Top tips for Tenants:
Before renting, do your research on the specific areas you like and make a list of things that are important to you i:e rental prices, schools, and access to shops. This will help as we can start filtering out properties best suited to you.
If you have identified a specific property that you would like to see, simply get into contact with one of our agents and pass on your details - the lettings business is fast-moving and you don’t want to miss out on your ideal property.
Try to be available and as flexible as possible. Yes, we’ve said it before, but the lettings business is incredibly fast moving and when a good property comes to the market there can be a rush to view and offers are often made immediately.
If you like the property and confirm you want to take it, you can place a holding deposit of £100. We would then reserve and take it off the market until you finalize the documents/ referencing and make the rest of the payment.
Finalising your property:
Once your offer has been accepted you'll need to pay the remainder of the deposit. We are responsible for putting it into an approved tenancy deposit holding scheme. We will need to conduct security checks on behalf of the landlord, so make sure you have details of all your previous addresses to hand. Likewise, let your employer, and any other referees, know to expect a request for a reference.
Once you’ve moved in:
Look after the property as if it were your own. This reduces the likelihood of disputes over damage when the tenancy comes to an end. For any maintenance issues.
When thinking of moving out it is best to let us know one month before the end of the fixed term. If we manage the property for the landlord, we will arrange a check - out appointment, so we can both ensure the property is left in an appropriate condition in accordance with the deposit legislation.
