Tenants

We do charge an administration fee to cover the following checks and enquiries – this is a very modest sum compared to many other agents and is an ALL – IN fee of £175 per family. This includes VAT and covers our costs for the Tenancy Agreement, Inventory, Credit Checks, all references, check in and check out procedures.

The information we need before a tenancy

We will then ask you for various items of information and references, which can take up to two weeks to complete.

From all applicants our reference company will ask for:

  • two forms of identification, including photo I.d
  • reference from a previous landlord, or
  • if you have not rented previously recently, we will usually ask you for a guarantor
  • a credit check

If you are working we will ask for:

  • a reference from your employer

If you are in new employment, we may also ask for:

  • a guarantor or previous employment references

If you are self-employed we will:

  • ask to see your most recent business accounts or request an accountants reference
  • we may request a guarantor where there is no accounts history

If you are a student we will need

  • a letter from your college or uni to confirm you are a student there
  • a guarantor who guarantees the rent will be paid

Again this is only a general guide. Occasionally we vary these stipulations – either at our discretion, or at the request of the landlord or applicant – to ensure that a proper, but fair, check is made to verify the suitability of applicants for our landlords’ properties.

 

MEECHING ESTATE AGENTS ARE MEMBERS OF THE TENANCY DEPOSIT SCHEME AND PROPERTYMARK CLIENTS MONEY PROTECTION SCHEME.

The scheme protects Landlords and tenants money against misappropriation, fraud and bankruptcy. It does not cover disputes between the landlord and tenant over the return of deposits.
