TENANCY PROCESS

Viewing

Having identified prospective properties, BRACEWELLS Lettings will arrange for you to view the properties. These will be arranged at a time to suit you, which could be on evenings or weekends, subject of course to the Landlords permission. Viewing will always be accompanied by the local BRACEWELLS representative, who will be able to provide immediate advice and answer any questions you may have.


Application

Having selected a property, we need you to complete a written application form to apply to rent the property. At this time any details or requirements can be agreed, including occupancy date, duration of the letting, etc.


References

BRACEWELLS will take references on behalf of the landlord. Normally, this will include your employer, any former landlord and a character reference. In addition, a credit check will be undertaken.

Where a tenant is unable to meet the required income or credit checks, the tenant may be able to have a Guarantor agree to underwrite any rent liabilities.


Deposit

A deposit is required prior to occupation. This is normally equal to about 6 week’s rent but may vary. Check with your BRACEWELLS representative. This deposit will be protected in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection legislation where applicable.

The deposit is held to cover your obligations under the tenancy agreement including any breakages, damage, or other tenant liabilities. At the end of the tenancy BRACEWELLS Lettings, or an independent Inventory Agent, will check the property in the presence of the tenant and assess any damages and deductions due.

Rent

Rents are normally quoted on a calendar month basis. In addition, the tenant is normally responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs.

Rents are payable by standing order (unless alternative arrangements are agreed in advance) to the BRACEWELLS Client Account, monthly in advance, with the first month`s rent due before taking occupation of the premises.
