Once we have received the above, we will start the application process. This is carried out by our referencing partner, through an online system.

Important Information


References

Receipt of satisfactory references are required before we approach the Landlord for their acceptance of your application.

To speed up the application process you should advise all of your references that they will be contacted.

Guarantors

A Guarantor must be provided if you do not pass the credit check, have unsatisfactory references or if the Landlord requests one.

All Guarantors will be contacted to ensure they are aware of their legal commitments to your tenancy. They will also be required to complete an application form to proceed through our referencing process, pay £60 (£50 + VAT) which is non-refundable, and be subject to a credit check.



Deposits and rental payments

Once your application has been accepted by the landlord, you will be offered the tenancy subject to payment of a deposit, equal to one month's rent. This must be paid with 48 hours of acceptance and will act as security to the Landlord of your intention to proceed with the tenancy.

Within five working days of the landlord accepting your application you will be expected to sign a Tenancy Agreement and, if applicable, your Guarantor will need to sign a Guarantor Agreement.

Any money paid between the Landlord accepting your application and you signing the Tenancy Agreement is non-refundable should you fail to proceed with the tenancy for whatever reason.
