Applying for a property


Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.
Once you have decided on a property, you will need to pay an administration fee. Tenant referencing will commence.
As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report.

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.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental plus £100 will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of which protection scheme is utilised. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. 
We understand that renting a property, especially for the first time, can be a worrying experience and with this in mind our most important consideration is providing you, the tenant, with the best possible service. 

We never forget that the property is your home and we can confidently assure you that by renting with Lucas Grant Lettings you will be treated with respect. By clicking the button below you will see what fees you can expect to pay.
