No Hidden Fees
Helping you keep control of your costs
What is it?
The tenancy set up fee includes the cost of referencing – which will cover checking your credit status, previous employer, current or past landlords, and taking into account any other information to help assess the affordability of your tenancy application. The fee also includes providing a Tenancy Agreement and protecting your security deposit with a scheme such as My Deposits. It covers the cost of one person. The landlord pays a share to set up the tenancy.
When do I pay it?
After you’ve viewed the property and have decided to apply to rent it, we will provide you with a Tenancy Fee Declaration form which lists the services we provide and the fees that are payable. You will then be asked for your tenancy set up payment, which will be offset against the total amount payable on the day you sign the tenancy agreement and move in to your new home.
Any additional fees that may be applicable to you, for example a guarantor fee, will be collected on the day that you sign your tenancy agreement along with your rental and security deposit payment.
During the tenancy, you may incur additional fees for other services.
May be applicable if a change to the tenancy is required mid-term. This may be due to a change in personal circumstances and / or a request to leave the tenancy early is agreed prior to the end of the tenancy agreement (this is subject to landlord consent).
Renewal Fee (tenant’s share)
This is the cost of preparing a new Tenancy Agreement and negotiating with your landlord for a further fixed term tenancy. Extending your tenancy, if agreed by your landlord, gives an assurance of staying in the property for a further fixed period, and avoids the uncertainty of a landlord serving notice at any given time. The landlord also pays a share for renewing the tenancy.
Check out fee (tenant’s share)
Some landlords ask Brampton Real Estate to employ external inventory companies to produce an inventory for their property before the let. Where this applies, you will be liable for a check out fee when the inventory company carries out their inspection at the end of the tenancy. If applicable, the check out report forms an important part of how the return of your security deposit is arranged. Please feel free to ask our staff if this would apply to you. The landlord also pays a share of the check out fee.
Deductions may be made due to variation of the condition of the property compared to the inventory. A work arrangement fee of that invoice will be charged for arranging the work, processing the invoice and making the payment to the contractor.
