Tenants Information

Tenant Referencing

Once the referencing is complete and you have signed the contract, the Landlord of your chosen property will also sign the contract. Now you can relax, you have found your new home. All that remains is for you to pay the balance of rent and deposit before move in day (we usually recommend paying no less than 72 hours before move in day to avoid any delays due to bank errors etc). Then simply come to our office on the first day of your Tenancy to collect the keys!

Client Money Protection is now a mandatory requirement for all letting agents

Property Options is a member (CMP005986) of Client Money Protect (CMP), a government approved Client Money Protection Membership Scheme that protects any money held by a letting agent. The scheme ensures that that money such as rents and deposits are safeguarded whilst in the custody of their agent and are returned to clients if anything should happen to the agent.
