Holding Deposit (per tenancy)

One week’s rent. This is to reserve a property. Please Note: This will be withheld if any relevant person (including any guarantor(s)) withdraw from the tenancy, fail a Right-to-Rent check, provide materially significant false or misleading information, or fail to sign their tenancy agreement (and / or Deed of Guarantee) within 15 calendar days (or other Deadline for Agreement as mutually agreed in writing).

The Application Process

Once you have had your offer accepted, subject to contract, by the landlord what happens next? We will write to you confirming details which will include the rent per calendar month, deposit amount, proposed start date and length of tenancy. 

At this time the Holding Deposit (one weeks rent) will be due in cleared funds via Bank Transfer. Once paid a link from VOUCH will be sent to each applicant, via EMAIL & or TEXT, to begin the online referencing process.

Referencing

We use a third party company, VOUCH, to carry out credit and reference checks on our behalf. We will register you with Tenant Screening (online) and they will send you a tenancy application via e-mail for you to complete and return. Tenant Screening require all applicants to provide the following:

  • Employment details and proof of income
  • Current Landlord details
  • Bank details
  • Minimum of 3 years address history (unless moving from overseas)

We recommend as soon as you receive the application to complete and return ASAP to avoid any delays to the move-in date. This is particularly important for tenants wanting to move-in within a short timescale. Sometime referees cannot always turn around your reference quickly and may need further declaration or can be transferred to other departments within your company. In this instance you may have to chase up those particular referees.

The sign up process and key hand over

Once all references have cleared we will write to you, in advance of the move-in day, with a copy of the tenancy agreement and monies required ready for the start of your tenancy. We will also include the date and time to attend our office to sign and complete the hand over.

We require cleared funds on or before the agreed move in date; this money can be paid in advance via bank transfer. IMPORTANT - The money needs to clear into our account before the time you come to the office and sign the tenancy agreement. We recommend all funds have been received and cleared a day or so prior to your sign up date.

Once you have paid and signed the tenancy agreement we will provide you with a welcome pack and other useful information which will help for a smooth move. Most Landlords will provide a written Inventory and Schedule of condition report about the property. You will be given 7 working days in which to make any comments and to return to us (if we manage the property) or directly to your Landlord if we don’t retain the management. This will also have all meter readings listed so you can advise the relevant utility providers.
