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.

References
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
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 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 rent.
