Heaton Property always has and always will present any deposit and all administration charges with every individual property description. We believe in transparency and having an unknown amount of money to pay before moving into a property isn’t acceptable.
The format on property advert looks like this:
Deposit – Equal to one month’s rent
Administration Fee: £xxx for ProShare Plus Tenants / £xxx for the property / £xxx per Adult applicant.
Please note that we never charge administration fees for tenants under 18 years old.
The Heaton Property team will always be happy to calculate the costs based on specific requirements; this can even be done before a viewing takes place at a property.
Before a property is secured by a prospective tenant, our team will prepare a ‘holding fee’ receipt which will detail all the deposit, first month’s rent and administration fees that are due and when they are due by. Whilst we feel our process is very simple and our fee structure is easy to understand, we are more than happy to spend as much time as necessary to ensure any prospective tenant has all the information they need before paying anything towards securing a property.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or are unsure about any aspect of the lettings process.
