Tenants: Renting a Property
  • paragraph

    We have a range of properties to let throughout Nottingham. Please view our property search facility for an idea of what we have available. Please be aware that our stock changes daily and you should contact us to register your requirements and for current availability.

    What is the application procedure?

    Once your fees and application are received, the property will be removed from the market for seven working days whilst all references are obtained. We will undertake references from your employer and current landlord (if you are currently in rented accommodation) and instruct financial and electoral roll checks.

    You may be asked to provide a guarantor if you either are unable to prove your income, earn insufficient income to cover adequately cover the rental obligation, have a poor credit history or are between work positions. The purpose of the guarantor is to honour your rental obligations if you are not in a position to.

    Processing the application, including carrying out the referencing procedure, normally takes about 3 - 5 working days.

    If you are successful in obtaining the property

    If your application is successful, we will contact you and ask for payment of the Tenancy Fee. We will confirm a date the tenancy is to begin and make an appointment to meet you at our Mapperley office for you to sign contracts and pick up keys. We also require one month's rent in advance and the full deposit in cleared funds.

    On the date your tenancy begins the tenancy agreement must be signed by all tenants before you move into the property. We will also arrange for you to set up a standing order for future rental payments and we will pass on further documents relating to the tenancy. If you have a guarantor, we will also need a signed 'deed of guarantee'.

    Your deposit

    If the property you are renting is Managed or Part-Managed by David James your deposit will be held by us through our tenancy deposit scheme which is administered by The Dispute Service (TDS). Once your tenancy has commenced we will write to you issuing you with a certificate confirming your deposit registration.

    Moving day

    On your moving day, you may be provided with an inventory which we will ask you to sign at our office. From the date of signature you will have 72 hours in which to cross reference this inventory and let us know of any discrepancies or changes that you believe need to be made. Should we not hear from you within the 72-hour period, the signed copy of the inventory held at our office will become binding.

    What will renting a property cost me?

    The administrative fees that we charge tenants are very competitive. We don't want extortionate fees to mean you can't apply for your ideal home, so we believe in making our service accessible to everyone.

    Application Fee (per person) - £75.00 (inc. VAT)

    This costs covers you being comprehensively referenced and secures the property for ten days (above it says seven working days?) whilst this process is followed.

    Guarantor Fee - £50.00 (inc. VAT)

    This fee covers the referencing costs to carry out checks on the guarantor as well as the administrative costs of preparing a Deed of Guarantee.

    Permitted Occupier Fee - £30.00 (inc. VAT)

    This covers the administrative costs when preparing a tenancy agreement with a permitted occupier.

    Tenancy Fee - £150.00 (inc. VAT)

    This cost covers the drawing up of your tenancy agreement, preparing all the necessary documents to facilitating the move-in process.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      Would highly recommend!
      The Property Management team has given me a consistently good service- we have worked together for several years on numerous properties and they have never failed to get me the results I need. I have dealt with many agents in Nottingham over the years and can confidently say that I feel like I get the excellent service that I've always expected, but never got elsewhere. Would highly recommend!

      Ms A Cox (30th November 2016)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      David James went above and beyond..
      I'm not the easiest Landlord to deal with, but the team at David James went above and beyond to make sure that all of my needs were fulfilled. It's been a turbulent few months, but the professional service I've received have made it much easier to get through. I would recommend David James to anyone!

      Mr Hallam (26th September 2016)

      Really took the stress out of renting!
      Luke was brilliant - covered everything and was very helpful. Found ideal tenants and really took the stress out of renting!

      Mrs Taylor
      (2nd June 2015)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      So informative and professional..
      Just wanted to say a big thank you for your support with our property. Both myself and Spencer have to say that you're a credit to the team there in Nottingham. Throughout the whole process with the letting of the property you have been so informative and professional. It's made the process very easy and without much concern.

      Mr Detheridge-Hilliard
      (5th May 2015)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      ..efficiency and professionalism..
      I just wanted to let you know how delighted I was with the service I have received from David James despite the initial misunderstandings. I would also like to convey my thanks to Luke for the excellent service he has provided.

      I doubt there is another lettings agent in the city who could match this service for efficiency and professionalism.

      Mr Duddy
      (30th March 2015)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      We will be using you again!
      We just thought you should know that you did a brilliant job of finding us the perfect tenant for our house two years ago! They have now decided to move on so we will be using you again!

      Mr and Mrs V, Calverton
      (13th September 2012)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Professional, courteous, efficient and effective..
      It is rare these days to receive consistent professional, courteous, efficient and effective service and as such I would like to commend Luke Wilken of your Lettings Department. From the first email communication through to finally meeting face to face yesterday (I reside overseas) I have been impressed by Luke's excellent professional manner - this has also been commented by my brother and the tenants in my property. He is an asset to David James, and was the primary reason I chose David James to manage my property over my previous agent (who had been managing another of my properties - shortly to also be managed by David James).

      Ms Z, Beeston (14th August 2012)
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I will use you again in the future!
      Thank you very much for the hard work that went into renting my property, the service was excellent and I will use you again in the future!

      Ms Groening (10th December 2015)

      Mrs Robinson (26th August 2016)
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Fantastic from start to finish!
      Thanks very much for the stellar customer service you have given us, in particular Luke, who has been fantastic from start to finish, we really commend him!

      Mr Worcester
      (15th July 2015)
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Truly did go above and beyond customer service..
      Luke, just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all your efforts and hard work you put in to help us in any which way you could. You truly did go above and beyond customer service. I felt we wouldn't have received it from anyone else. So thank you. I will keep you updated on how it all goes.

      Trudie and Daryl (3rd March 2014)
    • Tenant Testimonial

      I have been extremely happy in my property!
      I would like to say that over the past, nearly 3 years, I have been extremely happy in my property and I am sad to be leaving. I would like to thank all of you at David James for your helpful, courteous and professional service, I would definitely recommend you!

      Joanne Nowell (30th January 2014)
    • Tenant Testimonial

      A job well done needs to be recognised!
      I am writing regards the service Luke Wilken has provided us. I would like to say he has been exemplary in his job and gave amazing customer satisfaction. He let us ask as many questions as we needed during our first viewing of the property, kept us well informed throughout the application procedure and inspired confidence in me regards to the company as a whole.

      On our second viewing (booked so we could take measurements for furniture) he brought along an electronic measuring device, which greatly sped up the process. He has always been friendly and courteous to myself and my partner.

      I believe that a job well done needs to be recognised and even though he stated multiple time he was "just doing his job" I think he should be commended for the excellent service provided. I will in future be recommending him and the entire David James company to my friends and look forward to our dealings together.

      Mr Spry (23rd July 2013)
    • Tenant Testimonial

      It has been a pleasure dealing with you!
      I would like to say a big thank you to you for letting me the property over the last year and three months and it has been a pleasure dealing with you!
