Essential Tenant Steps

Congratulations, you’ll soon be moving into your new home.

To get in as soon as possible please follow the following steps

Step 1 – Download our App

Our app features essential tools and access. Download here.

Step 2 – Register for Property File
Through the PropertyFile app you will be able to see how your application process is getting on and keep it throughout your tenancy with us. You can find all your tenancy details in one place and report maintenance issues and track their progress. You can also view your payment history, making sure that you are on top of your finances with us. Once you apply to register you will be receive an email shortly with details on how to complete the registration.

Step 3 – Referencing
You will receive a link, by email, from Credit Builder where you will fill in your details for referencing purposes and return it to them. The quicker you do this then the quicker the process will take.

Step 3 – You have passed referencing
Your nearly there! Both ourselves and your Landlord want you to pay your rent on time and in full, of course we do and we’re sure you do too. Through Credit Builder your rental payments can be linked to your Experian credit score like mortgage payments are for homeowners. We would hope that you join this opportunity to build your credit score by signing up with Credit Builder through the Walton & Allen app. Further links on this app allow you to register with Experian for free forever credit rating, which is updated every 30 days.

Step 4 – Consider Insurance
Our partner’s Tenant’s Contents Insurance is designed to offer you complete peace of mind. Cover is provided for accidental damage to the landlords property, up to £2,500.
This is an important benefit, and helps protect your deposit. This policy provides cover for your household contents and personal possessions including:
• Accidental Cover to Home Entertainment Equipment
• New-for-old replacements
• Cover for your contents away from home
• Cost of alternative accommodation if you home is uninhabitable
• New locks if your keys are stolen
• Accidental damage to the landlords property
• Tenant’s liability Insurance
• Loss or theft of money and credit cards

Step 5 – Move in Day
On or before this day you will need to pay your deposit and the first months’ rent. You will also need to bring in your ID to prove that you have a ‘right to rent’ in this country.

Step 6 – Enhance your Experian Credit Score
By signing up you will enhance your Experian credit score with every rental payment that you pay on time and in full. You can also sign up to your free forever Experian Credit Score and check it 24/7.

All of this is also available by downloading the Walton & Allen app, plus much much more! Download here.
