Letting - Tenants
Step by Step Guide to Renting with Walmsley Estate Agency
Step 1 – Register with us
Call us on 0118 947 0511 or email to register now. We can discuss your search requirements and once we have your details you will receive email alerts on new properties as they become available. Registering with us puts you one step ahead of the game, so you can be in the best position to secure your new property.
Step 2 – Arrange a Viewing
When you find a property of interest, call us to arrange an accompanied viewing. Our staff are well versed in the properties we market, and all are familiar with the local area, so if you have any questions, they’ll be able to answer them. And if it helps, we can even chauffeur you to the viewing in one of our company cars.
Step 3 – Making an Offer
Once you have found a suitable property, you will need to make an offer, which we will then put forward to the landlord.
Step 4 – Offer Agreed
If your offer is accepted we will:
- Request a non-refundable amount to reserve the property, and remove it from advertising (£250 on tenancies under £1000pcm, £500 on those above)
- Collect references from your referees and carry out credit checks
- Arrange for the signing of the Tenancy Agreement
- Collect your moving in payment (rent +deposit)
Step 5 – Completion
When all references are back and considered to be satisfactory, a completion date (move in date) will be organised. We will arrange for the transfer of utilities and you will be given a set of keys on a mutually agreed day.
