Other fees

Assignment of Tenancy Fee

£79.50 per tenant

It is not encouraged for the occupants of the property to change during the fixed terms of the tenancy. However, we understand that occasionally there is no choice. In these circumstances:

You will all jointly be responsible for finding a suitable replacement. We will seek to obtain rent from the outgoing tenant until the replacement tenant completes the relevant Assignment form. If this is not forthcoming, all remaining joint tenants will continue to be liable.

Once a replacement tenant has been agreed on by the remaining housemates an appointment needs to be made for the completion of the assignment. This needs to be signed by all parties involved to make the document legal. There is a charge payable of £79.50 to the leaving tenant for this process.

Full payment of deposit, admin fee and first instalment of rent, together with a direct debit mandate will be required for the remaining term of the tenancy. In the interest of the tenants remaining in the property a guarantor for any incoming tenant will be requested and only the ongoing tenants can sanction that they do not want this guarantor.

Other Fees and costs may apply during the tenancy such as late payment fees, charges for lost keys and change of locks etc but all these will be clearly outlined in your tenancy agreement and/or your terms and conditions.
