When a suitable property to rent has been found ALL persons aged eighteen or over will complete an Application Form and will be named in the Tenancy Agreement. We will take up references on behalf of our client, the Landlord, which may include a credit reference, an employer's / accountant's and previous landlord reference (if applicable). A payment to indicate your commitment is required when you submit your application and is held against expenses. The payment is non-refundable should your application be unsuccessful or withdrawn. Please note that this money in advance does not constitute a tenancy and is the administration fee that is payable to Anthony Fox Estate Agents.
Before your tenancy commences you will be required to pay a 6 weeks damage deposit. This deposit is held by Anthony Fox Estate Agents as stakeholders or passed to the landlord.
The deposit is held against any damages or expenses arising during your tenancy and will not be released until after you vacate the property, all rent has been paid up to date and we have written confirmation of any costs for damages from both parties. No interest is payable to either party.
Tenancy Deposit Protection
From 6 April 2007 when you pay a deposit for an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, your landlord or agent must protect it using a government authorised tenancy deposit scheme. This is to ensure you get all or part of your deposit back when you are entitled to it and any disputes will be easier to resolve. Within 30 days of paying your deposit your landlord or agent is required to give you details about how your deposit is protected. This includes the contact details of the tenancy deposit scheme and what to do if there is a dispute at the end of the tenancy.

Inventory and Schedule of Condition
An Inventory and Schedule of Condition of the property, its contents, furniture, fittings and effects will normally have been prepared. It is important that you take care in agreeing the Inventory at the beginning of your tenancy as it will form the basis of any claim for damages, by your landlord.
All rent is payable in advance by standing order. Should you experience any financial problems during the course of the tenancy it is essential that you contact Anthony Fox Estate Agents or your Landlord immediately.
You should be aware that responsibility for the property rests with the tenant during any tenancy. It is particularly important that any gas or electrical problems or water leaks are reported immediately and the property is fully secured when you leave it unattended at any time.
In leasehold properties, mainly flats and maisonettes, the tenant will be bound by the rules and regulations affecting all residents within the block contained in the head lease.
