Applying for a property

Please ring Kelrick Properties Lettings Team on 01942 723333 for an application form or email on lettings@kelrick.co.uk   
 
References
We require all prospective tenants to complete an application form, which will be checked and references will be taken up and a credit check will be requested. The submission of a referencing application is no guarantee of tenancy. A final decision as to whether or not a tenancy can proceed will depend upon the responses received and will be made in consultation with the landlord.
Holding deposit
We will require a holding deposit equivalent to 1 week's rent to take the property off the market.
Identification
We require two forms of identification. These could be a birth certificate, a full driving licence, a full ten-year passport, a new-style National Insurance card or a Cheque Guarantee Card.
Agreement
We can provide you with an advanced copy of a tenancy agreement. You should use this opportunity to read the document and to obtain independent legal advice. The document you sign is a legally binding agreement. If you do have any questions about the tenancy, please contact us prior to the commencement of the tenancy. However, providing an advanced copy of the agreement does not guarantee you a tenancy; it is simply to provide you with an opportunity to review the agreement.
Housing benefit tenants
If you intend to claim Housing Benefit you must provide us with proof that you are receiving benefit from Jobcentreplus e.g. Universal Credit. A recently dated letter from the Jobcentreplus is required stating that you are in receipt of benefit and the name of the benefit you receive. You will need to obtain a Housing Benefit claim form. You can obtain a claim form by contacting the relevant council. Complete as much of the form as possible before coming to the office. Do not post the claim form.
Finally
Once satisfactory credit checks and references have been received and a tenancy has been agreed with the landlord, we will arrange for you to sign the tenancy agreement and check in to the property.  Your holding deposit will be deducted from the first month's rent and you will be required to pay the balance plus the tenancy deposit which will be equivalent to one month's rent.

The best Letting agency I have ever been with. Patient, kind and kept us informed every step of the way. Danielle especially is a joy to talk to and has made us very confident that letting from them is no mistake. I would recommend them to anyone looking to rent a property. Every detail is cut and dry - not full of legal jargon that you have to use a dictionary to read. Kelrick Properties makes this easy and fun.

I have been using Kelrick for a few years now to let and manage my property and I have found them to be very professional and helpful. I would strongly recommend them as a letting agent! Special mention for Darryl from the sales team who went out his way to help solve a potential problem.
