If you are looking to rent a property KHP are here to help.  The rental market does move quickly so our advice is to make sure you have everything in place so that when you see a property you like you are ready to take it.  You should start looking around 4-6 weeks prior to needing accommodation.  

Once you have a found a property, to move forward and apply for it you will need to complete and KHP application form and supply a form of photos ID (preferably a passport). Please see our “Fees” page for exact details of all permitted payments for a tenant. 

If the landlord is happy with your application you will be asked to lodge a holding deposit equivilant to one week’s rent.  This will hold the property for you whilst our reference checks are conducted.  You will then be required to fill out an online form for our referencing agency.  

The referencing process should take around 3-7 days.  Once completed and signed off by the landlord, we can then agree a moving in date with you, draw up your contract and invite you in to sign.  Full move in money (i.e. first month’s rent and deposit/deposit replacement) must be received before the commencement date. 

The deposit is equal to 5 week’s rent. 

Should a dog or cat be agreed there is an additional rent of £20pcm per pet.

Your tenancy agreement will initially be for 12 months and you will be invited to renew and negotiate any further term thereon.

If you have any additional enquiries please do not hesitate to contact our lettings team.
