Letting Process In Didcot And Wallingford - James Gesner Estate Agents

The Rental Process

After you have found a rental property, the application process needs to take place, we have tried to break it down into the following steps, full details can be found in the “Application for Tenancy and Guidance Notes for Tenants” document:

Application Form

We will ask you to read our Guidance Notes, which is a comprehensive guide to letting a property, and then you will need to complete our Tenancy Application form and pay the *Tenancy Application Administration Charge.

Referencing

On receipt of your Application Form and Admin Charge, we will forward your details to our Referencing Company, Van Mildert who will email you a link to their website to complete the referencing application. They will require your current and previous addresses, along with contact details for your employer (to confirm your income) and your current Landlord if applicable. The referencing usually takes 2-3 days. Full details of the criteria can be found in our Guidance Notes for Tenants. Should your referencing be unsuccessful due to a shortfall in income, it may be possible for someone to act as a Guarantor. Anyone acting as a Guarantor will need to add their details to the Application form, and pay the *Guarantor Application Fee

In the event that you fail referencing, and your proposed Tenancy does not go ahead, your application fee is non-refundable.

Tenancy Agreement

On completion of successful referencing, we will draw up the Tenancy agreement for you to read, sign and return to us. Any special clauses agreed will be included. Once signed and dated by both parties, the Tenancy Agreement is legally binding.

Initial Payment & Deposit

Your deposit is one and a half month’s rent, and will usually be held by Gesners Property Management Ltd as Stakeholder. The Deposit will be registered and protected by the TDS, full details can be found as follows www.tenancydepositscheme.com. Your Deposit, first month’s rent and *TDS fee will be due 3 working days before your Tenancy Starts.

Inventory & Check in

The Inventory will list the property, along with all of its contents, and the condition and cleanliness. An Inventory Clerk will meet you at the property on the first day of your Tenancy to go through the inventory, and hand the keys over. The Landlord meets the cost of the check in. At the end of the Tenancy, you will be “checked out” against the inventory which will determine any deductions that your Landlord may propose. You will be responsible for paying the *Check out Fee

Rent Payments

Your rent must be paid by Standing Order, and will be due on the same date every month, determined by the start date of your Tenancy. So for example, if you move in on 10th of the month, your rent will always be due on the 10th of the month. Any payments received more than 3 days late will be subject to a *Late Payment Administration Charge.

Property Management & Maintenance

We will notify you when you start your Tenancy who to contact with maintenance issues or problems. This will be either Gesners Property Management, or your Landlord.
