Cancellation - Where full management or letting or rent collection service is cancelled during the tenancy, a full months’ rent will be payable as a fee plus VAT.

Cancellation
If you cancel within the 14 day cancellation period then any fees paid will be reimbursed in full and you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.  However, if you have asked Belvoir to begin the performance of services during the cancellation period, you remain liable for an amount which is in proportion to what has been performed until your cancellation notice was received.

If you cancel prior to a tenancy starting, fees due for work already undertaken will remain payable.  If a tenant has already been found and the work for the check-in has been completed, this will be equivalent to a Let-Only fee.
