We use Rent4sure to conduct all of our credit and reference checks.
By law, we have to collect Identification from prospective Tenants. This is in line with Money Laundering Regulations 2007 so please do not get offended when a member of staff requests this from you.
On the day that you move in, all tenants must attend our Lettings office (Cherry Tree House 34 Mannamead Road Plymouth PL4 7AF) where you will be taken through all of the paperwork that needs to be signed before you are given the keys to the property. We will never meet you at the property so please ensure that you come to the office at the allotted time.
If there is an EMERGENCY out of office hours then please call the Lettings Department on 01752 500018 and you will be given further instruction. DO NOT instruct your own contractor as you may become liable for their call out charge.
The tenancy created may be terminated by the tenant giving one clear months’ notice in writing and NOT before the expiration of the fixed term. Thereafter the tenancy will need to be renewed or roll onto a periodic tenancy.
We lodge all of our managed properties deposits in The Deposit Protection Custodial Scheme.
If you were introduced to your landlord by our Tenant Find Only Scheme then it is likely that we paid the Deposit over to them for lodging in their own scheme at the time your tenancy agreement started. However, on occasion the Landlord may have requested that we lodge it in our scheme on their behalf.
In the event that you require confirmation where your deposit was lodged (and you are were introduced via our Tenant Find Only scheme) please contact us on 01752 500018.
Call us immediately and we will do our utmost to assist you.
The answer is no, however if you wish to be there whilst the report is being compiled by one of our staff then please let our Lettings Department know.
You would be expected to leave the property in the same state as when you originally moved into it. The Inventory will be compared with the final inspection report and a decision made as to whether any works are required to bring it up to a satisfactory standard.
