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 above

  • 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 invariably 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(Unless stated otherwise on individual property adverts):
Application & Set up Fee - To hold the property, to cover the costs of tenancy set up and associated costs and carry out relevant references: £150* For individual or Joint application, £200 For Company Let, £40 for Guarantor and additional applicants if required. *please see individual properties as they are often incentives available
We do not charge VAT. These charges are non-refundable.

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.
