    Tenant Information

    Procedure of tenancy

    1. The referencing fee must be paid in order to hold a property and your completed referencing forms must be submitted on-line or provided within 48 hours or the property will be re-advertised. The referencing fees are as follows: -

    · £150.00 inc.VAT For an individual or joint application

    · £100.00 inc VAT Per person thereafter

    · £100.00 inc VAT For a guarantor (*if required, conditions apply*)

    · £200.00 inc VAT Company Let

    The referencing procedure will check your following details: - personal details, current and previous addresses, current and previous employment, salary details, credit history and any current or previous Landlord references. You must be aged 18+ years to take out a tenancy.

    You will also be required to pay an overall administration/agency fee upfront. This is equivalent to 30.0% inc VAT of the monthly rental amount.

    2. You will need to submit on-line or provide us with 1 x completed application form (per adult), photo I.D e.g. driving license or passport and a proof of address e.g. a council tax bill or electric bill. The referencing can then begin and will take between 4 - 7 working days to complete providing all information given is correct.

    3. The total process from referencing to move in can take 7-10 days as a minimum (if the property is vacant).

    4. The day before you move in, you are required to pay your first months rent and deposit, in cleared funds (CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE) i.e. cash or bankers draft and provide us with proof of contents insurance.
