Costs involved
When renting a properly you should consider all of the following costs in order to work out how much you can realistically afford to spend on a properly. If you are unsure about your budget please feel free to speak to a member of the Hughes Management's Team. We’ll be happy to help.

One-off costs

Deposit
You must pay a deposit for any properly you are renting. Hughes Management will hold this for the duration of your tenancy. If necessary, your deposit will be used to pay for any cleaning, missing inventory items and damage to the property or contents at the end of your tenancy. Please refer to your lease for further details.
Removal costs
The cost of furniture removal will vary between different companies, so it’s advisable to get a few quotes before you move.
Telephone connection
There will be telephone points throughout the property but it is your responsibility to get connected. You will need to call BT or Telewest and organise for them to visit the property.

On-going costs

Rent
The rental prices advertised do not include Council Tax or utilities. The rent will be due each calendar month on the same date e.g. if you moved into the properly on the 2nd of a month, your rent will be due on the 2nd of each month thereafter.

The rent will vary depending on size, location, and standard of properly. So you must be realistic about your budget and your requirements.
Council Tax
As a tenant you are responsible for the Council Tax on a properly. Each properly is banded, and Council Tax can vary between £80 and £300 per month, and there is a 25% discount for single occupancy. So it is essential that you check this cost before applying for a properly.
Gas and electricity
As a tenant you are responsible for the gas and electricity bills. You will be billed on a quarterly basis and the amount will depend upon the usage of the gas and electricity within the property.

The total monthly amount for gas and electricity in a large one-bedroom properly will work out at around £45 per month but this will fluctuate according to time of year.
Telephone bill
Please allow for a quarterly line rental charge (approx. £25) plus the cost of the calls you make.
Insurance
As you will have many of your own possessions in the property, it is advisable to take out your own contents insurance.

Checking out
Shortly before you are due to move out at the end of your lease, you will be sent a "Notice to quit". If you decide not to extend the lease, then you will be asked to follow our checking out procedure.

Checking out procedure
You will be sent a letter asking you to complete a forwarding address form so we know where to send your deposit and, if necessary, how to contact you after you have left the property. If you would like to be present during the checking out process, we'll be happy to make an appointment.

Our properly co-ordinator will complete an inventory check of the property. It is requested that the properly is returned in a condition that will allow the next tenant to move into. However, if this is not feasible, we will instigate any cleaning and repairs on your behalf at your expense. Hughes Management should be informed immediately about any problems that will require major works e.g. machinery breakages, leaks, large stains or decorating work.

We suggest that you ask our recommended cleaners to clean the properly for you before the end of your tenancy. However, if you decide to clean the properly yourselves, the following guidelines will help:

Windows
For safely reasons, we recommend that you use a window cleaner to clean both inside and out.

We will supply a list of recommended tradesmen.
Flooring/walls
All floorings should be cleaned - including the edges, and under furniture. Any burns are generally charged at a fixed rate unless the damage means the flooring has to be replaced.

Carpet cleaning should be completed by one of our recommended cleaners.

Marks left behind by blue tac/white tac marks generally means sections of walls have to be repainted. So, please do not use this to mount posters. This is prohibited under the terms and conditions of your lease.
Furnishings, crockery, ovens, hobs, fridge etc.
Please clean them properly. Our cleaners are available but their time will be charged to the tenant unless the cleaning is due to forces out side of their control. Please replace all light bulbs that are not working.

If items are missing or broken. please tell us. It is very important that problems are reported to our maintenance department as they occur, otherwise this could cause difficulties at the check out time.

In addition to our recently refurbished properties, we have many traditional properties that contain irreplaceable items. We expect our tenants to treat their rented properly as if it is their own home, and look after the landlord’s possessions well.

Inventory items must be returned to their original positions as detailed on the inventory. If not, charges can be made to the tenant to rectify this.
