Please note that Inventory charges only apply if the Landlord wishes to proceed with a professional Inventory.

Professional Cleaning

If the property has been professionally cleaned prior to the tenant (s) moving in, the tenant (s) will be liable to pay for a professional clean to the same standard when the tenant (s) vacate the property. Realm Estates can recommend Professional Cleaning Companies that are used frequently by us.

Payments

All move in monies must be paid to Realm Estates and must be received into our account at least one week prior to the commencement of the tenancy. The funds must be cleared funds and Tenants should be aware that banks generally require three working days for a bank transfer and longer if transferring funds from overseas. We are not able to release keys until all the move in money has been paid and all the Tenants have signed the contract.

Monthly rental payments must be paid by standing order from the second month onwards and only one standing order can be accepted. Therefore, Tenants who share a property will need to set up a house account or organise payments to be made through one Tenants’ bank account, the reference for payment should be the property address. Please do allow three working days for payments to arrive into the payee’s account and it will usually be due on the same day as the commencement of the tenancy.
