Your Search for a Property
We are constantly updating our website with new properties available to rent, so do check regularly. You may have an idea of what you are looking for, ie: price, location and number of bedrooms, but make sure you take into account that as a tenant, you are also responsible for paying Council Tax and utility bills (water rates, gas, electricity) and a phone line/broadband if supplied at the property.
Reserving a Property
When you have viewed a property that you would like to live in, we will put forward your offer to the landlord, giving your details. You will need to pay a holding deposit for the property (2 weeks rent). Once this has been paid the property will stop being advertised and referencing will start.
Every prospective tenant over the age of 18 will be referenced through FCC Paragon Referencing Agency. They will require you to complete a form on line (which you need to complete within 48 hours). They will then apply to your employer and current landlord (if applicable) for references. They will also carry out a credit search on you. They may also request a proof of residency for you in the form of a utility bill or bank statement. They will advise you as to the period they need confirmation for. Before you can take possession of the property, we will require 2 forms of ID from you, one being photo ID such as driving licence or passport, the second being proof of current address.
Failure to complete the forms within 48 hours will result in the property being re marketed.
The referencing process can take up to 5 working days but may vary.
TPS charge a registration fee of £50 plus VAT (£60 inc VAT) for each tenant over 18. This is payable with the holding deposit and is non refundable in any instance.
On the day of the tenancy commencement, you will be required to pay the first month’s rent in advance and the deposit which is one month’s rent plus £200.00. The initial holding deposit will be deducted from this figure. Payment methods are:
• Debit card
• Credit card - 2% surcharge
• Cash – 60p surcharge per £100 paid
• Direct Transfer/BACS to our bank
At this point you will sign your tenancy agreement, which is a legally binding document. All parties over 18 must be present to sign.
