The booking fee is the income for us to be paid by the Landlord. This covers the work necessary to facilitate a tenant moving into a property. This is specific to the tenant’s requirements and the tenant’s moving in logistics. This also secures the property for your time of arrival.

This covers time spent on viewings, sharing our local knowledge to help you make an informed choice and making sure the landlord is accepting of your terms of residency.

This fee also covers the negotiations we have already in place which means that as a professional person staying in one of our properties our referencing is personalised and specific and therefore does not incur credit referencing fees.

This covers the negotiations and landlord training that we have undertaken to ensure you do not have to sign a contract tying you to a specific period, as well as persuading the landlord not to require a security deposit.

The booking fee covers a considerable amount of vetting and persuasion to convince a landlord not to require a six month commitment. We have also encouraged the landlord to provide value for money, all inclusive accommodation without the expectations prolific in these parts connected to holiday lets. It also means that we have facilitated a stay where in real terms you do not have to pay a notice period if your contract is suddenly cancelled.

The booking fee also covers the time taken to assist your transfer from your arrival port to the property seven days a week and up to 19.00 pm. making the whole experience more welcoming. We also recognise that you need provisions before settling into your property as you may be expected on shift immediately and therefore we will facilitate a brief shopping trip (if requested) on the route to your accommodation.

The booking fee relates to the room let so is payable at the start of each new stay.

In conclusion, the booking fee saves you a considerable financial outlay as we vet our professionals before placement.
