--- Guide for Tenants ---

Finding a property
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. We regret that we cannot assist dss claimants. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months.

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and Saturdays, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposit', usually equivalent to two week's rent (or one month's rent for student properties). Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. However the deposit will be forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college) and a previous or current landlord, and we will undertake a credit check. We may also require a personal reference and/or a guarantor. If we do require a guarantor, please note they will also need to be referenced. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental must be paid (6 weeks in most cases) and will be held by The Deposit Protection Service throughout the tenancy term. This is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent. Full details about the Deposit Protection Service can be found at www.depositprotection.com.

Our tenant fees are probably the most competetive in the area and are charged on a per property basis rather than per person. The fees listed below cover all administration, referencing, check-in and check-out costs. Please note that if a guarantor is required, we charge an additional 20 for each guarantor. Students properties are also subject to an additional charge of 15 per applicant.

Our fees are subject to VAT at the current rate and only refundable if a landlord withdraws the property from the market.
