Tenant Information

As a tenant there are certain responsibilities to fulfill including payment of the initial deposit and ensuring the correct rent is paid on time each month.

Bills such as Council Tax, Water rates, Gas, Electricity, Telephone Charges and Television fees are also the responsibility of the tenant. Once the tenancy is complete, the tenant is responsible for ensuring that the property is returned in the same condition as at the start of the tenancy allowing for fair wear and tear.

What we do

  • Advise the Landlord of your rights and responsibilities as a tenant.
  • Accompany you to view unoccupied property, where appropriate
  • Write to the utility providers and authorities so that accounts can be set up in your name.
  • Arrange the appropriate reference checks and payment history checks (where appropriate)

Notes to Applicants: 

  • Generally, applicants should have weekly gross income equal to one months rent
  • Generally, no pets are allowed, unless on very rare occasions by prior arrangement with the landlord
  • Successful applicants are required to pay a deposit equal to one and a half months rent in addition to the rent which is payable one month in advance
  • The charges for status enquiries are payable upon application - these charges are not refundable in the event of an application being unsuccessful (£65 each)
  • All applicants are considered on a merit and not a receipt basis
  • A charge of £180 per property will be made upon the signing of the tenancy to cover legal costs associated with drawing up the tenancy agreements
