It is a legal requirement to obtain a valid Energy Performance Certificate for any property going on the market, we use the services of an independent contractor who will assess your property and issue the certificate which lasts for 10 years. He charges £60 for this and will include a comprehensive floor plan to assist with marketing. Other than this there are no hidden fees or sneaky upfront charges and we operate a no sale no fee policy.
Our fee structure is very simple, we will only ask you to pay us what you think is fair for the service we provide, and if we don’t achieve a sale for you there is no charge.
Although we ask you to sign an agency agreement the small print is not complicated and we will not tie you in to a lengthy contract or hold you to a ridiculous notice period if you don’t want us to work for you anymore. In fact if you are not happy with the service we provide we don’t deserve to be selling your house!

WE DO NOT CHARGE OUR TENANTS HIGH FEES!
We ask tenants to pay an administration fee of £120 including VAT per tenancy, not per person! This is to cover tenant referencing and associated admin.
We ask tenants to pay a £300 holding fee for the property which will be deducted from the first months rent. This is refundable should the tenant fail referencing and be unable to take up the tenancy.
We ask our tenants to pay a deposit which is the equivalent of one months rent, this is held for the duration of the tenancy by DPS under their custodial scheme. We will not hold any deposits in our client account.
If pets are allowed at a property we will ask our tenants to pay an additional deposit equivalent to two weeks rent and expect all carpets to have been professionally cleaned at the end of the tenancy.
We advise all landlords to have their property professionally cleaned prior to the first tenant occupation.
We then expect all tenants to present the property cleaned to a professional standard at the end of their tenancy.
