We have a huge number of different properties available, and thus we are confident that we will be able to find the perfect home for you. Not only will we help you every step of the way, but our costs are competitive and transparent too. We provide you with full details regarding our fees upfront, and you can be sure that they are some of the best you will find.


The renting process is a fairly straight forward one, especially when you choose our service, as it is our aim to ensure that everything is wrapped up as quickly and efficiently as possible. Once you have browsed our website and found a property that interests you, we can arrange a viewing.


If you find a property you wish to let, we will then begin the process of doing the necessary checks and setting up the contracts. The landlord will want to ensure that you have rented a property in the past without any big issues, if this is not your first rental property, and they will want to make certain that you can afford the rent and are a suitable tenant. With your permission, we will conduct the relevant searches to make sure this is the case. This may involve details of your employment, a credit check, and references from previous landlords, please see out tenants fees page.


If everything is agreed, the final step in securing the property will be to pay the deposit. This will typically be anything between one and two months rent, usually six weeks. This money will be held during the entire tenancy. It acts as a safety net for the landlord, ensuring money is there to replace any furniture that goes missing or any damage to the property. Before moving into the property, an inventory will be conducted to ensure you cannot be accused of anything that happened before you moved in.


If you have any questions about the rental process, or you would like to begin finding the perfect property for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can give us a call or send an email or simply fill in your details on our Webpage and we will get back to you as quick as we can.
