This covers damages or defaults on the part of the tenant during the tenancy.

Unpaid Rent

Tenants are liable to the actual cost of replacing any lost key(s) or other security device(s). If the loss results in locks needing to be changed, the actual costs of a locksmith, new lock and replacement keys for the tenant, landlord any other persons requiring keys will be charged to the tenant. If extra costs are incurred there will be a charge of £15 per hour (inc. VAT) for the time taken replacing lost key(s) or other security device(s).

Variation of Tenancy Agreement
£50 (inc. VAT) per variation upon agreement by the landlord.

Change of Sharer (after the end of the fixed six month period)

Early Termination of Tenancy
All parties to the tenancy sign a six month Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement which has a fixed start date and a fixed end date. This is a legally binding document. Tenants may approach the landlord if they wish to terminate the Tenancy Agreement early. Note: the landlord does not have to agree. Should the landlord grant early termination the tenants will be charged the reasonable costs incurred by the landlord, for re-letting the property including applicant referencing and tenancy documentation as required by current legislation. Rent will continue to be due until a new Tenancy Agreement is in place.
