What do I need to do to rent a property?
As a tenant of ours you’ll be able to rely on us for any specific needs you may have whilst you’re with us. We’re going to walk you through the process of renting out a property with Alexanders to give you a quick overview of how the process works.
1. Register your Details
Sign up with us and tell us what you’re looking for.
2. Find a Property
There are a few things you need to consider before committing to a property such as location, bills and cost of the rent.
3. Fill in your Application
Once you’ve found a property you like, you’ll need to fill in an application form. You’ll need to provide us with a few details just to make sure we’ll be able to let the property to you such as your proof of income. We then put your application forward to the landlord.
4. Tenancy Agreement & Deposit
Once the application form has been filled in and we have the go ahead from the landlord, we then move on to paying your deposit (which is held by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme) and signing your tenancy agreement. This is the final stage before we move you in. An inventory will be completed prior to you moving in.
5. Moving Day
This is the day we’ll have been building towards, you’ll come into the office to collect the keys and we send you on your way to move into your new property!
We may carry out an inspection during your time with us, however we will give plenty of notice before we visit. You’ll receive an email or text with the date and time we’ll be coming round.
7. Renewal/Moving Out
You won’t believe how quickly the time will have flown (excuse the cliché) and if you’re enjoying living in the property and want to stay, we will be more than happy to have you extend your tenancy with us. If however you do find yourself leaving the property due to job commitments/looking to upsize/fancy a change or whatever, our move out process is very straightforward.
8. Last Bits
If you are going to be moving out, once you’ve cleaned the property and you’re ready to move out, swing by the office and drop off the keys with us. It’s that simple!
We hope this overview has cleared up any concerns you may have had with the renting process, if you do have any more questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.
