Here is our seven-step process for helping you find the perfect rental home in Bishop’s Cleeve, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury.
Step 1 – Discover a property: Browse our online listings and find a property that captures your interest.
Step 2 – Express your interest: If you see a home you’re interested in, we’ll ask some questions, such as:
- Which property are you interested in?
- What is your income / affordability?
- What is your credit history like?
- Who will be the tenants (individual, couple, family or a group of friends)?
- When do you need to move in?
- How long do you intend to rent the property?
- Do you have pets?
- What is your immigration status? Do you have the Right to Rent (where applicable)?
- Can you provide references from work / previous landlords?
We’ll discuss your answers with the landlord to ensure compatibility before moving forward, ensuring everyone’s time is well spent.
Step 3 – Schedule a viewing: Due to the high demand for rental properties in our area, we hold dedicated Viewing Afternoons where prospective tenants who have passed our vetting process can see the property. This allows you to assess the living space and get a feel for what living there may be like.
Step 4 – Act promptly: Given the high demand for properties in Bishop’s Cleeve, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, it’s crucial to act quickly if you want the property. This is why we do a lot of work around pre-qualifying prospective tenants – it’s in your best interests to be as prepared as possible.
Since we’ve already pre-qualified you, we’ll inform the landlord of your intent to rent. Once they approve, you’ll pay a holding deposit, and we will begin the reference checks.
Step 5 – Finalise the details: If all checks are successful and the landlord approves, we’ll help you schedule a move-in date and complete the required paperwork.
Step 6 – Inventory time: We will carry out a move-in inventory prior to you moving in. This is a report on the condition of the property and protects both you and the landlord further down the line, especially if / when you’re ready to move out.
Step 7 – Welcome home: On your move-in day, we’ll provide the keys, guide you through essential information such as utilities, and ensure a smooth transition into your new home.
