 A Guide for Tenants

We let and manage furnished and unfurnished flats and houses in the north midlands, South Yorkshire and Gainsborough in Lincolnshire. Please click on 'View all Properties' above to view a list of available properties, although our stock changes daily and you should contact us for current availability or to register your requirements. Please note that for your safety and peace of mind - 

  • All of our managed properties are GAS SAFE certificated, and inspected for electrical safety, and furniture fire safety 
  • All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with The Housing (Tenancy Deposit Schemes) Order 2007 

Finding a property

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 properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of six months.


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.

Reserving the property

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposit', usually equivalent to one week's rent. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. However the deposit will be forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.


As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer, 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 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 client bank account.


A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is utilised. The deposit 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.


We charge £195 per property to cover administration and referencing costs. This fee is non-refundable.

 Insurance for Tenants

As appointed agents for a range of financial services companies we are able to offer a variety of insurance policies for both landlords and tenants.
