Finding a property
Please browse Rightmove, Zoopla or OnTheMarket where our properties are advertised, and if you are interested in arranging a viewing please contact us straight away. It is advisable to start looking about 4 weeks before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are typically granted for a term of 12 months.
For further information on renting a property please click on the “How to rent guide” button located at the bottom of this page.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you are able to reserve it by paying a holding deposit. You will be required to complete and return an application form as well as provide two forms of ID. Each tenant and guarantor will then need to provide photographic ID (passport or driving license) and proof of your current address (bank statement or utility bill). Holding deposit will be refunded in full if your application is rejected. Holding deposit fee paid will be offset against the 1st months’ rent.
Credit reference/s will be undertaken. We use an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references. We may additionally require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor.
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 client bank account.
A security deposit or bond 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.
