YOU AGREE THAT OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU WILL BE NO GREATER THAN THE AMOUNT OF FEES (IF ANY) THAT YOU HAVE PAID TO MOVE ONWARDS. 

 

INDEMNITY 

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Move Onwards harmless from liability, loss, claim and expense (including reasonable legal fees) relating to your breach of these Terms and Conditions.  

 

PAYMENTS 

Payments will only be accepted by Debit card payable through our online system provided or authorised by Move Onwards. 

Move Onwards makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that all debit card transactions are secure. However, if unauthorised charges appear on your debit card statement for any card used on or through this website at any time during or after you conduct your transaction with us or disclose your card details to us on this website, Move Onwards will not be liable or responsible in any way in respect of any damage or loss of whatsoever nature suffered by you arising from or in any way connected with that use, transaction or disclosure, subject only to any statutory rights which you may have. 

Move Onwards referencing charges are £20 (inc VAT) per referencing application.  Tenant Referencing Fees are non-refundable.   

Please refer to our Products and Pricing pages on our website for further details of the fees chargeable for our services.   

 

DEPOSIT REGISTRATION 

If Move Onwards is instructed to collect the Tenancy Deposit monies and register the monies with one of the Government approved Tenancy Deposit Schemes; this instruction is irrevocable and cannot be amended. For the avoidance of doubt, should deposit monies have been received, Move Onwards will refund such monies back to the tenant(s), if the tenancy does not commence and provided Move Onwards have not already registered the deposit. If the deposit has been registered by Move Onwards, then it will be held by Move Onwards as stakeholder in Move Onwards ring-fenced client account subject to the terms of the tenancy agreement. 

Deposit monies will always be returned to the lead tenant. 

Interest from the Customers’ tenants deposits and on any balance held on the rent client account from time to time will be retained by Move Onwards.  

 

HOLDING DEPOSIT 

The Holding Deposit confirms that the tenant is applying to rent the property and move in on the agreed date.  

Move onwards requires a potential tenant to pay a Holding Deposit of £200.   

When this amount has been paid and the Landlord has approved it “subject to suitable references”, the landlord’s decision on whether they wish to accept a tenant is final. 

In the event of an unsuccessful application the prospective tenant will be provided with the report and the Holding Deposit will be returned.  If our referencing service has been used then the Holding Deposit (£200) less our referencing fee (£20) will be returned. 

A successful application will mean that the Holding Deposit will be used as part payment for any of the following outstanding fees:  referencing fee, tenancy deposit and rent payment.   

If a prospective tenant decides to cancel their application to rent the property once the holding deposit has been paid, in this instance the holding deposit is non- refundable. 

 

LANDLORD RESPONSIBILITIES 

The landlord is to contact all potential tenant leads within a reasonable amount of time, we ask that you make initial contact with any potential tenant within 24 hours of receiving the information from Move Onwards. 

You are a private landlord and not a letting agent or estate agent and that you have the legal right to rent out the advertised property. 

The landlord will be conducting viewings with interested parties and as such it is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure the property is safe for visitors and any relevant insurance is in place.  The landlord unreservedly agrees that Move Onwards cannot be held responsible for any accidents or damage caused prior to, during and post a viewing. 

Move Onwards do not erect a ‘To Let’ board at the property to inform potential applicants of its availability.  Where a ‘To Let’ board is erected by the landlord we accept no liability for any damages or injury suffered. 

If a landlord becomes unresponsive for 7 or more consecutive days, we reserve the right to pause the advert and investigate.  

Move Onwards can provide a tenant referencing service via one of our referencing partners at the request of the landlord.  Although this service is designed to help our users make a more informed decision we cannot provide any guarantees regarding the integrity of the information supplied or the users being referenced. 

 

LANDLORD & TENANT DISPUTES  

Any dispute that arises between a landlord and tenant who have used the Move Onwards service will be resolved solely by the landlord and tenant. Move Onwards is not responsible and shall have no liability for any disagreements or disputes that may arise throughout a tenancy term. 

In the case of deposits held under a tenancy deposit scheme, if Moved Onwards have collected the deposit on behalf of a landlord, Move Onwards is deemed to have acted as ‘stakeholder’ so that in the event of any dispute, Move Onwards will take only such reasonable and appropriate action as may be determined by the relevant dispute resolution service in relation to the dispute 

 

SCOTTISH PROPERTIES  

If you are the landlord of a property in Scotland, you should note that your tenant may not be charged fees for our services and so you will be liable to pay Move Onwards fees (for example, in relation to tenant referencing) which might otherwise be payable by them under these Terms and Conditions 

 

JURISDICTION AND APPLICABLE LAW 

The English courts will have non-exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from, or relating to, a visit to the Move Onwards website (although we retain the right to bring proceedings against you for breach of these conditions in your country of residence or any other relevant country).  These terms of use are governed by English law. 

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable then that part will be deemed to be severable from the balance of these Terms and Conditions and the severed part will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
