Once the offer is accepted we would do following in order to make the whole process easy.

  • Collect references
  • Arrange Tenancy Agreement

Right To Rent

The Immigration Act 2014 introduced a prohibition on renting premises to adults who do not have a right to stay here for use as their only or main home. This is to deter illegal immigration and prevent illegal immigrants from accessing our finite housing stock and displacing lawful residents. It will also help ensure that those people who do not have the right to be in the UK are prevented from establishing a settled life here. Landlords who breach this prohibition may be subject to a civil penalty.

The landlord/agent must:

  • Check all adult tenants who will live in the property as their only or main home
  • Ask tenants for the original documents that show they have the right to be in the UK
  • Check the original documents with the tenant physically present and ensure their validity
  • Make copies of the original documents once the checks are completed

Right to Rent checks have been introduced as part of wider Government reforms to the immigration system. For more information visit the Home Office website www.GOV.uk

FEES:

We believe in fair invoicing and charge only what covers the cost of necessary expense. Our Administration fee is fixed to:

£199 per tenant

Which covers collecting and verifying references from employer/accountant and previous landlord reference as well as carrying out a credit check and collecting a copy of passport, proof of residency, bank statements and a recent payslip.

Tenant’s FAQ’s

If I have problems with tenancy?

In case of a problem or a query, our office will be directly dealing with any issue. You can use following services to contact us:

What references do I need to get?

You will be asked for a previous landlord letter along with work reference and a personal reference.

Contacting the utility companies after I move in?

You as the tenant are responsible for setting up accounts with the utility companies directly when you move into your property and also when you leave, make sure to provide the final meter readings while moving out, to avoid any future bills under your name. Alternatively, we can arrange the full change over of utilities for you. Please ask a member of staff.

How do I work out a monthly rental payment?

The best way to work out the monthly rental payment for a property is to multiply the weekly rent by 52 and divide the total by 12.

How do I pay rent?

We encourage all our tenants to pay the rent via Bank Transfer or Direct Debit each month when the rent is due. Any rent paid in cash will have a charge of 3% for cash handling bank charges.

What happens if my rent is paid late?

Any problems with rental payments that may result in late payment, must be brought into the attention of Your Property London immediately. If your rent payment is late by 5 days from the due date, you will be sent a late payment letter (which will be charged) and a late payment fee will be added on daily basis at the cost of £25 per day until the rent is paid in full.

How do I serve notice to vacate my property?

Serving notice to vacate your property is subjective to the terms of the lease. At the end of your contract, you must give a notice to Your Property London in writing 30 days prior to your contract end date. The notice period will be counted starting the date of notice when served.

What will happen if I break my tenancy early?

The primary liability is for rent until the end of the contract or its break clause point.

If the landlord agrees to re-market the property and once a new tenant is found, then your liability will be reduced to covering the landlord's commission and any other expenses from when the property is re-let. Payments would be calculated on a pro-rata basis for the unexpired term of the contract.

As an outgoing tenant typically your costs will be associated with professional cleaning and the inventory check out. Any discrepancies between the check in and check out may result in deductions from your deposit.

Is my deposit protected under Government Deposit Protection Scheme?

The Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme will protect your deposit. In line with legislation introduced in April 2007 all deposits being paid by a tenant for an Assured Short-hold Tenancy must be registered with a recognized deposit protection scheme within 30 days. Where appropriate, Your Property London will register the deposit on your behalf. We are registered members of MY DEPOSIT SCHEME and all deposits are protected.

Once the checkout has been conducted, the property has been cleaned to a satisfactory standard and Your Property London has received instructions regarding the deposit from the landlord, the money will be returned to your account, less any agreed deductions.

This typically takes 10 working days and generally no more than 28 days.
