Let Leeds Tenant Fees

It's our policy to be up front, fair and transparent with our fees, so take a look at our fee structure below.

Tenancy Fees

Let Leeds do not charge any application, referencing, Guarantor or renewal fees.

To reserve a property, all we require is a Holding Deposit of one week’s rent. This will reserve the property for you, for up to 15 days whilst we complete your Tenancy applications.

Please be sure to ask whether the property you are applying for is managed by Let Leeds.

All Tenancies managed by Let Leeds receive a friendly, down to earth and personal service, as well as a swift maintenance response.

Where the property is managed by Let Leeds, we will negotiate and agree terms with the Landlord, complete all Tenant application and referencing, draw up and arrange the signing of your Tenancy Agreement, conduct a check in report or inventory for your property as well as arrange for the deposit to be held with the DPS whilst you are a Tenant.

There may be some default fees due to Let Leeds, which are provided in the Tenancy Agreement, if you lose your keys or fail to pay your rent on time.

Let Leeds provide draft Tenancy Agreements on request to read thoroughly at any time.


  • If you choose to withdraw after acceptance, or undeclared adverse information is uncovered during referencing, then you may lose your Holding Deposit. Full Holding Deposit terms will be provided to you on our Pre-Tenancy Agreement prior to payment of your Holding Fee.
  • Prior to picking up keys, we must have received the first month's rent and remainder of the deposit paid. Funds must be cleared before keys can be released.
  • If you are in any doubt whatsoever as to what is included within the property, for example furniture or appliances, you should seek further clarification prior to submitting your application.

Holding Deposit

Equivalent to 1 week's rent, the Holding Deposit will reserve the property for 15 days whilst you complete your application. Once all your application documents have been completed and your Tenancy Agreement is signed, the Holding Deposit then becomes part of your Deposit for the property.

Your Deposit will be secured in a Government-backed Deposit Protection Scheme called the DPS where it will stay secure until the end of your Tenancy. The Holding Deposit is non-refundable should you withdraw from the property application, provide false or misleading information, fail Right to Rent checks and unable to enter the agreement within the agreed 15 days.


You will require a Guarantor if:

  • You are not in full time employment, or earning less than 36 x the monthly Rental amount agreed
  • You have no history of renting previously or cannot provide a previous Landlord reference
  • You have a poor credit rating
  • You have been in a new job less than 6 months

The Guarantor will be a third party, such as a parent or close relative, who agrees to pay your rent if you fail to pay it, and must earn in excess of £25,000, or at least 36 x the monthly rental agreed. The Guarantor will be credit checked as part of the application process, so it's important to ask them in advance. Your Landlord can take legal action to recover any unpaid rent directly from your Guarantor if you don't pay your rent.

Late Payment Fees

Your rent is due on the day stated in your Tenancy Agreement. It's really important that you pay your rent on time every month or quarter. If you don’t, it may cause problems for your Landlord.

Return of Rent Overpayment

Make sure that you cancel your Standing Order with your bank straight after your last rental payment. This does not happen automatically! It's not easy for us to get any overpayment back to you right away and may take up to 14 days.

Assisted Check-In

For those who would prefer a personal assisted check-in to their property, we advise you to book a move in date during the week, where we have better resources to provide an assisted move in to your property. Please note we cannot offer an assisted check in on a Saturday, and we are closed on Sundays for a little rest.
