Tenants products & services

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 appropriable properties are viewed and reserved quickly. We are pleased to announce that we do cater for DSS tenants on selected properties.

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evening and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

Reserving the property once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a ‘holding deposit’ usually equivalent to one week’s rent. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, it will be refunded. However the deposit will be forfeit 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), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and something a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rent

Rents are normally quoted calender monthly, 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.

Fees

We charge £70 per applicant administration and referencing costs, a proportion of which is refunded if the tenancy does not proceed.
