    How we can help

    The standard of rental accommodation and services provided by landlords and agents can vary enormously. JLL is a licensed member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), which means we are bound by a strict code of conduct and professional standards. So, in simple terms, we'll find the right property for you and make sure that renting is straightforward and enjoyable. We will manage your search in an efficient and friendly manner and will be transparent throughout the process.

    Making an Offer

    When making an offer for your preferred property, the landlord will consider the terms in full before making a decision. The offer terms you will need to provide are:

    • Confirmation of proposed rental amount

    • Proposed tenancy start date

    • Length of tenancy and if a break clause is required

    • Frequency of the rental payments

    • Prospective tenants and their employment / student status

    • Any special conditions of the offer


    Competition for rental homes can be fierce, so it's important to put yourself in the best possible position to act quickly. That means budgeting carefully, remembering utility bills, council tax and media charges are all in addition to the rent quoted.

    Once we've helped you find your perfect home, the main things to consider are:


    • Agency fees - £240 per property for tenancy and paperwork preparation and £60 referencing for each tenant/guarantor (including VAT).

    Deposit - this usually equates to six weeks' rent.

    Rent - your initial payment of rent will need to be transferred in advance, prior to the agreed moving-in date.

    Agreeing terms - once you've settled on a property and agreed the tenancy terms, you may need to pay a reservation fee.

    We'll then prepare your tenancy paperwork and check your references.


    We'll need the details of your employer, bank and previous landlord (if you have one) and if you are studying, confirmation of your student status.

    Personal ID:

    You'll need to provide your passport plus proof of current address and visa if required.

    Check in and receiving keys:

    Once the paperwork is in place, your initial monies have cleared and all of your obligations have been met, we recommend that you attend the inventory check in, following which you'll be given the keys so you can move into your new home.
