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 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.
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 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.
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.
We charge £150.00 inclusive of vat per adult to cover tenancy sign-up, referencing and credit checks. Fees are subject to UK VAT at the current rate
It is the landlord’s responsibility to insure the building; however it is the tenant’s responsibility to insure the properties contents

"Living Property have fully managed my three rental properties in Bungay for several years now. I have always found Kim and Paula to be efficient, professional, proactive and friendly. Dealing with them has become like dealing with friends. The agency’s monthly management fee is very reasonable. I am often abroad, and I particularly value the fact that when tenants move in or out, the staff deal with all the utility companies, meter readings, Council Tax, etc. In the early days, when I managed the properties myself, this was nothing but hassle, worry and aggravation, but not any more. Paula makes regular inspections of the properties and reports back to me. She is not greeted by the tenants with suspicion or misgiving but is welcomed in, sometimes with tea and pastries! I have no hesitation in recommending Living Property both to landlords and tenants. Dr C. Goodden (landlord)"
