As part of the application, we will endeavor (with your permission) to obtain written references to support the information you provide. This will usually mean contacting your employer(s), current or previous landlord, and someone to give you a character reference. We will also carry out a credit search, using an independent referencing company.
Should we decide a guarantor is required before a tenancy can be granted; the same process of referencing will apply to the guarantor.
We may wish to apply certain restrictions to a tenancy. Please find below some examples of typical restrictions that may be imposed:
- Housing Benefit
You should be advised of any restrictions before an agreed viewing of a property takes place.
Self Employed Applicants
If you are self-employed, we will require a written reference from your bank and accountant. We will also require accounts, usually dating back 3 years.
When can I move in?
As soon as we receive satisfactory replies to our reference inquiries, we shall contact you to agree on a time to move in on the planned commencement date.
We would advise that for the start of the tenancy, you arrange for gas, electric, water, telephone, and council tax accounts to be transferred into your name.
