Tenant Services

Renting a Property

If you find a property you like, you will be asked to pay a non refundable Administration and Referencing fee to hold the property pending satisfactory referencing. Once received, a mutually convenient date will be arranged for you to sign contracts, pay your first months rent in advance and deposit. The deposit is currently one and a half times the monthly rental amount but may change pending new legislation. You will then be given the keys to your new property.


The deposit as detailed above (the value of one and a half times the monthly rental amount) is held by Halcyon as a stakeholder and registered with TDS (Tenancy Deposit Service). Following the formal checkout at the end of your tenancy, it is refunded, subject to any agreed deductions as required by the tenancy agreement and the inventory.
Halcyon House does not pay interest on any deposit monies held.

Rent Collection and Utilities

Rent is payable monthly in advance, by Standing Order. Utility accounts (Gas, Water, Electricity and Council Tax) are all informed by Halcyon of your tenancy start and finish dates. You are responsible for paying the bills for the duration of your tenancy.
