The benefits of renting and living in Horsham
Horsham and the surrounding areas, including Broadbridge Heath, Southwater, Mannings Heath and Slinfold are extremely popular locations for renting properties for families, couples, colleagues and individuals.
Whether you’re a family looking to move into your dream family home, or you’re a young couple who are moving in together for the first time, there are a range of benefits to living in this area and choosing to rent over buying, for example, if you haven’t got a deposit saved or want to live in the area before the commitment of purchasing a property.
In addition, as a result of Tenant Fee Act 2019, tenants no longer have to pay fees, either to agents, or landlords, unless they are one of the approved permitted payments, making it even easier to rent a property.
No deposit option
Brock Taylor, have also partnered with Reposit, to provide a no deposit option to renting a property, rather than the traditional 5 weeks holding deposit. This means for a one off payment of one weeks rent, plus VAT (with a £30 annual renewal), tenants can avoid having a whole 5 weeks rent tied up in an account until they move out. This additional 4 weeks can then go some way to paying for furniture in your new home and makes renting a home more affordable.
