I have a prospective tenant who is interested in my property but is waiting for the sale of his flat to complete before he signs for mine. He's happy to put down a retainer, but how much is fair & for how long? Rent is £485 pcm. £100 for 2 weeks?

but is waiting for the sale of his flat to complete before he signs for mine.

Has he exchanged contracts? If yes, when is his completion date?

he can't have exchanged else he'd be happy to sign for mine, can't remember the house buying process as it;';s been a while, but it's the final signature that commits the buyer to buying
