To Let Houses 1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom
To apply for the property each applicant over the age of 18 will need to complete a pre-tenancy form. Once received, a holding fee of 1 weeks rent per property is payable. For successful applicants the holding fee will be offset against the initial rent and deposit, with your agreement. We will then require you to be referenced, for this we use a referencing company.
Once the holding fee has been paid the landlord has 15 days to agree to proceed with the application or refund the full amount.
If the tenancy does not go ahead then the money must be repaid in full within 7 days of the deadline being reached or the landlord backing out.
Repayment does not need to be in full if the tenant backs out of the tenancy agreement themselves, fails right to rent checks, has provided false or misleading information, or where the landlord tries their best to get the information needed but the tenant fails to provide it within the 15 days.
Right to Rent
You will also need to provide a passport and a utility bill or bank statement received within the last month to the referencing company. Both must show your current address. These can either be scanned or photographed. Sight of the actual documents will be required at check in.
Mint Homes recommends tenants have adequate contents and liability insurance in place.
If you need help finding suitable cover at a competitive price, we can suggest Alan Boswell Insurance Brokers, a chartered Insurance Broker. Quotes can be obtained from their quote and buy site at https://www.tenantsquote.co.uk/3601
Please note that an application is based on your annual income . The referencing agency requires tenants to earn 30 x 1 month’s rent between them to rent a property (e.g. 30 x £600pcm = £18,000p.a.)
