Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle.
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.
Please note that for your safety and peace of mind -
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Upon reserving a property, applicants will be required to pay our agency fee as follows:
Holding Fee: £125.00 + Vat. This charge covers our referencing and admin costs. This charge is non-refundable.
In the event that the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded to you in full.
However the holding deposit will be non-refundable if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer, a previous or current landlord, and a personal reference. We will also require a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly or four weekly, and payable one month or four weeks 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 of one month's or four weeks rent will normally be required. This deposit will be treated 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.
