We are committed to helping you find your ideal property to make a home, whether that's a semi detached house, detached house, terraced house, flat or bungalow. To enable us to find the most suited property for you, we will ask you detailed questions. The more information you are able to give us the easier it will be for us to find your perfect home.
To pass referencing you will need to meet at least one of these requirements:
Have an income of 3x your rental budget
Have a guarantor (subject to conditions)
Be able to pay 6 or 12 months’ rent up front

What to look for when choosing an agent...
Use an agent with membership of a professional body such as the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), the National Approved Lettings Scheme (NALS) or the Property Ombudsman (TPO); certain standards of practice will be in place and you will have access to an independent complaints procedure.
Check that your deposit will be protected by a government-authorised Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme.
When viewing with us
We will accompany you on every viewing. We do recommend that everyone who will be moving into the property attends the viewing. Properties are not always available for a second viewing. If you are interested in the property we do recommend that you act quickly and are able to view straight away. Certain properties are in high demand and often rent within days.
Renting with us
When you make an offer it will be put forward to the landlord.
If your offer is accepted, you will need to provide:
A holding deposit (By bank transfer)
Photographic identification for each applicant (e.g. Driving Licence, Passport)
Proof of address for each applicant (bill or bank statement no older than 6 months)
Be ready for referencing and have the following to hand:
Your last 3 years address history
Your employment details
(If self-employed) Have accounts/accountant details ready
(If a company) Have two trade referees ready
Your landlord details
Your UK bank account details
Encourage your referees to respond swiftly
Whilst the referencing process is being carried out, a ‘Subject to Contract’ letter will be sent to the tenants and landlord which outlines the details of the contract including any requirements/ agreements made. If anything is missing, please inform us straight away.
If all references are deemed satisfactory, we will create a Tenancy Agreement. If there should be any problems with the references, we’ll let you know and advise you of your options.
The Deregulation Act 2015 introduced changes to some of the rules around section 21 notices. Regulations providing details of those proposals, and the prescribed form, have now been released. It should be noted that these rules only apply in England and to tenancies created on or after 1 October 2015. The attached ‘How to Rent’ checklist should be read by landlords and tenants before they consider letting or renting a property. Click here to view the latest guide.
Moving with us
Before you can move into your new home, you must have supplied us with the following:
Signed the tenancy agreement (signed by all tenants and witnessed)
A deed of guarantee signed by the guarantor (if applicable)
Paid the initial monies. The initial monies include: the first month’s rent, security deposit, tenancy set up fee and any check-in fee
Tenant’s liability insurance. We can introduce you to Homelet who can offer a tailored insurance policy that protects you against any accidental damage that you may cause to your landlord's fixtures and fittings up to £5,000. They can also provide cover to you to protect your own contents as well. Please speak to any member of staff and they can arrange for Homelet to contact you.
Shortly after you move in, we will send you a welcome pack which contains details you will find helpful during your tenancy.
During your tenancy
Look after the property and keep it in a good condition. Any damages or dilapidation costs may be deducted from your security deposit at the end of the tenancy. Pay your rent on time; your landlord may seek possession of the property if you fail to pay your rent.
For your peace of mind we have Client Money Protection through Properymark, this means you can claim back lost money in the event of a Letting Agent going into administration or misusing the funds.
