Rent is paid on a calendar monthly basis, in advance, and excludes charges for Services, Council Tax etc.


A deposit will be paid by the tenant, prior to the commencement of the tenancy, equivalent to five weeks rent and it will be returned at the end of the tenancy providing there is no damage, the Inventory is correct and there are no rent arrears. The deposit will be held by the Deposit Protection Service (a custodial service scheme in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Legislation) and returned to you as per the Tenancy Agreement.


Grisdales takes a Holding Deposit from a tenant to reserve a property. This is one weeks rent and for this property will be £185.

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.
