Tenant Fees - Purple Property


Permitted payments, default fees and damages payments which may apply to your tenancy as defined in the tenants fees act 2019

Holding deposit (which will be off set against your first rent payment at the point of moving in)

Once you have provisionally been accepted by the landlord subject to contract and references the holding deposit becomes payable, this will not be refunded should you provide false or incorrect information. unilaterally withdraw your application or fail to take all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement within the agreed timescale. The holding deposit will be one weeks rent. The calculation for this is as follows: Multiply the monthly rent x 12 (months in the year) then divide by 52 (weeks in the year). E.G. Rent of £1,000 pcm x 12 = £12,000 p.a. ÷ 52 = £230.77. all applications are subject to the landlords approval.


All deposits are one calendar month this covers and damages or defaults by the tenant.
