Fentons knows that finding the right rental property can take some deliberation. That’s why we’re here to make the process as easy as possible and help you find the perfect property to suit your needs. Take a look at our step-by-step guide below, to see what we can do for you.
The first step is to contact us and give a few brief details about yourself and the type of accommodation you’re looking for. We’ll then search our database for properties that match your needs. If not urgent, we’ll still log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. We advise looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties get snapped up quickly!
A few important points for your safety and peace of mind:
We appreciate how busy life can be, so we’ll arrange all viewings to suit your timings. If you can only make an evening or weekend, don’t stress, you’ll still always be accompanied by a member of Fentons, who can offer advice and answer any questions you may have.
GOODBYE ADMIN FEES
You should never pay administration fees when applying for a property, so here at Fentons, we will never charge them. Simple as that.
To be fair to our landlords, as a minimum, we ask for satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report.
We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. Please note, sometimes we’ll use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references. We are also required to check your right to rent if you have come from abroard.
Rental payments are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for council tax, water rates, and bills such as gas, electricity and telephone. Rent can be paid by standing order to our company bank account, or directly to your landlord.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month’s rent will normally be taken when you’re ready to move in. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and we’ll let you know which protection scheme is used. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
We’d love to find you that perfect rental home, so please do get in touch and let us know how we can help you.
