The letting process

The success of our company depends on our ability to perform for you, our client. To succeed we must find you the right property at the right price when you need it. This is what we aim to do. The following is a brief description of each of the steps of the letting process:

Register with us

The first step is to register with Passion for Property by simply calling us. Our experienced lettings negotiators need as much information as possible about the type of property you are looking for and are experts in helping you find your ideal property.

The search begins

With a clear understanding of your requirements, we will compile a selection of properties that match your criteria for you to look at. Also, at your request, we can add you to our Mailing List and instantly alert you as new properties that may interest you become available.


Viewings are accompanied, by appointment and conducted during normal business hours, in the evenings or at weekends.

Selecting a property

Once you've identified a suitable property and supplied us with details of referees, references will be applied for and your information will be forwarded to the landlord for acceptance.

Tenancy agreement

Once the landlord confirms that they would like to proceed we will draw up the relevant paperwork, forming an agreement to be signed by both parties.


An inventory of the contents and condition of the property is produced prior to commencement of the tenancy. This will be supplied to both landlord and tenant.

Rent and deposit

An advance rental payment is required prior to the commencement of the tenancy. A rental deposit is also required. This will be reimbursed to you at the end of the tenancy, subject to the details of your agreement and the findings of the inventory check-out report.


Congratulations, keys are now handed over and you can move in to your new home!
