Tenants

We are very proud of the good relationships we form with the tenants under our management and firmly believe that our professionalism and experience, coupled with an honest and upfront approach, will give tenants a better experience than any of our competitors. Many of our tenants like being with us so much that if they do move they look to move to another property under our management, and in those instances we offer half price fees on their new tenancy.

If you have viewed a property and would like to be considered for the tenancy then we can place it under offer upon receipt of payment for an Administration and Holding Fee.

The Administration Fee covers the handling of your referencing and drawing up your Tenancy Agreement and is £180.00 for single applicants, £225.00 for two or more applicants, plus an additional £25.00 if a guarantor is required. The Holding Fee is £200.00 and is put against the rent due on signing your tenancy agreement. All fees shown are inclusive of VAT.

If the landlord withdraws the property from the market for any reason or decides not to proceed with your tenancy then both Fees will be refunded to you. If you withdraw from the tenancy or do not pass referencing then we retain our Administration Fee and the Holding Fee is passed to the landlord.

All tenants over the age of 18 are subject to referencing through Rent4Sure. This reference verifies your identity, conducts a credit check and obtains relevant references from previous landlords. References are obtained on a strictly confidential basis and tenants shall not be entitled to any disclosure. We require photographic identification for all applicants.

The first month’s rent (less the Holding Fee) and deposit are due in cleared funds prior to moving in.

Unless stated to the contrary, all properties are let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy for a period of 6 months.

We conduct a comprehensive check-in procedure for all new tenancies which includes a walk-through to assess the condition and state of the property, instructions on using appliances, taking meter readings, and a guide to all relevant features of the property.

Tenants are responsible for payment of the Utilities and the Council Tax unless otherwise stated.

All arrangements and representations made are subject to a formal written Tenancy Agreement being signed by both Landlord and Tenant.

If you have any further questions about becoming a tenant under our management please contact the office.
