When applying for a property to rent there is an initial, non refundable administration charge of £36.00 per applicant for credit checks & referencing.
If you are eventually granted a tenancy of any property there will be a charge for setting up the Tenancy Agreement documentation in the sum of £96.00
A Guarantor is mandatory. The Guarantor MUST be a home owner. We use the Land Registry database to check all guarantors. Guarantors must also sign the tenancy agreement on our premises with a witness.
We require two forms of ID & references. To speed up the process email addresses of all referees & guarantors should be given to Bakewell & Horner in the before submitting an application.
Some landlords will consider accepting a Tenant who has pets but this is at their discretion.
Should you have a pet you must disclose this on your application form and your pet will be entered on your Tenancy.
Should it be found at any time that there is evidence of a pet in the property that you do not have permission for it is possible that your Landlord will ask you to vacate by giving you 2 months notice to quit.
The first month’s rent on a 6 months Assured Shorthold Tenancy is payable at the commencement of the lease and MUST be paid with cleared funds before signing.
We accept cash, bank transfer or cheque
(Cheques must be 7 days before commencement of lease)
Deposits must be in cleared funds before commencement of the tenancy. Usually the deposit is the same as the first month’s rent. All deposits are registered with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. The deposit is returnable on the cessation of the tenancy proved there are no rent arrears and no repairs/cleaning required over and above fair wear and tear.
LOCAL HOUSING ALLOWANCE
Applicants who are in receipt of Local Housing Allowance must understand that in some cases this may not equate to the total rent required. This being the case it is up to the tenant to ensure that the full amount of rent, as stated in the Tenancy Agreement is paid on the due date.
ALL TENANTS MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE RENT IS THAT OF THE TENANT
