Tenants’ Guide to Fee

Paul Meakin Estate Agents, 77-79 Mitchley Avenue, Sanderstead, Surrey. CR2 9HN
It is important that you read it carefully so as not to delay the securing of a property.


When a suitable property to rent has been found ALL persons aged eighteen or over will need to complete an Application Form and will be named in the Tenancy Agreement. References will be taken up, which may include a credit reference, an employer’s reference, an accountant’s reference if applicable and a previous landlord reference.

A payment to indicate your commitment is required when you submit your application and is held against expenses and fees incurred. The payment is non-refundable should you change your mind. If however the Landlord turns you down on referencing or withdraws the property from the market you will be partly refunded.

Please note that this payment does not constitute a tenancy or offer of a tenancy but is proof of your serious intention to proceed.


Before any tenancy begins you will sign a Tenancy Agreement setting out the landlord’s and tenant’s obligations. Once the Tenancy Agreement has been signed by you and the landlord it is legally binding.

Should you change tenants at any point during the tenancy you must inform us and, subject to your landlord’s agreement (which might include the need to take up new references) we will prepare new documents for signature.


You will be required to pay a security deposit which will be a minimum of one and a half month’s rent. The deposit is held against any damages or expenses arising during your tenancy and will not be released until after you have vacated the property, the Landlord/Agent has inspected, all rent is up to date and any damages or expenses have been agreed by all parties. The deposit will be secured into an authorised Tenancy Deposit Scheme. Details about how your deposit is protected will be given at time of sign up which includes the contact details and what to do if there is a dispute between Landlord and Tenant where the TDS will adjudicate.

No interest on the deposit is payable to either party.
