INFORMATION FOR TENANTS

Why Rent Via Scriven & Co?

We have been established since 1937 and are a regulated firm, abiding by accounting rules and Code of Conducts of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and ARLA Propertymark (the Association of Residential Lettings Agents).

The department has several highly qualified staff and all have a professional, friendly manner.

All properties let by Scriven & Co. are MANAGED by us. This means we care about the tenants, the condition of the properties we let and the way our landlords deal with tenants. Fairness and reasonableness are expected from all parties.

You liaise directly with us relative to any matter.

Unless an emergency occurs, no one will ever enter your property without your prior consent and/or prior written notice.

We are regularly praised by tenants relative to the professional way tenancy matters are dealt with.

When it is time to move on, many tenants return to us to rent again.

Renting Procedure

1. View the property.

2. All adults 18 or over complete an application form, and submit to our offices together with proof of identification (to ensure compliance with the Home Office Right to Reside Regulations), and proof of address (to satisfy the referencing company). It is essential that the anticipated start-date is detailed clearly on the tenancy application form(s), as this date will be the “deadline for agreement”. This deadline is typically 14 days after the holding deposit has been paid, although can be more or less than 14 days, providing an agreement can be made between Scriven & Co on behalf of the landlord, with the tenant.

3. Clients are advised of the application and instructions received.

4. Once all details are agreed, including moving timescale, length of tenancy, etc., you pay the refundable holding deposit equivalent to one weeks’ rent. This is calculated by multiplying the monthly rent by 12 to establish the yearly rent, and the yearly rent is then divided by 52 (weeks in a year) to calculate 1 weeks’ rent being the holding deposit. This figure is then “rounded-down” to the nearest £5.00. Providing all references are satisfactory, and the application proceeds to the granting of a tenancy, the “refundable holding deposit” will be subsequently transferred as a contribution to form part of the “refundable tenancy deposit”.

It is important to be aware that a holding deposit can be retained by Scriven & Co if:

1. You provide false or misleading information which we consider when deciding whether to accept your application on behalf of the landlord/client. This includes a “tenants’ behaviour when providing false or misleading information”.

2. An applicant failed the right to reside check.

3. You withdraw your application to rent the property.

4. You fail to take reasonable steps to ensure that the tenancy agreement starts by the agreed date, whilst we take reasonable steps to do so. This may include you not assisting to facilitate the collection of references

5. Referencing is undertaken online, whilst the property is reserved for you (subject to the information provided being found to be correct). Viewings on the property stop as long as there is no undue delay in obtaining the reference(s).

6. Referencing usually takes 3-4 days, dependent upon the speed of response of employers, etc., which is done electronically where possible.

7. Once satisfactory references are received you will be contacted to confirm the moving in/start date. Typically, within 3-5 days, providing both parties want the tenancy to start as soon as possible. You will be telephoned/emailed and dates, monies required, etc., will be confirmed in writing to you.

8. A copy of the tenancy agreement is forwarded to you prior to the commencement date, giving the opportunity to raise any queries. A copy of the prescribed information in relation to the tenancy deposit, Energy performance certificate, and the latest version of the “How to rent” document will also be sent to you at this time.

9. The Tenancy Agreement used is approved by ARLA Propertymark and amendments are made to it by Scriven & Co.

10. Prior to day the tenancy starts we will visit the property to prepare both a written and photographic schedule recording the condition of the property and contents. Copies of each will be provided to you at the time of signing the tenancy agreement (unless you have signed the contract in advance of the tenancy starting) and you will have a full seven days to check the accuracy of the documents, making any comments where you feel necessary. The written schedule will also detail meter readings and the schedules are designed to provide peace of mind, and reduce the risk of conflict at the end of the tenancy.

11. Keys are released upon the signature of the tenancy agreement (and the signing of any other documentation including the landlords gas safety certificate) and payment of both the rent and tenancy deposit.

12. You will be required to pay a tenancy deposit equivalent to 5 weeks rent which will registered in accordance with the requirements of the TDS (The Dispute Service). Similar to the holding deposit, the tenancy deposit will be calculated in the same way, however the weekly rent will be multiplied by 5 (before being rounded down to the nearest £5.00).

13. Pets – subject to the landlord being in agreement with you keeping a pet at the property, any agreement would be subject to the monthly rent being increased by £25.00pcm, and also the tenant being responsible for ensuring that all carpets and flooring coverings are professionally cleaned, prior to the end of the tenancy, and also the tenant being liable to make good any damage. Proof of the professional cleaning would need to be provided in the form of a receipt of invoice.

How Much Will I Have to Pay Up Front?

1. A Holding Deposit equivalent to 1 week’s rent.

2. A Tenancy deposit equivalent to 5 weeks’ rent which will be registered with the TDS (The Dispute Service) where it remains protected in accordance with this government approved scheme.

3. First rent payment of one month’s rent in advance. This can vary slightly dependent upon the day of the month when the tenancy starts. We are happy to expand on this.

Additional charges which may be applicable to some tenants during the tenancy.

a) Alterations or changes to the tenancy agreement when requested by the tenant - £50.00 including VAT.

b) Payments associated with early termination of tenancy when requested by the tenant. Where a tenant(s) is no longer able to continue with the tenancy, it maybe that the landlord will allow the tenancy to be ended prematurely, by way of entering into an early termination agreement. The early termination agreement will be agreed in writing and will ensure that the tenant does not incur costs that exceed the loss incurred by the landlord, and also any reasonable costs that Scriven & Co would incur in order to re-let the property (such as referencing and marketing costs).

c) A default fee for late payment of rent.

d) Costs to replace lost keys/security devices, where required under the tenancy agreement.

How Do I Pay My Rent?

Preferably by standing order. We will assist in the completion of the Standing Order Mandate form when the tenancy agreement is signed and keys released. If you start your tenancy part way through the month you will pay a part-month’s rent. However, if your tenancy start date is after the 19th day of the month you will be asked to pay the next month’s rent as an addition. Future payments will then be paid monthly in advance on the first day of every month.

What Other Bills Will I have To Pay?

Usual household bills such as council tax, gas, electricity, water, T.V. licence, Virgin Media/Sky subscriptions, etc. You may wish to take out insurance relative to landlord’s fixtures and fittings. The landlord pays for buildings insurance and any service charge (usually appropriate in flats). You should also take out contents insurance to safeguard your own property, and furthermore, we would recommend that any insurance policy provides the tenant with alternative accommodation should the let property become incapable of occupation, for example by reason of fire or structural defect.

Who Should I Contact?

For any query both before or after a tenancy begins, contact our Lettings Department on 0121-422 4011 (option 2) and speak to any member of the team. No matter how minor an issue, we are happy to assist.
