Moving into a new rented property is expensive enough without a significant amount of
agency fees being added on top of the deposit and rent. Cross & Prior strongly believe
that you, as a prospective tenant, should know all the costs involved before you invest
time and effort into viewing the properties that you may be interested in.
With this in mind, we are always up-front about our fees and we will provide you with clear
information about our charges before you commit to renting a property through us, in order
to assist you to make more informed choices, and more importantly, help you to avoid being
stung by unexpected costs, as fees can vary tremendously between agents.
Once Cross & Prior have found you an ideal home that suits your needs, we will only charge you an administration fee
on behalf of your landlord to cover the costs of tenant assessments (including credit checks, bank, employments, landlord
references etc.), and preparing and setting up the tenancy as follows:
UK applicants - £90 inclusive of VAT per tenant
UK guarantors - £90 inclusive of VAT per guarantor
Overseas applicants - £120 inclusive of VAT per tenant
Overseas guarantors - £120 inclusive of VAT per guarantor
Company let - £150 inclusive of VAT per tenancy
An administration fee of £150 inclusive of VAT per tenancy will be charged if any amendments to the named tenant(s) or
guarantor(s) are required during the tenancy or guarantor agreement. The above administrative charges will also apply.
Inventory check fees
You will be required to agree to an Inventory check in and check out at the property. If this service is provided by Cross &
Prior, then no inventory checking fees will be incurred, however, if the Landlord has outsourced the Inventory to a specialist
company then there fees will apply, and these costs are fully dependent on the size of the property and the level of fixtures
and fittings and we will inform you of these prior to you agreeing to take up a tenancy.
Cross & Prior aim to make your rental experience more affordable, to ensure your new found home does not become a
financial burden. Unlike many other agents, we have a different approach – we will not charge you for every service we
provide before and during your tenancy, and we are delighted to offer the following free services:
Drawing up the initial tenancy agreement – Free
Deposit protection registration – Free
Tenancy extension and renewals – Free
Cross & Prior is not a member of a client money protection scheme.
If you are unsure of any parts of our charges and services, you should speak to member of our experienced
and expert lettings team to avoid possible confusion and further issues.
