Amendments or changes to the tenancy terms
Should you wish to make any changes or amendments to the terms of the agreement once the tenancy has started then, dependent upon your landlord agreeing, we will draw up an addendum to the agreement. Addendum is £137.50 (paid by the party requesting the amendment, but may be shared between both parties, if agreed).

The equivalent of the letting fee already paid by your landlord to us from the date you wish to end the tenancy until the date you could contractually end the tenancy (calculated as a daily rate) and/or the landlord’s cost of the arrangement charge of £275
Change of sharer/Tenant Swap
Your landlord does not have to agree to you changing any of the named tenants during the tenancy term.
