The most important thing for tenants to understand is the Letting Process
You will have found Stanford Estates either by a web search, through our boards around Lewisham or via our offices at Forest Hill & Hither Green.
Our stock is constantly changing so we would recommend that if you are looking in the area across Lewisham Borough we are particularly busy in Forest Hill, Honor Oak, Sydenham, Hither Green, Lee, Catford and Lewisham to register your details with the office, thereby with new things coming to the market you will get phone call and email updates when new stock comes to the market.
If you like a property that we are advertising then we will arrange an accompanied appointment at your earliest convenience. If the property is not for you then the negotiators will keep you informed of other properties that will come onto the market.
If you do like a property then we would take an offer from you and negotiate with the Landlord on your behalf. At this point we would like to make sure that we understand your financial situation and may ask some very direct questions.
When your offer is accepted by the Landlord in order to process the tenancy we will require £150 per tenant (anyone over 18 residing in the property) for referencing, admin and tenancy fees. Please note we will need to take a minimum amount of £200 to take the property off the market.
From this point on your file will be looked after the by the negotiator and the administration staff in our offices.
You will be required to sign a contract and forward rent and deposit to us before we are able to release keys to you. We will also need to a copy of your ID to ensure that you are the person on the contract.
If you have a question or require more information regarding renting properties with us please leave us a message.
