Information for Tenants


Dee Atkinson & Harrison have a wide range of properties available for our prospective tenants. If you are searching for a property to rent try our search facility to find your ideal home! Please find detailed below a brief overview of our services and application procedures. If you have any queries please contact one of our offices.

Viewing A Property

If you have seen a property advertised with us that you would like to view you simply need to contact the office responsible for that property. Generally it will be the nearest office to the property locality. You can call or email us. We will ask you for a few details and arrange a convenient appointment for you to look around the property with a member of staff.

Please note: all of our viewings are accompanied by either a member of staff or the Landlord of the property. We do not release keys to viewers.

Tenancy Application Form

If you wish to apply for tenancy of one of our properties you will need to collect an application form. One application form is required for each person over the age of 18 who will be living at the property. Generally these are collected from our office but they can be emailed to you in certain circumstances. You will be required to complete the application form and return it to us with our referencing fee of £70 (per application), photographic proof of identification and proof of your current address. Please be aware that the referencing fee is non refundable.

References

Once your application has been returned to us it will be submitted to our credit reference agency who will run checks on your employment status, credit score and residential status, and request previous Landlord references where applicable. We will receive a report from the agency when these checks are complete. It is at this stage we will contact you to inform you whether your application has been successful.

Tenancy With Us

Once a tenancy has been agreed you will be asked to visit our office to sign your tenancy agreement and pay your first month’s rent and deposit. When this is all complete we can hand you the keys to your new home!

Dee Atkinson & Harrison has a dedicated Lettings team who are on hand to answer any queries you may have during your tenancy. If your property is managed by us you will be able to contact a member of staff to enquire about any issues you may have with your rent, the property or even just general tenancy questions. We have a widely skilled maintenance team who are available to attend any repairs you may need to report and, during public holidays such as Christmas, our tenants are provided with emergency contact numbers for contractors.

Security Deposit

Dee Atkinson & Harrison are members of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme for Regulated Agents (TDSRA). This scheme has been developed to ensure that the deposits held by the TDSRA are protected and that disputes about their return are resolved swiftly, inexpensively and impartially. Tenants can be assured when handing over their deposits to firms covered by this scheme that their money is safe and will be returned to them in full if the terms of the tenancy are adhered to and the property is maintained and left to a high standard. So, you can rest assured that your deposit money is in safe hands.
