Our aim is to make your experience of renting through Archon Estates as stress-free as possible. Please take your time to read through this article and understand what the process is to rent with us and how we operate.
The first thing we would need to establish is your affordability, this will allow us to match you to properties that are within your budget. Tenants should be earning in excess of times 2.5 of the annual rent. This can be achieved by an individual, couple or group. Employer references, bank statements, accountant references (if self-employed) and or payslips will need to be provided for this step. For self-employed people completing their own tax return’s, you will need up to 3 years of your tax returns.
You would also need to provide us with two forms of I.D, one for your photo and one for the address. A credit check will be carried out using the provided I.D’s and we will also carry out a previous landlord reference check provided you rented in the past. If you have never rented, we will complete an affordability check. Once you find your desired property by searching through our available property list, we will present your offer to the landlord.
We will collect a holding fee of £500 from you which is later offset against the deposit. If the landlord accepts your offer we will have your reference checks carried out after which a report will be created and shown to the landlord. We aim to have this procedure completed within 24-48 hours. A Digital copy of your photo I.D along with the final report will be kept for future reference. Sometimes there might be some delays with references, especially those coming from some HR departments as they sometimes take more than a week to complete. If you pass the reference checks you will be asked to pay the remaining balance and sign the tenancy agreement. The tenancy agreement is a contractually binding document, by signing it you agree to the terms of the tenancy.
