Tenant's FAQ's 

 
You will find answers to our most common questions below or, you can contact us on rentals@stephenoakley.co.uk for a more in-depth information pack. 
 
How is rent paid? 
 
One month's rent is payable in advance on the start date of the tenancy and monthly thereafter. (Different arrangements can sometimes apply: e.g. payment of 6 months rent in advance). 
 
 
How long is a tenancy usually? 
 
A tenancy is initially for a minimum of a 6 months, fixed agreement under an Assured 
 
Shorthold Tenancy. After the initial fixed period the tenancy will become a statutory periodic tenancy unless, a new fixed agreement is agreed. 
How much deposit is required? 
 
A dilapidation deposit is payable by the tenant, usually equivalent to one and a half month's rent (However this can vary depending on specific landlord requirements).
