Renting with TSP Living:
Help us, help you
Knowing what you need on a basic level will help us to assist you in your search. It's worth thinking about the following before you start:
- What is your budget per month/week?
- How many bedrooms & bathrooms do you need?
- What date can you be available to move in?
- Do you need the apartment to be furnished?
- Length of the tenancy?
Agreeing your tenancy
Our properties are advertised at the rate the landlord will accept and we can help you to put an offer together.
Once your offer is accepted, referencing checks are needed so that the landlord can be sure that all tenants can meet the financial commitments each month.
Arranging the documentation & securing the property
Once referencing has been completed, a tenancy agreement will be drafted. TSP Living have created a more straightforward tenancy agreement without the legal jargon for ease, but of course the agreement is based on current law, and tailored according to what you and the landlord agree.
We usually require a deposit of around 6 weeks’ rent, payable before you move in. The deposit is held as security against non-payment of rent and/or any damages that may occur. Subject to checks at the end of the tenancy, it is returned to you in full. During your tenancy, it is registered and secured in a government-backed deposit scheme.
We work with the landlord to ensure the property is handed over to you in excellent condition. We give you a written inventory report that details its condition and, if applicable, a list and condition of its individual contents. When you move out, we carry out a further inventory inspection. You protect your deposit by handing hand back the property in the same condition you received it.
Who to call if there's an issue
Ideally, we'll be your point of contact throughout the term of your tenancy, however if we’re not the appointed managing agents, contact details for your landlord or the property manager's will be provided on the day you move in.
If we are looking after your property, a dedicated property manager will be on hand to help you with any queries throughout your tenancy.
Moving out or renewing
Upon signing your tenancy agreement, you and the landlord enter into a legally binding contract. You will know, from day one, the start and end dates of the tenancy. The agreement may also include a ‘break clause’, which allows you (or the landlord depending on the arrangements) to terminate the agreement early.
Before the end of your agreement, we’ll be in touch to see if you wish to renew your tenancy or move on.
We'll be sad to see you go, but If the time is right to leave, you’ll need to attend the inventory check out. This is where the property gets checked off against the original inventory. If there are any major issues, this may have an effect on your deposit.
