h1. Information for Tenants When you are looking to rent a property we feel it's vital to ensure that we don't waste your time looking at unsuitable properties, and so we take extra care to make sure that we only show you homes that we truly feel will satisfy your criteria. We are flexible with our viewing times as we realise it isn't always possible for you to view properties during the working day. Once we find you a home, and we have agreed the terms of the tenancy, we will ask you for a holding deposit which secures the property for you whilst the administrative side is dealt with. We take up references from your Bank, your Employer, previous Landlord (if applicable) and we also do an external credit check. Once these have been confirmed, we will progress towards signing the Tenancy Agreement. We have a small administration charge for carrying out the referencing and the drawing up of any tenancy agreement, so please don't hesitate to contact us for a detailed breakdown of this fee. We don't charge any renewal fees. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
"Village Properties have been the agency for the property I rent for the last few years. As a tenant, I couldn't ask for a more professional, fair, and friendly service. They utilise a good network of contractors for when things need repairing or replacing, and any works are arranged efficiently and swiftly. I've had poor experiences with letting agents in the past, but Village Properties really raise the bar, which I think is due to their local knowledge and independent approach to the services they provide."
