Some of the questions most frequently asked by tenants are answered below. If the information you require is not available here contact us and we will be happy to discuss your query. Please note that this is a general guide only and the specifics of each property may differ slightly.
How much will I have to pay up front to rent a property?
This can vary from property to property, but in general a you will pay one months rent as a deposit and a further one months rent in advance. The deposit is returnable at the end of the let, providing sufficient notice is given and the property is left in a satisfactory condition.
How much does it cost me to rent a property through Advantage?
There is a small charge of £30 per person, or £50 per couple, to complete the Credit Check etc. This fee will only be charged if you are to be offered the tenancy of a property. However, if your Credit Check is not satisfactory then no refund will be given.
For what period of time can I rent a property?
Most of our properties are let on a 6 month tenancy, which can usually be renewed if you wish. This is the terms on which most rentals throughout the letting industry are based, however if you require a shorter let this may be arranged.
What is included in my rent?
This very much depends on the type of property. For shared accommodation such as student bedsits the rent is likely to include Council Tax and electricity for example, whereas for most self contained houses these charges will be the responsibility of the tenant in addition to the rent. Please check the details of each property to see what is included in the rental charge.
How much notice do I need to give to quit the property?
If you no longer require the property one months notice to quit is required in writing, providing you have completed the fixed period of the contract.
