With our flexible longer opening hours we can offer accompanied viewings to suit you, whether this is during the day, in your lunch break, during the evening, or even on a Saturday.
Securing the property for you
Once you have found the property you would like to rent we will inform the landlord of your interest for his consideration. We require 1 weeks rent as a reservation fee. This holds the property for a maximum of 15 days. Within this timescale we will need to complete your references and sign the tenancy in readiness for your tenancy start date. The tenancy must commence within 4 weeks of paying this reservation deposit. This deposit will be refunded to you off your first month’s rent. We also ask that you sign and return all documents before we can send you a full application form via email. The email will be sent from a company called UkTenantData. It will ask you to enter your personal details, such as your current address, employers details, and once you have completed this we can move on to the relevant credit checks and references.
Each prospective tenant (over the age of 18 years) is vetted through UK Tenant Data an independent referencing agency. Each tenant intending to live in the property must therefore complete a reference application form. This application form asks for personal information and is used to conduct a Credit Assessment. Before an application can proceed we also require two forms of identification for each applicant: • Photo ID such as a driving licence or passport • Proof of address such as a utility bill, bank statement or Council Tax statement not older than 3 months The reference/credit checks usually take 4-5 working days to be completed, but this timescale can vary. Our staff can email you the forms to complete and return. A Tenancy application cannot proceed without a reservation fee, photo ID and proof of address.
Signing Tenancy Agreements
Once the references have been satisfactorily completed and approved by the Landlord we will be able to offer you a tenancy. We will arrange for you to sign the Tenancy Agreement. This is usually on or before the commencement date of the tenancy. The Tenancy Agreement governs all rents, which is a legal and binding document. You will be committed to paying rent until the end of the agreed term and you could be liable to legal action if you break the terms of the agreement. If your circumstances should change for any reason during your tenancy, it is a good idea to tell your Landlord or Movenowlettings as soon as possible.
Before your tenancy begins you will be required to pay the initial rental payment and deposit (the deposit is calculated as 5 weeks rent). Any money payable to Movenowlettings must be paid in cleared funds (we cannot accept personal cheques). Usually the easiest and quickest method of payment is via Bacs transfer. We also accept Debit Card, Maestro, Switch, Solo or Visa Delta.
Upon moving into the property we carry out an inventory. The inventory is to record details of the condition of the property and fixtures, fittings and furnishings this is to protect you and the landlord. When the deposit and initial rental payment is made and all paperwork has been completed we will then release the keys to your NEW HOME.
