    Finding a rental property
    Berkshire,Middlesex,Surrey and now Wiltshire.
    The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available for rent. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer rental properties are viewed and reserved quickly. We regret that we cannot assist dss claimants. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months.

    Other Areas
    If you are looking for a property to rent outside Berkshire,Middlesex,Surrey and Wiltshire, please go to our UK Network page.

    Viewings
    Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

    Reserving the property
    Once you have decided on a property to rent, you will need to reserve it by paying a 'holding deposit', usually equivalent to one week's rent. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, a proportion will be refunded. However the deposit will be completely forfeit if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

    References
    As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

    Rents
    Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity,Contents Insurance, Telephone costs and Inventory check-out fees. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

    Deposit
    A security deposit of a minimum of one and a half month's rental must be paid, and will be held by ourselves as stakeholders in a secure client account throughout the tenancy term. This 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.

    Fees
    At Acorns Lettings we believe in complete transparency regarding our fees meaning you donít have to worry about any hidden extras along the way.We charge a letting fee of £96.00 and £69 per applicant to cover administration and referencing costs, a proportion of which may be refunded if the tenancy does not proceed.
