-Start your property search
You should already know your basic requirements for your new home:
Try and be as flexible with times and days as possible , as lettings is an incredibly fast moving business and when a property comes to the markets things move fast and the property you have seen could be gone within 24 hours. Always view a property with an open mind as something’s might be easy to change, for example a quick chat with us and the landlord could be willing to allow walls to be redecorated and painted. If there are bigger jobs to be done like a new carpet in the living room again a quick request to us and the landlord could be open to the improvements being carried out for the right tenants.
-Securing the property
So you have seem a property your interested in and wish to progress forward with an application, we will require a £50 per applicant holding deposit (Further details about our holding deposit can be found here), we will hold the property for up to 7 day, this could be extended up to 15 days should it be required. Within the 7 day window we will look to complete referencing and get a tenancy agreement drafted up and signed ready for your moving in date. We will aim for the tenancy to start within 4 weeks of the initial application. Once everything is set up to go ahead this deposit will be added to your tenant rent account and knocked off your first months rent. Should we decide not to proceed with the application this deposit will be refunded to you, however if you decide not to proceed with the application at any point; supply misleading or false information, this deposit will be forfeited to cover our administration costs in proceeding the application.
Each prospective tenant (over the age of 18 years) is referenced through Vouch an independent referencing agency. Each tenant intending to live in the property must therefore complete a reference application form. This application form asks for personal information and is used to conduct a Credit Assessment for each applicant. Before an application can be completed we also require identification for each applicant:
The reference/credit checks usually take 1-2 working days to be completed, but this timescale can vary.
-Signing Tenancy Agreements
Once the references have been satisfactorily completed and approved by the Landlord we will be able to offer you a tenancy. We will arrange for you to sign the Tenancy Agreement. This is usually on or before the commencement date of the tenancy. The Tenancy Agreement governs all rents, which is a legal and binding document. You will be committed to paying rent until the end of the agreed term and you could be liable to legal action if you break the terms of the agreement. If your circumstances should change for any reason during your tenancy, it is a good idea to tell your Landlord or In House Property Lettings as soon as possible as we will be able to help out.
Before your tenancy begins you will be required to pay the initial rental payment (less any Holding Deposits paid) and deposit. Any money paid must be paid in cleared funds (we cannot accept personal cheques). Usually the easiest and quickest method of payment is via Bank transfer.
Upon moving into the property we will of already carried out an inventory. The inventory will record details of the condition of the property and fixtures, fittings and furnishings this will protect you and the landlord as to the initial condition of the property when the tenancy began. Once the deposit and initial rental payment is made and all paperwork has been completed we meet you at the property and hand you over the keys to you NEW HOME.
