The first step is to register your details on our system by telling us what you are looking for. You can do this by clicking here, or by calling our office and discussing your requirements with a member of our Lettings team. The majority of all our property listings are taken by tenants already registered on our system. Be sure you don’t miss out – register today!
Once you’ve found some properties you want to look at you’ll need to arrange to view the properties. This is your opportunity to visit the property and see if it is right for you. All of our viewings are accompanied by a member of our team who will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the property or how to rent through us.
Having selected a property, you will need to complete an application form to apply to rent the property. You will need to supply us with details of your current & previous addresses, current employer / benefit income, your previous Landlord and a character referee. At this time we will also need two forms of identification, one photographic & one postal.
On application you will need to pay an administration fee of £35 to cover our costs of obtaining a credit report and references to support your application. A holding deposit of £100 is also required at this point. This allows us to remove the property from the market while we’re processing your application. This £100 then goes towards your security deposit.
We will take up references on behalf of the Landlord. Usually this will include your employer, current / previous Landlord and a character reference. A credit check will also be undertaken. Referencing normally takes between 3 to 5 working days to complete. If you are claiming any form of benefit you will also need to supply details of a Guarantor as well.
You’ll need to pay the first month’s rent in advance, plus a deposit is required all properties prior to occupation. Deposits are normally equal to one months’ rent, but this may vary depending on the property. Please check with a member of staff who can confirm the deposit required for the property you are interested in. The deposit is held to cover your obligations under the Tenancy Agreement.
When all the referencing is completed, we will present your references to the Landlord. Once the Landlord has accepted your application we will call you to let you know that it’s all systems go!.
We will send you a draft copy of your Tenancy Agreement to read over as it contains important information you need to know before signing the your actual agreement.
We will organise a time for you call into our office to sign the Tenancy Agreement and associated legal documents. Once everything is signed and monies paid, it’s time to move in!
