There is a lovely main bedroom on the first floor level with pretty views over Palace Gardens Terrace and a study behind which could double up as a bedroom.

On the lower ground floor there are two further bedrooms (both en-suite) as well as a living room with kitchen which has been used as a secondary living room or playroom for the family.

TENANT FEES AND ADDITIONAL COSTS

In accordance with the Tenant Fees Act 2019, the rules for how fees will be charged for Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST’s) are different to how fees will be charged for Non-Housing Act (NHA) tenancies.

Housing Act Tenancies: Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST) Non-Housing Act Tenancies (NHA): Also known as 'Common Law Tenancies'
An AST is the most common type of type of tenancy if you rent from a private landlord or letting agent. An NHA tenancy is typically created if the rent is over £100,000 per year, or if it is a company tenancy.
You usually have an AST if:
  • The rent is less than £100,000 per year
  • You (the tenant) are an individual and are using the property as your main home
  • Your landlord doesn’t live in the property
  • The property is privately owned
A company tenancy is when a company takes on a residential tenancy agreement as the tenant. The company employee will live in the property as a ‘permitted occupant’.
An NHA tenancy would also be created if the property isn’t the tenant’s main home.

Housing Act Tenancies / Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST)

In accordance with the Tenant Fees Act 2019, permitted payments by a tenant to a landlord or agent are listed below.
