When you have found a property through SEARLES and your request to rent the property has been accepted by the Landlord, you will be required to fill in a Tenant Reference Form before things proceed. I will send you this by email as soon as I hear from you. Referencing costs are £45 per personal application or £60 for a company application provided that everything is transmitted by email.

Assuming the references are satisfactory, on their return to me I will contact you and let you know when to expect the Tenancy Agreement and initial invoice for the rent and deposit which is six weeks if you have no pets and eight weeks if you have pets. This deposit is held by SEARLES as stakeholder and is registered within 14 days of the start of the tenancy with the Tenants Deposit Scheme. You can download the TDS brochure here.

The principle idea at SEARLES is to make the whole business of house hunting quick and efficient and eventually renting a house through SEARLES a hassle-free experience.
