Permitted payments for new Assured Shorthold Tenancies (ASTs)

When you have found a property you want to rent, The JNP Partnership will provide you with a Tenancy Agreement. This explains the application process as well as shows you any permitted payments which are due before you sign your Tenancy Agreement and any which may become payable during and after the tenancy. This will also include confirmation of the agreed rent and the deposit.
