We are frequently approached by applicants wishing to rent a property but are concerned or confused about the costs involved.  We like to be utterly transparent about these matters so have created this overview about costs facing tenants. 


No tenant fees applicable.   A deposit equivalent to 1x the monthly rental cost will be payable by the tenant prior to ingoing, together with payment of rent for the first month in advance.

  • Utility bills (water, electricity and gas)
  • Telephone, internet and cable/satellite TV
  • Oil (if applicable)
  • Television licence
  • Contents insurance for personal belongings
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax on rents that exceed £125,000 cumulatively
