We pride ourselves on only offering rental accommodation that we would happily reside in ourselves. All of our properties are cleaned to a professional standard and most have neutral décor throughout.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends by appointment, and you will be accompanied by a member of staff who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Once you have decided on a property we will commence our referencing procedure. The property will be placed 'on hold' and we will require a Holding Deposit equal value to one weeks rental payment, the Tenancy will usually commence 15 days later from the time the Holding Deposit is paid or later by mutal agreement and subject to satisfactory referencing. Assuming the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. The tenancy agreement will be prepared for a minimum period of six month fixed term, usually continuing on a period month by month basis thereafter.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer, and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We will use the services of an independent referencing agency (Rentshield Direct) to obtain and evaluate these references and a credit check will be undertaken.
Rents are quoted calendar monthly and payable monthly in advance by Standing Order. The tenant is also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order.
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 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.
Pets maybe considered in some of our properties, however at the end of your tenancy it is company policy that the property is protected against a flea infestation and the floor covering throughout are cleaned and neutralised to a professional standard.
In some cases Landlords may require extra bond monies.
