Renewal of Tenancy Fee
If you decide to renew your tenancy agreement after the initial term, there will be a further charge of £65 for the preparation of the tenant's renewal documentation.
It is usually the case that the tenant is responsible for all the utilities supplied to the property i.e. electricity, gas, water and telephone.
The tenant is responsible for this charge and for registering with the relevant local authority.
For leasehold properties, the landlord remains responsible for the payment of the service charge. Some properties have communal heating and/or hot water systems, which are paid for by the service charge.
It is usual for an inventory check to be carried out at the start (“check-in”) and at the end (“check-out”) of every tenancy, by a professional and independent inventory company, on behalf of both the landlord and the tenant.
The inventory is to provide a basis for any claim to be made for cleaning, missing items, breakages or unreasonable damage, which may occur during a tenancy. It also helps to protect a tenant from any unreasonable claims by the landlord. Typically, the landlord pays for the check-in and the tenant pays for the check-out.
