Residential Lettings & Property Management

Tenants

Tenants and landlords are equally important to us. You require a new home and they want to let one to you. The job that we do is match you to the right property and make sure that when you enter into a legally binding tenancy contract you know exactly what you are committing yourself to.

You can view all of our available properties on this website, together with the property portals Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market. 

It is important to remember that our stock of available properties changes every day and if you don’t see what you want on our property list, please do get in contact so we can discuss your requirements.

Whether you telephone, come to our offices or email us, we’ll need to ask you some questions:

•     How many bedrooms do you need?
•     How many will be living in the house?
•     Do you have any specific requirments, a garage or study for example?
•     Do you require a furnished or unfurnished property?
•     How much rent can you afford to pay each month?
•     When do you need to move, and If you are currently renting, have you given notice?
•     If you are selling a property, have you exchanged contracts?

We’ll need to have your address, telephone number and email address so we can get hold of you quickly if a suitable property becomes available.

Please note that you can register on line using the Tenant Registration link

Tenancy Information

In line with the Tenant Fees Act 2019, tenants are no longer required to pay an admin/referencing fee to secure a property. There are permitted payments associated with any tenancy as follows;

Permitted Payments

Rent – The rent amount will be agreed and confirmed at the application process, prior to the payment of any holding deposit.

Refundable Deposit – A refundable tenancy deposit totalling 5 weeks rent will be payable upon the singing of the tenancy agreement.

Refundable Holding Deposit – A refundable holding deposit, equal to 1 weeks rent, will be payable upon submitting an application to secure a property.

Change To Tenancy – A fee of £50 inclusive of VAT will be payable by the tenant, if the tenant requests a change to the tenancy agreement. For example, if a tenant is added to or removed from the tenancy agreement.

Early Termination – In the event that the tenant requests to terminate their fixed term tenancy earlier than the contractual end date, then the tenant will be liable to pay the landlord’s reasonable costs for finding a new tenant. Such request will need prior agreement from the landlord and will be without prejudice to the right of the landlord to enforce the terms of the agreement.

Utilities – The tenant will be responsible for the payment of any utility bills, rates and assessments associated with the tenancy. Such payments will be confirmed at the application stage and form part of the tenancy agreement.

Late Payment of Rent – In the event that any rent payments are more than 14 days overdue, the tenant will be charged interest at 3% above the Bank of England base rate.

Lost Keys – The tenant will be charged the reasonable and actual cost of replacing any lost keys and other security devices.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Please note that any agreement is strictly SUBJECT TO CONTRACT.

This means that there can be no binding contract until the Initial rent payment plus deposit has been made and the formal Tenancy Agreement has been signed and exchanged. Payment of the Initial deposit and completion of the Goodlord application form cannot guarantee securing a property In view of the above.

Further, no statements made by the owner, his/her representative or agent may constitute a Tenancy Agreement since the strict terms will only be contained In the signed Tenancy Agreement, It being the  entire agreement.
