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 at least a month before you wish to move. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months (some landlords may stipulate a longer minimum term – i.e. 12 months).

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

Tenant Application Fees/Reserving the Property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a ‘Tenant Application Fees’ of £100 plus VAT per applicant. This payment is non refundable and used to undertake all the tenant references (outlined below). If you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application or fail the credit checks then the tenant application fees remain non refundable. The ‘Tenant Application Fee’ needs to be paid online (contact us for bank details) or by cheque. When we have received this payment the property is reserved to you until we have the results of the referencing. If you pass the referencing you will need to proceed to pay the deposit and rent in advance to continue with your reservation.

All tenants will be referenced via our chosen referencing agency. We will request references from your employer (or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference and sometimes a guarantor.

Rents are quoted per calendar month or per week and are payable monthly in advance.

Utilities & Council Tax
The tenant is responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs (unless stated otherwise). All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

A security deposit of a minimum of one month’s rental is required (unless stated otherwise). 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.

Insurance – for Tenants

1. Contents
