    Legislation changes all the time.

    Don't worry, we stay ahead of it.


    Practices and procedures are, quite correctly, rigorous: they are there to protect you and your property, as well as your tenant. However, failure to comply can incur large fines and, at worst, custodial sentences.


    We make it an absolute priority to stay abreast of these developments and to keep you well informed about them.


    We will also help you through the often complicated changes in regulations and law, with best practice advice and guidance. It can sometimes be unclear how regulations affect you, so we will be there, at hand, to explain.

    TENANTS

    Renting a home can sometime be complicated, sometimes even frustrating experience, particularly if you are unsure of the process. To help make the experience as straightforward as possible for you, we have outlined the key stages.
  • paragraph

    Register with us
    image cannot be displayed

    To find your ideal property, we need to know as much as possible about your requirements. This includes your rental budget, the date by which you need to move, the type and size of property you need, etc. You can let us know all about your requirements by registering online, by phone or by visiting us where a member of staff can assist you.

    With a clear understanding of your requirements we will then be able to access all properties that match your criteria.

    When you have registered, details of property can be sent to you by SMS, by Email or Post.

  • paragraph

    Viewings
    image cannot be displayed

    Viewings can be conducted 7 days. You can book a viewing by phone and online 24x7.

    We usually accompany and conduct all property viewings and the Landlord will not always be present. In some cases, a Landlord may give us specific times for viewings, although we do ask them to be as flexible as possible. We normally keep keys and can generally access properties to suit your availability. To save time in the long run, you should try to ensure that anyone likely to share in the decision views the property as well.

    After the viewing we need to know if you have any questions or if you are interested in renting the property. So please allow time to discuss your thoughts with us.

    Please be on time for viewings. We will arrange to meet you at the property, or if it is more convenient, at our office from where we can drive you. Sometimes we can collect you from your home or your place of work, depending on where these may be.

  • paragraph

    Making an Offer
    image cannot be displayed

    If the property is suitable for you don't delay your offer as it could get secured for let by someone else on the same day! When you make an offer you'll need to pay us an administration fee to cover our tenant vetting costs and a deposit to reserve the property. The deposit will be deducted from your first month's rent, unless you change your mind about taking the property, in which case you will lose your deposit.

    Sometimes there may be an opportunity to negotiate the rental. This can be difficult, but by working with us, you'll benefit from our expertise in this area

  • paragraph

    Referencing Procedure
    image cannot be displayed

    As soon as a suitable property has been found, you will need to complete reference application forms. We utilise the services of a credit-referencing agency to take up the following references, here is an example of just a few of the references sought:

    • Confirmation of employment, salary confirmation.
    • Personal & Photographic identification (passport or driving licence).
    • Previous Landlord references.
    • Students (Guarantor or proof or funding).
    • Self-Employed (Accountants references, trading details etc)
  • paragraph

    Holding Deposit
    image cannot be displayed

    A holding deposit of £200.00 (not subject to VAT) will be required at the same time as the administration fee(below).
    This is in order to reserve the property and remove it from our availability list. The holding deposit will be deducted from the first months rent due, should the tenant withdraw from the proposed letting, through no fault of the landlord or the agent, all or a proportion of the 'Holding Deposit' will be retained in order to cover any reasonable costs (which will be outlined in full). None of the Holding Deposit will be retained should the Tenant's withdrawal be due to a breach of the proposed letting agreement by the landlord or managing agent.

    The holding deposit shows good faith on the part of a prospective tenant enabling the landlord to take further action in the confident knowledge that the applicant is serious and fully committed to the property:

    For example:

    • Cancel any advertising for the letting
    • Tell other applicants that the tenancy has been taken subject to satisfactory references
    • Prepare a letting agreement
    • Take up references
    • Carry out credit checks (some landlords make a charge for this - administration fee)
  • paragraph

    Inventory
    image cannot be displayed

    A well-prepared inventory and check-in report protects landlords and tenants alike, providing an accurate description of the condition and contents of a property at the start of a tenancy.

    The condition of the property and its contents at the end of the tenancy is then compared back to this report in the form of a check-out report. The inventory clerk will also provide an opinion on whether any damage that has arisen during the tenancy is attributable to the tenants, to 'fair wear and tear' or to the landlord as required maintenance.

    It is in a landlord's interest to ensure that inventories are prepared for properties that they own. In the worst case scenario, should you end up in court, the judge will tend to look more favourably on an impartial, unbiased inventory prepared by a third party unconnected to either the landlord or the tenants. Inventories prepared by landlords could be viewed as biased and one-sided.

    Normally an inventory of the property condition, furniture and fittings and effects will be prepared by the landlord, or an independent inventory clerk instructed by the landlord prior to the tenancy commencing. The tenancy is checked and agreed between the tenant and the landlord at the tenancy commencement.

  • paragraph

    Tenancy Deposit
    image cannot be displayed

    We will deal with the tenant deposit collection and registration in accordance with a government-authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme. If we receive an AST deposit, we will serve the prescribed information to the tenant and comply with the initial requirements of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme on behalf of the landlord.

    We administer the return of the deposit and propose any reasonable deductions, negotiate and settle any damages and reimbursements as agreed between the landlord and tenant
  • paragraph

    Insurance
    image cannot be displayed
    The responsibility for your belongings are down to you, you must ensure you have adequate contents insurance, the landlord accepts no responsibility and cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to tenants possessions.
  • paragraph

    Rental Payment
    image cannot be displayed
    Rental payments are always made by direct debit from the tenants' bank account to the landlord's bank account, with the exception of managed properties whereby the rental payment is made to us.
  • paragraph

    Property Inspection
    image cannot be displayed
    If we are instructed as managing agents for your property, we will carry out quarterly inspections to assess the condition of the property and that everything is being kept in a satisfactory condition. We will always arrange this with you at a mutually convenient time.
  • paragraph

  • paragraph

    Tenants Responsibility
    image cannot be displayed

    • You are responsible for keeping your home in a reasonable condition and for attempting to solve minor problems.

    • You are expected to take reasonable precautions to prevent damage to the property by fire, frost, the bursting of water pipes or the blocking of drains and sinks.

    • You must provide access each year for the annual gas safety inspection.

    • We rely on you to report any faults promptly and as fully and accurately as you can. Be sure to provide access to our contractors at the appointed time to ensure that the repair can be undertaken within our agreed timescales.

    • Please check the contractor's identification and confirm with them the work that needs to be done. Keep the area clear of furniture, pets and children.

    • Finally, remember that someone else will be moving into your home if you ever decide to leave. Please make sure that the property is clean, tidy, reasonably decorated and that all your unwanted belongings have been cleared, including any in the roof space.
