Securing a Property to Rent

Having found a suitable house or flat to rent, what happens next? You should begin by putting down a holding deposit in order to state your intention to rent the property and get the property off the market.


Regional Homes will be keen to make sure that you are a suitable tenant, while also making sure that you have rented a property without any major problems in the past (if this is applicable). If instructed, the letting agent will organise this, and at this point, they are likely to ask for the non-refundable holding deposit, along with your permission to conduct the relevant searches. Be aware that should you fail any of the necessary checks, you may not get your non-refundable holding deposit back. Check with the letting agent before agreeing to hand over any cash or signing any forms.

Tenants Information Guide

If you agree all of the following documents may be requested by the letting agent:

References from previous landlords

A credit check – this will allow them to see if you have a good history of paying your bills.
Details of your employment – your employer, job title, payroll number, salary, previous employer, etc.
Also the following documentation is required from any potential tenant/guarantor for the property.

In the event that the information highlights any potential of risk to the landlord, you may be asked to provide a guarantor. A guarantor will be contractually liable, both financially and legally, should you fail to pay the rent during your tenancy or in the event of damage to the property.
