Guide to Tenant's Fees

The following “non-refundable” fees will be payable in the event that the landlord has accepted your “subject to contract” application to take up a tenancy agreement. These fees are preliminary fees and do not guarantee that your application will be accepted. For example, if credit  references received show that you are not a suitable candidate or should you decide that you no longer wish to proceed, you will lose these fees and you will not be entitled to a tenancy agreement. 


Once the property has been secured, you will be required to complete our reference process which includes the following fees: 

The referencing fee includes checking your current credit status, landlord reference, employment reference and character reference.

This holding deposit is a deposit of intent and it is deducted from the initial monies, which are paid on or before the day that you move into the property. If you retract your offer or fail references for any reason your holding deposit will not be refunded.

These fees are payable as soon as possible once you have been notified that the Landlord is prepared to consider your offer to take up a tenancy agreement, 

Administration Fee

Once we have received suitable references  and the Landlord is prepared to enter into a tenancy agreement,  we will then prepare a tenancy agreement and the following fee will be payable: 

The administration fee covers the cost of creating the tenancy agreement, holding and registering the deposit with the tenancy deposit scheme as well as .

Renewal of Tenancy 

In the event that you renew your tenancy for a further period the following charge is made. 

Please do not hesitate to contact a member of Turbervilles, if you have further question regarding our fees.


For your budgeting purposes you need to take into account that a RENT DEPOSIT will be payable also.       

Before signing the tenancy Agreement you will be required to lodge with us a rent deposit , usually equal to six week’s rent. The rent deposit is security for the landlord against non-payment of rent during your tenancy and such things as breakages or damage to the property. The monies will be held in a recognised rent deposit scheme and will be returnable subject to any claims that your landlord has against you.
