The Application Process

If you decide to move forward with a property there are several checks which will need to be undertaken and passed in order for you to be accepted for a tenancy and get the keys to your new home. As part of our application process we require identification documents including: photographic ID, three month’s pay slips and three month’s bank statements. We will also complete the following checks: credit checks, Landlord or accommodation references, and Employer or Accountant references.


How to Pay Rent

Prior to the start of your tenancy, you will be required to pay your first month’s rent and deposit in cleared funds. You will also need to set up a standing order for your monthly rent from month two which will take the money from your account and process through to either the Landlord or ourselves. If you know that your rent is going to be late ensure you inform us before it falls due.
