This is one of our most frequently asked questions from students, as they’re often new to renting.
Firstly, you should complete a tenancy application form. This doesn’t commit the property owner to give you a tenancy, but we’ll take it off the market and won’t advertise it while we process your application. You’ll also need to complete and return a Guarantor form, and we allow up to 20 working days for you to return your signed forms.
We ask for a holding deposit of one week’s rent to save a place for you which is put towards your 1st month’s rent when it’s time to move in.
After that, we’ll make an appointment for the agreement to be signed, and the property owner or one of the Prolet team will countersign the agreement. As student contracts are often signed months in advance of the tenancy, we won’t ask for the deposit until a month before you move in.
