Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle.There are no tenant fees in line with new legislation.
Finding a property
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. Your preferences as to where in Cornwall you would like to rent. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. In some areas of Cornwall, such as Lostwithiel, rental properties can move very quickly so it really does work in your favour to be registered. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if all parties are in agreement.

Fees to tenants
There are no tenant fees.No hidden costs.
However, you will required to pay a Holding Deposit (aka Reservation Deposit). This is usually a minimum of £200. Providing the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the first monthly rental and the tenancy deposit, which are due before you move in (see below).
In the event that the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded to you in full.
However the holding deposit will be non-refundable if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your landlord's bank account.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be provided with the appropriate prescribed information and receive details regarding the scheme used. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
