Fees

Tenant Fees

When you decide to rent a home, you need to budget not just for the monthly rent and household bills, but also the initial costs. Your agent will normally ask you to pay a deposit and an administration charge in addition to the rent.

Deposit
The value of the deposit may vary depending on your personal circumstances, but will be equal to at least one month’s rent.

When you find a property that you like, the agent may ask you to pay a reservation fee in order to process your application. The amount of this payment will form part of the total deposit if your application is successful.

This payment is non-refundable should you not wish to progress with the application, but will be returned to you in the event the landlord is unable to proceed.

When the tenancy starts, you will be asked to pay the balance of the deposit less any reservation fee paid already. This payment must be in cleared funds to enable the tenancy to commence.

Administration Charge*
Once your offer is accepted, we ask you to pay an administration charge to cover the costs of referencing and initial checks, and a contribution towards the preparation of the tenancy agreement and inventory.

Our charges are:

I. Single person: £225.00 inc. VAT
II. Couples: £300.00 inc. VAT
III. Additional applicant: £75.00 inc. VAT

* This is a non-refundable payment, should you not proceed with the tenancy we reserve the right to retain your reservation fee to meet any reasonable costs or loss of rent whilst the property was withdrawn from the market. This may apply whether you withdraw from the tenancy or are unable to proceed due to adverse references.

Other charges
Depending on your personal circumstances and the progression of your tenancy, we may also ask you to pay other fees and charges. If we do, we will explain these to you at the time.

Guarantor
If you are a student, are unemployed or on a low income, you will need a guarantor. We will charge a fee of £50.00 inc. VAT for carrying out reference checks on the guarantor.

The guarantor will be asked to read your tenancy agreement and sign a guarantor agreement before the tenancy starts.

Renewal Charge
Tenancies are normally renewed every six months. Each time you decide to renew the tenancy for a further term, a charge of £39.95 inc. VAT will be made. This amount is payable in advance, and must be received prior to a new contract being signed.

Check out
A check out fee may apply depending on the type of property, please check for clarification as this fee may vary.


Please note: at times we may accept payment for some of these fees by credit card. Should this be the case, there will be a charge added to reflect the amount that we will have to pay for the transaction. We will always tell you if we have to make any charges when accepting payments.

Complaints Procedure

Northwood is committed to the highest standards of service and compliance. Each of our branches is bound by the Property Ombudsman’s Code of Practice.

We understand that sometimes things can go wrong and if they do we are committed to resolving problems with the minimum of inconvenience.

Our complaints procedure has been structured to ensure that any concerns are dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. Should you require assistance with this process, please email us at customerservice@northwooduk.com . Whilst we cannot deal directly with your complaint, we are here to help.

We have a standard procedure for handling complaints which is as follows:
1. Making a complaint
Each office is independently owned and operated and has a local Director who will be, in part or in whole, an owner of the branch. In the first instance your complaint should be directed in writing to the local Branch Manager. Your complaint will be acknowledged within 3 working days. The branch will conduct a full and thorough investigation and a full written response will be sent within 15 working days.
2. If you remain dissatisfied
If you feel the matter remains unresolved you should write to the Director at the relevant Northwood office explaining why you are unhappy with the response. The Director will conduct a comprehensive review of your complaint and will give a final viewpoint in writing within 10 working days.
3. Independent redress
In the unlikely event that you are still dissatisfied then you may refer the matter to the Property Ombudsman at the following address:

The Property Ombudsman
Milford House
43-55 Milford Street
Salisbury
Wiltshire
SP1 2BP
4. What next?
You will receive written confirmation from the Property Ombudsman that your complaint form has been received. They will write to the branch, enclosing a copy of your complaints form, and request their file and a statement describing their version of events.

The matter will be referred to a case officer who will review the complaint together with the response from the branch and make a recommendation to the Ombudsman who will make a final decision which is binding upon the branch in question.
