It is important that you contact the relevant office of Let Easy London as soon as possible in order to register your interest in a particular property.A non-refundable administration fee, listed below, is required to reserve a property, subject to contract.The administration fee must be paid in cleared funds, i.e. debit card, *credit card (*subject to surcharge), cash or bankers draft.Please note that if the tenancy does not proceed due to any of the following circumstances the administration fee will not be refunded;1) Where you or any proposed joint tenant change your mind and withdraw after references have been sought and/or documents prepared and/or preparations for the tenancy put in hand.2) Where the tenancy does not commence within one calendar month of payment of the holding fee because of any action by you (as the property may be taken off the market there will be no possibility of finding another tenant during this period).3) Where you or any proposed joint tenant fail the credit check or we do not receive favourable references from one of your previous landlords.4) Where your references show that you have given misleading or incorrect information which cannot be construed as a mistake.It is important to point out that payment of the non-refundable administration fee does not oblige the landlord to let the property, or any other property, to you and it does not commit the landlord to granting a tenancy or constitute an offer of a tenancy. No interest is payable on the administration fee. The administration fee is fully refundable if the landlord decides not to enter into the tenancy for personal reasons.

You can be assured that any money paid to Let Easy London is safe and secure. As licensed member of PRS (Property Redress Scheme) all monies are protected and bonded.Also your deposit will be registered with The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and you will receive a certificate within thirty days of the commencement of your tenancy to confirm this.
When you first enquire or view a property you will be advised of the date when the property will become available. This information can also be found on the property detail section of our website, and on our printed property lists.As soon as you pay your holding fee, a definitive date for the commencement of your tenancy will be agreed.
When the day arrives for you to take possession of your property we shall have already agreed a convenient time for you to visit our office to collect the keys and complete all the necessary paperwork, unless there will be a professional inventory and check in, you may meet the inventory clerk at the property who will check you in and hand the keys out to you.You will also be provided with a very detailed inventory describing the condition of the property and its contents (this may take anything between 3-14 days from the move in as the whole report is prepared on the day you move in to the property). You will have the opportunity to check the inventory, make any relevant amendments, and return it to us within 48 hours of receiving.Before we can release the keys, all parties aged 18 and over will need to have signed the tenancy agreement, and all remaining monies must be paid in full. We recommend payment by debit card or bankers draft.
It will depend on the length of your tenancy agreement. The most minimum fixed period on an ASTA ( Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement for residential tenancy) is 6 months and the longest is 36 months. After the initial tenancy period runs out, the tenancy runs on a month by month basis.In this instance you would be obligated for the first 6 months, and should you wish to vacate you would need to give two months notice in writing, ending no sooner than the initial 6 months.Should you decide to stay beyond the initial 6 months then this is perfectly acceptable, without the requirement to sign another contract. This is known as a ‘statutory periodic tenancy’ running on a month by month basis on the same terms and conditions.If the landlord requires possession of the property then he would have to provide you with two months notice, again not expiring sooner than the initial 6 months.
Unlike many of our competitors, Let Easy London does not charge automatic renewal fees. Therefore once your tenancy has commenced, you do not need to worry about incurring further administration fees.The only time a fee would apply would be if you requested another fixed term contract once the initial term had expired. In this instance, and assuming the landlord agreed, there would be a charge of £100.00, as well as any re-referencing charges that may apply.
