    • Looking for a property in Yeovil or the surrounding area? Have a question about an aspect of letting a property?  You'll find answers to our most common questions below.  You can also get in touch with us if you don't find the answer you need.
    • How is rent paid?   One month's rent is usually payable in advance on the start date of the tenancy and monthly thereafter by standing order. (Different arrangements can sometimes apply: e.g. payment of 6 months rent in advance).
    • How long is a tenancy usually?   A tenancy is initially for a minimum of a 6 months fixed agreement under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.  After the initial fixed period you will be invited to sign for a further fixed period of 6 or 12 months, depending on the wishes of your Landlord, or the tenancy may become a statuary periodic tenancy, again depending on both party's wishes.
    • How much deposit is required?   A deposit is payable by the tenant, usually equivalent to between one month's rent. (However this can vary depending on specific landlord requirements).  If the property allows pets, and you have them, you will have to pay an additional 50% deposit (6 weeks in total).
    • How often will I have management checks?  If your property is managed by Martin & Co we will visit you 6 weeks after your move-in date and then every 6 months.
