All tenancies require a damage deposit and this is standard practice throughout England. This is taken, together with the first months rent, just before or on the first day of the tenancy. Damage deposits are registered with the governments Deposit Protection Scheme (they are not held by Belvoir). Typical levels of damage deposit: a £500 pcm rental property - £600 damage deposit. A £750 pcm rental property - £850 damage deposit, and so forth.
Pet deposit - If a Landlord is prepared to accept a pet in their property, a pet deposit on £200 will be taken in addition to the usual damage deposit. This is used to cover the added risk of damage to the property and is protected with your main deposit in the DPS.
