Grisdales takes a Holding Deposit from a tenant to reserve a property. This is one weeks rent and for this property will be £155.00

This Holding Deposit will be held for up to 15 days (what is known as Deadline for Agreement). From taking the Holding Deposit the tenancy agreement must be entered into (signed by both parties and dated) before the Deadline for Agreement. However, Grisdales can agree with the tenant in writing that a different date (for example an extension) is to be the Deadline for Agreement. Please make your own enquiries as to when the Holding Deposit can be repaid to you and when it can be retained by Grisdales.

Should the tenancy commence, unless the tenant advises otherwise in writing, it is agreed that the amount of the Holding Deposit will be deducted from the first payment of rent.

You are required to have sufficient means to cover your liability for the Landlord s fixtures and fittings as set out in the Tenancy Agreement. Sufficient means includes a sum of money available to put right any damage, or alternatively you could purchase a suitable insurance policy to cover this liability.

The Landlord s insurance policy does not cover your possessions within the property. You are advised to consider the need for Tenants Insurance, which usually includes cover for your own possessions and accidental damage to the Landlord s items. Please see Grisdales for full details on this.

The Landlord will not be responsible for any damage caused to your belongings unless it is caused by an act or omission by the Landlord or Agent, which invalidates any insurance you do have.
