We appreciate how stressful it can be moving into a new property. Therefore, we try to make the process as smooth and as stress free as possible. We aim to keep you informed at each stage with clear and up to date information.
Once you have selected a property you would like to rent you will need to pay an ‘Application Fee’. This does not guarantee you the property but allows is to hold it for 48 hours whilst your references are being processed. Please note that this fee is non refundable if you decide not to proceed or your references are unacceptable.
We obtain references for all persons aged over the age of 18 who will be residing at the property, and these include employment, existing and former landlord’s, a bank reference, an independent credit check, and where applicable, a Guarantor's reference’s.
Once the references are complete and satisfactory, and the Landlord has agreed you application, an ‘Assured Short hold’ tenancy agreement will be prepared. Prior to the commencement of your tenancy you will need to sign the legal paperwork, pay the remaining balance due, to include your first month's rent, security deposit and legal fees.
Details of all costs involved are detailed below.
Application Fee - £220 for a sole application. £240 for joint applicants. £60 per additional applicant or guarantor if applicable.
Referencing – identity, immigration and visa confirmation, obtaining references from current or previous employers / landlords and any other relevant information to assess affordability
Pet Deposit = Due at the start of the Tenancy, in addition to the property deposit, amount normally equivalent to 1½ month’s rent.
