In order to take up a tenancy through Taylor Gibbs you will be asked for a previous landlord, bank, employee and/or character references through our 3rd party referencing company.
You as the tenant are responsible for setting up accounts with the utility companies directly when you move into your property and also when you leave, taking care to provide meter readings at the beginning and end of the tenancy.
The best way to work out the monthly rental payment for a property is to multiply the weekly rent by 52 and divide the total by 12.

For example:
Weekly rent: £300
£300 x 52 = £15,600
£15,600 / 12 = £1300
You will be asked to set up a monthly standing order with your bank.
Generally rent is paid by a standing order mandate and will leave your account 3 days prior to the rental due date in order to be in the recipients account on the due date (The due date is typically, although not always, the date on which you moved in).
Interest will be charged until payment is made. Any problems with rental payments, that may result in late payment, should be conveyed to Taylor Gibbs Property Management if we are managing the property or to the Landlord if they are managing.

As an outgoing tenant typically your costs will be associated with professional cleaning of the property. Any discrepancies between the Inventory and the check-out Inventory may result in deductions from your deposit.
Your deposit will be protected by the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme.
