Making an Appointment to View

Once you have decided that you would like to view a property, please ensure that all prospective tenants who will be living at the property view at the same time. We cannot reserve a property until all tenants have viewed the property. If you need to cancel a viewing, or are running late, you must give us as much notice as possible, so that we can make another appointment for you as soon as possible.

Proceeding with a Property 

When you have chosen a suitable property and the Landlord has accepted the initial terms of the let, you and every other tenant over the age of 18 will be required to: -

  • Complete a Tenancy Application on line (if no e-mail, a paper copy can be supplied)
  • Provide Identification
  • Pay a Tenancy Application Fee (please refer to section Tenants Costs)

An email will then be sent to all tenants wishing to reside at the property who are over 18. This will be an application via our referencing company for completion on line (a paper copy can be supplied if there is no email address).

* We must be advised if any tenant will become 18 during the tenancy *

The information you provide as a new tenant, will be used for references and a credit search.

Upon satisfactory enquiries being received we can then agree a moving in date, which unless otherwise stated, will always be within 14 days.

Identification

Each tenant over 18 will be required to provide photographic identification and evidence of your existing address: -

  • Passport or Driving License
  • Utility Bill or Bank Statement. (Mobile telephone bills are not acceptable)
