Renting in retirement, especially on an Assured Tenancy, may be particularly beneficial in later life. It is unlikely that you will wish to take on another financial burden, such as a mortgage, and if you are a homeowner, selling your property outright on the open market means you release all your capital and are free to invest or spend the money in any way you choose.
An Assured Tenancy is a contract between you and the Landlord which means you are entitled to stay in the property for as long as you wish. This is known as ‘Security of Tenure’. There is a minimum 12 month term, after that it is your choice when to leave after giving the required notice - you can stay for life if you wish.
The Assured Tenancy is available on all properties at Wispers Park, Haslemere, with an option of a 1-year Assured Shorthold Tenancy, at a lower rent, should this better suit your needs. Currently, properties at Lincombe Manor are available on a 1-year Assured Shorthold Tenancy; however there may be an option to switch to an Assured Tenancy at a later date with the Landlords’ consent. Please contact us for further information.
You will need to pay £200 to reserve a property.
In the unlikely event that you change your mind within seven days of reserving the property, the reservation fee will be refunded less a handling charge of £50. After seven days, the reservation fee is non-refundable. Just before your tenancy starts we will require a tenancy deposit usually equal to a months' rent. We also ask for your rent monthly in advance.
The landlord is responsible for fees relating to the inventory and check-in.
The rent includes services and property maintenance, including:
As a tenant you are responsible for paying the Council Tax for the property (the local council may contact you as the occupier). You are also responsible for all personal bills e.g. telephone, electricity/gas and television licence.
