Information for tenants

How to apply

In brief, once you have chosen a property you need to complete a Tenancy Application Form, one for each applicant over 18. Once this has been received, we will present it to the landlord and will endeavour to let you know within 24 hours if your application has been accepted, subject to references. At this point, you will be asked to pay the required Tenancy Administration Fee (shown below) and the property will be taken off the market whilst references are processed. Please note that the property will not be removed from the market until the Tenancy Administration Fee has been paid. We may carry out a credit check and, in certain circumstances, a guarantor may be required. We will let you know if this is the case. 

Please note that, due to bank charges, payments by credit card, company debit card or debit cards issued by an overseas bank will attract a processing charge of 2.5%. 

On occasion we may receive more than one application on a property. Our commitment is that we will only ever process one application at a time on a property so if multiple applications are made a decision will be made as to which application we will progress. Any unsuccessful parties will be informed at the earliest opportunity and receive a full refund of any amounts paid. We will also assist, if required, in finding suitable alternative accommodation.
