If you are interested in viewing one of our properties, please call or email our office to arrange a convenient appointment. Connor Properties are open Monday to Friday and will try to offer flexible evening and weekend appointments if requested.
Application and Referencing Process
After finding a property you will need to complete a Connor Properties Application Form to allow us to obtain financial, personal, professional and/or rental history references. Our application process is fast and easy to complete. In certain circumstances, you may be required to provide a guarantor and pay rent in advance to obtain a tenancy.
We are aware that everyone's situation is different and are able to use discretion and be flexible in most areas if we feel somebody is honest and has genuine reason not to be able to provide one of the main requirements as set out on the application form. Connor Properties will always discuss your options with you to allow you to make a decision that is right for you.
We believe in offering helpful and friendly advice to find your next home and not in charging excessive fees. That is why Connor Properties have just one simple fee of £100.00 per application. This fee covers a credit check, all referencing, tenancy negotiations and preparation of tenancy documents. Should you require a guarantor we charge an additional £50.
Deposit & Rent
Prior to moving into the property, you will be required to pay one month's rent in advance and the agreed deposit. In accordance with legislation, your deposit will be registered and held by the DPS. Your rent will normally be due on a monthly basis which is recommended to be set up by standing order from your bank account.
What do we expect from our tenants?
To be a tenant of ours we expect and are clear about behaviours:
- We only want to have tenants that are responsible about paying their rent, consistently, on time and in cases where tenants are reliant solely on benefits, communication. Should there be an issue or delay at any point we expect to be contacted immediately and the problem discussed.
- We only want to have tenants that treat our properties with respect. Although the property may not belong to you it is your home and should be looked after as such.
- We only want to have tenants that are good neighbours and don’t cause trouble or antisocial behaviour and disturb other people. Should we get reports of noise or nuisance behaviour by tenants or their guests we treat this very seriously and if necessary will terminate a tenancy for this behaviour.
