If you decide to rent one of our residential properties you will be offered an assured shorthold tenancy, known as an AST. These are usually for a term of 24 months with a 12 month break clause - and can then be renewed if both parties are happy.
All occupants paying rent will be named on the tenancy, and all named tenants are jointly and severally liable. This means that if you are sharing and one of you decides to leave, the tenancy is brought to a close. Remaining tenants, should they wish to stay, may re-apply but must find a replacement tenant. A new tenancy will be created, but on the same terms as the original.
You will be referenced by our independent referencing company, FCC Paragon. In the event that we require a guarantor, there will be an additional admin charge of £20.
Deposits are held in one of two Government-approved schemes - the Deposit Protection Service or myDeposits in accordance with their Terms & Conditions.
