2. Let Us Find Your Property

We’ll use your information to search for property on our database that may suit. We’ll also upload your information to our tenant search page where landlords who have property to rent can see your profile. Don’t worry they cant see any confidential information like phone numbers etc but if they are looking for a tenant and have a property in your search area they can contact us to see if they are a match.

We’ll find out the relevant information on the property and let you know if it may be suitable. We can then arrange viewings accompanied by a member of the team and take it from there.

3 – How to Apply

You will need to provide us with the following documents

  • Completed application form for each occupant over the age of 18
  • - Accompanying ID including Passport (Current or expired). If you do not have a passport we will ask for other documents to confirm identity to comply with Right to Rent checks which are a legal requirement. These can consist of birth certificate, a current full or provisional drivers licence etc, a letter dated within the last 3 months by a UK government department showing the holders name etc. A full list can be viewed here.

Charges to tenants

Dourish and Day charge no tenancy application, administration, credit check, inventory or legal document fees as per The Tenant Fees Act 2019. The tenant is expected to pay rent as per the terms of the tenancy agreement and a deposit prior to moving into a property. 

A holding deposit of no more than 1 weeks rent will be requested and a date by which the agreement needs to be completed will be set when you apply to rent a property. In the event that the deadline for the agreement is not met the holding deposit will become refundable unless one of the events listed in Schedule 2 of the Tenant Fees Act 2019 occurs. 

Dourish and Day reserve the right to charge during the tenancy where the tenant fails a contractual obligation or breaches the terms of the tenancy, for example the replacement of lost keys or missed contractor appointments. A draft tenancy agreement will be made available to all tenants to review prior to a holding deposit being taken which details your contractual obligations.

We are members of The Propertymark Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme which provides compensation to landlords, tenants and other clients should an agent misappropriate their rent, deposit or other client funds
