Guide for Tenants

Finding a property

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move in order to give yourself time to achieve and secure your ideal Property. Our Tenancy Agreements are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, all of which will be explained to you as part of the application process.

 

Other Areas

If you are looking for a Property to rent in another area, please contact us direct.

 

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

 

Reserving the property and Fees

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a holding fee which is non returnable. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. However the fee will be forfeited if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

 

References

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken, should an applicant fail a credit check all is not necessarily lost, so do not dismay as we can advise, assist and hopefully remedy the problem.

 

We may also use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate any references.

 

Rents

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax,
Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your
landlord’s bank account.

 

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of one month’s rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is utilised, we currently utilise ’The Deposit Protection Service’. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
