Tenancy Application Fees


Dove Properties charge "Full Time" Students a Non-Refundable Tenancy Application Fee of £69 (inclusive of VAT) per person when applying for a property. This covers our costs associated in setting up the tenancy.

Student Tenants will also have to pay a deposit of £200 each for a shared house. For an individual 1 bedroom flat for one person the deposit will typically be £400 or an amount equivalent to 1 month's rent.

Are you an Existing Dove Properties tenant? If so you can stay with us for the 2018/19 Academic year and pay only a HALF PRICE admin fee if you stay at the same house, or move to another Dove Property.

For Non "Full Time" Students Dove Properties charge a Tenancy Application Fee of £118.80 (£99 plus VAT) plus VAT per person. The increased cost is due to the extra referencing costs involved for us.

Please note that due to recently introduced "Right to Rent" Immigration legislation we may now need to carry out identity checks on all applicants. All propsective tenants will be asked to provide documentary proof of their "right to rent".
