Indigo need to ensure any monies paid in respect of properties are cleared into their banking account prior to the commencement of the Tenancy Agreement. Payment made by personal cheque must be presented to Indigo at least 5 bank working days prior to the start of the Tenancy Agreement. Cleared funds in the form of Bankers Draft or cash may be paid in at any time prior to the commencement date of the Tenancy Agreement. If clarification is needed, please contact Indigo.

Tenancy deposit up to the value of six weeks rental is required. A reservation fee of £500.00 pounds will be required to secure a property while references and credit checks for affordability are taken up by a third party.

Please note that for affordability reasons we usually require the named tenants to earn 2.5 times the annual rent, as a household, per annum. The easiest way to work this out is if all people taking up tenancy add their monthly wages together, it should cost a maximum of 40% of the total monthly income, .

Tenancy Deposits for properties managed by Indigo are registered with The Dispute Service (please ask for full details). Normally Indigo holds tenancy deposits for managed properties. Landlords normally hold tenancy deposits for properties that they manage themselves. Details of this will be provided to you prior to the commencement of the tenancy.
