Finding a property

Your 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. We will also log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. We suggest that you start looking about a month before you wish to move. Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends.

How do I reserve my ideal property?

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposití usually equivalent to one week's rent. We will use email, online forms and electronic documents (pdf) to keep costs to a minimum and speed up the process.

Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, the holding deposit will be deducted from the 1st months rent.

Please note the deposit maybe be forfeited if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, the holding deposit will be refunded.

References

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 use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Fees

We charge from £65 per applicant to cover referencing costs and fees apply for agency administration for tenancy agreements.

Rents

Rents are normally quoted per calendar month and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually responsible for Council Tax, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs.

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of 1.5 times the monthly rental will normally be required. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement.

DPS
In line with current legislation our landlords will register all suitable deposits with the DPS within 14 days of the start of the contract. The Deposit Protection Service (DPS) is a tenancy deposit protection scheme accredited by the Government. It is provided free of charge, and funded entirely by the interest earned from deposits held in the scheme. See www.depositprotection.com for more information.
