Tenants

Just Lets @ Bristol are very conscious that as a tenant looking for property, possibly in a new area, can be very stressful so we are pleased to provide a helpful, efficient and friendly service. If you are looking to rent in Bristol and surroundings, speak to us first.

When we have found you a property that meets your requirements we will ask for a deposit in return for taking the property off the market. We ask for employer and previous landlord reference, as applicable. Once this is complete we produce the Tenancy Agreement and set up a bank standing order.

The contract you will generally sign is called an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and this provides in law a fixed period of six or 12 months tenancy after which the Tenant can give 1 months notice (from 5th month) and the Landlord is required to give 2 months notice (from 4th month). If all parties agree, a second six or even 12 month agreement can be negotiated or simply progress on a monthly basis.

On the day the tenancy commences we must have received 1 months rent in advance, together with the deposit (One months rent) plus the balance of any outstanding fees, our fee is 35% of one months rent . All such monies must be cleared funds, i.e. cash, banker’s draft or cleared Building Society cheque. Advance arrangement can be made to pay bank to bank.

The dilapidation deposit is held by Just Lets @ Bristol as a fully bonded and approved Stakeholder under TDS, therefore you can be assured your money is safe and protected. The deposit is fully refundable to you at the end of the tenancy providing the property is returned clean and in the original state, as per the inventory. When you first move into the property we ask that you check the details of the inventory very carefully. It is this document that will be compared to the property at the end of the tenancy.

We can also arrange contents insurance for your furniture and other personal belongings. Please let us know if you require this service.
