Once you have viewed a property and decided to proceed with the letting we will start the process of arranging the tenancy agreement, deposits, references etc...
Before commencing with the tenancy we will need to obtain satisfactory references from your employer and/or a previous or current landlord. There may also be instances when we require a personal reference or guarantor. We may also use the services of an independent referencing agency to obtain and evaluate these references. Photographic identification will also be required, such as passport or driving licence.
Once the terms have been agreed by both parties and satisfactory references received, the relevant documentation will need to be signed by you.

Before the tenancy starts (payable to Carvels Lettings ‘the Agent’)
