A deposit will be paid by the tenant, prior to the commencement of the tenancy, equivalent to five weeks rent and it will be returned at the end of the tenancy providing there is no damage, the Inventory is correct and there are no rent arrears.

From taking the Holding Deposit the tenancy agreement must be entered into (signed by both parties and dated) before the Deadline for Agreement.

Should the tenancy commence, unless the tenant advises otherwise in writing, it is agreed that the amount of the Holding Deposit will be deducted from the first payment of rent.
