Below is a short and straightforward timeline laying out what happens when you are looking for a new place to call home.
Step 1 – You see a property we are letting that you are interested in.
Step 2 – Check out the virtual tour to get a feel for the property.
Step 3 – If you like what you see and want to move on to the next step, we will pre-qualify you by asking the questions below.
- What property are you interested in?
- Who are going to be the tenants?
- When do you want to move in?
- What length of time are you looking to rent for?
- Will you be looking to keep pets there?
- How do your credit history and references look?
We will then contact the landlord and see if this is all agreeable to them before going to the next step.
Step 4 – An in-person viewing. Get a real-time feel for the place, and its space and potential.
Step 5 – If you want the property, it’s time to act, and quickly. Let us know immediately as properties in our area are in demand. We’ve already pre-qualified you, so we will let the landlord know. If they agree to rent it to you, it’s onto the next step.
Step 6 – You pay a holding deposit, and the referencing checks begin. At this point we stop viewings, although not all letting agents do.
Step 7 – As long as everything comes back ok, we can get you a moving-in date and complete the paperwork.
Step 8 – Moving-in day – We’ll meet you at the property to hand over keys and talk you through anything you need to know.
Step 9 – Enjoy your new home.
