Tenant Guide

Holding Deposit 

Once the Landlord agrees to go ahead with your reference check and is willing to cease marketing the property due to your offer, we will ask you to pay a holding deposit. The Landlord’s final acceptance will be subject to your satisfactory references.

Your holding deposit will be handled as follows:

If the Tenancy goes ahead, this holding deposit becomes part of the Tenancy Security Deposit (usually set between 6-8 weeks rent).

Please be advised that we will be unable to refund your holding deposit in the following cases:

(a)   You decide not to proceed with the rental of the property and withdraw your application for any reason other than the Landlord's rejection of your offer.

(b)  Your references are deemed to be unsatisfactory by a professional reference check company.     

(c)   Your references are found not genuine or include any type of false information.  

If the Landlord decides not to let the property to you for any reason other than those mentioned above, the holding deposit paid will be refunded to you less the cost of any reference checks carried out.

In the event that Tempocasa is required to return the Holding Deposit to you this will be by bank transfer or cheque (please allow 4 to 5 working days for this to clear).


Please ensure you can provide full references or alternatively apply via a UK Guarantor. Tempocasa can obtain credit/reference checks via a professional referencing company at a cost specified later. Please note: this service is mandatory for Guarantor applications, but optional for standard tenant applications.
