Moving in.
What you need to know
Before we proceed to reference you, you will be asked to pay a holding deposit equivalent to one week’s rent. We will agree a date for move in, normally within 14 days of submission of the application. We ask you to electronically sign a Holding Fee Agreement which includes a copy of our standard tenancy agreement and outlines the details of the deposit and rent.

Please see the Tenant Fees Guide for more detail on the charges.

Signing the Agreement
On completion of the paperwork you will be asked to electronically sign a Tenancy Agreement. The first month's rent (this will be a full month from the move in date) and property deposit which is equivalent to 5 weeks rent is payable in advance.

We will prepare the inventory a couple of days before you move in, at which point we endeavour to take a note of meter readings. We inform a utility switch company of your move in date, they should make contact but if you do not hear please contact the companies noted on your inventory to set up an account. You will need to let the local council know you have moved in.

Repairs and Day to Day enquiries
You will be advised if we are managing the property or if the property is managed via the landlord. If we are managing, please report any repairs via the PropertyFile login which you should have received from us. Alternatively you can email us at In an emergency, details of our out of hours contacts are available on our office number 0115 945 5553.

Please see the Tenant Information Pack for more detail on any issues which may be relevant during your tenancy.
Moving out.
What you need to know
We hope you have been very happy in your home but if you are looking to leave we would ask that you contact us on If you are in a fixed term tenancy, the end date can be found on your contract. If your fixed term has expired you have rolled on to what is known as a 'periodic' tenancy. Assuming the rent was agreed to be paid monthly the notice period will be one month from the rent payment date.

Deposit Return
It is very important to clean thoroughly and hand back the property in the condition which compares to that at the commencement of the tenancy. We will carry out a check out report after you leave and report back to the landlord. Should any cleaning or deductions from the deposit be required i.e for bulb replacements or garden maintenance, we will discuss this with you in full before applying for a deduction via the relevant deposit scheme.

Mail forwarding

You should setup and pay the requisite fee to Royal Mail for letters, etc. to be redirected to you.

On your last day in occupation, please take gas, water and electricity meter readings and notify the utility companies. We will also need to know your meter readings. You should also notify your council of your departure to cease your responsibility for council tax. Note this cannot cease until the last day of the tenancy, regardless of whether you move out sooner.

Please ensure that you cancel the Standing Order with your Bank after your final payment has been made to us.
