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.
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).
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).
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.
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.
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.
