Information for Tenants
We offer a friendly, professional and personal service to all
prospective tenants. Our aim is to find the perfect property to suit your requirements with the least 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.

All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.
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' (aka 'reservation deposit'). Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the
tenancy, it will be refunded less our admin fee. However the deposit will be forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your
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 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 or rent arrears.
We charge a modest fee per applicant to cover administration and referencing costs.
Administration cost is £65 per application
Reference cost is £65 per application
