White Tiger Estates will charge:

A fixed tenancy fee per applicant (non-refundable)

A holding deposit equivalent to one week’s rent, but which will be offset against the deposit should the tenancy be accepted (please go to ‘Holding Deposit’ and ‘Deposit’ for more information).



You will be required to also pay, prior to move in:

One month’s rent (unless a longer period is agreed)

A security deposit usually equivalent to 6 weeks’ rent (if a holding deposit was paid initially it will be offset against this)

(Please be aware the above may alter depending on individual circumstances).




Renewal of Tenancy

Upon renewal a fee is payable.

Payment of rent

The first instalment of rent must be paid in cleared funds prior to move in. Thereafter, rent should be paid by standing order on the first working day of the month.



Holding Deposit

The holding deposit is non-refundable should you:

  • decide not to proceed,
  • provide incorrect information, or
  • have adverse credit/negative references which you fail to disclose prior to payment of the holding deposit and submission of the application form.


Deposit

A security deposit or 'bond’ equivalent to six weeks’ rent must be paid in cleared funds prior to move in and is held by My Deposit Custodial Scheme for the duration of the tenancy in accordance with the terms of the tenancy agreement and where applicable White Tiger Estates will register the deposit monies with a deposit protection scheme on the landlord’s behalf.

White Tiger Estates excludes liability in relation to loss caused by the insolvency of a financial institution which holds deposits in its contracts with landlords and tenants.

All deposit deductions must be agreed in writing by both landlord and tenant upon the termination of the tenancy.

The tenancy agreement entered into is between the landlord and the tenant and, therefore, the tenant cannot hold White Tiger Estates liable for any deductions made from the deposit which may fall into dispute.



References/identification

We will take up references based on the details that you have supplied to us. These references may be passed to our client so that they can make a decision on granting a tenancy.

You are responsible for any administration charges levied by your own bank in relation to obtaining a reference.

Before the tenancy can proceed you need to provide us with a photo ID in the form of a passport or EU driving license, copy of a utility bill and bank statement (no older than 3 months).



Check-in and check-out

White Tiger Estates will be instructed by the landlord as to what arrangements are to be made for the inventory and check-in.

Unless agreed otherwise, the landlord will be responsible for the arrangement and cost of the inventory check-in and check-out.



Management of the property

At the start of the tenancy we will advise you who is responsible for managing the property and carry out repairs. This is not always White Tiger Estates.

Where the property is an ex-Local Authority (Council flat) we cannot authorize any repairs or maintenance or guarantee the speed at which repairs will be carried out.



Insurance

It is your responsibility to insure your own belongings throughout the tenancy.



Utilities

You will be responsible for the payment of telephone, internet, cable TV, gas, water and electricity accounts at the property during your tenancy, as well as the council tax. It is your responsibility to notify the relevant companies and the local authority that you are moving into/out of the property.

You are also responsible for ensuring that a valid television license remains in place for the duration of the tenancy. Utility companies will also always require the occupant to provide access for any visit.



VAT

Charges levied by White Tiger Estates are not currently subject to VAT.

Amendments

White Tiger Estates reserves the right to change the schedule of fees and these terms of business upon providing reasonable notice in writing.
