If, however, the property is to be held for a proposed Tenant for period in excess of 2-4 days, the first months rent shall be required to secure the property. If the proposed tenant declines to sign the lease for the property, irrespective of the cause and or reason, the holding deposit will not be refunded. If the tenant is declined at a later stage by the Landlord or the Dermot McGettgan Agency the holding deposit shall be refunded in its entirety.
