Reserving a property


Once you have viewed a property and wish to apply to rent it you will need to fill out an application form. You can obtain an application form from our Lettings adviser at the viewing or alternatively it can be downloaded from our website. You will need to pay fees to secure the property whilst your application is confirmed by the landlord. Matthew James Property Services Fees are as follows; Referencing fees – £150 per adult, Tenancy Administration fee – £100 per property. If you are applying on behalf of a company the fees are;  Referencing £250 + VAT and £150 + VAT Administration fee. **Please be advised that these fees are non refundable.

Applying to rent a property


The application form requests information regarding a tenants financial status. You will be asked to backup the information you provide by supplying copies of your bank statements, payslips and proof of ID. On the application form there is a section where you can make any requests or questions. This forms part of the negotiation period with the landlord and you will be updated as to what has been confirmed by the landlord and what hasn’t. This negotiation will take place before the referencing process starts. Once references are complete and all paperwork has been received an appointment will be made to sign the tenancy agreement and pay remaining funds such as rent up front and deposit.
