We update the Belvoir! Colchester website every day.
We also contact any prospective tenants in our databse whose requirements match the property. To register your requirements please call us, or complete this form.
If we hold the keys, viewings can usually be arranged at short notice, including early evenings or on Saturday. Otherwise we will liaise with the landlord or existing tenant to find a convenient time. If you see a property which interests you please call us immediately as some properties go very quickly.
Having selected a property, you will need to complete a written Tenancy Application Form and offer to rent. At this time any details or requirements can be agreed, including occupancy date, duration of the letting, etc.
BELVOIR! will take references on behalf of the landlord. Normally, this will include your employer, any former landlord and a character reference. In addition, a search of the adverse credit register and a search of the electoral roll register will be carried out.
In some circumstances where a person feels they may not pass the references for reasons such as adverse credit history, a guarantor can be used, or the rent may be paid in advance. Always ask us if you are worried, as there is usually a way around such situations, and it's easiest if mentioned at the start.
Rents are normally quoted on a calendar monthly basis. Rents are paid, monthly in advance, by standing order to the Belvoir Client account. The first months rent is normally paid, in cleared funds, on the day that you sign the tenancy agreement.
A deposit is taken to cover any breakages, dilapidations or deductions due. The deposit is usually held by the Deposit Protection Service in a secure client account until the end of the tenancy, and is returned at the end of the tenancy provided there are no damages etc.
