Further information

Within our Gold Service we are happy to assist in the organisation of tradesmen, liaise with landlord/tenant on any matter and organise quotes for work need etc., acting upon the landlords instruction

We do not provide inventories or check out/check in but can organise these with a professional company on your behalf should you so wish. We would highly recommend that you have an inventory carried out as this would be very important in the unlikely event you have to go to arbitration at the end of the contract. Of course, you can do your own inventory but you would be advised to add video or photographic evidence to your inventory.

Management – We do have the option of full management – details on request

For Tenants

We take the stress out of moving into your new home

A reliable service with local expertise

Cobb Farr work on the theory that keeping a tenant happy makes for a good tenant so we always try to go above and beyond to achieve this aim.  We specialise in good quality properties and offer a fair a reliable service.

Tenant Fees

Once you have paid a holding deposit (equivalent to one weeks rent), the property is reserved for you with no further viewings. This fee then forms part of your damages deposit (usually equivalent to five weeks rent).  For a full description of fees, please click on the link below.

Tenant Fee Information

All tenants need to pass a reference check before a tenancy agreement can be drawn up, as well as providing one proof of address and one proof of identity (photo ID).
Tenancy agreement
Once your references have been checked, a tenancy agreement is drafted and sent to all parties to sign. This agreement sets out the terms of the tenancy, and highlights the responsibilities of both landlord and tenant.
Final Payment
Before moving in you make your final payment (one month’s rent plus the balance of your deposit). The deposit is returnable at the end of the tenancy, subject to a final inspection/full inventory check.
Moving in
We arrange to meet you at a suitable time to complete the moving in process, either in our office, or a member of our team will be at the property to greet you and hand over your keys.
