Tenancy Application FAQs

We would recommend as soon as possible as properties are generally letting very quickly at the moment. In some instances properties are letting on first viewing and therefore it is essential we are aware of your requirements

You will be asked to provide brief details about yourself and your rental requirements including any other prospective occupants (including children or pets) before a viewing to ensure that you potentially meet the landlord’s requirements. A member of staff will usually accompany you at the property and answer any questions that you may have.

Our usual office reception hours are Monday to Friday 9.30am to 5.00 pm. However, please check details and any seasonal arrangements. Saturday is available for prebooked viewing appointments or to make an application for tenancy only (There are no general or  tenancy administration staff available on Saturdays for appointments). Closed Sunday and Bank and Christmas holidays.

Prior appointments during our usual reception hours above are not necessary for generally discussing your property rental requirements or making an application. Subsequently, if you wish to discuss your application or current tenancy arrangements in detail at our office, it is essential that you make a prior appointment during our usual opening hours between Monday to Friday with a member of staff who will be able to provide further more detailed specialist information to answer your queries. Email correspondence should be used whenever possible to answer general queries in regard to your application or current tenancy arrangements.

We can usually arrange a viewing appointment to suit your availability Monday to Saturday flexibly around our opening hours.

We welcome applications from prospective tenants with pets for consideration. Please enquire about suitable properties and any other special arrangements necessary. Please note that not all properties will be suitable and others may have pet restrictions outside of our control. There is very helpful information which may be obtained from the Dogs Trust www.dogstrust.org.uk and www.letswithpets.org.uk  to prepare your pet for application. Please provide as much useful and positive information as you are able as pets will require the prior agreement of the landlord. Be prepared, If pets are agreed, additional rental may be required to cover excess wear and tear and any damage or cleaning required.

NO SMOKING is permitted under any circumstances unless you have the prior written agreement of the landlord ONLY

All properties (unless otherwise stated) are offered for a minimum term of six months. In some cases the landlord may require a minimum initial tenancy term of 12 months, please check advertised details for further information.

If you require a short term letting (less than 6 months) please contact us for availability before arranging a viewing. The marketing advertised rental is for a minimum of a 6 months let and therefore additional monthly rental will be required for short term lets in agreement with the landlord

Whilst we endeavour to make our Property Descriptions accurate and reliable, they should not be relied on as statements or representations of fact and do not constitute any part of an offer or contract.  We would strongly recommend that all the information which we provide about the property is verified by yourself on inspection.  The Agent has not tested any apparatus, equipment, fittings or services and so cannot verify they are in working order.   *A copy of the Energy Performance Certificate may be viewed, on request, at our offices.

In addition, property descriptions are provided only as a general outline in good faith and from information provided to us and no Employee, Partner, Owner  or Director The Letting People has any authority whatsoever to give or make representation or warranty in relation to the property

Please note that Holding Deposits are also subject to the Deadline for Agreement date agreed with you when taking a Holding Deposit.

If you are unable to fully meet satisfactory referencing criteria including your rental liabilities for the term of the agreement you may consider proposing a guarantor. Guarantors must be a UK resident. Please contact your branch to confirm guarantor requirements BEFORE booking a viewing or making an application for further information as the criteria for an acceptable guarantor is complex and may require our making additional enquires to proceed further. In addition, the prior approval of the landlord to process Guarantor referencing will be required.

Yes. You (and your guarantor) as part of the referencing process will be required to provide proof of identification and proof of residency at your current address which will include photographic identity documents. Overseas foreign nationals requiring a Visa will be required to submit their Visa documents and any and all Non UK resident nationals will be required to provide a copy of passport. If you do not meet the standard referencing criteria you will also be required to supply additional supporting information for further consideration. In addition, all applicants Right to Rent status will be checked for all tenancies beginning on or after 1/2/2016 as part of the referencing process which may require your submiting additional documents as required.

The Tenant Fees Act 2019 prescribes the permitted payments as follows:

Permitted Payments

Before the tenancy starts payable to the Agent, Coverworld Management Services Ltd, T/AS The Letting People:

Holding Deposit: 1 weeks rent payable on application

Tenancy Deposit: 5 Weeks rent

During the tenancy

Payment of £50 if you wish to change the terms of the tenancy agreement in agreement with your landlord.

Payment of interest for the late payment of rent at the rate of 3% above the Bank of England annual percentage rate for each day that the payment is outstanding.

Payment of the reasonable incurred costs to replace the loss of keys or security devices.

Payment of any unpaid rent or other reasonable costs incurred associated with your early termination of tenancy in agreement with your landlord.

  • Gas electric and water charges
  • Communications including telephone and broadband
  • Subscriptions including cable and satellite provider
  • Television license
  • Council tax

Other permitted payment

Any other permitted payments, not included above, under the relevant legislation including contractual damages

Equivalent of 5 weeks rent.  Where we collect a tenancy deposit as agent for the landlord as part of our Letting Services, the tenancy deposit will be transferred to the Deposit Protection Service (DPS). Alternatively, the landlord will make arrangements to collect the deposit directly from you before you start your tenancy.

There are no Agency Fees for tenancy applications after the 1/6/2019. However, permitted payments in accordance with the Tenant Fees Act 2019 may be required by your landlord. In addition, transitional arrangements apply for the period up to 31/5/2020 for all tenancies agreed before the 1/6/2019

All cleared funds required to complete the tenancy arrangements including the first month’s rental, tenancy deposit must have been received and payments cleared into our bank account or received in cash at our offices before we are able to confirm the handover arrangements. In addition, you will be required to sign the tenancy agreement and make payment of your tenancy deposit within 7 days on our giving notice that references have been approved and before the start date of your tenancy.

Unfortunately it is not guaranteed. Applications are taken 'subject to contract' and the terms and conditions of the Holding Deposit. This is a prospective date and whilst every effort is made to achieve this date - subject to satisfactory referencing, it cannot be guaranteed. The Letting People act as agents for the landlord and as tenancy agreements are between the parties to the agreement i.e. the landlord and tenant, The Letting People do not accept any liability for tenancies not commencing on the planned commencement date indicated on the Holding Deposit

If you have any further additional requests regarding your occupation of the property, (such as permission to arrange installation of sky dish), we would suggest that you itemise for  the landlord - for Let Only or Rent Collection tenancies or Email to The Letting People branch for Let and Managed tenancies AFTER you have moved into the property. The Letting People regret that are unable to process additional occupation requirements between making your application and the handover of the property

If you decide to withdraw your application, please inform The Letting People as soon as possible in writing. There will be no refund of Holding Deposit paid, subject to the requirements of the Tenant Fees Act 2019

If the landlord withdraws from the letting, The Letting People will inform you as soon as possible. Your landlord is required to refund your Holding Deposit subject to the requirements of the Tenant fees Act 2019. Any other advance payments held on our accounts will be refunded to you by The Letting People as soon as practicable. Please note that the landlord is solely responsible for refunding any Holding Deposits due to you.
