To secure a property and take it off the market we take a £300 holding deposit which is put towards your full 6 week deposit that you pay when you move into a property.
At the same time, you will be required to pay for referencing costs which are £140 per person. This fee is passed on to our referencing company who also provide a rental guarantee to our Landlords on all our properties.
Putting Forwards Your Offer
Once you have paid your holding deposit and referencing fee, your offer will be put forward to our Landlord. In most cases, this offer should be acceptable and you will be able to proceed with your application. If the Landlord rejects your offer we will refund your monies in full.
All applicants are required to provide their references within 48 hours of putting down a holding deposit.
• Two forms of ID (e.g. passport and driving licence)
• 3 Payslips
• 3 Bank Statements
• If you are self-employed you will need a letter from your accountant plus your end of year certificate
• Students will need a guarantor- in this case we take the normal referencing documents from the guarantor
Once we have all of your documents we will process them the same day and let you know whether they are acceptable.
Contracts and Moving-In
Before you move in, you will need to come into the office and sign contracts. You will then need to pay the balance which is 6 weeks deposit (less the £300 holding deposit) and one months rent in advance.
A member of our staff will always come to the property with you to hand over your keys and take your meter readings. We will then pass these readings onto the relevant utility companies.
