We don't work on a first come, first served basis and will take applications to discuss with our client - the landlord.
We need the following information in your application:
- Names of each tenant
- Employment status of each tenant
- Whether any tenants are smokers
- Whether any tenants owns a pet
- Lease start date
- Lease length
- Confirm you are happy taking the property as it is
Once our client has approved an applicant we then make a £200 payment towards deposit (per tenant if a student let) and start the reference checking process.
We use a third party company to carry out our reference checks and will send each tenant and guarantor a link to their form which will assess the following:
- Employer/income reference
- Risk profile (credit scoring)
- Linked address, identity & fraud information
- Voters roll information
- Public information such as bankruptcy
- Previous landlord reference
We will also need a copy of proof of ID and address for each tenant and guarantor. Other proofs or information may be required depending on tenant status.
All of our tenancies are set up as short assured tenancies which means we sign:
- AT5 documents
- Tenant Information Packs
- Prior Grounds
- Lease agreement
We'll send a draft copy of all documents by email for tenants to review and then arrange a date for all tenants to come to our office.
