At Knights Estate Agents we realise that renting a property can sometimes be a daunting prospect, especially if you have never rented before.  With this in mind we think it’s crucial to be transparent in the process.

The below is our ‘Guide for Tenants’ which takes you through the procedure of renting and even gives you the associated costs you need to be aware of. Should you book a viewing the below will be emailed to you at the point of confirmation along with the exact breakdown of associated costs for that specific property.

This guide is for tenants and landlords in the private rented sector to help them understand their rights and responsibilities. It provides a checklist and more detailed information on each stage of the process, including:

  • what to look out for before renting
  • living in a rented home
  • what happens at the end of a tenancy
  • what to do if things go wrong

PHOTO ID AND PROOF OF ADDRESS ARE REQUIRED FROM ALL TENANTS – COPIES OF WHICH WILL BE KEPT ON FILE. This must be provided before references are taken.

We will ask for a holding deposit to secure the property, subject to contract and references. Should you decide not to proceed with the let or application forms are returned later than 7 days then Knights reserve the right to retain the holding deposit to cover their losses. If a prospective tenant or guarantor has given misleading information that cannot be construed as a mistake on an application the application will be refused and we reserve the right to retain the Holding Deposit.
