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.

Thank you to everyone at Kelrick Properties for looking after me royally for eight years with a beautiful quality house and with your flawless professional service that made me feel like such a valued client. If I ever needed help, you were always very quick to respond, and I really appreciated your excellent liaison with the landlords. As I'd never been a tenant before, it was all new to me and you made it easy from day one. Even when I moved out, Nigel made sure the handover was smooth and easy. You even returned the original deposit within days. I can't thank you all enough. I was so happy and settled in the house and a lot of that feeling of ease was down to your care. Thank you all and may I just wish you every continued success in the future.

Kelrick Properties have served us very well for the last eight years in renting out our property in Ince, Wigan. We live abroad and they have managed to achieve tenants for us, and sort out all our contracts and maintenance at our property efficiently and without hassle. We highly recommend them and use their complete service enabling us to be "worry free". We value their time and expertise as we value our tenants. Sandy and Shirley Montgomery (France).

Another year where Kelrick Properties have looked after the letting of our property and managed a difficult situation for us and our tenant with discretion and a good outcome for both parties.
Here's to another year of stress free letting, for us! (January 2019)
