Tenant Fees

Heaton Property always has and always will present the deposit amount and a summary of 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 up to two tenants
(includes first Guarantor, where required)

Please note that we never charge administration fees for occupiers who are under 18 years old.

Introducing our landlords...

One of the many ways we reassure new landlords about our service is by introducing them to existing ones...

In the 3 years we’ve used Heaton Property, we’ve discovered that not only do they take the time to understand what it is I need from them, but they then do that very rare thing – they deliver!

Austen Hempstead

You continue to be the best agent I have ever worked with by a very long way, your willingness to go the extra mile  in providing practical help over and above our contract has been appreciated.

Richard Ford

I knew you would be thorough and successful from both your tone and your sensible reaction to our first enquiry.
