Let us know who you are and what you are looking for e.g. 7 bedrooms, 6 bathroom, stucco-fronted exterior, no more than a ¼ mile from Hampstead Central….you get the idea.
Keep us on speed dial (actually hold the idea for a second) as we will be sending you a list of matching properties and pick the ones that tickle your fancy.
The next step involves one of our very affable property consultants accompanying you to viewings and showing you how to work the extractor fan in the kitchen. Quite easy this renting business, isn’t it?
Now that you have plumped for the property that most appealed to you...you know, the one with the underground swimming pool...it is time to make an offer which includes your specific criteria such as furniture requirements (that leopard print carpet needs to go), move-in date etc. and then you will need to place a two-week holding deposit to secure the property whilst we work through the referencing.
At this point, we will ask you several pieces of documentation including proof of ID, proof of address, last 3 payslips (accountant’s letter if self-employed), last 3 months’ banks statements and a landlord reference. No pressure then.
Once all of your references check out, you will then proceed to pay the balance of the move-in monies (six weeks security deposit + one month’s rent upfront + agency fees - holding deposit) and then you will be asked to sign the contract committing you to the set term (a Prescribed Information form will also be attached detailing the terms of the security deposit and that it will be registered with a government-approved deposit protection scheme).
Congratulations - you are almost there! All that is left now is for an inventory of the contents/conditions of the flat to be conducted by an inventory clerk right before you move in and then you can pick up the keys and be checked in. That wasn’t so difficult now, was it?
