You’ll need to get your deposit, rent and references together:
As soon as we have agreed the terms of the letting with you, we’ll need a security deposit which is normally one month’s rent. In some cases, we’ll ask for more. For example:
- If you have a pet that may cause extra wear and tear
- If the landlord has furniture at the property that is considerably valuable
The deposit can be refunded up to the point that the lease is signed. We may withhold part or all of the deposit if the property is held for you for an extended period or if the landlord carries our special works you requested. If you have any queries or concerns please contact us.
When you sign the lease you’ll need to have the first rent payment.
If we are managing the property, all rents are due on the 1st of each month. So, if you are moving in on 10th of the month, you’ll pay from 10th – end of the month.
If your move in date is 21st, you’ll pay the rent until the end of the month plus the following month’s rent. This is because the standing order won’t be processed in time for the payment due on 1st. If this doesn’t suit, contact us. We’ll work with you and sort it out.
This is a reference from your employer stating your job title, length of service and salary.
We need to confirm that the property you want to rent is within your means. If you would prefer not to disclose your salary, we require 3 month’s bank statements. Again this is to confirm that you can afford the property.
You need to request this from your own bank. It will state that you are a customer for X amount of years and that your account is in good standing. This reference confirms you have operated your bank accounts in a satisfactory manner and helps us determine your suitability for the property.
This confirms you rented previously and should confirm that you paid the rent on time each month and received your security deposit back.
Some landlords won’t email references or provide written references – we can call your previous landlord to confirm the details.
This can be a copy of your passport or driving license.
This can be scanned & emailed to us in advance of you collecting the keys.
We require your PPS Number to register the tenancy with the PRTB. For more information about the PRTB please click here.
