To secure a property, after viewing, each adult who will be living at the property must complete an Application Form, with proof of ID with photo(Passport, Driving Licence etc), 2 x proofs of current address (Utility/Bank letter etc), plus Holding Deposit. At this time any details or requirements can be agreed, including occupancy date, duration of the letting, etc.
Tenancy Application Fees
There are no Tenancy Application Fees, with our agency.
Property Holding Deposit
When you decide to apply for a proeprty with Belvoir Ipswich, we provide you with an Application Form, one for each adult who will be living at the property.
This must be completed and returned to the office. Each adult would need to be present at the office to apply (to carry out Identity checks).
At this point we ask for a Holding Deposit, which is equal to one weeks rent (so dependant on the rental value). Once the referencing is complete, this holding deposit is deducted from the 1st months rent required.
We will take references on behalf of the landlord. Normally, these will include your employer, credit history, former landlord, adverse credit register and search of electoral roll register.
At the move in appointment the tenant pays the first month’s rent and deposit.
Rents are quoted on a calendar monthly basis. Rents are paid monthly, in advance, by standing order. The first month’s rent is paid in cleared funds on the day that you sign the tenancy agreement. We always ask for at least an additional month’s deposit as security against dilapidations.
A deposit equivalent to one month’s rent is taken to cover any breakages, dilapidations or deductions due. The deposit is usually held by Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS) until the end of the tenancy, and is returned within 14 days of the tenancy ending provided there are no damages etc.
We visit your property every four months to ensure that it is being properly cared for and a report is then sent to the landlord. The first visit is booked after the first month, and then on a four monthly basis thereafter.
Most home insurance policies do not provide adequate cover for damage to landlord’s contents, which could result in loss of deposit or more. Our special policy removes this worry and provides all the cover you would expect from a high quality contents policy along with extra protection and as the largest specialist lettings agent in the UK, Belvoir has negotiated excellent rates.
