A Tenant's Guide To Rent From Us
Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your
requirements with the minimum of hassle.
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, as the nicer
properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are
granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if
all parties are in agreement.

Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it
by paying a Holding Deposit equivalent to 1 Month's Rent.
Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from
the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to
grant the tenancy, it will be refunded less our admin fee.
However the deposit will be forfeit if you decide not to proceed
for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate
information in your application.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your
employer, a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference
report. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes
a guarantor (guarantor fees apply). We may use the services of an independent
referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references. At
the time of reserving a property, you will be given an
application form for the reference company which must be
returned to us with in 48 hours together with the supporting
documentation. If we do not receive the above documentation in
time, then we will have to remarket the property and you will
lose your holding deposit.
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.
A security deposit of a minimum of 6 weeks 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. 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
