A fair service for tenants

Becoming a tenant with Able Property Trust

To rent a property through Able Property Trust, you need to be aware of the following requirements:

Our fees – You will need:

  • One month’s rent in advance
  • A holding deposit equivalent to one month’s rent, refundable at the end of your tenancy
  • Tenancy agreement fee of £200.00 – This fee covers all reference checks, credit checks and the drawing up of your contract. This one-off fee is charged at the start of your tenancy and is charged for the contract in its entirety, not for how many people are being added to the contract, i.e. the fee is still £200.00, whether there is one person or three people on the same contract. Renewals, if required by you, the tenant, are charged at just £75.00
  • Fee to register your deposit – £12.00 (This fee goes to mydeposits.co.uk and not to us)

Your holding deposit is lodged with mydeposits.co.uk for the full term of your tenancy to ensure it remains protected.

PLEASE NOTE: As of 1ST June 2019, the government’s tenant fee ban bill will come into force and any fees currently listed above will no longer be applicable after this date.


References – You will also need to provide references from your:

  • Current landlord or mortgage lender
  • Current employer
  • Some form of ID (e.g. Passport / Driving Licence / NI Number)

Terms and conditions

  • All rental payments to be made by standing order on the first of every month
  • Decorating in properties is only allowed if written permission is given by Able Property Trust
  • LENGTH OF INITIAL TENANCY: either 6 or 12 months
