Please discuss this with your Adleo consultant, and they will help you choose the best course of action.

Relocation Costs FAQ

What do I need to pay before moving into a new property?

You will usually be required to pay a holding deposit, security/damage deposit, and the first month’s rent.

What is a holding deposit?

The holding deposit is another name for a reservation fee, paid to the agent as an agreement that you will be going ahead with the property. In return, the agent should remove the property from the market and cease further viewings. The holding deposit may be non-refundable if you back out of the deal but it will also be deducted from the first month’s rent if you proceed.

12 months is usually the starting point for negotiations; however, you can often be expected to sign a longer contract of 18, 24 or 36 months.

Can I break my contract early if I need to?
