Renting Tips and Advice

When applying for rental properties it is best to supply as much information as possible with your tenancy application form: ID documents (driver licence and passport), payslips, bank statements, tenancy ledgers and references. This will give you the best chance to be accepted as one of our new tenants.

Before signing any agreement/lease prior to renting a property, you should read all the terms and conditions of the lease carefully and ask questions if you do not understand. This lease is binding and effectively a contract between two parties. Do your research to see that the price of the property is competitive with others that are similar in accommodation and style. Two to three weeks is usually all you need to find and secure a new rental accommodation.

Although landlords may have contents insurance on their property, this covers them for carpet, paint, light fittings etc, it does not cover the tenant’s personal belongings. We recommend that all tenants obtain their own contents insurance so that their belongings are insured.

All new tenants will need to connect their electricity, gas, telephone, internet etc if required. We can organise connection of the utilities if requested.

How to end a fixed term agreement
If the tenant wants to end the tenancy at the end of a fixed term agreement, at least 14 days written notice must be given (notice can be given until the final day of the fixed term period, otherwise the agreement becomes a periodic agreement).

How to end a periodic agreement
A periodic agreement may be ended by a tenant by giving at least 21 days written notice.
