Tenants | The Lettings Process

The Lettings Process

Step 1 Register your interest

The first step is to register with us either by calling us or registering on our website where you can share your property requirements with one of our dedicated lettings consultants.

Step 2 The search begins

With a clear understanding of your requirements you will receive a selection of properties that match your criteria. In order to secure a property, we recommend an early viewing.

Step 3 Accompanied viewings

We are open at times to suit you, convenient for viewing after work and at weekends. A large number of our viewings are carried out during evenings and weekends. Our phone lines are open 9.00am to 8.00pm 7 days a week.

Step 4 Reservation deposit

In order for us to take your desired property off the market you will need to put down a £500 non refundable reservation deposit. This will prevent any other applicants viewing the property and will mean that the property will be yours providing you pass referencing.

Step 5 Referencing

Once you’ve identified a suitable property and supplied us with details of referees, references will be applied for and your information will be forwarded the referencing company for acceptance. We will also require Identification at this stage and other personal information maybe required in order for the referencing process to go as smoothly as possible. To note the administration fees are £180 inclusive VAT per adult tenant. These fees cover preparing the tenancy, managing the referencing process and conducting a pre-inspection prior to you moving in to the property. If you require a guarantor then there will be an additional cost of £90 inclusive VAT for each guarantor.

Step 6 Rental paperwork

Once the landlord confirms that they would like to proceed we will draw up the relevant paperwork, forming an agreement to be signed by both parties.

Step 7 Rent and deposit

An advance rental payment is required prior to the commencement of the tenancy. A rental deposit is also required from the tenant. This will be reimbursed to you at the end of the tenancy, subject to the details of your agreement and the findings of the inventory check-out report. As per recent legislation, where relevant, your deposit will be held by a third party as part of the DPS.( Deposit Protection Scheme).

Step 8 Completion

Congratulations, keys are now handed over and you can move in to your new home!dult
