To secure a property: All Proposed Applicants will need to bring into the office the following documents:
- Last six months payslips or proof of income
- Original Passport(s) and, if applicable, any Visa/Residency Permit(s), so that we can photocopy and certify these documents in order to satisfy residency requirements.
- Please advise the office if you have any adverse credit or poor credit history prior to commencement of your application
We confirm that we require payment of the first month’s rent to secure the property. You are required to start the tenancy within 4 weeks of securing the property, unless agreed otherwise in advance. It is the responsibility of the Proposed Applicants to ensure all references are completed and concluded to an ‘Acceptable’ Outcome within 7 days.
Please note that the holding deposit is non-refundable if you provide false or misleading information, you fail the ‘right to rent’ checks, full reference or you withdraw from the proposed tenancy.
Please let us know immediately if you are unable to complete your application form within 48 hours otherwise your application could be cancelled and the property will be re-advertised.
Reference checking procedure: Each person over the age of 18 will need to be named on the Tenancy agreement and complete an application form online which will be processed by our reference checking company Homelet/Rent4Sure/Vouch. To check on the progress of your application once it is underway please contact the office.
Rent: Once your reference(s) have been approved by the Landlord, payment of the first months’ rent is required to hold the property until the agreed move-in date, the holding deposit will be deducted from the payment.
Deposit: The deposit will need to be paid prior to you moving into the property. This deposit will be held until you vacate the property and will be protected in order to comply with legal regulations. The deposit will be equivalent to 4 weeks rent.
To move into the property: An Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement will be signed in our office on the move-in day for which all tenants will need to be present. The contract will run for a fixed term period i.e. 6 or 12 months and then continue on a periodic tenancy until such time as you give notice, in writing to terminate the agreement. We will ask you to set up a standing order so that the monthly rent payments are paid directly to us – unless alternative terms have been agreed.
Contents Insurance: We recommend you have contents insurance in place from the start of the tenancy. If you would like to receive a free quote for contents insurance from Homelet or Rent4Sure please select the option when completing your application form.
Utilities: You will be responsible for all utility and council tax bills whilst in the property. As part of our move-in process, we will arrange for all utility companies (gas, electric, council tax and water) to be notified of your move-in date together with any available meter readings. During this process you will be contacted regarding your utilities. Please make sure you review the information provided to ensure your energy supply is set up with the right tariff for you.
Please note that your utilities remain your responsibility, should you not receive any correspondence with 4 weeks of moving into the property we recommend that you contact them.
