Guide for Tenants

Finding a property

Blackpool and Fylde

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months.

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

Applying for the property

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to make an application for it either by completing our online form (see Apply online - above) or by completing a paper application and submitting to our office. There is an application fee of 50.00 per adult occupant plus a fee of 25.00 for the guarantor (where applicable). Applications normally take 5 to 7 working days to process. if you are approved for the tenancy then we will require you to pay either a non-refundable holding deposit, or more usually, pay the full deposit (bond) and sign a binding tenancy agreement. One of these options must be carried out within 48 hours of your tenancy being approved. We will not refund your application fees if your application is not approved, however you may apply for any of our other properties on the same application within 3 months without having to pay any additional application fees.

References

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition, a credit check will be undertaken. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

Rents

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental must be paid, and will be held in an approved Tenancy Deposit Protection scheme throughout the tenancy term. This is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.

Fees

We charge 50.00 per applicant to cover administration and referencing costs.
