Let us find you the perfect property to suit your needs, with the minimum fuss and maximum care.

Finding a property to rent in Cambridge

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and the accommodation you require. We’ll search our database for suitable properties for you to view. You can view our available properties using the search function on the right of the screen. You don't need to register to search. To be emailed suitable properties please register with us. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the nicer properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if all parties are in agreement.

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.

Fees to tenants

Upon reserving a property, applicants will be required to pay our agency fee as follows:

First applicant: £150. Subsequent applicants and/or any guarantor: £75. These charges cover our referencing and admin costs. We do not charge VAT. These charges are non-refundable.

In addition to the above charges, you will be required to pay a Holding Deposit (Reservation Deposit). This is usually a minimum of £200. Providing the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the first month’s rent and the tenancy deposit, which are due before you move in (see below).

In the event that the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, this will be refunded to you in full.

However, the holding deposit will be non-refundable 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 requirement we will need satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report.

We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. 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 and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your landlord's bank account.

Deposit

A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be provided with the appropriate prescribed information and receive details regarding the scheme used. 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.
