Tenants Information

New Tenant Requirements:

From all applicants we ask for valid Photo ID and a reference from a previous landlord, or if you have not rented previously, we will usually ask you for a UK homeowner guarantor or 3 months’ rent in advance.

If you are working, we will ask for a reference from your employer and payslips or bank statements. If you are in new employment, we may also ask for a UK homeowner guarantor and/or previous employment references.

If you are self-employed we will ask to see your most recent business accounts or request an accountant’s reference, we may request a UK homeowner guarantor where there is no accounts history.

If you are a student we will need a letter from your college or university to confirm you are a student there and a UK homeowner guarantor or 3 months’ rent in advance.

All applications to rent a property are subject to the final approval of the landlord.

  • Rent
  • A Refundable Tenancy Deposit (Equivalent to 5 weeks rent)
