Applying for a rental property

So you’ve found a property that you love and naturally you want to know how to get your hands on the keys.

The first thing you need to do is give Walton&Allen a call to register your interest. Our properties move fast so you don’t want to get your heart set on a new home only to find out it’s been let out that very morning. Give us a call and our friendly estate agency team will be only too happy to arrange a viewing.

Once you’ve had a look around the property and made up your mind you will need to pay part of the deposit (starting from £275) in order to secure the property while your application is being processed. In order to apply for the property you will need to fill out a tenancy application form and, if you’re a student or a first time tenant you’ll also need to provide a guarantor and so you’ll need to provide us with a completed guarantor application form. If you can’t get a guarantor then we would require six months rent in advance.

If your application is successful then you will be required to provide a deposit which is secured with the Deposit Protection Service and repayable when you move out of the property if everything is in order.

Finally we will draw up a tenancy agreement between you and your landlord. Once we’ve got the full deposit and a signed tenancy agreement we can then arrange a moving in day.

If you have any questions about applying for one of Walton & Allen’s properties to rent please feel free to give us a call and one of our lettings agents will be happy to help.
