Renting a Property


Can't find your ideal property?

 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. 


Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably 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 a 'holding deposit' equivalent to 1 weeks rent.  


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.


A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental will normally be required. This deposit will be registered with the Deposit Protection Service.

Holding Deposit: The tenant pays this to reserve the property of your choice upon application. This allows us, the agent to check the tenants suitability, their commitment to taking the property pending successful completion of referencing.

This payment will secure the property for you up to a maximum of 14 calendar days from your application date. Unless otherwise agreed by both parties, the commencement date of the tenancy will be within the 14 days, and no later that 1 month.
