Finding a property
1. Finding your next home:
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.
2. Pre-qualifying questionnaire:
Before you view a property, we will send to you a pre-qualifying questionnaire to complete and return back to us. This is to ensure that we match to you to the right property.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends. All viewings are accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have, whilst following Government guidelines surrounding Covid 19.
4. Applying for the property:
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to make an application for it. We will e-mail to you the link to our referencing company, Goodlord who will assist you in completing the on-line application. At this point, you will be required to pay a holding deposit equivalent to one weeks rent. Applications normally take between 5 to 10 working days to process. Once approved for the tenancy then we will require you to pay a deposit (bond) and to pay the first months rent (Minus the holding fee you have already paid.)
All applications are carried out on-line. Detailed and accurate information provided by yourself will allow Goodlord to contact your employer and landlord quickly and will speed up the application process. Sometimes a guarantor may be required, so it is alway shandy to bear this in mind when applying for a property.
6. Paying the rent:
Rents are paid monthly and in advance. You are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid on time each month along with being responsible for council tax, water rates, gas, electricity and broadband costs.
A security deposit unto a maximum of five weeks rent is paid prior to the tenancy commencing and will be held by DPS tenancy deposit protection scheme throughout the tenancy term. This 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.
