You can find your next rental property from the comfort of your own home.
Create a Profile
Simply, build your FREE profile (click here to register) for potential landlords to see when you enquire or apply for a property. Your profile includes information about you, previous landlord references, employment verification and a supporting guarantor to your tenancy - all of which support your application and make you a valuable tenant. By filling in these sections, you will be saving up to £300 in referencing and application fees, this only needs to be done once and you are ready to go!
We have always said that tenants shouldn't pay any fees, and we are happy the government has taken a stance against banning the fees. By using brightLET, you can upload your own credit report which will support your profile when applying for future properties. This will show landlords you are a highly valuable tenant. We highly recommend that you use one of these free services, such as Noddle and ClearScore to download your report. Alternatively, there are paid services, such as Equifax or Experian to get your credit report.
Find a Rental Property
Our smart facility helps you find your next rental property with ease. We will send you free matching alerts whenever a property is available that matches your property requirements. The search criteria includes up to 3 preferred locations of your choice, and the amount of bedrooms and property type you require. The website also has a search a property section, that enables you to find properties in your local area.
When searching or viewing a property, you can check if a landlord is a member of an association or a professional body. The chances are, that this type of landlord is very professional and great to be letting out a property with as they are more likely to abide by all rules around letting out their property. Not to forget that this type of landlord will be following a code of practise or rule set out by these professional bodies and organisations.
Local Property Amenities
Even though a landlord will provide enough information about their property and local information, we go the extra mile to provide you with local information such as the closest schools, restaurants, health care and food stores. If you are happy with this property you can simply apply for it and then sit back and wait for the landlord to get back to you.
Book Your Viewings
If a landlord is happy with your profile and likes your application, a landlord will send you a booking date/time for a property viewing. You are dealing directly with the landlord, so chances are you will quickly get a booking date arranged to view your preferred choice of properties.
After you have applied for the property, you can communicate with your prospective landlord at any time, saving all the needless phone calls and SMS messages. The other benefit this holds is, all communication is in one location, which you can refer back to when required.
Create Tenancy Agreement
Once you have viewed your property and your prospective landlord is happy with you, you will be sent a tenancy agreement online to proof-read and accept. We do highly recommend you proof-read the tenancy agreement before agreeing to any terms set out by the landlord. That's all it is, happy letting out and start to your journey - register today by clicking here!
