Information for Tenants
 

 

1. FINDING A PROPERTY

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the type of property

you are looking for.  Our search for a suitable property for you will then begin.  If your requirement

is not urgent we will keep your details on file so that we can contact you as suitable properties

become available.  It is wise to start looking about a 4-6 weeks before you wish to move, as the

nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of

six months.

 

2. VIEWINGS 

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you

will always be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions

you may have.  We can offer transport to viewings, if required.

 

3. RESERVING THE PROPERTY

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying an 'Administration and

Referencing' fee of 350 plus VAT (420.00) for single occupancy or 450.00 plus VAT (540.00)

    for two adults and for each additional adult of if

you required a guarantor the cost would be 150 plus VAT (180.00) the landlord declines to grant

the tenancy, it will be refunded. However this fee will not be refunded if you decide not to proceed

for any reason or you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

We must stress that properties are taken as seen.  If there are any aspects of the property that

you are not happy with then please present them to us BEFORE paying your administration fee.

Company lets are charged at 450 plus VAT (540.00)

 

4. REFERENCES

All tenants are fully referenced by a proffesional referencing company, without exception.  These

include your employer (or college) and perhaps previous employer, a previous or current landlord,

a credit check will be made and we may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a

guarantor. 

 

5. FURNISHED/PART-FURNISHED/UNFURNISHED

There are many variations on this and no strict rules, but generally speaking all properties

offered by Lets Rent would normally have a fridge, cooker and washing machine with curtains or

blinds at all windows. 

 

Fully Furnished will also normally have beds, bedside table, settee, coffee table, dinning

table & chairs,cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and glasses, kettle and they may have a microwave

and/or dishwasher.

 

Partly Furnished may have a bed or beds and settee but may not have much more

 

Unfurnished will probably have no additional items

 

If you particularly like a property but want it partly furnished please ask us and we will pass on

your request to the landlord.  They may be able to offer you additional items or indeed

remove items from a property, if requested.

 

6. THE INVENTORY 

The Inventory, coupled with the schedule of condition, is a thorough investigation and report on the

state of decoration, condition and contents of each room of the property that you will be

renting. Please take the time to go through the inventory with the inventory clerk when you

are checked into the property and note any items that you do not agree with.  This will prove to be

crucial on check out and will protect your deposit.

 

7. DECORATING

Should you wish to make any changes to the property, you must inform us in writing and wait until

permission is given before any work commences.

 

7. THE TENANCY AGREEMENT

A Tenancy agreement is a legally binding contract. If you are unsure about the wording of the document you should seek professional legal advice.
