The Renting Process

If you’ve rented a property before, you probably know what happens during the renting process,
but in case you’ve forgotten or you’re a first time tenant here’s a quick summary of what happens.
  • 1. Before You Start

    Before you start, make sure you have some money set aside. To move in you will need to pay the first month’s rent, a deposit and some fees. Speak to us about what you’re looking for and we can give you a rough total figure.

  • 2. Find a Property

    Find that property! Look on our website as well as the usual portals and talk to one of our advisers to let them know what you want. Property moves very quickly, so talk to us first.

  • 3. Come into our Office

    Once you’ve found the property, let us know and then come into our offices to start the application process and reserve the property.

  • 4. Complete the Application

    If you want to complete the application process in one visit, don’t forget identity papers, money for fees, bank details etc so that you have all the information we need. Ring before you come in so we can check you’ve got everything to hand . You’ll need to pay us a fee to process your application – for details see below.

  • 5. Landlord Recommendation

    We will then process your application, including taking credit and other references, confirming the rent and deposit, and taking your application fee. Once this is done and we have all the information back, we will recommend you to the landlord.

  • 6. Tenancy Agreement

    When the landlord has accepted, we will draw up the tenancy agreement for you and get all the paperwork ready for signing.

  • 7. Move in!

    Finally, you’ll come in and check through and sign the tenancy agreement. You’ll need to pay the deposit and first months rent, and then you’ll be ready to go. On the move in date, come and collect your keys and we’ll check you in!

  • “Really helpful and friendly agents, especially Peter and Paige, who have helped make my relocation from Leeds to Littlehampton super easy and fast. They’ve also kept me updated and provided excellent advice throughout. Thanks!”

  • “Alexander Philips and Paige in particular have been the best and most helpful and responsive agency I’ve ever dealt with.

    I rented through them at the same property for just over year and there have been a few problems throughout but both the landlord and Alexander Phillips were always been extremely quick to respond and resolve the matters, and keep me informed.

    I would recommend them without the slightest bit of hesitation,  they’ve always been there for me, from viewing all the way through to receiving my deposit back! Definitely a 5* company!!!”
