Why Rent with us?
Rented properties now make up approximately a third of the total properties in England and increasing property prices indicate that this trend will continue well into the future. Renting allows for flexibility and lets people live more centrally in areas they would otherwise not be able to afford to buy.
The rental process is straightforward and we aim to make it as stress free as possible.
At The Purple Property Shop we will match you to the properties that meet your needs and budget and give you all the important details you need about the property, for example how to use the heating system and local transport links.
Progressing credit and reference checks couldn’t be simpler. We complete the initial paperwork in the office and the rest is done online. The credit and reference costs are £150 for the first tenant and £50 for each tenant after that and £50 should a guarantor be required. In addition there is a £16 charge for Right To Rent checks, payable to the credit and referencing company. It is important to be aware that this money is non-refundable.
The tenancy agreement is then signed with one of the Lettings team and we then get all the paperwork ready for you to move in. As we are open seven days a week there is always someone available to assist with any queries.
We aim to make the rental process as smooth as possible and will work with you to agree a date and time to suit you to meet at the property and hand over the keys to the property. We also take the stress away of swapping over the utility companies and council tax as we do all this for you!
Register with Us
Register your property requirements with us and we will send you a selection of properties to meet your needs and budget. Once you have chosen the properties you would like to view we’ll arrange viewings for you. If there is any information you need to know about the property, for example local amenities and transport links then do not hesitate to ask us.
When you have decided on the property that is right for you we will commence credit and reference checks.
The tenancy agreement is then drawn up and at this point one month’s rent payable in advance is due along with the deposit (which is equal to one month’s rent). At this point we also agree a move in date with you.
During this time we will be working with the landlord to ensure the property is ready and safe for you to move into, including gas certificate, smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
Just prior to you moving in to the property an inventory will be completed, a copy of which you will receive by email. On the day you move into the property either the landlord or one of our agents will meet you at the property and provide you with all the required paperwork.
