Once you have decided that you would like to proceed with one of our properties and your application has been accepted, each applicant will be sent a link to their email address by our referencing company The Lettings Hub. You will also need to submit two forms of identification; passport or driving license and proof of address; utility bill, bank statement etc.
Each tenant will also need to pay an application fee, please see below. (Inclusive of VAT)
These fees are non-refundable. Referencing fees include Right to rent checks. Each applicant must be over the age of 18.
The referencing fee includes the cost of referencing – which will cover checking your credit status, previous employer, current or past landlords, and taking into account any other information to help assess the affordability of your tenancy application. The fee also includes providing a Tenancy Agreement and protecting your security deposit with a scheme such as The Deposit Protection Service. It covers the cost of one person.
Referencing can take between 3-10 days to complete depending on your circumstances and whether you require a guarantor or not. Delays may also occur if we are waiting for referees to respond.
Right to rent checks
All applicants will have to go through right to rent checks regardless of nationality.
Deposits are equivalent to one month’s rent plus £100.00. All deposits are held and registered with The Deposit Protection Service.
To take up a tenancy, you will need to come into one of our offices to sign your tenancy agreement. You will be required to pay your first month’s rent in advance along with your deposit. This money must be in CLEARED FUNDS, on the day of moving.
We will try and accommodate all moving in dates; however the safety of our tenants is of paramount importance. To ensure this, all of our properties have stringent health and safety checks conducted on them and certificates to confirm this. Therefore, an intended move in date may be delayed.
