Renting with Lintel Properties

Tenants – what you need to know

Whether you are renting for the first time or are a seasoned renter we have a few points that will help you along the way to ensure your tenancy runs smoothly and trouble free.

You can also get further guidance from the Government's 'How to Rent guide' which also included a checklists to help you with all aspects of renting a property.

Your first course of action will probably be best to register your interest with us – we will take a few details and inform you as soon as new and suitable properties come onto the market. Many rental properties are snapped up quickly so having regular communication with us will speed up your property search and get you that new home quicker!.

For your assurance we are ARLA Propertymark agents. The Association of Residential Letting Agents is the governing body of the lettings industry. As a member of this body we have a strict code of conduct and service level that we work to ensuring that all our dealings with you are by the book and that your best interests are looked after. It also means that you have additional protection in the unlikely event that you are not happy with our service, ARLA Propertymark would assist you in resolving any issues.

Once we have found the right property for you we will undertake all the necessary paperwork including references from your employer to verify that the property is affordable.

We also have an obligation to our landlords to do our best to ensure that all tenants pay their rent on time and don‘t damage their properties so we may also ask for personal references and undergo background checks. A poor credit rating or previous debt won’t automatically disqualify you from a particular property but we might, on behalf of our landlord, ask for suitable guarantors for the rent.

And finally your deposit which we will ask for prior to moving into the property and which will be held in the government backed Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS).

You will receive your full deposit back when you leave the property as long as it is in the same condition as when you moved in. There is obviously an expectation of normal wear and tear but you do have some obligations to the landlord about looking after the property during you tenancy and again full details can be found in the how to rent guide.

As always though we are here to help you every step of the way so any questions please just ask.
