Lettings Fees

Credit References

  • Tenants wishing to let a property are subject to satisfactory credit referencing.

Tenants Application

  • To proceed with an application we will require a completed online reference form along with the administration fee (see below).
  • To apply, we will require copy of photo ID and a copy of a current utility bill from your current address.


  • Prior to occupation of a property, the tenant will be required to pay the deposit equal to one month’s rent plus £200, in cleared funds within seven days of the application being approved and at least one day prior to taking up occupation.
  • Please note that in some instances, a larger deposit may be required.
  • The deposit cannot be used by the tenant against rental monies owed.
  • A month’s rent in advance will be payable upon signing the Tenancy agreement - this must be in cleared funds.
  • ehB are members of a regulated Deposit Scheme and, as such, hold the deposit as Stakeholder and will hold the deposit in a separate bank account.


  • In most cases, a professional inventory will be provided at the start of the tenancy with seven days to note any amendments.
  • This inventory will provide the basis for the end of tenancy check out.
  • Note: Failure to return a signed copy of the inventory may affect the arbitration on any dispute that may arise at the end of a tenancy.
  • Should the Landlord not provide an inventory, you as tenant have the right to have one produced and we will be able to advise you of costs in this matter.

Paying the Rent

  • A Standing Order Mandate will be provided at the start of the tenancy for ongoing rental payments.

Utility Bills

  • All bills relating to the property, including TV Licence, BT, Sky and cable will be the responsibility of the tenant unless otherwise indicated.

  • A 3% fee is charged to utilise this facility for UK Credit Cards.

"The stress of moving house and renting a property out is enough for even the strongest to endure, however, having bought our house through ehB Warwick and rented out our previous home through them too, I can honestly say things could not have gone any better. The purchase went without a glitch and the whole process took 8 weeks. ehB worked extremely hard to keep all parties well informed and managed everyone's individual needs well. They found a tenant for us within a day, who moved into our house upon completion of our purchase. We can honestly say that without a doubt we would use ehB in the future and would recommend their services to anyone considering buying, selling or renting a home."
