Our 'fees' and 'terms and conditions' are published on 'application' forms so there are NO hidden charges and you know exactly what you are signing for. Our team will openly answer any questions you may have.

 

Maison Estates is also a member of a client redress scheme operated by 'The Property Ombudsman (TPO)' giving you that added confidence and protection that you are dealing with a professional and established agent.

 

Application Process

Once your 'offer' is accepted you will be required to pay 'application' and 'referencing' fees,  complete 'application' and 'reference' forms to reserve your chosen property.

 

FEES (inclusive of VAT)

Application and administration per property: £150.00 or £250 (where the applicant is a company which includes limited, partnerships and soletraders).

References and searches: £100.00 (per applicant, company which includes limited, partnerships and soletraders), £50 per guarantor.

Renewal of tenancy: £50.00.

Substitution of tenant: £150.00 plus cost of references and searches, per adult (as above).

Addition of a permitted occupier mid tenancy, where permitted by the landlord(s): £50.00

 

Formal 'references and searches' are conducted by Rentshield Direct using the information provided on your application forms. Subject to receipt of satisfactory 'references and searches' we will schedule a mutually convenient date and time (where possible) to sign the tenancy agreement and collection of the advanced rent and security deposit.  You can then take occupation of your new home. Keys and inventory (where applicable) will be handed to you at our offices or by the landlord at the property. Your security deposit will be registered in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme either by us or your landlord within 30 days of receipt as per current legislation 'Housing Act 2004 – Tenancy Deposit Protection'.  You will be issued with 'prescribed information' also refered to as 'Section 213 notice' detailing the relevant tenancy deposit scheme within 14 days of receipt.  Please note 'corporate/company lets' are excluded from this legislation.

 

Please note as part of an application sometimes you may need a 'guarantor' as security where it is deemed necessary who will also undergo the same level of formal checks.

 

Tenancy Renewal

Maison Estates will contact you approximately 2 – 3 months before the end of the tenancy to determine whether you would like to renew your contract for a further fixed term subject to the landlord’s consent.

 

Vacating / check out

In order to help protect the return of your deposit, it is important to return the property in good order and in readiness for subsequent occupancy. Failure to do so may result in a claim against the deposit and additional legal action. The following is a helpful checklist of items you need to address in readiness for returning the property. Please use this in conjunction with your tenancy agreement and an inventory if one was provided. This list is not meant to be exhaustive.

Cancel standing order.
Ensure all keys, fobs, any parking permits, operating manuals etc are ready for handover.
Return items in their original positions.
Clean windows, frames and ledges.
Washable surfaces to be washed and left dust, dirt and stain free.
Ensure curtains and blinds are clean and dust free.
Vacuum all flooring. Have a professional clean conducted to remove any stains/marks.
Furniture to be cleaned and polished.
Kitchen appliances to be thoroughly cleaned (internally and externally).  A professional clean is strongly recommended.
Replace extractor hood filters.
Defrost and wipe out refrigerators and freezers; door(s) to be left open to prevent mould. Switch off appliances.
Baths, W/C’s, shower screens, wash hand basins and kitchen sinks to be cleaned.
Wash mattress and pillow protectors.
Tidy garage and garden(s) ensuring lawns are trimmed.
