An Application Fee secures a property for a maximum period of four weeks, subject to Landlord approval. The property is withdrawn from the market for a maximum period of 3 working days, whilst application forms are completed on line and supporting documentation is provided. Our Application Fees are as follows:
£162.00 including VAT per person.
£162.00 including VAT per guarantor (should a guarantor be required).
You will be asked for information pre-application, before any monies are taken. It is imperative that the information provided at this time is correct, as decisions particularly in relationship to affordability, will be made. As only one application is taken per property these monies are NOT refundable.
Upon receipt of the appropriate application fees, application forms will be sent out electronically for on line submission.
All persons over the age of 18, who will be resident at the property, must be referenced. All completed application forms and supporting documentation must be supplied within 3 working days of the application fee being paid.
Sight of your last three months bank statements may be required or a bank status enquiry can be carried out at your request. In some cases, we may ask for an Accountant’s reference.
If you have rented accommodation before we will require a reference from your previous Landlord.
If you have had a mortgage, we may require sight of your latest mortgage statement.
Two original forms of ID will be required for every applicant (one must be photographic). e.g. Driving Licence, Passport, Utility Bill.
Applications generally take 48 hours to process. We will contact you once this process is complete to confirm your moving date.
EACH applicant AND your guarantor (if applicable) will be required to sign the Tenancy Agreement PRIOR to the tenancy commencing.
Further to satisfactory references being obtained the tenancy will proceed subject to authorisation from the property owner. At this time the full property deposit will be due. The deposit is the equivalent of exactly 5 weeks of the agreed rent.
The deposit is calculated as Monthly Rent x 12 (Months in a year) ÷ 52 (Weeks in a year) x 5 (Weeks Rent).
For example, a monthly rent of £550.00 would be 550.00 x 12 ÷ 52 x 5 = £634.61 deposit.
Additional clauses to the standard Tenancy Agreement (including Pet Clauses) will incur an additional charge of £48.00 (including VAT) per clause.
The first months rent must be paid by cleared funds, on or before the moving in date.
You will be asked to sign a standing order mandate to collect future months rental payments.
The rent you pay is exclusive and hence does not include gas, electricity, water rates, council tax or telephone charges unless otherwise stated. The transfer of utilities into your name can be undertaken by Professional Properties at a charge of £6.00 (including VAT) per utility, otherwise, it is your responsibility to transfer the utilities.
All of our properties are available on a minimum fixed term, six-month assured shorthold tenancy only, unless otherwise stated. At the end of the fixed term, if a new tenancy agreement is completed there will be an administration charge of £84.00 (including VAT).
