Shire Properties are here to help you find your perfect home. We will help you through the process, making your move as stress free as possible.
We only let properties that meet our high standards and ensure that our landlords are fully aware of their legal responsibilities.
Whatever your needs or budget, we will help find the ideal home for you.
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We will then search our database for suitable properties for you to view.
Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends.
Once you have found a property you like, you will need to fill out an application form and pay a ‘holding deposit’.
All of our tenants are fully referenced and credit checked. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor.
Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your landlord’s bank account.
A security deposit of a minimum of one month’s rental will be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be informed of when it has been protected. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
