Once you have chosen the property you wish to rent, contact the office to make an offer. It is important to remember that for the best properties there may be a number of people looking to rent it and if you delay in making a decision it may go to someone else.
You will be asked what rental price you are offering, what length of lease you would be looking to commit to as well as who would be staying in the property and your personal circumstances. If you have any other requests with regards to the Lease agreement this should be also be made now – e.g. garden maintenance included, any requests with regards to decoration, requests to move or add any furniture, permission to install satellite TV have a pet, etc.
Once an agreement has been made in principal with the landlord you will be asked for a £200 reservation fee and to complete an application form. Once the fee and the completed form have been received no further viewings will be made at the property and the details will be removed from the internet.
Once your references have been completed successfully draft lease documents will be produced for you to review. You are advised that you should always seek your own legal advice before signing a lease.
Should you withdraw from the offer to lease the reservation fee is non refundable.
