Applying for a Property
To apply for a Tenancy with Underwoods Town & County you must be in full time permanent employment and over 18 years of age.
You will need to complete an application form. Please make sure you complete this clearly and thoroughly. We will send this form to an outside referencing agency who will carry out the credit check and take up references.
With your application form you need all of the following:
- Photo Identification
- Proof of current address e.g. utility bill or bank statement (from the past 3 months)
- Your National Insurance number
- Tenant's contents insurance
When you apply for a tenancy you will be required to pay £250.00 (non-refundable) holding monies. This is a part payment of the overall moving cost. You will need to complete an application form within two days of reserving a property. Please make sure you complete this clearly and thoroughly. We will send this form to an outside referencing agency who will carry out the credit check and take up references.
Your Tenancy Application may not proceed until we have all the information. If you are applying for a property with a guarantor, your guarantor must alsp provide photo Identification and proof of address (IE: utility bill or bank statement from the past 3 months).
You need to agree with us the date and time you wish to come to the office to sign your Tenancy Agreement. Please allow at least ½ an hour for this. Everyone whose name is on the Agreement needs to attend this appointment. NB Saturday appointments are NOT available.
You may only move into a property once we have received cleared funds in the form of a Bankers Draft or a Debit Card. Credit cards, personal cheques and cash will not be accepted.
We let properties in two different ways. Managed means that Underwoods Town & County is your contact throughout your tenancy. Let Only means that you deal directly with your Landlord once you move in. Before you decide on a property please make sure you check with the Lettings Team which type of Let you are entering into.
If you are applying to rent a property with a guarantor, your guarantor will also need to complete a "Guarantor Application Form". If you are unsure as to whether or not you require a guarantor please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you are applying for a tenancy on behalf of your company then please contact our office on Northampton 01604 232400 or Wellingborough 01933 270360 for further details as other criteria apply.
