We collect a deposit from the tenant in case of any damage to the property, and this is put into a Government approved The Deposit Protection Service (DPS). At the end of the Tenancy we will carry out a full inspection to your property and deduct for any damages should there be any. Any disputes will be handed to the Dispute Resolution Service at (DPS).
We will draw up a Legal Tenancy Agreement to cover a period of 6 months, after the initial 6 months the tenancy agreement runs a 1 month periodic basis. This gives you the landlord the flexibility to get the property back by giving 2 months notice. It also gives the Tenant the right to give you 1 months notice to vacate.
