Having selected a property that you wish to occupy as tenants, you will be required to transfer to us the equivalent of one week’s rent as a holding deposit in cleared funds.

This initial sum may be at risk should you provide misleading or untrue information revealed by the referencing process or you do not complete the tenancy within the agreed timeframe Upon receipt, our administration team will email you the required statutory documents, together with the tenancy application form and the referencing form for your completion and return as directed.

All prospective tenants applying to rent one of our properties will be referenced by an industry standard external referencing agency.

References sought will include, but not be limited to, a CREDIT SEARCH, an EMPLOYERS REFERENCE and a CURRENT or PREVIOUS LANDLORD’S REFERENCE (if relevant).

Before proceeding to completion of the tenancy, all prospective tenants will be required to provide PROOF of IDENTITY and PROOF of the RIGHT to RENT PROPERTY in the UNITED KINGDOM.  Further information on this matter will be provided to you at the time of your application to rent.

The referencing agency then makes a recommendation as to whether or not to proceed with the application.

Assuming a positive recommendation, the initial funds equal to the first month’s rent and the equivalent of five weeks rent as a deposit (or bond) less any holding deposit already paid must be paid to us in cleared funds 48 hours prior to completion of the tenancy and taking up occupation.

For the avoidance of doubt a successful application to rent does not compel the Landlord to complete the tenancy.  The Landlord may withdraw at any time prior to receipt of funds and the signing of the tenancy agreement.  In such rare circumstances all funds paid over to the landlord and/or agent with respect to the application will be repaid to the applicant.
