Reserve a property
If you like the property and wish to make an application we will then give you all the paperwork you require. To reserve a property we require the completed paper work and a one off holding fee (see lettings information below) from each tenant, we will remove the property from advertising and start the referencing process. Please read our letting guide and draft tenancy agreement prior to submitting your application.
Upon receiving both tenant and guarantor application forms these will be sent to an independent referencing agency and specified referees will be contacted undertaking a credit check, the results of which will be sent to the landlord for their approval. Upon satisfactory references and guarantors we will make an appointment for signing the Tenancy Agreement.
Tenancy paper work
A Tenancy agreement will be drawn up, detailing what agreements between the tenant and the landlord, and what is required of each party. These will then be signed by both parties and copies will be distributed. An inventory of the contents and condition of the property is usually produced on the move in day and at the start of the tenancy. This will be supplied to both landlord and tenant. You should look through the contents carefully to ensure that you agree with the state and condition of the property.
Initial rent and deposit balances must be received prior to the tenancy and the signing of documents. At check in appointment, which will last about an one hour we will read through our terms and conditions and the tenancy agreement to make sure you understand how your tenancy will work and how we work. We will either make an appointment to meet you at the property to hand over your keys on the day your Tenancy Agreement starts or arrange a time for you to collect them from your agent.
The rent for each property is either shown as a total amount per Calendar month or a weekly price, My Student Let has calculated the price per week for comparison purposes only. The method we use for calculating the weekly price is: (monthly price x 12) / 52, rounded to the nearest pound.
