Guide for Tenants
Finding a property
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself
and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database
for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your
details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become
available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you
wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly.
We regret that we cannot assist dss claimants. Our tenancies are
granted for a minimum term of 6 months.
If you are looking for a property to rent outside Manchester, please
go to our UK Network page.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings
and weekends, and you will invariably be 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', usually equivalent to £45 per
tenant. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, some of 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 accurate information in your application.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer
(or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require
a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit
check will be undertaken. We may use the services of an independent
referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly
in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax,
Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are
payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental must be paid,
and will be held by ourselves as stakeholders in a secure client
account throughout the tenancy term. This is held to cover damage,
breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy
agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit
be used by the tenant to cover rent.
