The tenant process:

Tenant referencing

Prospective tenants/applicants wanting one of our properties for rent will be discussed with the property Landlord in advance of the referencing process. We will never decide on a tenant on behalf of the Landlord unless they have requested for us to do so.

Should an applicant be acceptable as a tenant by the Landlord (pending satisfactory references being received), then a thorough referencing process will then commence. Scott-Bates & Coles use a top quality independent referencing company that assure all parties of a thorough and time efficient service. Should the references be successful Scott-Bates & Coles continue immediately with the arrangements for the tenancy start date.

The deposit

Scott-Bates & Coles will be responsible for collecting and submitting the tenants deposit to the DPS (Deposit Protection Service). This deposit is refunded at the end of the tenancy as long as the property is found to be in satisfactory condition at the property ‘check out’. In the case of properties managed by the Landlord themselves, the deposit release will be requested once Scott-Bates & Coles have received confirmation from the Landlord that they are happy for us to do so.

N.B. Deposits, by law, have to be submitted to a registered deposit scheme. Landlords may do this themselves as long as they are registered members with such a scheme.

Landlord payment

The first month’s rent is collected by Scott-Bates & Coles. This is due on the tenancy start date (the date stated on the tenancy agreement). Keys are not handed over until cleared funds have been received.

Payment is then made to the Landlord within a maximum of 10 working days from collection, less the agreed agency fee (and any expenses owed if incurred). A statement will be sent to the Landlord showing all rent collected, any property expenses paid, and agreed agency fees deducted.

Arrangements for future Landlord payment is set up by Scott-Bates & Coles. This is usually by means of the tenant creating a standing order into the account provided by the Landlord. Scott-Bates & Coles send this order to the bank on behalf of the Tenant to ensure both parties that it has been done.
