  • Reservation Fee
    A reservation fee of £500.00 (incl. VAT) will be received to secure the property during the referencing stage and will form part of your initial payment prior to occupation of the property. It is held by RE/MAX Royals as stakeholders between the parties. This reservation fee is non-refundable except in the circumstances that the landlord changes his/her/their mind about letting the property.

You have also confirmed that you intend to use the property as your main or only residence, that the detailed information you have given in the referencing form is correct and that you agree to references being taken from the referees, as stated.
  • One months’ rent in advance
    (Up to 6 months’ rent may be requested if you do not satisfy the income requirements or are unable to provide a satisfactory UK guarantor. In this instance, you will most likely be a student from overseas. Guarantors from overseas are not acceptable. Therefore 6 months’ rent in advance is required and the subsequent monthly rent will be payable from the end of the first month.)

Taking up references
RE/MAX Royals engage an independent referencing company to perform reference checks. All prospective tenants will be asked to complete an application form. Once the form is submitted, it typically takes 72 to 96 hours to finish the report. In order to avoid any hold-ups in the referencing process, please kindly inform & authorise your landlord, employer, accountant (if any) and personal referee to respond to the referencing company without delay.

Tenancy Agreement
After the referencing stage, the tenancy agreement (a legally binding document between the landlord and you) will be drawn up. This agreement must be signed by all tenants and the landlord (or RE/MAX Royals on the landlord’s behalf).

Standing Order Mandate
You will be asked to sign a standing order mandate to make monthly rental payments to the landlord /RE/MAX Royals. If you pay rent directly to your landlord’s bank account and your landlord is not resident in the UK, you will be responsible for applying the provisions of the HM Revenue and Customs Non-Resident Landlords scheme for taxing UK rental income and should ask us for advice on this. This may mean that you have to deduct tax from the rent and pay to HM Revenue and Customs on behalf of your landlord. These provisions do not apply where you are paying your rent to RE/MAX.

During the tenancy (if applicable)

  • No tenancy renewal fees.
  • £25.00 (incl. VAT) per late rent payment letter.
  • Interest charges of 4% above the base lending rate from time to time of Barclays Bank Plc will apply on any amounts owed to the landlord or RE/MAX Royals not paid on the due date.
  • In the event that you wish to terminate your tenancy before the end of the term and the landlord is agreeable to early termination, you will be responsible for the repayment of the pro-rata commission paid in advance to the landlord for the unexpired segment of the tenancy. This does not apply if you are exercising a break clause which is contained in your tenancy agreement.
