We do not take deposits for rooms but the deposit for commercial, houses and flats is generally the monthly rent. The deposit is registered with MyDeposits.com and held during the tenancy against the satisfactory performance by the tenant of all the various obligations under the tenancy agreement, but mainly, those relating to the cleanliness and condition of the property. The relevant clauses in the tenancy agreement will set out  what the deposit can be allocated for and the end of tenancy procedures and timescales for its refund. At the end of the tenancy we will obtain the agreement of both sides before making any deductions for damage, cleaning etc.
