    I need to find a place to rent. What do I do first?

    First things first – take a look at our list of rental properties available and think about any must-haves and requirements you have. Are you looking to rent alone? Do you have a group of friends or family members on the hunt with you? Whatever you want, we’re confident we’ll have the ideal rental home for you.

    I’ve found a place I want to rent. Now what?

    The next step is to get in contact and book in a viewing of the property. Our viewings are always accompanied by a member of our award-winning team of letting agents to ensure we can give you as much information as you need and answer any questions you might have along the way.

    Why do I need to be referenced?

    Referencing allows letting agents and landlords to verify information about potential tenants, such as their proficiency in paying rent on time or their attitude during their stay at the property, so they can make a decision about whether they would like to take them on as a tenant.

    What does referencing involve?

    We use a third party, Goodlord, to carry out all of our tenant referencing. They assess your affordability, ensure you have the Right to Rent in the UK and will also contact your current or previous landlord or letting agent for a written statement outlining how they feel you were as a tenant during your time living in their property. This is then passed onto the landlord of the new property you’re wanting to rent, allowing them to make an informed decision.

    Do I need to show ID?

    If you’re viewing a home, you usually won’t be asked to show ID. Once you move to the next stages, however, there will need to be a formal process involved called Right to Rent, in which we need to verify the applicant with a driving licence, passport, or other form of validated ID.

    What if there are problems with my reference?

    A tenant may fail references for various reasons – possibly they didn’t receive the proper information needed from their previous landlord, or their income was too low. However, the decision to rent ultimately lies with the landlord, so it doesn’t necessarily mean the tenant won’t be able to rent the property as a result of a failed reference.

    What is a guarantor?

    A guarantor is a person a tenant provides during the rental process to assure the estate agent or landlord that even if the tenant becomes unable to pay rent for whatever reason, the monthly rent outlined in the rental agreement will always be paid on time by the guarantor provided. This might be necessary if the tenant is on a particularly low income, has no current means of income, or is a student. There is also the option of guarantor insurance through schemes such as Housing Hand and Your Guarantor.

    What does a guarantor need to do?

    A guarantor simply needs to agree to clauses set out in a rental contract, outlining that they promise to provide the pre-agreed monthly rental amount if the tenant is or becomes unable to do so.

    Why does my guarantor have to guarantee all tenants?

    If you’re moving into a shared property, your guarantor may have to agree to guarantee the rent of all tenants involved. This is because there is no individual ‘share’ of rent written into the agreement, so the guarantor is automatically agreeing to take responsibility for the collective rent as a whole.

    Why do I have to pay a deposit?

    The deposit is part of a tenant’s agreement and promise to the landlord to keep the property in good condition throughout the duration of their time living there.

    What will happen to my deposit?

    Your deposit will be kept safe by the landlord or estate agent until it’s time for you to move out of the property. There will then be an assessment done of the house and the deposit will be returned to you, either in full or minus any deductions for damage.

    What does a Tenancy Deposit Scheme do?

    A TPS protects your deposit throughout your stay, and can also offer support in the case of disputes over deposits when you come to leave the property.

    What is a tenancy agreement?

    A tenancy agreement is a contract signed by all parties in the rental process that outlines all the terms and conditions involved.

    What is an inspection?

    An inspection is a check-in of the rental property conducted by the landlord or estate agent to assess how the current occupants are treating or looking after the property. There will also be inspections periodically throughout the tenancy.

    Who is responsible for repairs?

    The landlord is usually responsible for maintaining the state of the property. However, if a tenant causes any damage, they are expected to cover these costs.

    Can I decorate or make changes to the property?

    Details will be outlined in the tenancy agreement, but usually tenants will not be allowed to make serious changes to a property. It’s worth checking in with the landlord if you’re unsure.

    What if I accidentally cause damage to the property?

    Landlords understand accidents happen – the best thing to do is to let them know as soon as possible. You will likely be expected to cover any necessary costs involved.

    What if the landlord isn’t keeping to their side of the agreement?

    In this instance, it’s always advised to speak to the letting agent and let them know of any issues. They will be able to get in contact with the landlord and offer help. Alternatively, tenants can always speak to the Citizens Advice Bureau for independent advice.

    When can my landlord enter the property?

    Unless it’s a case of emergency, the landlord must give proper notice to the tenant prior to entering the property.

    What if I want to end the tenancy?

    This depends on the terms of your contract – if you have agreed to rent the property for a certain period, this will likely be necessary until that fixed term is over. There may be cases where get-out clauses apply.

    What if I can’t pay my rent?

    If you are unable to pay rent, the responsibility to provide the rent may fall on the guarantor’s shoulders (if there is one named in the rental agreement).
