No Deposit?

At The Accommodation Shop we realise that in the current difficult financial climate sometimes finding enough money to pay for rent and deposits can be difficult.

We have been working hard with our Landlords to come up with an alternative to the current Deposit required when moving into a rental property. The current legislation and fee’s required to protect tenants deposits has led us to develop this new service.

We have therefore launched our new Tenant Bond Guarantee.

The Tenant Bond Guarantee is available on selected properties from our current stock and enables applicants to apply for properties if they cannot find the full traditional deposit required.

Pet Friendly Landlords

Pet Friendly Rentals

Pet Friendly Rentals

An article in Landlord & Buy-to-Let magazine highlighted a very interesting fact that landlords that accept pets in a property open themselves up to a far greater pool of potential tenants. With tenancies lasting longer in the property.

At The Accommodation Shop we are always keen to speak to landlords that will accept pets. We are finding an increased demand for pet friendly landlords across Kent, particularly those in rural and semi-rural areas.

We have put in place our own Pet Clause that is appended to the tenancy agreement. We also ask for a larger deposit, a non-refundable payment in advance or insist that when the tenant vacates the property it is professionally cleaned and de-flea treatment put down by one of our own contractors who specialise in this area.

A recent survey by the NLA has highlighted the need for landlords to carry out proper background checks on all prospective tenants.

It is essential these days that you carry out a proper tenant check to ensure that the property you are letting will be paid for. It will also enable you to purchase Rent Guarantee cover for the period of the let as well.

Using a recognised letting agent that can do these checks for you in a timely manner is also highly beneficial and can speed up the process of letting out your property.

Would you rather be a landlord with piece of mind or a landlord with a potential nightmare on your hands?
