Tenants

Welcome to Luv Plymouth! We are a letting agent specialising in new-build apartments and houses in the Plymouth and surrounding areas.
 
Our aim is to offer a jargon-free service based on facilities that other letting agents do not provide, including weekend and evening viewings, 24/7 assistance and an honest, personal service at competitive rates.

  • £99 referencing fee
  • Deposits registered in DPS scheme

Our step by step guide below will demonstrate how easy it is to move into your new home.

Viewings:
We will carry out viewings at a time to suit you, even during evenings or weekends.

Holding Fee:
If you like the property and want to reserve it, we will ask for a holding deposit of £150 (we take the paperwork to the viewing so that you can reserve the property there and then if you wish). The deposit will then become part of your rent deposit and is refundable against your initial deposit.

We will cancel all further viewings.

Referencing:
We will then carry out referencing for all potential tenants named on the tenancy agreement, which will normally include a current employment reference, current or previous landlord references and a credit check. In some circumstances we may ask for a Guarantor to back up your financial commitments.

The cost of referencing is £99 payable in advance.

Upon receiving satisfactory references, we will agree a convenient move-in date.

Deposit:
Prior to moving in, we require the first month’s rent in addition to a security deposit, which is one month’s rent plus £100 (however we will use the holding fee that you’ve already paid towards this).

The deposit will be registered with the DPS scheme on your behalf. The DPS will email or write to you with a release code for when the tenancy comes to an end, so you need to keep this safe in order to retrieve your deposit swiftly.

Rent Collection:
We will give you our client account bank details so you can set up a standing order for subsequent monthly rental payments. Please ensure that the standing order arrives in our bank account on or before the due date.

Handover:
We will then confirm a suitable move-in date.

Utilities:
We will read all utility meters prior to handover and register the actual readings with the relevant companies. We will also register the Council Tax in your name(s).

It is the standard obligation in all tenancy agreements for the tenant to be responsible for all utility payments (council tax, electric, gas, water, & TV license) so we would advise you to double check all readings as soon as you move in.

Tenancy Agreement:
A tenancy agreement will be prepared for signing, ready for your move-in date. Upon signing, the keys are released on the move in day and the home is yours!

Our standard tenancy agreement is a 6 or 12 month periodic; you are committing to 6 or 12 months and after that the contract becomes rolling, meaning you to give just 1 month’s notice to bring it to an end (according to the terms of the agreement this must happen on the anniversary date).

If you would prefer a longer contract (up to 2 years) then please let us know.

Inventory:
We will visit the property prior to handover and take a detailed photographic inventory that we will hold on file, as well as giving you a copy on CD. It is your responsibility to report any discrepancies within 7 days of receipt.

Inspections:
Periodically and with advance notice we will visit the property to carry out an inspection. This also gives you an opportunity to report any maintenance issues, although if there is anything that is not quite right then please notify us immediately.

Check-Out:
At the end of the tenancy we will inspect the property ensuring that it is returned in the same condition and arrange for all final utility readings and handover of keys. We will also arrange for the return of your deposit.

We do not charge end of tenancy administration charges.

Insurance:
You may want to consider obtaining contents insurance for your personal possessions. We can offer you guidance on this.

A Fresh Approach:
  • We promise a jargon-free, step by step guide for both landlords and tenants in a simple easy to understand format.
  • We will provide you with an out of hours contact number with a human being at the end of the phone!
  • We offer a friendly, personal and professional service to both landlords and tenants.
  • No hidden fees
