Properties to Rent
Arranging a viewing
When you find a property that interests you please look through the marketing information and watch the Video Tour. All our properties are listed with an 'Available Date' which indicates the earliest date that property is available to move into. If the property meets your requirements then the best way to arrange a viewing is to call the relevant office and speak to a member of our team.
Our properties move very quickly and we advise securing a viewing appointment as soon as possible. Due to the nature of the letting industry, properties are let and removed from the market with no notice and we can not unfortunatley accept any liability for viewings that get cancelled or don't go ahead.
All viewings will be conducted by a member of our team who will be happy to answer any questions you have and share all the information we hold on that property.
On deciding to rent a property the following key terms need to be agreed upon :- tenancy start date, monthly rent, length of tenancy and who will be living in the property. Should you have any other requirements these should be raised before proceeding.
The application process
We offer an easy, online tenancy application process in partnership with Goodlord. When we have agreed the key terms of the let, we will send an invite to you through Goodlord. You can then reserve the property, complete tenant referencing forms and upload supporting documents all from the comfort of your own home, 24/7.
You will be required to pay a holding deposit equivalent to 1 weeks rent to reserve the property. When the let proceeds, the deposit will be offset against your move in monies. Please note you may forfeit the holding deposit under certain circumstances. See our tenant fee schedule for more information.
You will be provided with all the appropriate documentation when you apply to help you understand what you are signing up to. This will include a draft copy of the tenancy agreement, how to rent guide and a detailed tenant guide confirming the key terms of the agreement.
The Goodlord referencing team will conduct the necessary residential, income and credit checks. Our Tenancy Managers will then review the referencing report provided by Goodlord and get in touch to confirm when referencing has been successful. Contracts will then be issued for signing and your Tenancy Manager will be in touch to arrange a suitable time for you to come to the office to complete the 'Check In'.
Important : We will keep the applicant informed on our progress with referencing until all references are satisfied. Whilst The Bristol Residential Letting Co will do everything possible to complete an acceptable reference, we retain the right to turn down an application.
Don't hesitate to get in touch
Your application to rent a property and the preperation of your tenancy is processed by our Tenancy Managers. Emma and Karen are here to help so please get in touch if you have any questions about your application or check in
The Check In
All check ins are completed at the office where the property is rented from. At the check in you are required to bring in photographic ID.
At the check in you will be provided with keys for your property and contact details of who is managing the property. If the property is managed by The Bristol Residential Letting Co you will also be provided with an emergency 24 hour telephone number.
Most check ins should only take a few minutes to complete but we do ask that all applicants wanting to check in arrive at least 30 minutes before the office closes. If you are running late we would ask you to call the office as soon as you are aware of this. Applicants arriving after the office has closed will unfortunatley have to wait until the next working day to check into their property.
Important : keys cannot be released until we have received all tenant & guarantor photo ID, payment of initial funds as cleared funds, tenancy agreement signed through Goodlord by all tenants, guarantor agreement if applicable and all referencing having been satisfied.
