Tenants

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 your situation is not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as and when 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.

 Please note that for your safety and peace of mind:

  • All of our managed properties are Gas Safety certificated, inspected for electrical safety and furniture fire safety; and
  • All Tenancy Deposits are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations. 

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings up to a reasonable time and Saturdays up until 3:30pm. You will 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, you will need to reserve it by paying a ‘holding deposit’ usually equivalent to one weeks’ 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 (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rents

Rents are generally 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 depending on whether we manage the property.

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of six weeks rental will normally be required. Some of our landlords are happy with the equivalent of a calendar month. 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 the deposit cannot be used by the tenant to cover rent.
