Renting one of our properties
To proceed with renting one of our properties, a £180 agency fee is required which acts as a deposit and reserves the property whilst we proceed with the application process.
Once the £180 is received, we will send you an application form to read, complete and return within 3 days. Should you pull out for any reason, this deposit is non-refundable.
The application form requires you to inform us of your full personal details, your last 3 years’ worth of addresses, employment or income details, bank details for our credit searches and next of kin details in case of emergency.
In all cases we take up at least 2 references, our preferred sources being…
Previous & most recent landlord – who will need to provide information on the condition of the property you left, any issues with rent payments and any complaints received etc.
Employer – to give details of your position, salary, length of service and any expected changes
Character Reference – a professional person who has known you for over 3 years, such as a teacher, doctor, policeman etc to tell us how long they have known you, in what capacity and what type of person you are.
DSS Claimants – we will require proof of income or confirmation that you are entitled to the benefits that you claim you receive.
Guarantor – In most cases whereby you are claiming benefits, we will usually require you to have a guarantor. This somebody, preferably a family member, who is willing to accept liability as per the tenancy agreement in terms of rent payments and any repairs. This person must either own their own property or be earning a minimum of £15,000 pa.
Please note : Any person staying at the property for more than 3 nights a week will also require referencing and must be given permission to live at the property.
