Tenants Guide to Renting with Leighton Snow

Here at Leighton Snow our aim is to help you rent your ideal home with ease.

We pride ourselves on being able to match you with your ideal property and make the process of applying as stress free as possible.

WHAT YOU NEED

In order to rent a property, you will need the following documents:

  • ID – you will need a UK passport or driving licence and birth certificate (other forms are accepted but these are the most common) where you do not a hold a UK passport you will also be required to provide a right to Rent document i.e. Visa and a share code.
  • Proof of current address - this need to be a bank statement or utility bill dated in the last 3 months.

 

AFFORDABILITY

Affordability is worked out for working applicants at 30 x the monthly rent for example where a rent is £700per month then your annual income would need to be £21,000.

Where benefits are your main income, you will also be required to provide a Guarantor.

GUARANTORS

Where a guarantor is required, the guarantor will also need to be in receipt of an annual income that is 30 x the monthly rent. They are not required to be a homeowner, but they are required to have a good clean credit history.

Guarantor will be required to sign a deed of guarantee and will remain the guarantor on the tenancy for the full duration and until the tenancy ends and the tenant moves out.

PAYMENTS

A holding fee will be taken on application the equivalent of 1 week’s rent, this will be credited off the first month’s rent as per the terms which are outlined in the application documents.

On the day of move in you will be required to pay the required deposit equivalent to 5 weeks Rent and the first month’s rent minus the holding fee.

Payments are accepted by Credit or Debit card only on the initial payments.

Leighton Snow will always do our best to ensure you and the property are the best fit for each other and aid you in whatever way we can, so you feel that the house becomes your Home.
