The friendly team at Dwellings will guide you the process offering practical, financial and legal guidance, accommodating your specific requirements (like parking and pets) to make sure you get the property that’s right for you.

Helping with the details

We’ve been helping people just like you find their perfect rental property for more than 20 years so we’re confident we can answer your questions and queries from a removals service to understanding who (you or your landlord) is responsible for what at the property.

Once you’ve moved in

A happy house = a happy tenant (and a happy landlord), so once you’ve moved in we’ll work our socks off to make sure that if something does go wrong it’s sorted out as quickly as possible.

Tenant Referencing & holding deposits

Before offering you a tenancy we will apply for references, complete credit checks & right to rent checks.
You will pay a holding deposit equivalent to 1 weeks rent.

When signing for your tenancy you will pay 1 months’ rent in advance and a deposit equivalent to 5 weeks rent.

Please note: if your references/credit checks are not acceptable or you withdraw your application your holding deposit is non-refundable.

We are members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme & UKALA
Our client’s money protection is provided by UKALA
