Tenants Info

Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle.

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.

Viewings

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.

Fees to tenants

Upon reserving a property, applicants will be required to pay our agency fee as follows:
Students: £110, Professionals: £210 and Couples: £350 . These charges cover our referencing and admin costs. We do not charge VAT. These charges are non-refundable.

We do not charge reservation fees or holding fees in addition to the above charges, or any other contract, check-in, or deposit registration fees.

In the event that the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, the agency fee will be refunded to you in full.
However the agency fee will be non-refundable if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

References

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer,a previous or current landlord, a credit reference report, proof of address and Photo ID. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.


For all of our student tenants we require proof of entry to the University, and a UK based guarantor, for international students who cannot acquire a UK based guarantor a minimum of three months rent must be paid in advance.


Rents

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 the landlord's bank account.

Deposit

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 provided with the appropriate prescribed information and receive details regarding the scheme used. 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.
