You will have an idea on your basic requirements: price, location, size and type of property etc. Make sure to work out your monthly expenditure. Remember, there are more than 4 weeks in a calendar month i.e. £200 per week x 52 weeks, divided by 12 = £866.67 per calendar month. You will also be responsible for paying Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electric, Telephone and Broadband.
Our staff will listen to your requirements, which will give them a clear understanding of what you are looking for to avoid wasted trips to unsuitable properties. We can offer accompanied viewings to suit you, whether this is during the day, in your lunch break or on a Saturday.
Securing your property
Once you have identified the property you would like to rent we will submit your offer to the Landlord for consideration. A Tenancy application cannot proceed without a reservation fee, photo ID and proof of address. We will require a reservation fee (capped at 1 weeks rent). Once the reservation fee is taken then the marketing of the property will be suspended whilst references are carried out. Should you withdraw from the application or if your application is unsuccessful due to false information the reservation fee will not be refunded. If you fail our referencing tests and enquiries, the reservation fee will be refunded.

Referencing & fees
Each prospective tenant (over the age of 18 years) is vetted through Legal 4 Landlords: an independent referencing agency. Each tenant intending to live in the property must therefore complete a Legal 4 Landlords reference application form. This application form asks for personal information and is used to conduct a Credit Assessment. Before an application can proceed we also require a minimum of two forms of identification for each applicant:
*Photo ID such as valid passport or EU driving licence
*Proof of address such as a utility bill, bank statement or Council Tax statement (no older than 3 months)
Additionally, we ask you to provide copies of work permits and resident visas where appropriate. The reference/credit checks usually take 4-5 working days to be completed, but this timescale can vary. Our staff can email you the forms to complete and return or you can complete this process online on the Legal 4 Landlords website.
Signing tenancy agreements
Once the references have been satisfactorily completed and approved by the Landlord, we will arrange for you to sign the Tenancy Agreements. This is usually on or before the commencement date of the tenancy. The Tenancy Agreement governs all rents, which is a legal and binding document. You will be committed to paying rent until the end of the agreed term and you could be liable to legal action if you break the terms of the agreement. If your circumstances should change for any reason during your tenancy, it is a good idea to tell your Landlord or Real Estates as soon as possible.
Before your tenancy begins, you will be required to pay the initial rental payment and deposit. Any money payable to Real Estates must be paid in cleared funds (we cannot accept personal cheques). Usually the easiest and quickest method of payment is via CHAPS/BACS online payment.
When the paperwork has been completed and the deposit and initial rental payment has been paid, we will arrange to hand over the keys to your new home. Where possible, an independent inventory company is used at the beginning and end of our tenancies. A check-in is often carried out prior to you moving in to a property and again when you move out. The inventory is to record details of the condition of the property and fixtures, fittings and furnishings. The inventory is paid for by the Landlord.

Following our recent purchase, through the professional assistance of Jordan Silver, I would like you to know how very happy we were with the support your senior sales negotiator provided to us.
Thank you so much for managing our sale. You not only exceeded the price I thought we would obtain but obtained it extremely quickly! I also wanted to express on a personal level how much I have appreciated the way that Tracey has looked after us. Her proactivity and level of care has been second-to-none and I am just unable to praise her enough for the exceptional way she has driven the sale through. I was always confident that you were the right agents to represent the property but the way that Tracey has looked after everything has far surpassed that expectation.
I just wanted to write to say thank you. I cannot begin to tell you how overjoyed and delighted we are. We have somehow, and against so many odds, been gifted with the most beautiful house, on such a lovely road, with the brook at the bottom of our garden. The last few weeks have been completely agonising, and perhaps one of the most emotional times of my life. The faith you put in us, to stick with us, to provide the support and reassurance, and to get us over the line is something I genuinely will never forget.
Dear Casey, my husband and I would like to thank you for your kindness and your efficiency. We highly recommend you for your professionalism. We wish you the most successful pursuit in your career with Real Estates, which you have indeed represented very well.
It’s a big relief to get the exchange done and dusted. We have bought and sold a fair number of flats and houses over the years and I’d like to say that I have never worked with an agent as efficient, canny, courteous and smart as you. I doubt this would have happened without your dogged persistence and we’re both very grateful to you.
I’m well aware of the efforts you and your team made not only to obtain a sale, but to assist me with a tricky situation. Lock down. Distance. Disrepair. A mess. Clearance.
Your friendly, supportive, professional service knew no bounds. I’m only too well aware that you went way beyond the call of duty. Words are inadequate to express my gratitude to you, Casey and Tracey. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you as part of our lives, albeit temporarily.
Dear Jordan, I really appreciate everything you have done for us over the period of selling our house. You are the best Agent of all! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Tracey, thank you so much for your help, you really are a fantastic agent and we have recommended you to our friends who are looking in the Woodside Park/Totteridge area.
