    Considering renting? Some points to consider:

    HOW LONG DO YOU WANT THE TENANCY FOR?

    Most tenancy agreements are for between 6 and 12 months, however a maximum fixed term can be for 3 years if agreeable with the landlord.

    HOW MUCH RENT CAN I AFFORD?

    To pass referencing you must earn (before tax) 2.5 times the annual rent, for example if your rent was £750pcm you would need to earn £22,500 before tax (£750 x 12, x 2.5 = 22,500). Decide which area you would like to live in and how you are going to look for a rented home. The larger the area where you are prepared to look, the better the chance we have of finding the right home for you.

    HAVE YOUR DOCUMENTS READY

    Landlords and Boydens will want to confirm your identity, immigration status, credit history and employment status, to ensure that they meet current legislation requirements.

    DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RENT PROPERTY IN THE UK?

    Landlords/agents are obliged to check that all people aged over 18 living in their property as their only or main home have the right to rent. We will need to make copies of your documents and return your original documents to you.

    WILL YOU NEED A GUARANTOR?

    Some landlords might ask someone to guarantee your rent.

    If you have any questions regarding this please refer to your local lettings team on 01376 808065

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      the agent of choice
      I became a landlord through inheriting a house which needed to be renovated and then rented out. I was therefore new to renting and, after hearing horror stories of renting gone wrong I was worried about how to avoid the numerous pitfalls. It was also important to me that I would be a responsible landlord, the house would provide a safe, warm home for a family and the rent figure wouldn't be exploitative but would be fair for both me and the tenants. I contacted several letting agencies and also asked around to find which agency had the best reputation. The opinion of nearly everyone was that Boydens were the agent of choice, and they were right.

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      well worth recommending
      I found the staff at Kelvedon to be very friendly, helpful and prepared to go the extra mile to make sure that I was happy as a tenant - they even fixed my shower before I got home from work ! - well worth recommending.

    Buying with Boydens, Kelvedon
    • paragraph

      We'll help, not hinder 

      Buying a new house is a major life event, and potentially a stressful one. At Boydens we aim to remove, not add to, that stress by providing timely, helpful information. No matter how experienced you may be to the house-buying scene, there are some important things you'll want to consider when you buy a new house.

      Contact your Kelvedon branch on 01376 808066 to start your property journey with Boydens.

      Here are some of the biggest issues you'll want to address.

      1. Location

      Where you choose your home is generally more important than the home itself, so be mindful of where that home is located. You can change all kinds of things about your house, but you can't change its location.

      2. Price

      You really don't want to buy a home you can't afford. Even if the bank will finance a particular amount, that doesn't mean you can easily make your monthly payments. What if your circumstances change, or you lose your job? It's better to stay under your maximum budget. Your house might not be as big or as fancy as you could have purchased, but you'll have more money in the bank, less stress, and more peace of mind.

      3. Upsizing or Downsizing

      Think about the size of the place you have now, and whether that works for you. If you live in a tiny apartment with your partner and three children, upsizing is definitely in order. If you're by yourself, though, or there's just two of you now that the kids are off to college, you may want to downsize.

      4. Purpose

      What you're buying the house for matters. If you plan on living there forever you're probably looking for different things than you would want if you knew you would only be living there for a few years. A lot of people rent when they aren't going to be permanently in one location, but buying for a few years can also work well if you get a good deal on your home and aren't strapped for cash when trying to pay for it.

      Carefully consider why you're moving to this location, what you like about it, and your future plans. While things can always change, it's good to have an idea of how long you plan to be in a house you're buying.
