Tenant Protection

Belvoir Burnley is a member of Safeagent which is a client money protection scheme, and also a member of The Property Ombudsman, which is a redress scheme. You can find out more details on our website or by contacting us directly.

All residential lettings are Assured Shorthold Tenancies for an initial fixed term. This is a binding contract and once the tenancy documentation is signed, the tenant is bound to pay rent for the full term whether or not the property is occupied. The tenant cannot give notice of intention to leave the property earlier than the last day of the fixed term.ALL notice periods are to correspond with anniversary dates, i.e. 1 months written notice to expire the day prior to next rent due date.

Applicants should not assume that a tenancy has automatically been granted as soon as the application form is submitted. The decision as to whether or not a tenancy is granted is made by or on behalf of the landlord only once we are in receipt and have considered all references.
