A Step-By-Step Guide To Renting One of Our Properties
 

Step 1 Register Your Interest
 

The first step to finding the right property is to register with us either by calling us in Wirksworth on 01629 823008 or by visiting our office where you can discuss your property requirements with our staff. You can also register requirements via our website.
 

Step 2 Finding The Right Property
 

Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements you will receive a selection of properties that match your criteria. We can also keep you constantly up-to-date via email and SMS alerts when the latest properties become available.
 

Step 3 – Applying For The Property
 

Notes For Applicants
 

To make an application for one of our properties you must:
 

Applying for the property
 

If you wish to rent one of our properties, we will need you to download and complete the Application Form (one for each applicant.)  If  required, download and complete the Guarantor Application Form. Pay the tenancy application fee and provide two forms of identification i.e. driver's licence / passport / utility bill and your three most recent payslips.  If relevant, we will also ask for a reference from your current landlord / letting agent.
 

Tenancy Application fee: (NON - REFUNDABLE)

This charge covers the cost of a credit check and current landlord reference.

 

         Main Tenant / Individual  = £150.00 (incl VAT)

         Each additional Tenant /Guarantor =£ 50.00 (incl VAT)

 

PLEASE NOTE, THE LANDLORD IS ABLE TO REJECT YOUR APPLICATION IF ANY REFERENCE CHECKS PROVE NEGATIVE. IN THIS CASE, THERE WILL BE NO REFUND.
 

Deposit/Bond: You are required to pay the holding deposit/bond, which is equal to one month’s rent plus £100 prior to taking possession of the property or if we have agreed to hold the property for longer than two weeks. If, for whatever reason, the Tenant thereafter withdraws from the agreement or the Tenant fails the reference procedure, this deposit will be used to offset the Landlord’s reasonable costs incurred during the time in which the application is being processed, this shall be charged at the daily rate of the monthly rental.
 

If the application however, is successful, then the deposit will be used as the security deposit. If the Landlord withdraws from the agreement for whatever reason, a full refund will be given.
 

Step 4. Signing Up
 

You’ll need to pay One month’s rent in advance along with your deposit and inventory fee. (Cash, Personal Cheque or Building Society Cheque). Please note that we must be in receipt of cleared funds prior to you taking possession of the property. Please allow 5 working days for your personal cheque to clear. Please make all cheques payable to “SmartLet”.
 

You can pay by credit/debit card but please note there is 2% transaction fee when paying by card.
