Referencing, Credit Searches and Holding Fee

Until a signed and completed Application and Guarantor Form(s) is received together with a Holding Fee of �100.00 plus vat (One Hundred Pounds) the property cannot be reserved. The holding fee will be deducted from the total amount due (Application fee, agreed rent & deposit) on the signing of the initial tenancy agreement.

All applications must be submitted with the required proof of address, e.g. a utility bill dated within the last 2 months, (Mobile phone bills are not acceptable), we also require your most recent 3 months bank statements, (They must show account holder name, number and sort code).

All applicants will be referenced and thorough credit searches undertaken. If inaccurate information is supplied which results in an adverse report being received from our Referencing Agents the application will be rejected and the Holding Fee retained. If for any reason the property is withdrawn by the landlord the Holding Fee against that property will be returned in full.


In some instances a Guarantor may be required. If this is the case the Guarantor will be referenced and subject to a credit search in the same manner as the applicant and must be able to show sufficient income or savings to cover the rental payments in the event that the tenant defaults for whatever reason.

Tenancy Agreement

Once all satisfactory references have been obtained and a moving date agreed an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement will be drawn up ready for signing by the tenant (and if required the Guarantor). Under no circumstances will the tenancy commence until the Agreement has been signed by all parties.
