During and after your Tenancy, we offer additional services that may incur fees
Tenancy Renewal Fee
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, provides assurance of staying in the property for a further fixed period, and avoids the uncertainty of a landlord serving notice at any given time.
Amendments & Re-issue of Tenancy Agreement
This may be applicable if a change to the tenancy is required mid term. This may be due to a change in personal circumstances or a request to leave the tenancy early. This is agreed prior to the end of the tenancy agreement and is strictly subject to Landlord consent.
Post Agreement Addendum
Should you alter your application after contracts have been formally issued, and it is appropriate to do so, Heather & Lay can produce an addendum to the tenancy agreement strictly with the landlord’s consent.
Failed Direct Debits or Standing Order not set up
This fee is to cover the charges and administration cost when a standing order needs to be re-issued or a direct debit fails, the landlords rent cannot be processed and letters need to be sent. Standing orders are out of our control so it essential that you check with your bank well in advance of the rent due date that the standing order is in place and that funds are available to pay the rent.
Early Surrender Fee
If the tenant requests an early termination of the contract and the landlord agrees for the property to be remarketed then the early surrender fee is required. This must be paid prior to the commencement of remarketing. In addition the tenant is liable to pay the landlords administration and marketing costs and will also remain liable for the property, relevant home insurances and the rent until the commencement of the new contract with the replacement tenant.
Check Out Fee using Independent Company
At the landlord’s expense an independent inventory of the property will be made before the property is occupied by you. You will be liable for a check out fee when the inventory clerk carries out their inspection at the end of the tenancy. The check out report forms an important part in how the return of your security deposit is arranged.
If you wish to leave the property you are renting and apply through a different agent they may want us to provide you with a written reference or complete specific forms for the benefit of their referencing process.
Contractor Access Service
If you are unavailable, or unable to have someone else provide access to contractors, Heather & Lay can arrange for a member of staff to wait at the property providing staff numbers allow it, precise times are observed and payment is provided in advance.
