If you prefer you will be able to collect all forms required and guidance notes from your Viewer at the viewing.

Remember that every tenant over the age of 18 is required to complete an application form.

The application forms need to be returned with your application fee of £150.00.

The application fee above covers the processing of up to two applicants over the age of 18 and a Guarantor. Should there be more than two persons applying to reside in the property or a second or replacement Guarantor is required a supplementary charge of £50.00 per form is charged.

All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT.

Application procedure continued

If you want to ensure that the property is held for you – pay your application fee before or at the viewing or transfer to ABC by bank transfer or pay by card – this will mean that no body else can apply for the property ahead of you as ABC will only take one application at a time.

This payment will secure the property for you for a maximum of three working days, allowing you to complete your forms and return them to us. If we do not receive your initial application forms within this three day period ABC reserve the right to re advertise the property or proceed with another application if applicable.

When you are completing your application form please ensure that you supply as much supporting information as you can as this will speed up your application. Although we will require the items listed on your application form to allow us to process your application do not be concerned if you cannot include them all straight away, whilst it will help do not wait until you have all the items before handing in your application, they can follow.

What is a Guarantor?
You will require a Guarantor. The Guarantor DOES NOT have to be a home owner but needs to have a disposable income sufficient to cover your rent should they default. This can be by way of private income or working. Please call us today for further information.

A Guarantor is a person who agrees, at the outset of the tenancy to be jointly liable for any losses the landlord may incur that can be legally attributed to rent arrears, damage to the property or costs that may be incurred due to the behaviour of the tenants or the tenants visitors to the property – whether invited or not.

This liability includes any matters arising from your Vacation of the property too.

A Guarantor does not need to own their own home but requires assets, funds or an income sufficient to cover these costs should it so ever be required.

A Guarantor will be required to complete application forms which are similar to tenancy application forms and will need to ideally be aged between 25 & 65. We may consider out of these age ranges but acceptance is based purely on individual merit.

How can I pay my application fee?
You can make payment in cash at the office or to an ABC representative (a receipt will be provided). Alternatively payment can be made by bank transfer - ring the office on 0151 305 0940 for details).

Please note the application fee is not refundable.

What is required on move-in day?
Once your application has been accepted by the Landlord and ABC you will be forwarded by email or letter the terms of your tenancy. On receipt of this letter please read through carefully the terms and then follow instructions to call our office to set a move in date for your tenancy to commence (this is generally between 48 hours & 21 days depending on the terms agreed)

On the day you are to move into the property you will require your one months rent in advance, along with the deposit and a fee of £30.00 to secure your deposit.

These monies should either be transferred to ourselves prior to your arrival by way of BACS transfer or Faster Payments or may be brought to the office in cash or bankers draft.

Failure to do so will result in the tenancy not completing.

You may also be asked to bring with you items of outstanding ID – for example your passport or driving licence that have not been viewed by ourselves. Please ensure you bring these with you as our office does reserve the right to refuse completion without these documents.
