If you are looking to rent a property, our team of trained letting and property management professionals will guide you through every step of the process. Below is our seven step guide to successfully renting:
Step 1 - Register your interest
The first step to finding the right property is to register with us either by calling into our Temple Fortune branch, emailing or phoning us. You can then discuss your property requirements with a member of our knowledgeable lettings team who will take the time to understand what is important to you and will assist you with your search.
Step 2 - Finding the right property
Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements, we will notify you of properties that match your criteria. We will also keep you constantly up-to-date when the latest properties become available.
Step 3 - Consider a managed property
An increasing number of tenants insist on renting fully managed properties for complete peace of mind. Renting a managed property has the benefit of our dedicated property management team to handle your day-to-day issues and emergency contact details should a problem arise.
Step 4 - The key to successful viewings
In order to have the best chance of securing a property we recommend an early viewing. We will accompany you throughout so that we are on hand to answer any questions immediately and advise where necessary.
Step 5 - Making an offer
Once you have identified a suitable property you will be required to complete an application for tenancy where you may state any special conditions of the offer and provide details for your references. We will then communicate this offer to the landlord. We will also take an administration fee and holding deposit.
Step 6 - Offer agreed
If your offer is accepted we will organise the following regardless of whether your property is managed:
- Collect references from the referees that you have provided
- Undertake any “Right to Rent” checks that may be necessary
- Arrange the drawing up and signing of the Tenancy Agreement
- Collect your moving in payment (rent + deposit)
- We will arrange the check-in and inventory
Step 7 - Completion
Upon completion, you will be given a set of keys and provided with information regarding the property. If your property is managed we will provide you with your dedicated property manager’s contact details.
