach of that contract in line with the Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Act 2019.

The Renting Homes (Fees etc.) (Wales) Act 2019 permits certain fees/charges to be made where a contract holder(s) has defaulted on or breached their obligations under their occupation contract.

Default Fee for Late Payment
This is chargeable after 14 days rent arrears calculated on the interest at 3% above the Bank of England base rate for each day that the payment is outstanding.

Loss of Key or other Security Device
A charge is payable to cover the cost of replacing a lost key or security device; however this charge will vary depending on the type of key, lock or device that has to be replaced. (e.g. electronic devices, fobs, special security keys/locks).

Payment on Termination of Contract
Where a contract holder wants to leave a contract early, the landlord is entitled to charge the contract holder(s) an early termination fee such as the landlords’ costs to re-let the property and any outstanding rent until a new contract holder moves in.

Missed appointments
Where arrangements have been made with a contract holder(s) for a contractor to carry out remedial work at a property, and a contract holder subsequently refuses entry, or not being home to allow entry, resulting in charges to the landlord. These charges could be passed onto the contract holder(s).

Avoidable or purposeful damage to property
Damage to a property caused by neglect or careless or wilful behaviour by the contract holder(s).

Emergency/out of hours call-out charges
Costs (variable) incurred as a result of a landlord arranging for someone to attend the let property at the request of a contract holder(s), such as a locksmith or an emergency glazier in the early hours of the morning, when the problem had been caused by the contract holder(s) in the first place, such as a window broken on purpose, or keys lost or locked inside a house.
