Advice for Tenants

To assist you find your new home, here are a few tips to help you along the way…

Register your requirements
The first step is to register your details with one of our offices and our experienced staff will match your requirement to the range of properties we have available.

Viewings
Once you have viewed our selection of properties and found the one that best matches your criteria you will need to act quickly as rental properties tend to go fairly rapidly.

Please follow the link for further information on Fees and Deposits.

References
Satisfactory references will be required. You will be asked to complete a Tenancy Application Form (per applicant). 

Tenancy agreement
We will prepare a Tenancy Agreement which is signed by both landlord and tenant. This is a binding contract. Most contracts are for a period of one year.

Deposit
Most landlords require a security deposit equivalent to one and a half months’ rent in advance (two months for pet owners). This should be paid by bank transfer into our client’s account. Neither cash nor bank draft can be accepted. The security deposit will be reimbursed to you at the end of the tenancy, subject to the details of your agreement.

Inventory
A detailed Inventory and Schedule of Condition of the property will be prepared by an independent inventory company and agreed to by both the landlord and the tenant. In most instances, the landlord pays for the cost of the inventory check-in and the tenant pays for the inventory check-out.

Utilities
Generally, the tenant takes responsibility for the utilities, i.e. gas, electricity, water and council tax. We will arrange the transfer of utilities into your name. It will be up to you to arrange the telephone and television connections.

Home sweet home
Congratulations. Now, you can start to enjoy your new home.
