Tenant Information

Taking a property

If you find a property with Tenant Link, 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 to ensure that you are a suitable tenant. We will ask for you to supply Tenant Link with a recent credit reference report whilst we carry out extensive references on you. On most occasions, we will ask for your current or previous landlord details and employment details who we will contact to complete satisfactory references.

Before we can enter into this process we ask for a holding deposit equivalent to one week’s rent. This ensures the property can not be let to someone else whilst we complete references.

You will be required to prove that you have the rights to rent in the UK and we request proof of this within 48 hours of paying the holding deposit. Please speak to a member of Tenant Link for more information.

Once all the terms have been agreed and references completed we will draft an assured shorthold tenancy agreement for a minimum of six or twelve months.

Finding a property
Our friendly and helpful staff will guide you through our letting lists and answer any questions you may have, so please call us or send us an email.

If you find a property on our list that you wish to view, please contact us and we will endeavour to 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 vehicles.

Some Common questions answered

When should I start looking for accommodation?
Working professionals and company lets should start looking for properties approximately six to eight weeks before their move in date.

What will I have to pay and when?
If you find a property you wish to let you will be required to pay a non refundable holding fee equivalent to one week’s rent. This will hold the property for 15 days whilst we perform extensive vetting on all applicants including guarantors. The deposit is five weeks rent which will be due when the contract is signed (subject to satisfactory references) on the 15th day after the holding fee is paid.
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 in the UK.

what are my responsibilities as a tenant?
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.

Who do I turn to if I have a problem?
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.

Guides on renting property in the Uk

The Right to Rent and How to Rent Guide are resources provided by the UK government to ensure that all prospective tenants in England are aware of their rights and responsibilities before renting a property.

The Right to Rent scheme requires landlords to check the immigration status of prospective tenants and ensure that they are legally allowed to rent in the UK. This is designed to prevent illegal immigrants from accessing the rental market.

The How to Rent Guide provides tenants with practical information on their responsibilities as tenants, such as paying rent on time, taking care of the property, and reporting maintenance issues to the landlord. It also outlines the steps involved in renting a property, such as signing a tenancy agreement and paying a deposit.

Overall, the Right to Rent and How to Rent Guide aim to promote a fair and transparent rental market in England and help both tenants and landlords understand their roles and responsibilities. For more information, please visit https://www.gov.uk/prove-right-to-rent
