As well as paying the rent, you may also be required to make the following permitted payments before the tenancy starts (payable to Hunter Leahy 'the Agent'):
  • Holding Deposit: 1 week's rent 
  • Deposit: 5 weeks' rent 

The holding deposit, the equivalent of one week's rent, will be allocated to the first month's rent once satisfactory references have been received. The holding deposit is non refundable, if a tenant withdraws their application once referencing has commenced or, if misleading information is provided or information is withheld on the application form.
