Finding your perfect home is a hugely important decision, and knowing what your priorities are, could make things a little easier.
Things to seriously consider when looking for a home;
- Suitable Area
- How many bedrooms / bathrooms are required
- Down-stairs living space
- Your Budget
A general guide to referencing criteria:
- Three years address history
- Employment details
- Confirmation of earnings
- If self-employed evidence of the last three years’ account details
- Current landlord details
- Your bank account details
Be aware that if you fail any of the necessary checks, you may not be considered for the property. Guarantor referencing is also available.
Tenant Administration fee’s
Application to rent a property
All persons aged 18 years and over, who will occupy the property, must be named on the Tenancy Agreement.
Each Tenant will be assessed for their share of the total rent.
Where a joint tenant is not contributing to the rent, identity and credit checks are still required.
The administration fees are outlined below and include vat.
- Single occupancy – £180.00 including vat
- Double occupancy – £234.00 including vat
- Additional tenants – £36.00 including vat
- Guarantor – £60.00 including vat
These fees are for referencing and includes credit checks, current and previous residency and employment checks.
These fees are non-refundable should you decide to withdraw from the proposed tenancy, or if your references prove to be unsatisfactory
We must see original documentation in order to comply with Anti-money laundering regulations.
We will advise you on which documents are suitable for proof of identity, residency, and current address.
These documents are also required for guarantors.
Kingtons will also need to meet the guarantor in person. The guarantor must be a resident in the UK and be a UK homeowner.
If you have any adverse credit history or are concerned that your income maybe considered insufficient, please notify us at the outset, prior to reserving a property, as refunds cannot be issued in these circumstances once referencing has started.
