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.

Fees to tenants

Upon reserving a property, applicants will be required to pay our agency fee as follows:
First applicant: £145. Subsequent applicants and/or any guarantor: £95, Renewal fee should a new tenancy agreement be required £50 (not required if the tenancy becomes a month to month periodic tenancy), An admin fee of £35 will be made should rent be paid late and therefore a letter sent to the tenant advising of a breach of the tenancy agreement. These charges cover our referencing and admin costs. The fees include 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 £100. 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) The deposit will be the equivalent of 1 months rent or one and a half months rent should there be pets living in the property. Please note that we do not charge for registering your deposit with the Deposit protection service. We do not charge move in or move out fees, We do not charge inventory fees. We do not charge tenancy agreement fees.
In the event that the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, the holding deposit 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), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report. 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. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your landlord's 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 provided with the appropriate prescribed information and receive details regarding the scheme 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.
