Hobarts Guide to Tenants Fees & Charges


Fees that apply prior to commencement of the Tenancy


Individual Reference (per tenant)

Contract Administration Fee

Individual Reference per Guarantor
£95.00 (* If Required)

Full Company Reference
£260.00 (Company let only)

Inventory ‘Check In’/’Check Out’ Fee

In addition to the above, you will be required to pay one month’s rent in advance along with a tenancy deposit (normally 6 weeks rent) – these terms may vary.

N.B. Each tenancy should have an independent inventory of furnishings, fixtures and fittings in place at the time of commencement of tenancy to safeguard not only the Landlord(s) interest, but your own. Fees vary according to the size of the property. A member of staff will be happy to advise of the application fee on request.

Fees that apply during the Tenancy

Missed/Cancelled appointment(s) £40.00 – If the property you are renting is managed, it is usual for us to carry out a mid-tenancy inspection to asses the condition of the property and any maintenance issues. You will be notified in advance. If access is prevented at a time already agreed and without 24 Hours prior notice of cancellation, Hobarts reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee as above. This fee also applies for missed ‘Check In’ or ‘Check Out’ appointments.

Change of Tenant(s) – During a tenancy it may be possible, subject to Landlord(s) consent and reference being obtained for an individual named tenant to be added, removed or replaced by another. Additional reference and administration fees will apply (see above). These costs are to cover the time and costs involved in implementing the change which include references, conducting new ‘right to rent’ immigration checks, drawing up a new tenancy agreement, re-registering deposits and re-serving of legal documentation and updating records.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Rent arrears are a serious breach of the tenancy and can result in loss of possession and adverse credit judgement. A fee of £18.00 is payable for each formal demand of payment – should the account be in arrears.

Tenancy Renewal Fee – No Charge for tenants

Fees that apply at the end of the Tenancy Agreement

Early Termination of Tenancy – Should you wish to terminate outside of the notice period (this requires the landlord(s) consent), you will be responsible to reimburse the landlords lettings fees on a pro-rata basis. These monies can be deducted from your deposit monies.

NOTE ALL FEES ARE FULLY INCLUSIVE OF VAT – Hobarts reserve the right to amend these terms and fees shall be advertised accordingly.
