Moving In 2 Months Time

Recommended Posts


We're moving into a a flat in 2 months' time. We've paid a 1 week holding fee on the flat, which the agent says is to take it off the market. They have in fact removed it from their website.

The letting agent is running credit and reference checks and is drawing up the tenancy agreement.

Obviously, I want to wait until the last moment before paying the deposit and first months' rent as I will still have to recoup my current deposit.

Is it possible to sign the tenancy agreement now and pay later or are they likely to insist that I stump up all the money now?

Obviously I'll have to put the question to the agent, but would be interested if anyone here has an opinion.

I'm not an expert but i think you can sign the agreement now and pay the deposit and rent in cash on the day you move in. We did that once.

thanks for that, -received an answer to that effect today from letting agent. All going very smoothly.
