Although Letting Agents have different procedures, this guide is intended as a general overview to assist you when renting a property. We have set out below a few significant pointers to assist you.
Your Offer – Once we have found your suitable property, you will be in a position to make an offer to the Landlord for consideration. Please note that any offer you make would be subject to you fulfilling our reference criteria.
At this point, you will be requested to provide a HOLDING DEPOSIT which reserves the property for you.
Agreeing the Let- As soon as your offer has been accepted by the Landlord, we will apply for references and draw up the relevant documentation which will form the basis of the agreement between you and the Landlord. You will be provided with a lettings pack outlining all the specific requirements.
Tenancy Agreement – An appointment will be arranged with you to visit our offices to sign the Tenancy Agreement when all references have been received. The Landlord will also be asked to sign their copy of the document.
Rent and Deposit – You will be required to provide the agreed sum of rent and deposit before taking possession of the property.
The deposit is required for the full tenancy against loss, damage or charges payable at the termination of the tenancy. Whilst this is usually the equivalent of six weeks rent, this may vary and you will be notified at the start of the process. The deposit will be held by Stonehouse Estates in their designated clients’ account and is fully bonded. It is returnable in full at the end of the tenancy subject to final inspection of the property and it should be noted that deductions will also be made for cleaning should the property (and garden areas) not have been left in a satisfactory condition.
Rent is to be paid monthly in advance commencing on the first day of the tenancy and then on the same day each month thereafter. The preferred method is by bank standing order.
- We charge an application fee of £150 including VAT which is non-refundable, even if a tenancy is refused on the grounds of references or if the tenant withdraws from taking the property. A fee of £150 including VAT is charged to the tenant for renewal of all fixed term tenancies
Please note that all monies to be paid on the signing of the agreement prior to the occupation and should be paid by Debit/Credit card or by bankers draft, unless they are paid a minimum of seven working days prior to occupancy by bank transfer.
Check in and Condition Report - A Condition Report will be prepared of your new home and a convenient appointment will be made with the Inventory Clerk to carry out a Check In report to coincide with your move in day. A fee of £142 - £500 will be charged depending on the number of bedrooms.
