In this section, we will take details about anyone who will be moving with you and find out more about you as tenants. It is important this section is answered honestly.

Will there be any other tenants named on the tenancy agreement?
Will anybody else be moving with you not named on the tenancy?pick one!
Will anyone be staying with you regularly?(eg. children at the weekend)
Are all tenants in paid employment?
Do any tenants or anyone moving with you claim benefits?
Do you or anyone moving with you have any adverse credit history?
Do you or anyone moving with you have any county court judgements?
Do you or anyone moving with you have any pets?
Do you or anyone moving with you have any spent or unspent criminal convictions?
Would you be willing to re-home your pets or pay insurance against pet damage?We may offer an increased rent instead of re-homing your pets or paying for insurance. This is at the landlord's discretion. We hate to put tenants in a position where they need to consider this but this is the result of the Tenant Fees Act 2019 - please voice any grievances about this with your local MP.
For any tenancy to go ahead, we will require the first month's rent payable in advance, can you afford to and will you pay this?
If we offer you a tenancy, would you rather pay a deposit equivalent to 5 weeks rent or pay for a nil deposit scheme?Nil deposit schemes usually cost the equivalent of 1 or 2 weeks rent per year (subject to eligibility)

Please be advised that any tenancy deposits you pay belongs to you and is protected in a government-approved custodial scheme (unless where advised otherwise) whereas a nil deposit scheme (also referred to as deposit replacement insurance, deposit replacement scheme or flatbond) is a product you purchase instead of paying the five-week tenancy deposit. There is a cost for the nil-deposit scheme which is non-refundable however, we do offer a no-cost option for you which is to pay a tenancy deposit equivalent to five weeks.

If required, I will be able to provide details of a suitable guarantor who meets affordability requirements and who is a homeowner to support my application.
