TENANTS

Having found a suitable house or flat to rent, what happens next? You should begin by putting down a holding deposit in order to state your intention to rent the property and get the property off the market. The letting agent will then begin the administrative process of requesting references from you and a full deposit.

References

Your prospective new landlord will be keen to make sure that you are a suitable tenant and that you have the ability to pay your rent, while also making sure that you have rented a property without any major problems in the past (if this is applicable). If instructed, the letting agent will organise this, and at this point, they are likely to ask for the administration fee, along with your permission to conduct the relevant searches.

The deposit

The final event in your securing the property is the deposit. This is usually between one and two months’ rent and held for the duration of the tenancy. The deposit is a safety net for the landlord to guard against the cost of replacing or repairing property damaged by the renter. It is, however, the single most disputed area of the renting process.

Tenancy agreements

The tenancy agreement is a contract between you and the landlord. It specifies certain rights to both you and the landlord, such as your right to live in the home for the agreed term and your landlord’s right to receive rent for letting the property. Lucas Estate Agents Will Organise The Tenancy Agreement.
