FEES TO TENANTS 2019

Referencing and Right to Rent Checks

You will be asked to complete an application before referencing can be undertaken, you should also provide the following:

· Original photographic Identification (e.g. passport, National ID card, VISA, resident permit, driving licence)

· Proof of Residence (e.g. original utility bill, council tax bill or bank statement all of which much be less than 3 months old)

Do I need a Guarantor?

You should be aware that the need for a guarantor may not become apparent until your referencing (including references for any joint tenants) has been completed. Where a guarantor is required they will need to complete an application form and provide photographic identification and proof of residence.

What sort of checks does referencing cover?

Referencing will cover a check against the credit file and public records of the individual, an Anti-Money Laundering check, confirmation of employment and salary details, confirmation of previous tenancy details, right to rent checks, reporting the results of all those checks to your prospective landlord to see if your application is acceptable.

How much Deposit will I need to provide?

From 1st June 2019 landlords in England are limited to the equivalent of 5 weeks rent for new and renewed tenancies (or 6 weeks if the annual rent is £50,000 or more). This is calculated by dividing the annual rent by 52 and multiplying by 5 (or 6 if rent is £50,000 or more) and will be required to be paid at the start of the tenancy. This is subject to referencing.
