Finding a property
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself
and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database
for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your
details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become
available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you
wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly.
Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if all parties are in agreement.

All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings
and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member
of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it
by paying a 'holding deposit' or 'reservation deposit', usually equivalent to two weeks'
rent. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted
from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines
to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded to you in full. However the deposit will
be forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you
fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer
(or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report. We may also require
a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We use the services of an independent
referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references and will gladly help you to fill in any necessary application.
Tenants that have found a suitable property to rent and have paid, or are in the process of paying, a Reservation Deposit may wish to download and complete a Tenant Reference Application Form, returning it to us at their convenience.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly
in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax,
Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are
payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your
landlord's bank account.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is utilised. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
We only charge a very modest fee per applicant to cover administration of your part of the tenancy and your referencing
costs. That is it. Registration with us is Free of Charge and we don't have any Check In, or Check Out Fees, Inventory Fees, Hidden Charges and we don't charge VAT.
