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.

If during the process something becomes known such as false or misleading information, which you should have informed us, the Landlord can decide they no longer wish to proceed with the tenancy. Realm Estates are unable to refund any monies held if unsatisfactory references are received, deliberate misrepresentation, or attempts by the tenant to alter the terms of the initial proposed contract or if the Tenant chooses not to proceed.
