Once you have found your perfect property your consultant will negotiate the best price for you and arrange a lease agreement to suit both parties. When making a property offer you will be asked to present a security deposit cheque, this is equivalent to 5% of the annual rent amount (this is in the case of an unfurnished property) you are offering, this will not be cashed, and is held by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gulf Properties until your offer is accepted.
