Moving to or within London can be traumatic.
Let our understanding consultants offer you friendly unbiased advice on the widest range of properties you will find anywhere. When you have found a property with us, we will undertake to do everything we can to ensure a smooth move in and trouble free tenancy.
Our aim is to calm your anxiety by ensuring a smooth and positive move. We require the following from all applicants: Copies of Passport(s), Proof of National Insurance Number, credit reference, employer's reference (students will need a guarantee) previous Landlords Refernce, one months rent and five weeks deposit to be paid in cleared funds before you move in. Rent is paid per calendar month.
If a rental is quoted at a weekly rate, the monthly rent is arrived by multiplying the weekly rent by 52 weeks and dividing by 12 months. Contracts are for a minimum period of 6 months. The building is covered under the landlord's insurance policy. You, as the tenant, may wish to insure your own belongings and contents separately. You will be responsible for all other bills in respect of the property. You must ensure that meter readings are taken and all utilities are transferred into your name.
Copies of a passport(s) and proof of national insurance number for each tenant are required to follow the new "Right to Rent" Scheme set out by Goverment.

"Considering this was my first rented property with 1st Choice Properties, I must say the level of service was tremendous. Our property agent was always able to help us throughout our entire tenancy, even during outside of office hours. Communication was clear and consistent and everything was explained very well to us from the beginning. Highly recommended!"
