When applying you will be required to pay a holding deposit equal to one weeks rent. Your holding deposit will secure the property for 14 days. If you fail to enter into an agreement after 14 days, the property will be made available unless agreed otherwise. If you fail to enter into an agreement the holding deposit will not be returned however If your landlord declines your application your holding deposit will be returned.
If the landlord accepts the application (in principle) we will pass this information on to our referencing company to carry out the necessary referencing, this will include employer references, landlord references and credit checks on Tenants or Guarantors.
