We have never charged any administration fees to students to use our service, and we welcomed the Tenants Fees Act in June 2019, which banned other agents from charging initial administration fees.

The following details what you will be expected to pay before moving into a property, as well as during the tenancy. As well as paying the rent, you may also be required to make the following permitted payments;
