If you are new to renting Coles Group are here to help you every step of the way. The rental market is moving quickly so our advise is to make sure you have everything in place so that when you see a property you like you are ready to take it.

Once you have a found a property, you then need you to pay a referencing fee which is £300 inc VAT for 1 person over the age of 18 or £390.00 inc VAT for 2 people this fee is non refundable.

This reserves the property for you whilst we conduct our reference checks.  You will be required to fill out two brief forms, one will be sent in an email link and the other will be sent as a form you need to complete, we require you to fill this out with 48 hours otherwise you will loose your referencing fee and the property will go back on the market.

We also require from you; 3 Months Bank Statements (online print off is fine), your last payslips, a Form of Photo ID and a Utility Bill.

This whole process should take around a week, if the property you would like to rent is vacant this could be a quicker.  We shall then agree a moving in date with you and that date is when you will come to the office sign the contract and make the payment of the first month's rent and deposit. We will always require 1.5 months rent for the deposit.  Pet deposits are an additional 1/2 month's rent.  Once this has been received the keys are handed over and the property is yours.

Your tenancy agreement will initially be for 6 months and you will be invited to renew thereafter.  At renewal there is normally a choice 6 months, 12 months or a rolling monthly contract.  Longer tenancies can be agreed by negotiation.

If you have any additional enquiries please do not hesitate to contact our lettings team.
