Our quick reference guide to renting with Durrants

Tenancy applications

Having decided on the property you wish to rent you will be required to complete a reference/credit check form. A form is required for all occupants 18 years old and over plus any guarantors.

Preparation of Agreement

Once all references are approved we will prepare the Assured Shorthold Tenancy and send you a draft copy for your perusal.

Inventory and Schedule of Condition

With the draft agreement prepared we will undertake an inspection of the property and prepare a schedule of condition including photographs. You will be asked to go through this at the beginning of the tenancy and sign to confirm your acceptance of it.

Ready to Sign

Having agreed a date to start the tenancy Durrants will arrange a time to meet you, at this point you will need to do the following: – Pay the outstanding administrative charges of £180 inclusive of VAT (up to and including the value of £750 pcm) or £240 inclusive of VAT (for properties over the value of £750 pcm) for the preparation of the tenancy agreement and checking in/checking out fee. Pay the first month’s rent in advance. Provide proof of your standing order mandate. Pay the deposit (normally one and half times the monthly rent) Sign the Assured Shorthold Tenancy

Once the above has been completed, a set of Keys will be given at the check in and the property is yours!
