Changing The Way We Take Applications

Due to the continued lockdown we have been thinking about how we can progress enquiries to the application stage without doing a physical viewing.

After much consideration we have decided to change our procedure for those properties with a video tour available and that have received enquiries that have stressed a desire to proceed after only viewing the video.

Once the potential applicant has confirmed their wish to proceed with an application based on their viewing of the video only, we will then email them a copy of the initial application form for completion and insist that it be returned within 24 hours of sending,  we will then assess each person’s suitability to narrow down a shortlist of potential tenants for the property.

Once reviewed we will then invite the most suitable applicants to begin a formal application this will include the payment of the required holding deposit and  referencing and credit checks, subject to passing these checks we can then proceed to a no contact move-in.

All of this is subject to the landlords agreement of course and we will ensure that they are happy for us to move forward in this way so as not to delay the process of tenanting a property any longer but once the government restrictions  have been lifted we will return to our normal procedures.
