Finding a property

The first step is to contact us to register, providing brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We will then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. We will keep your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available in the near future. 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.

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends. You will 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 the 'one off' administration fee. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, this fee will be refunded, however the fee 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.

References

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college) and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rents

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly and are payable monthly in advance. The rent includes council tax, water rates, broadband, television licence, gas and electricity charges. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

Deposit

A security deposit of the equivalent to one month's rent 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.

Fees

When you decide to rent a property with us, we will charge a one-off administration fee of £200.00 inclusive of VAT. Other fees may apply. For more information, click here.

Periodic Inspections

We wish to ensure that the property is being kept in good order. For this reason it will be necessary to arrange periodic inspections under the terms of the house share agreement. It is important that these visits are organised in advance in order that tenants are put to the minimum inconvenience.
