Then fill in your details as requested.

If approved for a property, you will then have 24 hours to secure it by paying a holding deposit - our team will give you further details on this.
Properties are sometimes leased very quickly..... in some cases the day we commence marketing the home. You may even find they are leased before you get time to submit your application. Why is this the case? We expedite the application process so we can minimise disappointment to all tenants looking at the property. Despite our best efforts to prevent this frustration (which we often share), it may be unavoidable.
Sometimes your application may be held up.... whilst we always process applications as quickly as possible, there can be delays. This can be due to a number of reasons - the number of applications we have received for the property, we may be waiting for final approval from the owner or to confirm a reference. We do genuinely understand the frustration of house hunting, so we will try to minimise the waiting time for you if we can.
