Application Procedure: 
A tenancy will be offered to you subject to contract and, more specifically, subject to the following conditions:- 
● A fully completed application form has been submitted together with the holding deposit and Photographic ID. 
● A satisfactory credit search has been carried out by an independent credit referencing agency (details on request). 
● Satisfactory references have been obtained. 
● The landlord has accepted the offer in writing. 
Once a holding deposit has been paid the landlord has 15 days to decide whether or not to grant the tenancy. The landlord or agent does not have to repay the full holding deposit if the tenant withdraws from taking the tenancy, fails right to rent checks or fails to provide accurate information to the landlord to enable the granting of the tenancy. 
If the tenancy is granted the holding deposit will be allocated towards the tenancy deposit, unless you request in writing that this is to be allocated towards the first months rental payment or to be refunded. 
Prior to the start of the tenancy, the first months rent and deposit is requested via bank transfer. 
If in any doubt as to what is included within the let (i.e. furniture, appliances, etc.) you should seek further clarification prior to submitting your application. In most cases, a full photographic inventory will be provided. 
You may be asked to provide a guarantor in some cases. 
*Primary applicant 
Applications by 2 or more parties will be asked to name a Primary Applicant who will then become our first (but not necessarily only) point of contact for matters relating to the tenancy. We also reserve the right to repay the whole deposit to the Primary Applicant at the end of the tenancy.
