Once you have seen a property with us that you would like to rent, we ask you to complete an application form and lodge a holding deposit. Until you have done this, we are unable to put your offer to the landlord so it is important to return the form and deposit as quickly as possible.
The application form gives you a full breakdown of the costs, explains the conditions of the tenancy and asks you to provide us with some background information so that we can tell the landlord about you.
The holding deposit is £400 and is fully refundable should the landlord not accept your offer for any reason If your offer is accepted then it will be put towards your first month’s rent. Once your offer has been accepted the holding deposit becomes non-refundable and the property is taken off the market.
To ensure that you meet the criteria laid down by our preferred independent referencing agency, please ensure that you meet each of the requirements below:
If you fulfil the requirements above, please click on the following link to download the application form. Please return the completed application form to your property consultant or to email@example.com. The Holding Deposit can be paid via bank transfer and the account details are given on page 1 of the application form. Please ensure that you quote the property address in the payment reference and start the reference with 'HD' (e.g. if the property address is 91 Acre Lane, use reference HD91ACRELANE).

If you do not meet the criteria above you may have two alternative options:
A guarantor is someone that is willing to sign an agreement which states that they will meet the financial obligations set out in the tenancy should you not be able to.
Guarantors are usually friends or family members and to be suitable they must meet the full criteria given above and they must be a permanent resident in the United Kingdom. If you wish to make an application that includes a guarantor, please use the following application form:

"I have used Beresford Residential to let several properties. All the staff are friendly, keen, helpful and professional. Since using them I have not used any other agent and I will continue to use them as long as the service is excellent. They listen to what you are looking for in a tenant give you a realistic expectation of rent and give advise on anything to increase the rent or marketability of the property. The property management team (Karl) are also excellent in providing references and liaising with in regards to conditions. I would highly recommend any private landlord who out-sources their property management to use Beresford Residential as they are experienced, knowledgeable and have great contractors at their disposal."
