I WANT TO RENT A PROPERTY

We always have on offer a wide range of properties to rent to reliable tenants

Dowen offers properties to rent on the basis where either

  • We act as the landlord's managing agent with us as the tenant's point of contact
  • We find a suitable reliable tenant for a landlord and the landlord himself becomes the tenants's point of contact

Once a tenant has chosen a property he/she would like to rent we commence our application process

WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY FOR A PROPERTY

To apply for a property proposing tenants and any guarantors are required to

Complete an application form

Then provide us with the following for all applicants and guarantors

  • Proof of identity and if necessary proof of residency
  • Personal references
  • Up to date bank statements
  • 3 latest salary slips
  • Proof of payments to previous tenancies or mortgages
  • Any other information we request thereafter

WHAT DO I PAY ON APPLICATION FOR A PROPERTY

You pay to us one week's rent as a HOLDING DEPOSIT

This is calculated as 1 MONTHS RENT X 12 / 52

Terms and Conditions Regarding Payment Of A Holding Deposit

  • If We Approve Your Tenancy And You Proceed With The Rental, The Holding Deposit Will Become Part Payment Towards Your Initial Rent
  • If We Approve Your Tenancy And You Do Not Proceed With The Rental, The Holding Deposit Will Be Retained, By Dowen
  • If We Reject Your Tenancy Application, The Holding Deposit Will Be Returned To You, In Full

WHAT DO I PAY ON MOVE IN

Before a property is occupied a tenant will be required to pay

  • A minimum of 1 months rent (Any holding deposit paid, will contribute towards this)                               
  • A bond/damages deposit. This usually a minimum of 1 month's rent

WHAT DO I PAY ON MOVE OUT

We charge no fees to tenants on move out

However you will be reponsible for the cost of putting right any, damage, required cleaning, replacements, etc
