Tenancy Agreement

Tenancy Agreement and Inventory

You will be required to read and sign a Tenancy Agreement.  This is a legally binding document that sets out the terms of the tenancy and is used to make sure the rights and obligations of both tenant and landlord are adhered to.

The inventory is a detailed list of the property contents and condition at the point that you move into it.  We will send you a link to the inventory and it is important that you check, amend, and agree to it to reduce the risk of disputes when you move out.  Any changes to the property can then be easily identified and charged for where necessary, after fair wear and tear is taken into account.

Pay first months rent

Pay first month’s rent, security deposit (less holding fee)

Once the deposit and first months rent is paid and the Tenancy Agreement is fully signed then the property is secured for you.
