Tenants Guide:

Register with us

For us to identify properties suited to you, we will ask you detailed questions. The more information you can give us, the easier it is for us to match you with right property.

View with us

Your agent will take you around. We are here to answer your questions. Unsure of the area? We can advise you on the local amenities, schools and transport links. Second viewings are welcome however, considering demand, properties will not always be available. To avoid disappointment, we recommend all applicants within your moving party view together.

Make an offer

When you see the property you like, we advise you make an offer immediately. A reservation fee will be payable as well as a reference fee for each tenant and guarantor if applicable. These fees are non-returnable if:

  • You withdraw from the offer or
  • References have commenced

If your offer has been accepted, Nicholas Ashley will carry out the necessary credit checks and references for each tenant and guarantor (if required). Upon successful completion of references Nicholas Ashley will prepare the tenancy agreement for signature.

Signing of paperwork

Before you can move in, a deed of guarantee signed by the guarantor (if applicable) & paid the initial monies (first month’s rent, security deposit, administration fees). We will register your deposit with the Deposit Protection Service and issue you with the Prescribed Information Certificate.

Before you move in

Inform the utility companies and council that you are now responsible for the bills. It is a good idea to insure your own possessions.

Congratulations on your new home, time to relax and enjoy.
