rent fees and charges

Here at Summit Property we like to keep things simple…

Application Fee

Our Application fee is a flat fee of £100
(Plus £25 for any guarantors) – That’s it!

Holding Deposit

Normally 2 weeks rent

Security Deposit

Usually one month’s rent


What is the application fee for?

This covers your viewings, referencing, paperwork and checkin/checkouts. We charge no other fees, other than a £25 fee for any required guarantors.

What is my holding deposit for?

Once you have paid your holding deposit, we will take the property off of the market so that it is no longer advertised. The holding deposit goes towards your security deposit upon move in.

What happens to my security deposit?

Your security deposit is secured with DPS – The Deposit Protection Scheme.

How long are your tenancy agreements?

We usually offer 6 and 12 months tenancy, with a guarantor required for 12 months tenancies.

What other fees are there?

NONE! We charge nothing to our tenants other than the initial application fee. If you want to renew your tenancy, it’s free of charge.

What if there is a problem at my home?

You can email us at for any non-urgent problems. But if you have an emergency then call the office straight away.
