Guide to Renting
Step 1: Find the right property
Search through our website to find the right property for you, and simply give us a call! We’ll make an appointment for a viewing with you and start the rental process. We appreciate that everyone has busy lives so we do viewings 5 days a week 9am- 6pm and Saturdays
10am – 4pm.
Step 2: Secure the property
If you decide the property is the right one for you we require a holding deposit (One months rent) which secures the property for you. This forms part of your security deposit. You will then receive our terms of letting.
Step 3: Credit and Reference Checking Process
We will check one reference which can be either the previous landlord, professional citizen or employer reference – but remember we need applicants to provide the right information! Once completed we will contact you to arrange a tenancy agreement signing at one of our offices.
Step 4: Signing the Tenancy Agreement
Your scheduled appointment will take approx 30 Min’s and we require photographic ID and proof of current address. As standard we take one months rent in advance and one months rent deposit.
Step 5: Moving in
Before moving in you will be issued with full tenant information, an inventory of contents and condition, a set of keys and instruction for future payment. Each property has a dedicated maintenance manager – you will be advised at your tenancy agreement signing.
Step 6: During your Tenancy
Empire Letting are your first point of contact for any issue relating to a management property. We will do our very best to resolve any issues you may have. If you have any maintenance or other issues to report please contact us.
Step 7: Ending your Tenancy
Once we have received adequate notice to end your tenancy we will ask you to make a termination appointment. At this time a Empire Letting representative will visit the property to check you out.
