The renting process

Step 1 – Register with us

When speaking to one of our negotiators they will take the time to explore your preferences and must haves when it comes to your new home. We will then set up an alert to send you suitable properties before they even come to market.

Step 2 – Complete an application form

We ask all applicants to complete an application form once they have registered with us. This means we can ensure you will pass referencing when you are put forward for a property and puts you in a position where you can proceed with a property as soon as it comes available. It is essential that you are honest at this point and advise us of any adverse credit you may have, maybe do a credit check on yourself to be sure!

Step 3 – Attend viewings

We recommend that you do as much research as possible online in preparation for your viewings. We offer video virtual tours on all our properties so that you can begin your property search from the comfort of your own home, enabling you to make a short list of properties you would like to view.

Step 4 – Being accepted for a property

Now you have found your perfect property our team will work with the Landlord to get you accepted.

Step 5 – Referencing

Once you have been accepted we will commence with the referencing progress this consists of a credit check, verifying your income and obtaining a reference for your employment and a Landlord reference where applicable.

Step 6 – Moving in

Once the referencing process is all completed we can confirm a move in date. On the day one of our team will meet you at the property to hand over the keys.

Report a repair

We know that our Tenants have busy lives so we make it easy for you to report maintenance 24/7 via our online property portal. When reporting maintenance this way it allows you to provide extensive information on the issue along with pictures & videos so our property managers can fully understand what has been reported.

Zero Deposit

Moving home can be costly, making it hard to find your deposit, first month’s rent and the other costs of moving. A Zero Deposit Guarantee costs the equivalent of one week’s rent and replaces the traditional tenancy deposit, aiming to make renting more affordable.

Pay less upfront: Free up cash by paying a fee equivalent to one week’s rent.

More choice: Zero Deposit gives tenants an alternative to the traditional deposit.

Greater freedom when moving: Avoid having to fund a second deposit when moving from one rental property to another.
