Deposits

  • All deposits will be registered in a tenancy deposit scheme – which is the government based scheme
  • We normally ask for the first months rent + £100 as a deposit. For example a rent of £550pcm + £100 top up deposit = deposit would be £650
  • The deposit money will need to be paid before the move in date can go ahead.

Inventory

  • We will then instruct an independent inventory clerk to do a full condition report of the property a few days before you move in. This report includes all meter readings. This report is to ensure that your deposit is protected with photographic evidence that you took the property in that condition. Without this report deposit aren’t easy to claim back.

Moving day

  • A few days before the move in date we just need your time in the office to take the initial monies for the rent, deposit and check out fee for the end of the tenancy. Plus a chance to read and sign through the tenancy agreement.
  • We will then answer any questions you may have about the tenancy and book you in for a time on the move in date to collect the keys and meet us at the property.
  • When you move in to your new home we go through and sign the inventory report for the property. We will then give you the keys together with a welcome pack containing all relevant contact details.
