Finding a property
We appreciate that moving homes can be an extremely stressful process; we aim to make it as straight forward as possible. By contacting us and telling us your property requirements we can recommend suitable properties. We advise to start looking a month before you wish to move.
Our tenancies are granted for an initial term of 6 months.
We cater to everybody's needs so we can arrange viewings at times to suit your availability, including evenings and weekends. Viewings are normally accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposit'. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. However the deposit will be forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.
Administration Fees (inclusive of VAT)
- Administration fee £60 per tenant
- Referencing fee £90 per tenant
- Check In £60
- Drawing up tenancy agreement £180
Potential Additional fees (inclusive of VAT)
- Guarantor £120
- Tenancy Renewal £60
The administration fee is payable once you have decided that you want to apply for a property.
The fee includes drawing up the tenancy agreement. It also includes referencing, which will cover checking your credit status, employment status and current or past landlords. We will use this information to help assess the affordability of your tenancy application. In the event that you withhold information or provide inaccurate information you will not be entitled to a refund of the fees paid bar the holding deposit.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental is required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is utilised. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement.
Please note that under no circumstances can your deposit be used to pay the rent.

Up to your selected sum insured for damage to your household furniture, equipment, furnishings, clothing and personal possessions whilst in your home (excludes business equipment).
