Finding a property
We appreciate that moving homes can be an extremely stressful process; we aim to make it as straight forward as possible. By contacting us and telling us your property requirements we can recommend suitable properties. We advise to start looking a month before you wish to move. Our tenancies are granted for an initial term of 6 months.
We cater to everybody's needs so we can arrange viewings at times to suit your availability, including evenings and weekends. Viewings are normally accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposit'. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. However the deposit will be forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.
