Renting a Property with Stocks


Be the first to know of property coming onto the market and register your details with Stocks and Co.  A home in a key location with an attractive rental price does not stay on the market very long.  You’ll be kept up to speed by a call, text or email so be sure we’ll be helping you to find the right property.  So, let us know your requirements, your budget, the location, the facilities you need to be near to,  how much space you need, whether you’d like some garden and parking, we’ll do our best to find exactly what you’re looking for.  Once you’ve chosen a property, we’ll deal with all the paperwork and have you moving in as soon as we can.  We’ll be on hand throughout your tenancy to help with any queries you may have.


The Process


Ok, so you’ve found the right property for you – what happens next ?


Fill in your application form, bring it to the office together with photographic ID for each person over the age of 18 (passport OR identity card OR driving licence & birth certificate) and proof of address, this can be in the form of a utility bill, bank statement, mobile phone statement, but it must be no more than 3 months old.   Once we have all of your paperwork in, we’ll start the referencing process – this usually takes no more than 3 working days – then we prepare your Tenancy Agreement ready for signature.  You’ll be kept up to speed throughout the process so that you can make the necessary plans towards your move.


On the day of check in, we will meet you at the property at a pre-arranged time – it’s wise to set aside 30 minutes or so as there’ll be information that you need to know about the property, meters, instructions, etc. You’ll also receive an email with an access link to your documents online so that you can view them at any time


The Inventory will need to be signed and returned to us within 7 days – make sure you spend some time going through the Inventory and feel free to add any comments that you think are relevant.


Let us know if you’d like to receive competitive rates for your utility bills. Our referencing company ‘Vouch’ work with a utility company called (Utilitease). They search across the whole market to find you the best deal.


Any person over the age of 18 MUST be listed on the Tenancy Agreement and referenced.
