you decide you would like to rent a property we
will ask you to pay an application fee of £30.00
and complete our Tenancy Application Form. The
application fee covers the Credit Reference
Agency costs and is not returnable, even if an
application fails. The Tenancy
Application form asks for bank, employment,
personal and current landlord (if applicable)
details and other relevant personal information.
It authorises us to make enquiries to verify the
information provided, to request references and
to conduct a credit check with a credit reference
agency. (You can view or download a copy of
the Tenancy Application Form here.)
your application has been satisfactorily assessed
we will prepare a formal Assured Shorthold
Tenancy Agreement and contact you to arrange
signing. (A sample text of the tenancy agreement
can be viewed here.) Payment
of the security deposit will also be requested on
signing of the Tenancy Agreement (due in cleared
funds before start of tenancy).
property will have been professionally cleaned
for you at the start of your tenancy. Our
independent Inventory and Check-in Service will
prepare a property condition schedule (an
independent record of the condition of the
property when you move in) and agree its accuracy
with you on the day you take possession.
you wish to renew your tenancy on expiry there
will be no charge for a new tenancy agreement.
Our policy for renewing tenants is review the
rent annually (so there will be no change to rent
on your first renewal). On annual rent reviews we
may adjust the rent to reflect current market
rent for similar properties.
the end of your tenancy the Inventory Service
will check you out, and re-assess and agree the
the property condition with you. The property
will then be professionally cleaned ready for the
next tenant and your security deposit returned
less the cleaning and check out costs (usually
around £120.00) and possibly a further
reasonable deduction for any damage or missing
items identified by the Check Out service.
