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.

  • To view our selection of available properties to let please use the Property Search boxes on the left
  • To register your requirements please click on the Register/Contact Us tab.

Please note that for your safety and peace of mind -

  • All of our managed properties are Gas Safe certificated, and inspected for electrical safety, and furniture fire safety
  • All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.

Viewings

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.

Fees to tenants

Upon reserving a property, applicants will be required to pay our agency fee as follows:


Initial tenancy: £75.


Tenancy Renewals: £50.


These charges cover our referencing and admin costs. We do not charge VAT. These charges are non-refundable.

In addition to the above charges, you will required to pay a Holding Deposit (aka Reservation Deposit). This is usually a minimum of one weeks rent. Providing the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the first monthly rental and the tenancy deposit, which are due before you move in (see below).

In the event the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded to you in full.
However the holding deposit will be non-refundable if you decide not to proceed for any reason, 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)and a previous or current landlord. A bank reference, or bank statements may also be required, where necessary.

We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes 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, unless otherwise stated. All rents are payable by bank standing order, either directly to your landlord's account or our company bank account, in the case of fully managed properties.

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum one months rental will normally be required. The normal deposit is 6 weeks rent. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is used. 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.
