Where do I start?
The first step is to locate suitable properties and arrange some viewings. Use our 'Property Search' to view current availability.
You can be assured of a warm welcome at any of our offices and, as 'The Region's Leading Letting Agent', you will have plenty of choice when looking for a suitable property.
What happens once I've seen a property that I like?
It is important that you contact the relevant office of CGT Lettings as soon as possible in order to register your interest in a particular property.
A non-refundable administration fee, listed below, is required to reserve a property, subject to contract.
The administration fee must be paid in cleared funds, i.e. debit card, *credit card (*subject to surcharge) or bankers draft.
Please note that if the tenancy does not proceed due to any of the following circumstances the administration fee will not be refunded;
1) Where you or any proposed joint tenant change your mind and withdraw after references have been sought and/or documents prepared and/or preparations for the tenancy put in hand.
2) Where the tenancy does not commence within one calendar month of payment of the holding fee because of any action by you (as the property may be taken off the market there will be no possibility of finding another tenant during this period).
3) Where you or any proposed joint tenant fail the credit check or we do not receive favourable references from one of your previous landlords.
4) Where your references show that you have given misleading or incorrect information which cannot be construed as a mistake.
It is important to point out that payment of the non-refundable administration fee does not oblige the landlord to let the property, or any other property, to you and it does not commit the landlord to granting a tenancy or constitute an offer of a tenancy. No interest is payable on the administration fee. The administration fee is fully refundable if the landlord decides not to enter into the tenancy for personal reasons.
What references are required, and what will I need to provide?
References are always required and are obtained through LetRisks referencing agency. It should be appreciated that no tenancy will be granted until satisfactory references have been received and approved.
Each person relating to the tenancy will be required to fill in a reference form.
Additionally, and depending on your personal circumstances, the following will also be required;
All applicants, including guarantors (where applicable), will be required to provide a current Passport or Birth Certificate in combination with a National Insurance Number and photographic identification which can include a Driving Licence or National Identity Card. Non EU applicants will be required to provide a copy of their Biometric Residence Permit or current Visa, together with their Passport containing a UK immigration stamp. Further referencing requirements are as follows;
