Example Tenancy Agreement
You can view an example tenancy agreement by clicking here. This agreement would be for a Dafydd Hardy managed property with no Special Conditions. You should always fully review your agreement, and seek legal advice if you wish, before signing.
Gurantors
If a tenant is not fully approved by the referencing process, they can ask a guarantor to support you. A guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) will agree to take joint responsibility for the rent for the property if the tenant fails to. Guarantors are required to pay any rent arrears (if the tenant does not pay) and for any damages costing more than the deposit. They will be required to go through referencing and show an income of 3.5x the rent.
Payment Method
We accept bank transfers which can be done in your bank or via online banking. Personal cheques, debit/credit cards or cash cannot be accepted.
