Viewings / Pre Screening and Referencing
Before we can offer you a viewing a pre-referencing credit check will be undertaken to ensure no adverse credit that may affect an application for a tenancy.
In order to do this, we require your consent (by return email), with the full name(s) of all of the proposed Tenants, mobile numbers and email addresses. We will submit this information to Rightmove (RLTS) who will then contact you to complete their form and enable them to carry out the pre-referencing credit check immediately. Viewings will be offered on a first come first serve basis.
If having viewed the property, you wish to make an application it shall be subject to full referencing to include:
- Affordability – confirmation of employment. If you are self-employed this could include an Accountants reference and 3 months personal Bank Statements showing evidence of income.
- Landlords reference
- Right to Rent Check (to complete this Neal Associates Ltd will need to see the original documents and to have met each applicant in person).
All of the above is undertaken by Rightmove (RLTS).
Neal Associates Ltd will require:
- Proof of Identify (Passport or Photo Driving Licence) – we require the original to make a certified copy which will be kept on our files and have to meet you in person, this can be done at the time of viewing the property if you wish to proceed to an application for a tenancy.
- Proof of Residency for each applicant: (proof of residency means two original and different documents such as Bank Statement, utility bill, council tax bill, telephone bill etc with the applicant’s name and current address on. The documents must not be older than 3 months, or the most recent version if issued less frequently).
We require our Neal Associates application forms to completed and returned to us within 48 hours (excluding weekends) and will agree with you a mutually acceptable completion date (subject to satisfactory references) for the tenancy at the start of the application process. These forms will be given to you at the point of agreeing to commence formal Full Referencing.
