Tenants - Renting a Property

TENANTS – Renting a property. Once we have found you a suitable property and agreed a move in date, the following steps will be taken to ensure that your move is as stress free as possible:

  • You will be asked to pay a small holding deposit which will allow us to remove the property from the market and reserve it specifically for you. (The holding deposit will be deducted from the main security deposit that you will be asked to pay just before move day).
  • A tenancy application form will need to be completed.
  • References sought will include bank, previous landlord (unless you are renting for the first time), current employer and a credit check. You will also be required to provide a Drivers License or Passport and proof of current address to confirm your identity.
  • Once references have been received, White and Hayward will draw up a STA (Shorthold Tenancy Agreement) for signing. You will then be asked to pay your first month’s rent, plus a security deposit (normally 1.5 months rent) less the holding deposit already paid. The security deposit will be returned to you at the end of the tenancy assuming that the property is left in the same condition as when you moved in, subject to normal wear and tear.
  • On occupation day we shall meet you at the property to hand over keys, go through the Inventory, take meter readings and answer any further questions you may have.

Our aim at White and Hayward is to provide a fast, efficient and friendly service. We will assist you in every aspect of your move and will always be on hand with any problems which might have.

We are accredited with NALS
