Tenants – Application Process

Here is a brief summary of what happens if you would like to apply for a property to let in Macclesfield or surrounding area,  (please be aware some application processes may differ from what is outlined below this is dependant 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 01625 410950 or email macclesfield@belvoir.co.uk to book a viewing
  • Come and see us at the office located on 120-122 Mill Street, Macclesfield
  • Use the property portals (Rightmove, OnTheMarket, Belvoir) to send and enquiry

PLEASE BE AWARE AS SOME OF OUR PROPERTIES WILL STILL BE TENANTED SO WE DO HAVE TO ALLOW 24 HOURS NOTICE TO BE GIVEN TO THE TENANT PRIOR TO A VIEWING.  

Application Fees

Firstly you will need to pay an Inventory Fee (please click here 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).

Application Forms/Paperwork

All involved parties will need to fill out the correct application form/s. We insist that these are returned to us within 72 Hours 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 within 48 hours of paying your Inventory fee. A list of what we can accept for these proofs of identification is available at our office.

References

We usually carry out 3 references (dependant on each individuals circumstances). These are; credit check, employer’s reference and a last landlord reference. We will contact you when we have requested for these references to confirm we have started the application process.

Move In

Once we have received satisfactory references, we will contact you to confirm a time to sign all the paperwork 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! (If you are paying your Rent & Deposit by Card we ask for this to be paid 4 working days before you sign the agreement)
