Finding a good property can be a tough task, especially with the number of letting agents out there and the range of services they offer.
As a Letting Agent, we believe you should have what YOU want, not what we want to try to sign you up for.
Our aim is make your hunt for that perfect home as stress-free as possible. Every step of the process is covered.
Your satisfaction is our top priority and we see our tenants as individuals, so you can always expect the very best service.
We are also proud members of the Deposit Protection Scheme, so your deposit is always protected under this Government Scheme.
We will show you around any property you are interested in, and answer any questions you may have honestly and fully. We recommend that viewings take place in daylight hours, so you get a really good look at the property and the neighbourhood.
All of the properties on our books have the required certification for health and safety - such as GAS SAFE safety certification for gas appliances. Electrical Certificates etc.
We will draw up the Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreements with your landlord, and provide you with copies of all documentation that relates to t.
We will also ask you to pay a deposit to be held as security against any damage or breakages. The deposit money will be returned to you when the tenancy is ended, assuming there are no damages or breakages to pay out of it. The deposit money can not be used as your last month's rent. In line with current legislation security deposits will always be registered under one of the tenancy deposit schemes ensuring your money is safe at all times.
When you move into a property, if it is fully managed, we will take a full inventory of the items in the property and a note of their condition. You will be given a copy of this for your records. Keep it safe, because it will be referred to when you leave the property at the end of the tenancy, to see if anything is missing, damaged or broken.
We strongly recommend you take out insurance against loss or damage to your possessions while you are renting. ’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
Tenancies are granted for a minimum of 6 months, and renewed every 6 or 12 months, although an Assured Shorthold Tenancy can be anything up to three years in length before renewal is necessary if both parties agree. If you wish to leave the property, you will need to give one calendar months notice in writing one month prior to the end of the fixed term.
To reserve a property, you will need to pay what is called a holding deposit, this allows us to take the property off the market and apply for your references and necessary checks.
If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy for any reason, the money would be returned to you. However, if you decide not to go ahead with the tenancy, the holding deposit will not be refunded.
As a minimum, we will require satisfactory references from your employer, current or previous landlord and your bank. We may also ask for a personal reference, and in some cases, a guarantor. We will also run a credit check on you so that we can reassure the landlord that you can afford the rent.
In some cases, we will use an independent referencing company to source and evaluate the references.
From 6th April 2007, security deposits need to be either held by a third-party custodian company or insured for the duration of the tenancy. In the case of properties managed by
NT Lettings & Management Ltd, we will be insuring deposits, however, in the case of 'Letting Only' properties, it will be for the individual landlords to decide whether your deposit will be insured or handed to a custodian company.
The government has initiated the custodian scheme to help resolve disputes over how much of the deposit a landlord can hold back to pay for any repairs or damages. The custodian will ensure that any amount that is withheld is justified and that both parties are treated fairly, as is also the case for insured deposits.
Rents are normally quoted for a calendar month and paid a month in advance. We will ask that you complete a standing order form on the signing of your tenancy agreement and it is your responsibility to set it up directly with your bank.
Depending on the type of property, and the arrangements with the Landlord , normally you will have to pay the water rates for the property, and the gas, electricity and telephone bills. You will also be responsible for the council tax on the property unless you are a student, in which case you will need to prove to the Council that you are in full-time education.
We do consider Tenants on Universal Credit also.
