  • Deposit return*

There can be, on rare occasions, deposit disputes which can end up requiring arbitration. If this happens and you require us to handle the matter on your behalf, this would be billed at £20 per hour + VAT, payable until the dispute is resolved.

*If remedial works are required and monies need to be deducted from the security deposit we will liaise with tenant and get the works completed, or deduct an appropriate sum from the deposit.

Please note that if you would prefer not to use the move out service and you wish to undertake the role yourself, then please be advised that John Prest Property Management would accept no responsibility for any issues which arise from the tenant moving out of the property.
