Guide for Tenants

Finding a property

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accomodation you require. 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 properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months.

Viewings

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including weekends. You will be accompanied by a member of staff who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

Applying for the property

Once you have decided on a property you will need to complete a tenant application form. Please contact our office for details.

References

As a minimum we require satisfactory references from your employer, and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. To comply with our legal responsibilities for the 'Right to Rent' checks, we will require a passport for all applicants. Appropriate visa details will be required if you are not an EU citizen.

Rents

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance usually on the first of the month. The tenant is usually also responsible for council tax, water rates, gas, electricity, TV licence and telephone bills if applicable. All rents are payable by standing order to our bank account.

Deposit

A deposit must be paid. This is held by the DPS to cover damage, breakages, rent arrears 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.

Fees

We charge a non refundable fee of £50 per applicant to cover credit check and referencing costs. If you are successful with your application and you take a property a single, one off processing fee of £150 is payable to cover the preparation and signing of the legal paperwork, but only payable if you are successful and move into a property with us. This processing fee is a SINGLE payment. NOT per tenant.

If a guarantor is required we charge £25.00.

We DO NOT charge tenancy renewal fees like many other agents.

Fees quoted include vat.

Repairs

We have a designated repairs coordinator to ensure repairs and maintenance are carried out promptly. We understand that one of the main complaints tenants have against landlords is disrepair. As an agent we will act to ensure repairs are done within a reasonable time period, keeping you updated at all times.

Contents Insurance

We recommend that you consider having contents insurance to not only protect your belongings but also your deposit. If you have an accident which causes damage to the landlord’s carpet, for example, contents insurance including accidental damage will enable you to claim for damage and protect any claim on your deposit. Contents insurance is also designed to protect you in the event the accommodation you are renting becomes uninhabitable due to unforeseen circumstances such as flood or fire. It is not a well-known fact, but the landlord is not responsible for re housing you under such circumstances but we will do our best to assist you. Further details are available on request.

I should have waited 30 minutes as it is all completed now, so please release the keys. Thanks for your help in making this all happen, it is very much appreciated and so nice to find an agent who is pleasant to work with. If you need a recommendation at any time, please just ask.

I have been extremely fortunate enough to deal with Sherrie and the team at the town centre branch now for just over three years.
Having already used *********** in the past where i had a pretty appaling experience i was always going to be apprehensive using another agent.
With my time with Peter David, they have provided me an excellent and trustworthy service. Always found me great tenants which have proved to be exactly what i required. I have enjoyed working with them all and without them i don't think it would have been possible to carry on as a landlord.
The only reason i am leaving their service is because a family member is taking over the house now.

A truely substantial and thorough service they offer and personally worth every single penny. I have never felt any doubt or stress while they have dealt with my house and tenants. Thank you so much for the past few years guys, i couldn't recommend them enough to anyone who are looking for a managed tenancy company. Fantastic!!!

Again thank you so much for your help, you and all your staff have been brilliant with us, and having dealt with a number of Estate Agents now we know how rare it can be to get service and support like this!

Good to know there are 28 pictures on Rightmove. Thanks for your continued professionalism and service in handling this process, we've really appreciated your support.

I also wanted to say a big thank you. You have been invaluable in the purchase of Copley Drive. We really appreciate all your efforts to move things forward and keep communications going. It has been a stressful time for us and it helped us greatly to have our questions answer so quickly (solicitors are not always so helpful!). If we ever sell Copley Drive we would absolutely use Peter David Properties and would highly recommend you also. I look forward to putting a face to the voice on Friday when I collect the keys!

We can't thank you enough Helen for your friendly, professional, on-the-ball personality we've had the pleasure of dealing with since April. I remember the first call to arrange a valuation and hearing your broad Yorkshire accent and thinking "hhmm I like Peter David best so far" and you've kept that up since then. We cannot imagine doing all of this without you, I don't think you realise how supportive you've been through a house move, marriage and a sudden loss. You've chased things without me having to ask and just have a way of calming things down when the frustrating days got too much.You were our perfect match to help us get our new home and we can never thank you enough. Peter David Properties have a very special added touch having you on their team and if anyone was to ask if we would recommend I would hand on heart say 100% and I believe that's very rare these days to say. (As you know I'm tough to please!!!!) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Have a fantastic Christmas, enjoy family time and I shall see you on Facebook!

One card, two thank you's. Wonderful service. Love and all the best for 2015 and beyond.

We can not fault the service provided by Peter David Properties and in particular yourself. We feel that you have played a major part in bringing both the sale and purchase together so that it happens this coming Friday the 4th December. We feel that without your intervention last week, we may still be waiting for contracts to be exchanged. So thank you Helen - we appreciate everything you have done to assist us.

Mr & Mrs M, Highroad Well (vendor and buyer, December 2015)

I couldn't fault you even if I wanted to. Excellent service from start to finish from Matt, Liz and Vicky. You know how to deal with people as well as houses. You made me feel secure, kept me in the loop at all times and delivered what you said you would. Thank you.

Mrs A, Hebden Bridge (vendor now living in Bristol, November 2015)
