Tenants Information

We let and manage furnished and unfurnished flats and houses throughout the North West.
Please contact us for current availability or to register your requirements.

Please note that for your safety and peace of mind:

All of our managed properties are certified to current gas safety regulations.

The deposits will be protected by The Deposit Protection Service (The DPS) in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of The DPS. The Terms and Conditions and ADR Rules governing the protection of the deposit including the repayment process can be found at www.depositprotection.com

All applicants will be requested to complete an application form and the offer of a tenancy will be subject to satisfactory references being obtained, both on the tenant and Guarantor (if applicable). An administration fee of £80.00 is required per applicant, payable on application.

Tenants on Housing Benefits may be considered with a suitable Guarantor.

One month’s rent in advance and a deposit equivalent to one month’s rent will be required.

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. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months; however, there may be exceptions to this.

Viewings

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

References

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer, and a previous or current landlord. We will also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. We use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rents

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

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental must be paid. The deposit will be protected by The Deposit Protection Service (The DPS) in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of The DPS. The Terms and Conditions and ADR Rules governing the protection of the deposit including the repayment process can be found at www.depositprotection.com. 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.

Fees

We charge £80.00 including VAT, per applicant to cover administration and referencing costs. This is non refundable, even if the tenancy does not proceed. Tenancy renewals are usually free of charge.

Restrictions

Some Landlords will not allow smoking, pets, young children, or sharers to take occupation and you will be advised of any such restrictions when viewing a property.

Maintenance

If the Agent is engaged by the Landlord to do so, any necessary repairs are carried out as quickly as possible after receiving notification. If such repairs are found to be the fault of Tenant’s neglect or misuse, the costs will be the responsibility of the tenant. If the agent is not engaged to carry out such repairs the Tenant must contact the Landlord direct.
