Applying for a Property
Usually our first step before a viewing is to fill in an application form. This can be done
* Posted - Contact Us
Once we have processed your application and it comes back as 'accepted' we will organise to show you through the property. We can also keep your application on file for when a suitable property comes up.
We prefer that you set up an automatic payment to pay your rent, you will be given a code by us to include on your automatic payment that is unique to your property. Usually rent will be paid weekly, but this can be discussed before the start of the tenancy. We have a Zero arrears policy, so rent must be paid in advance.
Application - Accepted / Declined
We have an obligation to the owner to make sure that tenants we rent their house to will treat the property well, pay the rent on time every time and not annoy neighbours. Therefore all applications go through the process of credit and reference checks. If your application is approved we will show you properties meeting your criteria. We will discuss a start date and what it will cost to get the keys. You are required to pay a bond equal to four weeks rent plus the first weeks rent. We have never charged a letting fee. Tenancy agreement, terms & conditions, health & safety and bond forms are completed and signed, and the final thing done is a video of the property as a record of its condition.
Selling of your rental property
If the owner decides to sell the property that you are renting with vacant possession, you will be given at least 42 days to vacate. If the property is sold without vacant possession - you may be able to stay on as a tenant.
Tenants are responsible for the setting up of the utilities eg: Electricity, Gas & Telecommunications. We can offer advice.
Legally rent may be increased every 180 days. Tenants will receive a 60 day written notice that their rent is to increase. Your rent will reflect market rates and because we have a large number of houses, we are able to compare other properties with yours to ensure it is fair.
Giving Notice to Vacate
If you decide to leave the property, you will need to give us - in writing - 21 days notice. We will then give you a Leaving Checklist & a rental statement.The property must be left clean & tidy, including the gardens. A final check will be done with the tenant present on the vacate date. Keys are then handed back, a bond refund form is filled in.
Tenants are responsible for their own possessions. Some insurance companies offer tenant insurance which cover for damage you may cause.
