Narrow your search
when you start the search for your ideal home it is worth considering your requirements:
- Think about the location you’d like to live in
- Consider your ‘must have’ list – what do you really want?
- What’s your budget? Would you pay more for the right property?
- How long do you need the accommodation for? Is it a stop gap or a long term solution?
When would you like to move in? Work backwards and start your search around six to eight weeks before this
In order to secure a property we recommend an early viewing and we will accompany you throughout so that we are on hand to answer any questions immediately and advise where necessary
- Arrange an Inventory with you
- Collect from you your first month’s Rent and the Tenancy Arrangement fee,
- Agree the moving in date and for you to sign the Tenancy Agreement.
Congratulations, you can now move into your new home!
- Renewing your Tenancy
If you do want to renew the tenancy, we will liaise with you directly and send you all the necessary paperwork to complete. If your circumstances have changed, some new checks may be needed, but this will be advised on at the time.
Note: Remember the landlord at this stage will be within his/her rights to serve notice on your tenancy if they need the property back or there have been any persistent issues.
- Moving out
If we manage the property on behalf of the landlord, we’ll arrange a check out with you (carried out on the last day of your tenancy) to ensure the property is left in an appropriate condition – at this point, you’ll hand back the keys. If the landlord manages the property, you’ll need to liaise with them directly in order to arrange a time and date to meet there, complete a check out and hand the keys back.
After serving your notice you’ll need to ensure that the property is left in good condition in order for you to be entitled to your full deposit back. If there are no deductions or disputes and all the necessary forms are filled out correctly by you and by the landlord, your deposit should be returned within 14 days after the deposit release agreements have been received.
Pardoning normal wear-and-tear, if the property is in the same condition as when you moved in, getting your deposit back should be no problem.
Here’s what to do next:
- Give the property a thorough clean, including carpets, windows, walls and furniture (if necessary hire a professional cleaner)
- If it’s your responsibility, tidy up the garden and clear away any rubbish
- Return all of the keys
- Remove all of your personal belongings
- Redirect all your letters
- Cancel your utility, council tax and any other paying responsibilities you may have at the property.
If you need any help either before or after your tenancy call us and we’ll be happy to help.
