Here is a brief summary of what happens if you would like to apply for a property to let in Lincoln (please be aware some application processes may differ from what is outlined below this is dependent on each persons circumstances).
Viewing The Property
Before you can apply for any of our properties you must have physically been to see it with one of our negotiators. There are several ways you can book to view a property;
- Call the office on 01522 544999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a viewing
- Come and see us at the office located on Lincoln High Street
- Use the property portals (Rightmove, Zoopla, Belvoir) to send and enquiry
PLEASE BE AWARE - AS SOME OF OUR PROPERTIES WILL STILL BE TENANTED, WE DO HAVE TO ALLOW 48 HOURS NOTICE TO BE GIVEN TO THE TENANT PRIOR TO A VIEWING.
Firstly you will need to pay an application fee (please see fees page for a breakdown of costs). We will need you to pay this fee before we can start any of your referencing or consider you as an applicant. (Please be aware this fee may be non-refundable, you will need to contact us for more details on this).
All involved parties will need to fill out the correct application form/s. We insist that these are returned to us within a week of applying for the property.
All forms must be completed in full in order for us to proceed with the application.
We will require x1 proof of photographic ID and x2 proofs of current address for all parties involved in the application. We will need these before we can move you into the property. A list of what we can accept for these proofs of identification is available at our office.
We usually carry out 3 references (dependant on each individuals circumstances). These are;
- credit check
- employer’s reference
- a last landlord reference
We will contact you when we have requested for these references to confirm we have started the application process.
Once we have received satisfactory references, we will contact you to arrange a move in date and time that is convenient for you. You will come to our office to pay your rent and deposit, as well as sign your tenancy agreement, and collect the keys!
