Tenant fees

One tenant moving into a property = £312.00 (inc.VAT)

This covers referencing one tenant (identity, immigration and visa confirmation, financial credit checks, obtaining references from current or previous employers / landlords and any other relevant information to assess affordability) as well as contract negotiation (amending and agreeing terms) and arranging the tenancy and agreement.

Each additional tenant moving into a property will be charged a further £132.00 (inc.VAT) per tenant

If a guarantor is required this will be charged at £72.00 (inc.VAT) per guarantor

The above fees cover all administration and reference charges.

Renewal Fee (per property) £72.00 (inc.VAT)

Rent must be made by a single standing order payment each month. Due to the extra processing time involved, individual rent payments by any other method will be subject to an administration charge of £36.00 (inc.VAT) for each payment. Rent payments made by cheque which fail to clear by the rent due date will be deemed to be late and an administration charge of £42.00 (inc.VAT) will be levied.

It is our policy to recommend legal action to landlords should your rent be more than fourteen days late.


If your rent remains unpaid for seven days a first reminder will be sent with a charge of £42.00 (inc.VAT).

If your rent remains unpaid for fourteen days a second reminder will be sent with a further charge of £42.00 (inc.VAT).

Further reminders may follow at the same seven day intervals thereafter and will be charged at the same rate.


If during the term of your tenancy you lose or damage beyond use any key(s) &/or fob(s) the following charges will apply for replacements and locks if necessary:

Yale key - £5.00 (inc.VAT) per item. UPVC door key - £8.00 (inc.VAT) per item.

Mortise key - £10.00 (inc.VAT) per item. Security key - £15.00 - £60.00 (inc.VAT) per item dependant on type and manufacturers costs.

New lock £230.00 (inc.VAT) per item. Fob/electronic key - £15.00 - £60.00 (inc.VAT) per item.

An additional fee will be incurred if the work is undertaken outside of normal office hours.

If you require the use of keys held by DaBora Conway a deposit of £20.00 will be required. The deposit will be refunded upon return of the key(s). Failure to return the key(s) in the condition issued will default the deposit and result in the above charges for replacement being applied.


These remain the property of DaBora Conway and are erected with the full agreement of the Landlord. You will be charged £42.00 (inc.VAT) in the event that they are removed by you without our authority. DaBora Conway reserves the right to erect a board on the renewal of the tenancy.

A litigators story…

A litigators story…

Tony is Head of the Property Litigation team at Mackrell Turner Garrett Solicitors London office, where he has particular expertise in a wide range of property disputes, residential and commercial, acting for both landlord and tenant.


From his position of experience in litigation, Tony shared this scenario of how a private landlord and tenant arrangement can spiral into a contentious and costly situation:


I do meet many landlords who have rarely had a problem with tenants. However, many Landlords try to avoid costs by doing their own deposit registration and notices. Some use the wrong notices. For instance for arrears cases some do not take any advice on what notice(s) should be served and use a two month notice rather than the quicker notice route based on arrears.


I have in mind the example of the use the “accelerated proceedings” route. Some people find this attractive and at first blush it might be quicker but does not include arrears, and the process if it runs smoothly should in theory get possession earlier.


However if the papers do not look right or the tenant objects the Court may well fix a hearing. Imagine being met at Court with your tenant and the Duty Solicitor who challenges your deposit protection evidence, claiming the deposit was protected late and some of the information served is wrong. Your notice is likely to be ineffective and the claim dismissed. The Court may make an award against you of three times the deposit, and order costs.


Unlike the position where the Tenant is an intermediate body such as a Housing Association or Local Authority and rental is often guaranteed as part of the package, a Private Landlords faces the burden of maintenance and repair without this added benefit. 


We offer clients the opportunity before issue of any proceedings to check if anything is likely to cause a problem and offer constructive strategies to move matters to a satisfactory conclusion.


Of course with correct engagement and prior consultation with industry professionals, scenarios such as this are unlikely to occur which is why my team at Mackrell Turner Garrett covers a comprehensive range of specialisms.
