As Agents we require

  • 2 forms of Photographic Identification (passport, driving licence)
  • Utility Bills issued in the last 3 months
  • Evidence of the right to rent in the UK e.g. Passport or a Biometric Residence Permit

Deposit Protection

The tenants deposit for the property must be placed in a Government approved tenancy deposit protection scheme for any Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) commencing on or after 6 April 2007 (in England and Wales).

  • A typical deposit will be 4 or 6 weeks rent.
  • It must be registered with a tenancy deposit protection scheme with 14 days.
  • We do not hold the deposit monies and use the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) for deposit protection.
