Our staff are specially equipped to assist Tenants to find properties to rent that will meet their needs. We maintain a database of properties available to rent and of prospective Tenants and their requirements. As properties become available, our first action is to contact waiting Tenants on the database, who’s requirements match the property.
Having viewed the property, you will need to complete a written application form and provide us with the following documents:
- Passport – we will need to copy the original – this does not need to be in date (if you do not have a passport, please contact us to confirm alternative documentation that we require to satisfy the ‘Right To Rent’ checks)
- Last 3 bank or building society statements
- Proof of Address (e.g. utility bill, council tax – must be dated within last 3 months
There will be an application fee at the time of applying for the property. This application fee covers all referencing including credit check, employers reference, previous landlords reference and guarantors referencing if required. The application fees covers the cost of preparing the initial Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, preparing an inventory, lodging the damage deposit with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) and completing the "check-in" procedure. We at Parsons & Co do not agree with hidden charges, therefore our application fees are:
- £180.00 inclusive of VAT (£150 plus VAT) per applicant over the age of 18
Providing all references are acceptable then the first month's rent plus the damage deposit are required before moving into the property. Our damage deposit is equivalent to one and a half months rent, however, if pets are permitted then we do reserve the right to charge two times the rent.
The application fee will not be refunded if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if the tenancy fails to proceed due to incomplete or inaccurate information provided in the tenancy application.
