If you any questions on our fees, please ask a member of staff.
We will ask for your address history for the last three years and complete a credit check on each individual tenant. We will also require a reference from your existing Landlord or Letting Agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts.
The lease you sign will be an Assured Shorthold, which means that you can stay in the property for the period of the lease (provided you meet all the obligations of the lease). If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given two months’ notice to quit the premises.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair, that you are looking after the property and discuss any problems you may be experiencing. You will be given notification when an inspection is due to be conducted.
In the event of maintenance being required please telephone us at the earliest possible time in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Trades persons will be alerted by the Agent and dependent upon the nature and urgency of the task will respond accordingly. Simple precautionary procedures should then be taken by the tenant to prevent any additional problem arising e.g. turn off water at the stopcock if necessary, isolate electric or gas supplies at the mains where required.
You cannot have any pets unless we have permission from the landlord/ourselves in writing. You must consult us prior to obtaining a pet and submit a written request to have a pet stating age/type/breed.
YES! You should consider taking out contents insurance to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The Deposit normally equates to 5 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme and will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition without any claim for potential damages beyond fair wear and tear.
As a tenant you are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid in full and on time. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order which will mean payments are paid directly from your bank to our designated account. You will need to cancel the standing order before leaving the property.
Utility bills, including Council Tax is your responsibility unless stated otherwise in the tenancy agreement. You will need to choose your supplier upon moving in and ensure accounts are closed when you vacate.
Once the Landlord has agreed to accept your application (subject to references and contract) we will ask for a holding deposit equating to one week’s rent. Upon successfully passing the referencing stage of the application, the holding deposit paid will count towards the total balance of rent and deposit owed before the tenancy start date. You risk losing your deposit in the event you provide inaccurate or misleading information on your application, fail a right to rent check, do not all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement or unilaterally withdraw your application.
Very friendly and helpful with all the knowledge about the property we viewed.
Greens Letting were managing the property I've been living in for 6 years (this is perhaps the reasons why I stayed in the house for so long). Our issue request were always dealt with timely manner based on priorities. Yes, the agent was running late in some occasions but we were always notified so, but are we always on time? Unfortunately, the landlord decided to sell the property and change the letting agency and trust me, you have no idea what's being managed by a bad agent. I totally recommend Greens, mainly for their friendliness, great communication and professionalism! Monica
I recently viewed a property which was listed by greens lettings. I asked to move the appointment to an earlier time as it would be more convenient for me and the agent very kindly made an effort to get to me earlier. After viewing the property, the agent gave me a lift to my next viewing!!! Which was so wonderfully generous of her as I was running late. She was so helpful throughout the whole process, answering any questions that I had about the property and referencing process. I decided to go ahead as I love the property and they have been the most efficient agency I’ve ever dealt with whilst going through the referencing process! I move in this weekend and I’m very excited! Would highly recommend.
I have rented a room from Greens for just under a year now and honestly can’t complain about anything. The few staff I’ve met have been very polite helpful and nice and a few days ago I was contacted to ask if a gardener could attend and gain access to the garden which I only have access too, this was a pleasant surprise as since the spring the garden had become really overgrown with weeds etc and without me even having to inform Greens they were clearly aware of this and had arranged for it to be cleared. Which was done completely 👍
Couldn't recommend Greens more! Done business with them as a landlord for a few years, they helped me through the licensing process and thereafter run the property for me in a highly professional manner! Do not remember one single tenant to not have been happy with the agent.
I am a landlord and have been with Greens Lettings for over 7 years now and never considered changing even once. Greens are great at communication, very professional and knowledgeable, plus they always add a personal touch and give a very good advise. Would (and have) always recommend them to other landlords.
I have been with Greens for over 3 years, I have always found staff to be helpful and responsive. When my previous landlord served eviction notices, Greens helped me quickly find another property in my price range and area. It was a smooth process, they waived the usual admin fees and were happy to help me without needing to go through the whole background checking process, which was a massive relief for me as I have an IVA plan which can make renting difficult. I would happily work with Greens again
Good agency. Absolutely professional, approachable and competent. I would rent anytime again.
Very friendly staff. Thought it was to taking ages for their approval of my room reservation. But they were very professional and fast. Really happy. I made the right decision renting with them.
My experience with Green Lettings has been extremely pleasant, with them having a quick turnaround and always being very helpful.
Due to COVID-19, was only with Greens Lettings for less than a year, but it has been a thoroughly great experience with them. When I couldn't travel down to collect my belongings, we arranged the cleaner to box up everything for my friend to collect on my behalf. Friendly, responsive and great understanding of circumstances. Quick communication with them throughout. Great price for the room too. Would highly recommend renting with them in the future.
Great experience in letting some of my rooms through Greens Lettings. Very impressed with the quality of service, would definitely recommend them.
