Tenants

Our Service

Our service is fully comprehensive and includes accompanied viewings of your selected properties until you have identified your future home.

 

. We will provide you with all the necessary details about the property and a standard contract will be drawn up between you and the landlord for your mutual protection.


You can be assured that all essentials, such as electricity, gas, and water are made available prior to your occupation and for the duration of your tenancy we are at your disposal to resolve any problems which may occur.


At the end of the tenancy, we will also ensure that the process of vacating the property is as smooth and free from worry as possible.

 

Costs

The amount of rent you pay monthly will depend on which property you choose to rent.


In addition to the amount of rent you pay each month, there are a few things that need to be paid before you can move into your new home. These things are:

  • Administrative fee
    £150 for a single application
    £180 for a joint application or if a guarantor is needed
    (Application fees for tenants are non- refundable)
  • One month’s rent as a deposit
    (you get this back when you eventually leave the property, as long as the property is left in good condition)
  • One month’s rent in advance

 

Housing Benefit

Happy Homes have experienced staff to help out all applicants on housing benefits. We help with all of the paperwork i.e.; applying for Housing Benefits, Appeals, Suspension of Housing Benefit and all other queries.
