RENT FROM THE EXPERTS
THE RENTAL PROCESS
Our Lettings Procedure: Our website is updated regularly and if no properties are found which match your requirements please register with us and we will keep you informed as and when suitable properties become available.
You have searched our property database and found your dream property, what next?
Viewings: Call or email us for further property information and to arrange a suitable time to view the property. We appreciate that you may have work and university commitments so we will try our best to accommodate you with our flexible viewing times.
All properties conform to the Repairing Standards, however in terms of level of furnishings and the type of décor, please remember when you view a rental property, you're generally agreeing to take it "as seen" - meaning that the landlord is under no obligation to change anything once the lease is signed. We recommend, therefore that you take your time viewing the property and ask any questions you may have before putting a deposit down on the property.
Application Process: Once you have found a suitable property we will require the following documents/information to process your
Application: Completed and signed Tenancy Application Form
• Photographic identification e.g. passport or driving license
• Proof of address e.g. recent bank statement or utility bill
• Reference from current/previous landlord
Once your application has been processed and credit checks and references have been approved, you can expect to sign your Lease Agreement with the following 7- 14 days.
Guarantor: In certain circumstances a Guarantor may be required. Guarantor’s will be named on the Lease Agreement and will be required to sign a Guarantee Agreement.
Deposit: A deposit of the equivalent of 4-6weeks rent will be taken and retained with the DPS. This will be refunded at the end of the tenancy subject to terms and conditions of the tenancy.
Lease Agreement: All tenants over the age of 18 will be named on the Lease Agreement and will need to be present in the office or the property to sign the Lease Agreement. The agreement will be a Short-Assured Tenancy Agreement, for a fixed term of no less than 6 months which sets out both Landlord and Tenants’ responsibilities. Should you have any queries regarding your lease agreement, we are happy to assist you. You may also wish to seek your own independent advice before signing the Lease Agreement and we are happy for you to do so.
Insurance: The landlord is responsible for insuring the building and the contents detailed in the inventory. Tenants are responsible for arranging contents insurance for their personal possessions and accidental damage to the landlord’s possessions. Neither the landlord nor J W Lets & Co will accept any responsibility for loss or damage to your possessions whilst occupying the property.
Completion: Once all of the paperwork, guarantees and cleared funds are in place, each Tenant will be issued with a copy of the Lease and relevant documentation and a set of keys to their new Happy Home.
