Tenants Info

Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle.

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 not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as 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.

Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposit or Admin fee of £80 per person, we will conduct reference and credit checks in line with our Traffic Light matching service, enabling us to match you to a suitable property. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, this is a non refundable fee if for any reason you fail to complete the necessary application procedures,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,there is a £60 fee for a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rents
Rents are normally 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.

Deposit
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.

Fees
We charge a modest fee per applicant to cover administration and referencing costs.
