Fees - Reeds Rains Rhyl

What fees can I expect to pay if I rent a property with Reeds Rains in Wales?

When you have decided to apply for a property to rent, Reeds Rains will provide you with a Tenancy Fee Declaration form. This form helps explain the next stages of your application and the fees due before you sign your Tenancy Agreement. The Renting Homes (Fees etc) (Wales) Act 2019 came into force on 1 September 2019 which makes it illegal for Landlords or letting agents to charge fees to tenants apart from a small number of exemptions that re referred to as Permitted Payments.

At any time you are interested in a property, just ask the branch staff about any fees which may be payable. Above is a list of our current fee scales.

All fees are non-refundable, however, if the application passes the credit check and the landlord declines to proceed, a full refund will be made.

We are required by law to carry out a Right to Rent check on all occupiers over the age of 18, irrespective of whether they are a tenant or a permitted occupier. This is entirely separate from tenant referencing and there is no charge for this. Your local branch will advise you as part of the application process.
