  4. References & Tenant Application Form

    Having identified a property to rent we will ask you for a £200 (inc VAT) administration fee and £30 (inc VAT) for referencing. The Tenant Application Form will need to be completed. Please see Information For Prospective Tenants for further details.

  5. Lease Preparation

    The JGL 6 Month Assured Short hold Tenancy Agreement contains the latest legal requirements, this will be signed by each tenant over the age of 18. Please read the agreement carefully before signing.

  6. Tenancy Deposit Scheme

    A deposit against damage to the property is required prior to entry. Legislation requires this money to be held in a Government approved scheme during the tenancy. The deposit amount varies with regard to each individual property but is generally one months rent plus £50. Your deposit is refundable at the end of the tenancy, subject to the property being returned in a satisfactory condition.

  7. Inventory & Schedule of Condition

    Prior to moving into the property an Inventory of the contents and Schedule of Condition will be taken. This document protects you the tenant as much as the Landlord.  £75 (inc VAT)

  8. Rent

    The first month’s rent is payable in advance, prior to commencing the tenancy. The monthly rent is then paid by Standing Order on the 1st day of each month.

  9. Move In

    An appointment will be made to show you into the property and to read the electricity and gas meters. JGL will organise the transfer of accounts for all utility services and Council Tax into your name, for your convenience.
