Tenant Information

AGREEMENTS

An Assured Shorthold tenancy is usually for a minimum fixed period of six months.

RENT

Rent is payable as per the terms of the Tenancy Agreement and it will be your responsibility to ensure that the rent is paid on the due date.

DEPOSIT

A deposit will be payable by you at the commencement of the tenancy and will be held by Thomas Charles and registered with The Dispute Service. The balance of the deposit will be returned to you, subject to the cost of any dilapidations.

INSURANCE

The Landlord’s insurance policies cover the structure and his own furniture and effects left in the property but do not extend to goods belonging to you. Therefore you will need to arrange for your own contents insurance.

INVENTORY

You will receive an inventory showing a complete list of contents together with a note of their condition and additional photos. We will ask you to check through the contents of the inventory and advise us in writing of its acceptance.

REPAIRS

You will be responsible for advising us of any equipment, fittings or any part of the structure, which becomes defective in any way or requires attention. You will not be allowed to instruct contractors directly or you may be liable for the costs.

INSPECTIONS

We carry out periodic inspections on behalf of the Landlord. These inspections are made by prior arrangement.

GARDENS

You will be responsible for the upkeep of the gardens unless there is a maintenance contract in force. The condition of the garden and gardening equipment will form part of the property inventory.
