When you have found a suitable property to rent you will be required to complete an application form. One form will be required for every person applying and intending to live at the property over the age of 18 years. These forms are to be submitted with the accompanying reference and Tenancy agreement/administration fees.
All reference checks are carried out by a professional referencing company and will include a credit reference, an Employer’s reference, an Accountant’s reference and a previous Landlord’s reference.
You will be required to provide two forms of identification which will include a valid passport and a recent copy of official correspondence, i.e. utility bill at your last most recent stated address. Under the Immigration act 2014 we are unable to offer a tenancy unless the person applying is a British Citizen or a national from a country within the European Economic Area (EEA), a Swiss national or has a right to rent in the UK.
In the event a Guarantor is required, the same reference procedure will apply. If the application is successful the Guarantor will be required to sign a ‘Deed of Guarantee’.
We are unable to hold a property until a completed application form has been submitted and all associated fees have been paid. Once we start the referencing process all other work associated with your proposed move will commence, including preparing the property for occupation and the preparation of all legal documentation including your Tenancy agreement.
The Tenancy agreement /administration fee and reference fee is non refundable should your application be unsuccessful or is withdrawn by you.
