PROSPECTIVE TENANTS INFORMATION

If you are interested in renting a property through Anker & Partners, please note the following:

 

Reservation Deposit

To reserve a property, whilst references are being obtained, we will require a deposit equivalent to one weeks rent to be held in our office Clients' Account. If all goes well and you proceed to rent the property, then this money forms part of the tenancy deposit, however, if references are unacceptable due to mis-leading information or you decide not to proceed for some reason, then this money will be non-refundable and will be paid to Anker and Partners to cover their administrative costs incurred.  Should the Landlord decide not to proceed with the application, then this deposit will be refunded in full to you.

 

Office Policy

It is our office policy to make no reservations for a property until we receive all completed application forms and one weeks reservation deposit. Properties will then be reserved on a first come, first served basis.

 

Tenancy Deposit

Once satisfactory references have been obtained, we will require a sum equal to five weeks’ rent as a deposit to be held throughout the tenancy, in lieu of dilapidations. The reservation deposit is used as part payment towards this deposit. When you eventually leave the property and provided that the property is left in Inventory Condition with all appropriate bills having been paid, then the money is returned. If a dispute arises, the deposit will be forwarded to The Dispute Service Ltd – our membership number is - G03046, who will act as adjudicators until such time as the dispute is resolved

 

Rent

Rent is paid on a monthly basis, one month in advance and we suggest this be paid by way of a Bankers Standing Order directly from your account into our office Clients' Account. If; for some reason this arrangement is not possible, then we are prepared to accept a card payment providing this is in our hands well before the due date as we do aim to pass on monies to our Landlord Clients’ Account without delay.

 

Other Outgoings

The rental figures quoted on all of our properties are exclusive of Council Tax, Water Rates and all Utility accounts unless specified otherwise.  Our Landlords are asked to arrange for buildings insurance cover however you will be responsible for all of your personal items and decisions as to whether to insure them or not.

 

Other Charges

Variation of Contract – minimum fee of £50.00 including VAT

Surrender of Tenancy – all outstanding rent up to the end of the Lease Agreement or Landlords costs along with rent up until a new tenant takes up occupancy

Default Fee – 3% above the Bank of England’s base rate from the date payment due up until the date paid 

Lost keys/security devices – cost of replacement chargeable to the tenant

"We used Anker to sell our property earlier this year (2019) and the service was fantastic! We had been on the market a year before with another agent who were fine but decided to get alternative quotes. Jeremy Vasey came and offered realistic advice on the value, areas we could improve (room colours etc.) and time to launch. He was spot on, we sold for asking price in the first couple of weeks. His team (Marie and others) then managed the whole process achieving completion within 7 weeks! Amazing! I would 100% recommend Anker to market your property, a delight to deal with from start to finish."
