It does not commit the landlord to granting the tenancy or constitute an offer of tenancy but is required as proof of your commitment to proceed. Its purpose is as good faith only, to be held by ourselves, whilst your references are processed. Should any of the prospective tenants withdraw from the proposed let, no refund of the holding deposit will be made. However should the landlord not proceed with the proposed tenancy due to unsatisfactory references, a deduction of £180 including VAT will be made per tenant. If the landlord should withdraw from the proposed let through no fault of the tenant, the holding deposit will be returned in full.
