At Thornley Groves we pay our landlords Monday to Friday once we have cleared funds in our account (unless agreed with you otherwise) the reason you have had a partial payment is because the tenant(s) have made a partial payment. Please note where there are more than 1 tenant on your tenancy they may choose to split the payment between themselves, and this can cause a partial payment to be sent to you. Once we receive the additional funds these will be forwarded to you.
As managing agents we charge management fees on the total rent due, not on rent received, therefore we will deduct the full management fee from the partial payment of rent. Please note when the additional rent is received you won’t be charged an additional fee.
