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'.
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.
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.
