h2. Useful Information for Applicants: Register your details, requirements and preferred rental level. Make an appointment to view any properties of interest. Once you decide to apply for a tenancy at one of our properties you will be given an application form which must be completed in full. At this time you will be required to pay an administration fee which is non refundable. All adults wishing to live at the property must be named on the Tenancy Agreement and will be Joint and Severally Liable. References will be taken along with a credit check. Please note, if you have any outstanding County Court Judgements this may result in your application being declined. All of our properties are let initially for a minimum term of six months, after which you may continue on the terms of your original Agreement. Please note we do not charge any renewal fees in the first year. It is a client requirement that you take out a Contents Insurance Policy as your Landlord will not be liable for any claims involving your own possessions. Please speak to a member of our staff for more information. If you are in receipt of Housing Benefit you will require a Guarantor, this must be someone with sufficient income to cover the rent if for some reason Housing Benefit do not pay. Please note, Housing Benefit is only typically accepted on studio and one bedroom flats. Once references have been checked we will contact you to agree a starting date and make an appointment for you to come into the office, sign your Tenancy Agreement and collect your keys. At this time you must pay the deposit together with the rent due for that month. (If you are moving in mid-month we will calculate the pro-rata amount due.) Cash and Banker’s Drafts are accepted for this purpose. If you intend to keep pets (please note not all landlords allow pets at the property) you will be required to pay an additional payment towards your deposit (minimum £100.00, at the agents’ discretion).
