Should you wish to let and proceed with one of our properties, we will require payment of a holding deposit equivalent to 1 week’s rent, which can be apportioned to the first instalment of rent or damage deposit. Subject to certain criteria being met, which may include referencing (if you don’t believe you’ll meet the criteria, we may accept a guarantor), all paperwork being signed and the balance payment of rent and damage deposit being received by us. In addition to referencing criteria, we require “Right to Rent” ID evidence to satisfy the Immigration Act requirements.
