Fees To Tenants
Before You Move In
An agency fee of £240 including vat per person is payable at all times unless a 2 or 3 bedroom property is taken by an individual person, whereby the agency fee payable is £480 including vat.

If a new tenant is moving into the property they will be liable to pay their £240 including vat agency fee.
