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. The sort of information we need is the number of occupants and their relationship with each other, your employment status, let us know if you have pets and if any of your party are smokers. As some landlords decline renting to tenants in receipt of housing benefit / DSS claimants to avoid frustration and disappointment please advise us when you make contact. All properties rented are done so under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement.

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

Once you have decided on a property we will ask you to complete pay for a ‘referencing application’, after which you will be notified by us if your application for the property has been successful.

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

Rents

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

Fees

We charge £125.00 inclusive of vat per adult to cover tenancy sign-up, referencing and credit checks. Fees are subject to UK VAT at the current rate
