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 are able to assist with their deposit transfer and reduced costs. 

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 a Holding Deposit, which is the equivalent to one weeks rent. The Holding Deposit (Tenant Fees Act 2019) will either be returned to the tenant or put towards their Tenancy Deposit or first months rent, as required.

There are no Reference Fees for tenants. After receiving your Holding Deposit we will conduct your referencing and draw up 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 the Holding Deposit will be refunded to you. If you withdraw from the tenancy or do not pass referencing then we retain the Holding Deposit.

All tenants over the age of 18 are subject to referencing through HomeLet. 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 as we are required to conduct Right To Rent checks (Immigration Act 2014).

The first month’s rent (less the Holding Deposit) and the Tenancy Deposit are due in cleared funds prior to moving in. The Tenancy Deposit equates to 5 weeks rent.

Unless stated to the contrary, all properties are let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy for a minimum 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.
