You’ve found your new home, but what’s the next step?
Once you have viewed the property and are sure that you have found your new home we are here to make the process
as smooth as possible. There are five simple steps:
Complete a property holding form and pay a holding deposit. The deposit equates to one weeks rent. Once this has been received all further viewings shall be suspended and references applied for.
Provide us with a copy of your photographic I.D. and sign your tenancy agreement
Before the commencement of your tenancy a 5 week deposit will become payable along with the agreed amount of rent in advance. The holding deposit you have already paid shall be deducted from this amount.
On the day of moving into your property you will meet an inventory clerk who will provide you with keys for the property
Relax and enjoy your new home
We use an independent company to complete referencing called Van Mildert. They will check your credit history and obtain references from your current landlord (if you have one) and from your employer.
The general rule of thumb...
To pass affordability for a rental, your income (combined if more than one tenant) will need to equate to 30 x the monthly rental. In the majority of cases landlords are happy to accept either rent in advance or a guarantor to cover the shortfall if needed
