TENANTS
  • paragraph

    Registering your interest in a property
    Once you have decided on a property, you will need to commence your application by registering your interest with a £100.00 application fee. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the administration fees upon move in. If the landlord or Number 1 letting declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. However the deposit will be forfeited if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application that ultimately is the cause for rejection, for example an applicant fails to disclose bad credit on application.
  • paragraph

    Rents and other financial commitment
    Rents are normally quoted per calendar month and payable monthly in advance. We will require your bond and first month's rent with cleared funds on move in day along with your admin fees minus your registration fee of £100.00.
  • paragraph

    Fee structure at a glance

    Number 1 Letting Ltd charges the following fees to tenants:

    • Up to Two Applicants: £300.00 including VAT
    • Each additional Applicant: £60.00 including VAT
    • Guarantor (if required): £120.00 including VAT
    • Company Let: £300.00 including VAT

      The staff know their stuff
      By: 'Stuart'

      Number 1 Letting provide an excellent professional service which you can rely on. I started with 1 property as a novice 5 years ago but because Number 1 Letting made that first experience such an easy one I soon moved up to 4 rentals.Number 1 Letting have always swiftly and importantly found the right tenants and got me a good return on my investments.Their attention to detail to find the right tenants and the effort they go to with their inventories has given me as a landlord peace of mind which you need in this business. The staff know their stuff and are always happy to advise and help.The fees are very reasonable but the peace of mind Number 1 gives you because of the standards they set is worth every penny.

      By: 'Martyn Barrow'

      Use them for their lettings service. I have 3 rental properties in the area and all are through Number one letting.I must say that they are pretty good all round. I like the fact that they are located locally and I don't have to speak to some centralised call centre at the other end of the country.The people I have dealt with have been pretty clued up and proactive. The odd problem that has occurred has been sorted out quickly and easily.

      Polite and extremely helpful

      By: 'Lynn H.'

      Received excellent service from this firm, particularly James who went that extra mile to be polite and extremely helpful. The service Number 1 provided was certainly tailor made to our requirement and within 1hour of our property going on line it had several potential tenants and the house occupied within the week. I have never used this service or firm before but would not hesitate to do so again or recommend Number 1 to other landlords.

    Testimonials from Tenants

    • Tenant Testimonial

      Nothing but praise for these guys
      By: 'James H'

      Nothing but praise for these guys. The house that we were meant to be buying fell through at the last minute, so we contacted them in real need of some help. We called them on a Friday afternoon, and they had us checked in to our new property by the following Tuesday. Must be some kind of record! Massively impressed and indebted to James and the team at Park Row.You stepped up when we needed you most, thanks for everything.

They really look after their tenants and I couldn't recommend them more.If you are thinking of renting or have them manage you're properties then have no hesitations.

      Extremely helpful and friendly
      By: 'Deana Barrett'

      Extremely helpful and friendly. Excellent communication by both email and telephone. Queries and issues dealt with efficiently and in a timely manner. Great team!
    • Tenant Testimonial

      always available and responsive

      By: 'Nick'

      As my first proper agents (aside from Student Accom Landlords back in the mists of time) they've been great. Addressed all my issues as quick as they could, always available and responsive. Great Comms from them; even if they'd not been able to get in touch with the landlord they'd proactively make me aware they're still trying. Doubtful my next move will be within the area they cover, but if it was I'd have no hesitation going with Number 1 again.

    • Tenant Testimonial

      By: 'Claire'

      A fabulous agency to deal with. Very professional, respectful and efficient in all dealings as well as providing the personal touch.
