AFFORDABILITY:- £23,850.00 per annum. This is the minimum level of income required for referencing purposes. If you wish to take a tenancy as a sole tenant you will have to have this amount of annual income; if you intend to rent jointly with others, then you and your co-tenants need to have an annual combined income at or above this amount.
SCALE OF CHARGES PAYABLE BY TENANTS DURING A TENANCY:-
Late payment charges - Interest at the rate of 3% per annum above the Bank of England base rate from time to time on any rent or other money payable under the tenancy agreement remaining unpaid 14 days after the day on which it became due.
Variations to the Contract - if consent is given: £50.00 inc VAT . A variation could include requests for a pet, requests to redecorate, requests to change sharer in a joint tenancy, requests to sub let, or any other amendment which alters the obligations of the agreement. If requests are refused, no charge is made.
Novation of Contract & an Assignment of Contract - if consent is given: £50.00 inc VAT or a reasonable cost if higher. Novation is a new contract based on almost the identical existing contract. An assignment is where one tenant assigns his/her rights under an existing tenancy to another person under the existing tenancy.
Change of sharer - £50.00 including VAT, or our reasonable costs if higher, if for example there is an exceptional circumstance relating to referencing, or a new inventory is required.
Early termination of tenancy - If a landlord consents to an early termination it might be on the condition that replacement tenants are found. In this situation a tenant could reasonably be required to pay the costs associated with re-advertising the property or referencing new tenants, subject to evidence demonstrating the costs to be incurred. If a suitable replacement tenant is found, the outgoing tenant will be charged rent and will have to pay the associated outgoings until the new tenancy has started. The costs charged will not exceed the loss incurred by the landlord (if the payment is required by the landlord), or reasonable costs (if the payment is required by the agent). Landlords are only entitled to recover the sum of any rental payments which would not be met by the start of a new tenancy. As agent our reasonable costs will be the published letting or set-up cost which Glovers Estate Agents charge to a landlord.
Lost Keys, Locks and Security Devices - Charges will be made for the for the replacement of lost keys and other respective security devices such as replacing locks and secure car park access fobs. The charges made will be the actual costs incurred in getting keys cut, or locksmith's charges, without any charge being made for our time except in an exceptional circumstance such as an emergency (other than replacing keys), where a charge of £15.00 per hour could be made.
