How do I make an application?
Once you have selected your ideal property, we’ll need you to complete your Tenancy Agreement. Simply arrange a meeting with one of our agents who will happily arrange your tenancy agreement for you. Unlike most letting agencies, Frittons is Fee Free and will not charge you anything for to use our services. The application form consists of three sections:
- Guidelines – Tenancy Application and Required Documents
- Application Form – Personal Information, Employment History and more
- Reference* – Pay a tenancy application fee which includes credit referencing charges.
If you have a bad credit history, you will need a guarantor, who will also need to undergo the reference checks.
Our credit search agency will provide us with your electoral roll registration, bankruptcy, tenant score, previous or current letting agent or landlord report. The information supplied to us by the credit search agency will be used to trace tenants who vacate leaving property damage or in rent arrears.
Moving into your new home
The process of moving into your new home is easy and straight forward once your application has been successfully referenced. Our agents will contact you to confirm your move in date, payments due including rent and deposit- which you will be required to bring with you on the day you sign your tenancy agreement. A copy of your tenancy agreement will be provided to both parties including the guarantor along with the guarantor agreement (if applicable) who will also need to be present.
Before you sign your agreement, we will go through all important elements with you on the day to ensure that you understand your rights and responsibilities as a tenant/ Once confirmed and accepted, all parties named on the agreement must sign the agreement, photographs and inventory sheets. You will also be requested to complete a standing order form your ongoing payment of rent.
If you are receiving housing benefit, we will require proof that housing benefit is to be paid directly to ourselves or if paid direct to you, you will be required to make arrangements to pay your rent via standing order.
For any private rental property, you will be entitled to certain rights and responsibilities and once you sign the tenancy agreement you are making a legal commitment to adhere to the terms and conditions set out in the tenancy agreement. Therefore, it is imperative that on the day you arrange to sign your agreement, you read it carefully and ask any questions before you sign.
Moving Out Process
After receiving your moving out notice by post, our team will write back to confirm and acknowledge receipt and provide you with move out date, we can also request provide final rent statement of account. We will arrange a final inspection and check inventory and photographs taken on the day you leave. On collection of the keys we will require to provide a forwarding address and contact details in order to send written notification to utilities companies and local authorities on your behalf.
If we are satisfied by the ‘fair wear and tear’ condition of the property we will agree to the DPS in releasing your deposit to your nominated account. If damage or non-payment of rent is evident we will make an application to have the deposit sent to the landlord.
