What is the deposit for Private Let?

We would suggest the deposit should be the equivalent of a month and a half’s rent for all properties, but this can be at the Landlords discretion and be no more than 2 months rent, an additional pet deposit may also be requested.

How do I receive my rent?

When the tenant pays their first months rent this will be forward to the landlord 7 days after the lease date by BACS payment to a bank account of the landlords choice together with a financial statement forwarded by email and thereafter monthly transfer of rent within 3 days of cleared funds received from the tenant.
