It is wise to start looking as soon as possible before you wish to move to avoid disappointment, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly.

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a "holding deposit" and completing our tenancy application form.

We will then take the property off the market and commence referencing.

For referencing as a minimum we will require you to supply, your residential, employment, and credit status, also we may ask for a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor.

We will use the services of an online independent referencing company which may take up to 5 working days to complete all checks.

When we receive your references back and are satisfactory, you will then be able to proceed with the signing of the tenancy documents.

The first month's rent and tenancy deposit must be paid either by cash, banker's draft or cheque; the monies must be cleared before you can move in.

Your rent will be payable by monthly standing order or if agreed by us or the landlord, BACS from your account.

The last and exciting step is moving in where a representative of Hensons will meet you at your new home, they will go through the inventory and answer any questions you may have before signing.

If the property is not managed by us, the landlord will be responsible for organising the check-in with you. Utilities and council tax office will be contacted when you take up occupancy.
