Securing a Property

Once you have found a property that you wish to apply for, we will ask you to complete an application form and pay an administration fees. The fee will cover all the referencing, financial checks, tenancy paperwork and an inventory which are drawn up in relation to the property.

The agreement fee is £210, and the vetting fee is £40 per adult applicant (VAT inclusive). Should a guarantor be required a fee to process that person is £60.00 (includes VAT).  

In the event of more than one application on a property then the Landlord reserves the right to ‘”choose” which application to proceed with. In this instance the fee will be returned to the unsuccessful applicants. If however you decide to pull out from the proposed tenancy or your submitted information is false then you will forgo your fee.

Security Deposit and Rent

Security Deposits are payable on all properties and will be held by the Deposit Protection Service or The Dispute Service, unless otherwise stated (as in tenant find only properties or company lets). The security deposit is one and a half times the monthly rental value.  On the day you come in to sign the Tenancy Agreement (see below) your security deposit and first months rent will have to be paid by either Debit Card, Credit Card (3% fee applies), Bankers Draft or Cash. If you wish to pay by Personal Cheque then we will need to have received it 14 days in advance so as to have cleared funds in our account.  After the property has been let, rent is paid one calendar month in advance and will be deducted from your bank account via a Standing Order.

Tenancy Agreement

At the commencement of the tenancy you will be required to visit the Belvoir Shrewsbury office in Swan Hill to sign the tenancy agreement that outlines the Landlord and Tenants obligations. All Tenancy Agreements are “Assured Shorthold” tenancies under the provisions of the 1988 Housing Act, with a minimum six-month period. You will then receive the keys to your rental property.

Tenants Content Insurance

All tenants are advised to hold contents insurance. This is to protect you as tenant from theft of your personal possessions, and the fixtures and fittings of the property from accidental damage. A copy of current contents Insurance will need to be produced prior to the commencement of the tenancy, should you not have your own insurance we will be pleased to obtain a quote for you.
