Jackson Pyne’s Renting Guide

In a fiercely competitive market – where tenants currently outweigh properties by six to one! – it’s essential that you stand out from other candidates. In order to get a head start and, more importantly, avoid a last minute panic once you’ve found the perfect home, we recommend considering the following:

References

 

When putting yourself in the shop window, you’ll have to make a good impression, quickly. The following references are essential:

* An employer reference on company-headed paper stating what you do, how long you’ve done it for, and your salary. If you’re self employed, just bring an accountant’s reference

* A current Landlord reference stating where you’ve lived, your payment history and how well you’ve treated the property. Go back at least twelve months!

Remember, many landlords won’t accept an offer on a property unless this information is in place, so it’s well worth having it with you on your viewings.

Terms and conditions

Administration fees
A non-refundable administration fee of £350 will be payable for up to two people upon acceptance of any offer. An additional £75 for each extra applicant will be payable thereafter.

The tenant agrees to pay a once only deposit lodging fee of £25, prior to commencement of tenancy to cover the administration costs of protecting the deposit.

The tenant agrees to pay a check out fee of £50 prior to commencement of tenancy, to cover the costs relating to checking them out at the end of the tenancy.

Should you wish to terminate your tenancy before the end of the term and the landlord agrees that you can terminate early, you will be responsible for the repayment of the landlord’s administration fee of £240. Where Jackson Pyne Ltd has arranged landlord’s insurance on behalf of the landlord, you will be responsible for the repayment of the premium at a cost of £25 per month for the unexpired portion of the tenancy.

It is your obligation to obtain written consent from the landlord for any change in the identity of the tenants. Upon receipt of this consent Jackson Pyne Ltd will draw up a tenancy agreement for signature by all parties. An administration fee of £120 will be charged for this service.

An administration fee of £25 will be charged for each letter sent by Jackson Pyne Ltd regarding late or non-payment of rent or administration charges.

A reference may be requested by a tenant at any time. The administration fee for this service is £25 and is payable upon request.

If any charges remain outstanding at the end of the tenancy, Jackson Pyne Ltd will deduct the amount due from the deposit.

Renewal of tenancy
Please contact us in advance if you wish to renew your tenancy. Contact should be made no less than two months before the end of your tenancy. If the tenancy is renewed for another fixed term, we will make a charge of £120 to cover our administration.

Payment of rent
The first instalment of rent must be paid in cleared funds when you sign your tenancy agreement. Thereafter, rent is payable by standing order (unless agreed otherwise) to arrive on the due date stated in the tenancy agreement. It is advised that the standing order be set up so that the funds leave your account three days before the rent is due.

Deposit
A deposit will also be payable prior to the commencement of tenancy.*

Once you’ve put that money to one side, have a think about how to pay it. Jackson Pyne will accept payment in cash**, bankers draft or CHAPS transfer. Note that with a transfer, we must allow several days before acknowledging any payment as cleared funds.

*a deposit is typically equivalent to one and a half month’s rent.

**a handling fee of 2% is charged for any payments received in cash.
