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.
An example of our standard tenancy agreement can be found here.

"I have been a private landlord for 15 years and always let and managed the property myself. 5 years ago we moved away from London so that letting the property became quite difficult with expensive trips to and from London for viewings etc. I had used Gumtree with decreasing success. I received an email from Misty Dowson regarding a lettings promotion Beresford ResidentialÂ were running. The flat went on the market at the beginning of December last year. BeresfordÂ ResidentialÂ were instructed at the end of February as the flat had been vacant for 3 months and they had found tenants by the second week of March. BeresfordResidentialÂ achieved a rental increaseÂ of 17.5% andÂ I was absolutely thrilled and extremely impressed by Misty's professional, efficient and expedient service. Once the let had been agreed, Karl Reynolds took over where Misty had left off. The join was seamless and Karl, like Misty, showed the same excellent level of service. In fact, he went beyond his remit dealing with a management issue that was not covered under the agreement that I had with them taking the standard of service to a whole new level. I would not hesitate to recommend BeresfordÂ ResidentialÂ 100% to any landlords looking to take the hassle out of letting and despite 15 years of promising never to pay an agent to let my property, feel pretty confident that when the time comes to relet the flat I will be instructing them again. 5/5 Stars"
