How to rent a property from us

Jacksons signFinding a property

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require.

We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available.

It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly.

Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months..

Sorry but we can’t help you if you are on benefits.

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

Reserving the property

Once you have decided on a property, you will need to reserve it by paying a holding deposit.

Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the payment due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded.
