TENANCY APPLICATION AND GUIDE- PLEASE READ THROUROUGHLY
All applications are subject to contract and a holding deposit equivalent of 1 weeks rent is required to secure the application. At the time of making payment of the holding deposit a deadline date will be given for the agreement to be signed subject to all relevant checks being returned satisfactorily, this will usually be 15 days unless a different date is agreed by all parties. On successful checks and agreement to proceed with the application your holding deposit can then either be refunded to you OR used to make part of your full deposit.
You must disclose any information that may have an adverse effect on your application such as county court judgements, bankruptcy orders, poor landlord or employment references. If you provide false or misleading information to the landlord or agent which the landlord is reasonably entitled to consider in deciding whether to grant the tenancy because this materially affects their suitability to rent the property, your holding deposit will not be refunded. Should you fail the Right to Rent Check your holding deposit will not be refunded, should you fail to take all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement your holding deposit would not be refundable, should you decide at the latter stages of the application to withdraw your holding deposit may not be refunded.. Should the landlord or agent decide to not proceed with your application during the process then your holding deposit will be refunded to you except in circumstances detailed above whereby you withheld information relevant to your application and that is the reason the agent or landlord chooses not to proceed with your application.
Once you have viewed the property and wish to put an application in we will check with the landlord if they are happy to proceed with your application, if they are you will then need to ensure you supply completed application/declaration forms all relevant documentation requested within 48 hours. If there is more than one interested party looking to apply for the same property we put all parties to the landlord and they make the decision who to proceed with.
Each applicant over the age of 18 will need to be referenced and undergo the Right to Rent Check; this includes guarantor(s) if applicable although there is no requirement for the Guarantor to undergo the Right to Rent Check.
Once your reference checks are completed you and accepted as a pass we then require you to sign the tenancy agreement the deposit which equates to the equivalent of 5 weeks rent will then be due for payment, the 1st months rent will be due for payment 5 days before the tenancy start date as long as the tenancy agreement has been signed.
Should your application proceed to a fixed term tenancy you must understand that the tenancy agreement you sign will be legally binding for the period of that tenancy term. Any requests for an early surrender would have to be agreed by the landlord and you would be liable for all the landlords costs and rent up to the start date of a new tenancy. You would also incur a surrender fee of £50.00 inclusive of vat.
