The tenant is required to make a payment of their first month’s rent AND their deposit by exactly one calendar month before the tenancy begins. (For example, if the tenancy begins on 1st July, then the rent and deposit will need to be received by us on 1st June). We ask that you set up a standing order with your bank (either via online banking or at the branch in person) for this payment. Please ensure that the payment is sent a minimum of 3 days in advance of the due date to cater for weekends/bank holidays and some slow banking processes.
We will require you to send us evidence that you have set this up.
If you have set this up online, please take a screenshot of the confirmed standing order and attach the photo of the evidence required to your application.
If you have set this up in branch, please ask for a receipt, advice slip or confirmation email that your standing order has been set up. Again, please then take a photo or screenshot of the confirmed standing order and attach the photo of the evidence required to your application.
