A GUIDE TO TENANTS
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    So you have found a property that you would like to live in. The first step is to make an offer to the Landlord. Should your offer be accepted then it will be strictly subject to contract, satisfactory references and vacant possession. In order to proceed further agencies require a holding deposit of one week's rent, this will be returned should the Landlord decide not to proceed with your offer.


  • paragraph

    REFERENCES AND IDENTIFICATION

    References need to be obtained and approved by the Landlord prior to the Tenancy commencing. As the Tenancy cannot go ahead without these, it is imperative referees are made aware of the need to respond as soon as possible. Typically, the type of references required are as follows;

    • Work Reference - (which must be provided on company headed paper). Confirmation will be needed to confirm, start date, salary and position within the company.
    • Accountants Reference - (if you are self employed). Confirming assets, profit and revenue.
    • Current/Previous Landlord - confirming rent, length of Tenancy and condition of property.
    • Character Reference - from someone who has known you for 2 years or more.

    COMPANY LETS

    Should the Tenancy be in your Company's name, agents will usually require the following;

    • Company Name & Address - (which must be provided on company headed paper)
    • Proof of an Authorised Signatory (for signing the Tenancy Agreement) - This could be a letter which must be provided on company headed paper)
    • Solicitors Reference
    • Accountants Reference - (in house accounts references are not acceptable)

    STUDENTS

    It is generally appreciated that students will be unable to provide some of the above, however, we will still need to be in receipt of satisfactory references. Therefore the following will be required;

    • Advance payment (6 months in advance)
    • Tutors Reference
    • Previous/Landlord Reference

    NOTE: It may also be necessary to provide a UK based Guarantor who is a UK Property Owner. They will be required to sign a Deed of Guarantor, which is a legally binding document stating that in the event you breach the Contract, the responsibility to, for example, pay the rent falls to the guarantor. If it not possible to provide an appropriate guarantor then the majority of the rent will need to be paid in advance. This is calculated on a case by case basis. Please note the Guarantor will also need to be referenced as per above.

    IDENTIFICATION

    In order to proceed with a tenancy through any reputable agency and to comply with money laundering legislation you will be required to provide proof of identity and residency, this should include at least one item from List A and two items from List B.

    LIST A:

    Full Current National Passport; Full Current National Driving License; Pension Book/Child Benefit Book; Armed Forces I.D. Card; Signed Employer I.D. Card; Pensions Travel Pass; Building Society Passbook.

    LIST B:

    Gas, Electricity or Telephone Bill (not a mobile bill); Mortgage Statement; Council Tax Demand; Bank/Building Society/Credit Card Statement; Reference from Accountant/Bank or Solicitor.

    RENT / DEPOSIT PAYMENTS

    Your first rent payment should include the deposit, usually equivalent to Five weeks rent per Tenancy (Six weeks for rent over £50,000 per annum). This must be received in Cleared Funds in order for the Tenancy to commence. Napier Watt is a member of the Government backed Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS) and will pay over the deposit in accordance with their terms (a copy of which will be provided to you along with the Tenancy Agreement). Please be aware, we only accept payment of the initial monies by the following methods;

    • Direct Transfer (BACS) 
    • Bank Draft

    TENANCY AGREEMENTS

    This is the legal document you sign. It must be returned complete to us prior to the tenancy commencing. The agreement must have been signed by all parties to the Tenancy or by a pre-confirmed authorised signatory, in the event a company is the tenant. Each page should be initialled and the signatures witnessed by an independent party. Employees of the agency are able to witness such signatures, but we would recommend having a neutral third party present if possible. Do note that in the event the Tenancy documentation is not returned promptly/within the agreed time frame, agencies do reserve the right to continue marketing the property.

    INSURANCE

    During your tenancy you will be responsible for ensuring your possessions are adequately insured. It is usual that any insurance the Landlord may have will not cover your possessions or accidental damage to the Landlord's contents during your Tenancy. You will therefore, as part of most good Tenancies, be encouraged to acquire insurance for the duration of your Tenancy. A good agent should be able to introduce you to some providers of specialist Tenant insurance products who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. Please feel free to contact Napier Watt for more details on this as with any of the above.

    REMOVALS

    All good agents will be able to recommend a number of reputable local and international removal companies, who can ensure a stress free moving experience.

    STAMP DUTY LAND TAX

    On commencement of the Tenancy you will be sent a copy of the original Tenancy Agreement signed by the Landlord. An obligation exists to have this document stamped by the Inland Revenue. This is ONLY applicable where the Tenancy figure exceeds £125,000 for the full term of the Tenancy including any extensions or periods of holding over. Stamp Duty Information can be found on the Inland Revenue website: www.hmrc.gov.uk or get more info by telephoning 0845 60 30 135.

    FINALLY...

    These guidance notes are intended purely to assist you and will not necessarily contain all of the conditions of your proposed Tenancy, nor do they contain your obligations, which will be detailed in your Tenancy Agreement and other related documentation.
