DEPOSITS

Our deposits are equal to the monthly rental amount (minimum £350.00) which will be placed, by law, in a tenancy deposit scheme. Should you conduct the tenancy in a satisfactory manner and the property is handed back in a clean and damage free condition, the deposit should be returned with no problems.
