Reserving the Property
Once you have decided on your chosen property contact Move Ur Way Ayrshire and we will reserve it for you.
References will be taken for each tenant & guarantor via an independent referencing agency. They will require an employer, current landlord and personal reference and will undertake a credit check. The cost of referencing is payable by the tenant once the forms are returned.
You will be supplied with 2 copies of the tenancy agreement which needs to be signed on every page to confirm you have read and understood the contents. This acts as a binding contract between you and the landlord and confirms the amount you have agreed to pay as well as your obligations as a tenant and the obligations of your landlord.
Move in Monies
Once your references are approved and you have signed the tenancy agreement you will need to pay the following before you move in to your property:
• Any amount outstanding from your admin and reference fees
• One month’s deposit
• Rent one month in advance
These monies need to be paid in cleared funds before you move in. Allow 5 working days for cheques.
Inventory and Check In
A full inspection of the property (Check In) will be carried out prior to you moving in and will include details of all furnishings and their condition. You will receive a copy of this and will have one week to dispute any items listed in the report. Both landlord & tenant are bound by the regulatory tenancy deposit scheme. This protects the landlord and tenant from future disputes regarding condition of the property after the check out process.
Renewals & Check Out
If you would like to extend your tenancy past the expiry date on your tenancy agreement, we will contact you on behalf of the landlord to negotiate a new tenancy. If you are leaving the property at the end of the tenancy, we will contact you to arrange a check out. The check out report is sent to the landlord & tenant and any deductions from the deposit are determined by the landlord. If the deductions are disputed by the tenant then the disputed amount is sent to the tenancy deposit scheme for arbitration and the balance is returned to the tenant.
