  • NIL Deposit Scheme Offer

    No more costly Deposits for Tenants. The ultimate deposit replacement scheme – Pay less upfront with our NIL Deposit Scheme.

    Finding a deposit when moving into a new rental home can be tough, especially when your previous deposit has not yet been returned, and you’re paying your first month’s rent and the costs associated with moving. Our NIL DEPOSIT SCHEME provides Tenants with an alternative to the traditional 5-week rent custodial deposit scheme.

    Written details available on request.

  • Tenant Fees

    The Tenant Fee Act 2019 restricts the fees and costs that can be charged to Tenants by a Landlord or an Agent for the private rental of a residential property.

    Please refer to our Tenants Fees & Costs Leaflet for information on fees, which may be payable by you.
