What can I expect as a tenant?

Wondering how the letting process works? We've broken down the application process for you here...

Deposits explained….

Holding Deposit

The holding deposit is one week’s rent which is paid by you at application stage to hold the property whilst references are taken up on you. This amount is taken once the landlord accepts your application to rent their home. The holding deposit is refundable, most people have this deducted from their first month’s rent but it can also be returned separately if you require.  

Tenancy Security Deposit

By law any money taken from you for a tenancy deposit must be registered within a tenancy deposit protection scheme.  Here at H&H we use TDS, who are a government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme in England and Wales, operated by The Dispute Service Ltd.

Established in 2003, TDS is the longest serving government-approved deposit protection scheme. They are also the only not-for-profit scheme.
