Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle and to treat you with the importance that a valued customer deserves.
Finding a property.
The 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. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if all parties are in agreement.

Referencing Charges for tenants.
Upon reserving a property, applicants will be required to pay a referencing charge to secure the property and process their application as follows:
First applicant: £249.00 inclusive of vat. Subsequent applicants: £99.00 inclusive of vat. These charges cover our referencing charges and all documentation requirements for your application. We do not charge VAT. These charges are non-refundable.
Should a Guarantor referee be required to support your application a further Charge of £125.00 inclusive of vat. will be required for this added reference.
In addition to the above charges, you will be required to pay the first monthly rental amount in advance and the tenancy security deposit, which are due before you move in (see below). In the event that the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, your application fee will be refunded to you in full. However referencing charges will be non-refundable if you decide not to proceed for any reason once you have submitted your application, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.
Tenancy renewal charges where applicable are charged at a rate of £75.00 + VAT. (£90.00 inclusive of vat)for each renewal
You may be required to pay an administration charge when checking out of the property of £75.00 + VAT. (£90.00 inclusive of vat) if we as agents have to arrange tasks that are your responsibility under your agreement.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references. you will also be required to provide personal ID to enable you to be verified under the Right to Rent Legislation.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your landlord's bank account.
A security deposit of a minimum equal to 6 weeks rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated and protected in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be provided with the appropriate prescribed information and receive details regarding the scheme used. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
