A holding deposit is what is required to reserve a property once a rental offer is agreed. A holding deposit will be withheld should a tenant or guarantor fail any reference or Right-To-Rent check, if any misleading or false information is given or the tenant does not sign a tenancy agreement within 15 calendar days (unless mutually agreed in writing otherwise).
One weeks rent (per tenancy)
Rent in AdvanceOne month

In a result of a loss where a lock is required to be changed, the costs of a locksmith, a new lock and keys needed for any relevant party will all be charged to the tenant.
