Tenant Information

 

At Tenant Link we pride ourselves on helping tenants find the right place to live and call home.

Finding a property

Our staff will guide you through our letting lists and answer any question(s) you may have, so please call us or send us an email.

Viewings

If you find a property on our list that you wish to view, contact us and we will book a convenient time for you to visit the property. Our staff can meet you at the property or we can take you in one of our company viewing cars.

Taking a property

If you find a property with us we try our best to make the process as easy as possible for you. We do however have to collect and perform certain obligations for our landlords. We will do a credit reference and contact any referees that you supply us. Before we enter into this process we ask for a holding retainer equivalent to fifty percent of the rent on the property. This ensures the property can not be let to some one else. Once all the terms have been agreed and references completed we will draft an assured short hold tenancy agreement for a minimum of six months.

Everyone at Tenant Link was helpful and friendly I would certainly recommend them – Dr Evans,Southampton

 

Testimonials

 

When should i start looking for my property?What do i have to pay and when?What are my responsibilities as a tenantWho do i turn to if i have a problem
Working professionals and company lets should start looking for properties approximately one to two months before their move in date.t1
If you find a property you wish to let you will be required to pay £160.00+VAT (administration fees) per person and a £40.00 +VAT contract charge (per tenancy). The deposit is one months rent plus £100, unless the Landlord requires a slightly higher deposit which will be advised at the time of booking your appointment. Once you have decided on the property you would like to take a tenancy on, we require half a months rent to secure the property and remove the property from the market, the property will then be held until the move in date (subject to referencing), which is when the remaining balance will be due (deposit, contract fee, VAT) If the prospective tenant is on a low income or cannot satisfy all the relevant referencing criteria, we may require a parent or guardian to be guarantor for the rent, this person must be somebody who is in full employment and a homeowner,a fee of £50.00+VAT is payable for each guarantor.22
As a tenant, first and foremost, you will be expected to pay your rent on time. You will also be expected to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner throughout the tenancy and to adhere to the terms and conditions details within your tenancy agreement. You will be required to pay all the utility bills at the property including TV licence, Gas, Electric and Water.o-COUPLE-UNPACKING-BOXES-facebook
At Tenant Link we offer different services to Landlords. Some properties we manage and for these properties if there were any issues or maintenance requirements we would deal with them. For our let only serviced properties these issues and problems would be dealt with directly with the landlord. We will be able to confirm for you which service your property comes under.44
