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 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.
Legally rent may be increased annually. 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.
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.
