We have just bought a property in Sandbach. We don't live in the area so we were really happy with the way Sue helped us out, kept us up to date and took care of everything all through the purchase process. Our situation changed during the purchase which caused a bit of a delay but Sue took everything in her stride and it all went without a hitch. A delight to work with!...

Dear Vivianna. I'm sorry to hear that we did not meet you expectations. The Tenancy Deposit Scheme ask us to return deposits within 10 days of you leaving the property. I understand that we completed your check out on Wednesday pm and the file was passed to me late on Thursday pm to arrange a payment of your deposit in full. This left our account today within three working days of your check-out. Whilst this is within our normal service standards clearly we had not explained this fully hence I ...

We recently purchased a property through Northwood, from the moment we rang to make an appointment to view the property we were instantly impressed with the service received from Susan Radcliffe. Consequently when it came to selling our property a few weeks later, we opted to use Northwood as our agents. Through out both the sale and purchase of the two properties, Susan has been fantastic, very approachable and unbelievably helpful, more than exceeding our expectations throughout the process ...

I contacted Northwood two years ago following a recommendation from another landlord with regard to letting out my property. My initial contact was Andrew Heath who took me clearly and concisely through the procedure. Within two days of my property being on the market I had approx. 6 people applying to be tenants. The people that rented my property for 2 years have just vacated, the property will only have been empty for 3 weeks when my new tenant moves in. Any questions that have arisen either ...

Living in London, some distance from our property, we needed someone reliable who would look after our interests and Northwood have certainly delivered on that. They deal with any issues with the minimum of fuss and always check with us before proceeding to resolution....

We had an oven that died on us and after contacting Northwood we had a replacement very quickly. Unfortunately there was a fault and the new one stopped working after a couple of months. Northwood contacted the manufacturer for us. Thank goodness for Suzanne who worked tirelessly to get this sorted as the manufacturer was a total nightmare. Without her it would have been incredibly stressful. She went out of her way to chase them until it got sorted. Thank you Suzanne. We now enjoy roast dinner ...

Northwood, Sandbach have managed a number of properties for me for many years now. Service has always been great! They go the extra step to make my life easier, for example Rena managed fire regulation remedial works with the council and arranged contractors to complete the work at competitive prices. I work away much of the time and Northwood take away the hassle! Great work. Thanks!...

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: Β£150.00 inc. VAT
II. Couples: Β£300.00 inc. VAT
III. Additional applicant: Β£150.00 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 Β£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 Β£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.

He or she has an honest and sincere desire to resolve your complaint as soon as possible and should respond within ten working days.

2. Making a formal complaint

If for whatever reason you remain dissatisfied then you should write or email us. Please provide full written details of your complaint and copies of any supporting evidence. The Complaints Officer, who will provide an independent review of the complaint, will investigate your complaint.
