We may find and rent a property to you within a matter of days, so you need to understand the rental process before finding a private property to rent. To protect both tenant and landlord rights you will have to go through a series of checks, referencing and sign tenancy agreements. We always want you to rent through us, so we don’t just organise viewings; we help you at every stage of the complex rental process, including making and negotiating an offer.

HomeFinders Administration Fee – £120.00 inc. VAT (£100.00 excl. VAT) per applicant over 18 years of age. This is to cover the cost of taking up references and credit checks.
Bank Reference Fee – usually between £9.60 inc. VAT (£8.00 excl. VAT) / £13.80 inc VAT (£11.50 excl. VAT) dependent upon which bank you are with. This is a charge made by the Bank.
