All offers to rent are subject to contract, with the holding deposit used against our expenses for processing your application. Please note,depending on the amount of work we have carried out on your behalf, you may lose some or all of your holding deposit should you make an offer then later withdraw from this.

Should your offer be accepted then your holding deposit will be deducted from your initial rental payment to avoid this payment being made twice.

 

Charges During The Offer Accepted Stage

Once your offer is accepted (subject to contract) and before your tenancy starts, you will need to make sure the following cleared payments have been made to us:

Rent
Less the holding deposit mentioned above
1 month’s rent
Security Deposit 6 week’s rent

 

The above amounts may vary depending on the specific instructions from each individual landlord, please confirm with us prior to making the payments. Future rents will be taken automatically by direct debit from a single nominated UK bank account.

We use the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) to protect all deposits, where Global Estates manages the property or if requested by the landlord, for assured short hold tenancies.
