Our Rental Services for Tenants

When a suitable property to rent has been found, we will draw up a rental agreement for you and the Landlord. For this we will require a photocopy of your passport if you are a foreign national. If the commencement date is not immediate, then a payment to indicate your commitment (which serves as a booking deposit) is usually requested.

Security Deposit

Before your tenancy commences you will be required to pay a security deposit, which is normally equivalent to it is only 1 month rent, it depends largely upon the disposition of the Landlord and the rental property itself so its best to ask the question when viewing the properties. The deposit is held against any damages or expenses arising during your tenancy and will not be released until after you vacate the property, all rent has been paid up to date, utility bills paid and we have written confirmation of any costs for damages from both parties. No interest is payable to either party.

Inventory and Schedule of Condition

An Inventory and/or Schedule of Condition of the property, its contents, furniture, fittings and effects will be prepared. This will be checked and agreed with you at the commencement of your tenancy. It is important that you take care in agreeing the Inventory and Schedule of Condition at this stage as it will form the basis of any claim for damages, by your landlord, at the end of the tenancy. At the end of tenancy the Inventory and Schedule of Condition will be checked again. In your own interests we strongly recommend that you are present at both the check-in and check-out.

Rental Payments

All rent is payable in advance, usually directly to the Landlord, or if otherwise agreed to the agent. Should you experience any financial problems during the course of the tenancy it is essential that you contact either the Landlord or us immediately so that we can assist you.

Tenant's Obligations

You should be aware that responsibility for the property rests with the tenant during any tenancy. It is particularly important that any utility problems (electric, water etc) are reported immediately and the property is fully secured when you leave it unattended at any time.

During your tenancy, you will be required to deal with smaller items at your own cost, such as light bulbs etc but any problems that arise with other larger items fixtures, or appliances such as TV, Kitchen appliances etc, then you should bring to the Landlord's attention.


The tenant is usually responsible for the payment of utility bills such as electric and water. This is extended to include, where necessary, utilities such as Internet, Satellite/Cable TV subscriptions.

In instances where you are renting a property long term (typically 6 months or more) and you require land-line ADSL internet or telephone utility, then you are most probably required to obtain any such service in your own name.
