Applying for a house
Once you have found a house or a flat that you like you will need to apply for a tenancy with us. This involves us doing various checks with your employer, previous landlord and credit reference agencies.
Simply download a form here or pick up an application form from our office. Fill out all the various boxes and pay the application fee. You are welcome to do this at our office where we can help you fill out the form.The more accurate and complete the form is the quicker it can be processed, we cannot hold a property until we have the form filled in and the fee has been paid.
Unlike some agents we will not allow anyone else to apply whilst your application is processed so you do not have to worry about losing the property you want. The best thing you can do is ensure everyone who you have as a reference sends the details back to us as soon as possible. Do not bring previously written references in as these are of no use to us.
If you have any queries during this process contact Laura@pclettings.com for private applications and firstname.lastname@example.org for any corporate/company applications. We can sometimes fast track your application but this can only be done in some circumstances and with the landlords consent.
As a tenant you have many rights under the law and therefore we have to be implicitly certain that you will pay the rent in full on time and look after the house, therefore the checks we do are necessary and important. Because our properties are of a higher standard than many agents our landlords do look specifically for responsible tenants.
Please note any personal information is held in the very strictest confidence and any material we no longer need, that you do not require will be shredded and disposed of (we use a specialist company for this) If you are declined for a property we will refund your application fee but not if you withdraw from the application of your own accord.
