A step-by-step guide to renting property

1. Register your interest

The first step to finding the right property is to register with us by calling us on 0333 666 9888 or visiting our office where you can discuss your property requirements with one of our local agents.

2. Finding the right property

Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements you will receive a selection of properties that match your criteria. We can also keep you constantly up-to-date via email when the latest properties become available.

3. Consider a managed property

An increasing number of tenants insist on renting fully managed properties for complete peace of mind.

Renting a managed property has the benefit of a dedicated Property Manager to handle your day-to-day issues, a helpline with emergency contact details should a problem arise and the assurance that your property is fully compliant with all safety regulations.

4. The key to successful viewings

Viewings can be conducted Monday to Friday 9:30am-6:30pm and Saturday 9:30am-1:30pm

In order to secure a property we recommend an early viewing. We will chauffeur you to your viewings ensuring you arrive in a relaxed frame of mind and accompany you throughout so that we are on hand to answer any questions immediately and advise where necessary.

5. Making an offer

Once you have identified a suitable property you will be required to complete an application for tenancy where you may state any special conditions of the offer and provide details for your references. We will then communicate this offer to the landlord.

6. Offer agreed

If your offer is accepted we will organise the following regardless of whether your property is managed:

  • Collect references from the referees that you have provided
  • Collect your moving in payment (rent + deposit)
  • Collect your proof of ID and address
  • Arrange signing of the Tenancy Agreement

A deposit payment equivalent to 6 weeks rent must be paid in cleared funds when you sign the tenancy agreement. YW will register the deposit with a deposit protection scheme on landlord’s behalf.

7. Completion

Upon completion, you will be given a set of keys and if your property is managed we will provide you with your dedicated Property Manager’s contact details.

Congratulations, you can now move into your new home!
