Paying your rent
During your contract signing appointment you will be required to pay your first months rent and the bond deposit. At contract signing. If we are managing your property then it is our job to collect the rent on the landlord’s behalf and payments will be collected by direct debit. You will be given a direct debit form for completion during your contract signing. Should we not be managing your property you will be given the contact information for your Landlord who will arrange a suitable way for you to pay then the rent each month.
The agreed monthly rent for your new home will be confirmed during the booking process and documented in your contract. Your rent is due on the 1st of every month. For convenience we will collect your rent by direct debit to avoid you having to remember to make payment each month. All you need to do is make sure that there are sufficient funds in your designated bank account ready for the 27th of each month which is when the direct debit will be applied for. Funds will be collected from one account per household for the full amount as stipulated on the contract. Depending on your circumstances an the landlords requirements you may be required to pay in advance i.e quarterly and this will be stipulated in your contact.
‘Let Only’ Houses
Each landlord has different preferences on how they chose to collect the rent. We will make sure you know during your contract signing appointment the payment arrangements specific to your tenancy. Depending on the time of year that the contract is signed and how soon after that you will be moving in will depend on what budgeting you will need to make.
