Our Service To You

When you choose to rent a home from Quay Living, we make every effort to ensure the process is as smooth and hassle-free as possible. We take the trouble to understand your precise requirements, and these will be matched as closely as possible with rental properties on our books. We will forward details of those properties for your perusal.

We undertake accompanied viewings 6 days a week, at times to suit you.

Once you have identified the property that best suits your criteria and the letting has been agreed in principle, we will ask you to complete a Tenant’s Application Form. This requests the information we will require in order to process your new tenancy. We will need proof of residence and ID from you, typically a passport or photo driving licence and a utility bill. For foreign nationals we will also require to confirm their right to rent status.

We will ask you to pay the Holding Deposit equivalent to one weeks rent to secure the property.

Please note that this Deposit is only returnable to you in the event that the landlord unilaterally decides to withdraw from the transaction for reasons unrelated to your application, references or circumstances. If you provide false or misleading information in your application the holding deposit will not be returned to you. If you have any reason to suspect that there may be a problem with your application, do please discuss it with us at the outset to see how we might be able to assist.

Once the referencing process is complete, the tenancy agreement will be prepared and sent to you with accompanying documents (as per below). The tenancy agreement will be set up for online signing which will be within two weeks of your payment of the holding deposit. Your first months rent and deposit will become payable. You will be asked to set up a bank standing order for subsequent rental payments.

  • A copy of the Energy Performance Certificate;
  • The Gas Safety Certificate (if appropriate)
  • Electrical Hardwire Certificate
  • Portable Appliance Test Certificate (where required)
  • Regulations for blocks (where required)

Your Security Deposit will be equal to 5 weeks rent and once received will be placed with the DPS, as required by law.

On the commencement date of your tenancy, all documentation should have been signed, monies paid so your arrival will be swift giving you more time to move-in and settle into your new home. On your move-in day we will provide to you keys and a copy of the certificates as mentioned above.

An inventory will have been undertaken just prior to move-in and available online shortly after move-in. The inventory should be read carefully. If there are any items of disrepair or items on the inventory you cannot locate, be sure to make note on the document. Once you have satisfied yourself that the inventory is accurate, you should sign online to confirm which should be completed within 7 days.

You will ordinarily be responsible for all utility bills and council tax. You will need to ensure that these are put into your own name. We write to utility providers shortly after your occupation to advise them of the commencement of your tenancy, the meter reading at that date and request bills are amended to your name. Meter readings are contained in the inventory report.

We recommend that you take out insurance to cover your own possessions, and accidental damage to landlord’s fixtures and fittings.
