Looking to rent?

Renting is a great way to enable you to live in an area that you love. It provides you with flexibility, is a great way to meet new people if you opt for a house share and means you can go where your career or studies take you easily.

Just like buying a house, you need to budget for rent, household bills and the initial costs – administration charges and a deposit – but it isn’t always as expensive as it’s made out.

Although the deposit is refundable upon the ending of your tenancy, some fees including the application charge and a guarantor are non-refundable. But, at Crucible we keep things as affordable as possible.

Below is a breakdown of our fees. For further information please either pop into one of our branches or give us a call.

As we want you to have all the information you need before you decide to rent with us, there’s just a few pointers below:

Late payment of rent

We hold the right to charge a fee for chasing any rents that are received more than three days late from the due date.

Early release from tenancy

If you want to leave the property before the end of the tenancy, you may be asked to continue to pay the rent and bills until a new tenant moves in.

Mortgage/landlord references

We’re more than happy to provide references, however sometimes we may charge a small fee to cover our costs.

Check out

Sometimes check out fees may be necessary – if you are unable to complete the agreed check out appointment. Also, rent is payable until the day you move out of the property.

Overpayment of rent 

At the end of the tenancy remember to cancel your standing order. If we do need to refund you rent because of this, we may charge an arrangement fee.
