Fees and Legal Compliance

FEES APPLIED TO STUDENTS BY G4 LETS 

PRIOR TO THE TENANCY START

Holding deposit = equivalent to 1 week’s rent
Balance of deposit = equivalent to 4 week’s rent.
Total deposit therefore equivalent to 5 week’s rent.


DURING THE TENANCY;

  • LOST KEYS- In the event of lost keys we will lend the tenant a key so they may get a replacement key cut. A refundable deposit of £50 is required. If a new key needs to be cut by G4 Lets, the sum of £15 will be required to cover the cost of the new key plus time required to take the original key to be cut at a local shop. £25 inc VAT will be charged for special security keys.
  • LATE RENT FEE- If the rent is more than 14 days late, a late charge of 3% + Bank of England base rate will be charged on a daily basis until the rent is paid.


SHORTENING A TENANCY EARLY

Should all the tenants wish to end a tenancy early, and the Landlord is in agreement bearing in mind he is not under any obligation to agree, then a fee of £50 inc VAT will be charged for ending the tenancy early.

ENDING A TENANCY EARLY

Should a tenant wish to end their tenancy early, a fee equivalent to the cost of the check out report, which is carried out by an independent Inventory Company will be charged, this is normally between £50-£70
