Apply to Rent a House
If you are looking for a rental or have seen one on our website that you are interested in you should first register online (or at the office). Give as much detail as possible – details of past tenancies with landlord details, employment background including your partner’s employment, and your requirements of the rental property. Once this has been received you should get an acknowledgement within a few days. You may be asked to come into the office for an interview or simply to talk through the options we may be able to offer you. Office hours are 8.30 – 12.30.
Check any prospective rentals from the road – do NOT go onto the property! Then register your interest with us. Do realise that whether your application is successful or not depends on your references as well as a whole range of other factors including age, employment background etc. The more detail you can give to back up your application the more chance you have of being successful, just like a job interview.
