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.
- To view our selection of available properties to let please use the Property Search box
- To register your requirements please click to Register Here and we will send you any suitable properties as soon as they become available.
Please note that for your safety and peace of mind -
- All of our managed properties are Gas Safe certificated, and were possible/appropriate inspected for electrical safety, and furniture fire safety
- All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, evening and weekend viewings may also be possible on most properties, for working hours viewings 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:
Single Application Fee: £75 - £100 (Dependent on property)
Extra Applicants: £0 - £30 each for over 18's (Dependent on property)
Guarantor Application Fee: £40.
These charges cover our referencing and admin costs. We do not charge VAT. These charges are non-refundable.
If you are accepted for the property you will required to pay deposit and rent before you move in please see sections below.
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 may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.
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 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.
