When you find a property, contact our office for further details about the monthly rental and to arrange a viewing.
When you have decided that you wish to rent the property, instruct one of our team and they will set in motion the paperwork.
First, you’ll complete an application form which allows the reference gathering process to begin. This will include a
· Credit check
· Reference from an employer or previous landlord
· Reference from your bank
If all is satisfactory, you will then sign a Tenancy Agreement which is your contact where you agree to the terms of the tenancy.
You will need to pay the first month’s rent in advance, along with the initial deposit. Rest assured though, the deposit is protected by law and is only used if you breach the terms of your tenancy, but you will always be notified of this first.
4. Moving In Day!
On moving in day, please check that your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are working.
Check the inventory against your new home and make sure the contents and condition are as described. If anything is different, please let us know within 7 days.
· You have seen the Gas Safety Certificate (landlords should provide a gas safety check every 12 months)
· You have the instructions for the boiler and any appliances, and you know the location of the stop cock, fuse box and utility meters.
· The meter readings for the gas, electricity and water should be included in the inventory. If they are missing, read these on the day you move in and transfer the account to your name and provide the readings to your utility providers.
It is your responsibility to ensure your belongings are insured from the day you move in, so please check that you have adequate cover. Your landlord should provide their own buildings insurance.
5. Moving Out
When you are leaving a rental, you need to ensure that it has been cleaned properly and all your belongings and waste is removed from the house and garden.
The property will then be checked, then your monies returned to your account less any agreed deductions if this applies.
