Tenant

We do not charge tenants any moving in fees when you rent a property through Yooodle. We will require a reservation deposit equivalent to one week's rental prior to your offer being submitted, if your offer is not accepted by our client and you decide to withdraw, your reservation deposit will be refunded in full.

Please be aware of our Terms and Conditions before signing our Tenancy Application Form, should you withdraw from your application after your offer has been accepted, you provide false or misleading information, or your referencing is declined without providing a suitable guarantor(s) the reservation deposit will not be refunded.

If your offer is accepted, the reservation deposit will be credited towards the remaining move in costs below:

Rent Payments
The first month’s payment of rent must be paid in cleared funds prior to signing the tenancy agreement. Rent is payable by standing order which must arrive as cleared funds on the due date as stated in the tenancy agreement. It is advisable to setup your standing order three days before rent is due. We can only accept one standing order for the total amount of rent.

Tenancy Deposit
A deposit equivalent to five weeks rent must be paid in cleared funds prior to signing your tenancy agreement. This amount will be equivalent to six weeks rent should the rental value be more than £50,000.00 per annum. The deposit, if held by Yooodle will be as Stakeholder under The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) for the duration of the tenancy in accordance with the scheme rules.

Any deductions must be agreed in writing by both landlord and tenant upon the termination of the tenancy. The tenancy agreement entered into is between the landlord and the tenant and therefore, the tenant cannot hold Yooodle liable for any deductions made from the deposit which may fall into dispute. Any interest earned on the deposit shall be retained by either Yooodle (if we are holding the deposit) or the landlord.

Stamp Duty Land Tax
This tax is payable on tenancies where the rent exceeds £125,000 PA. Please contact HMRC for further information.

All is not lost, we can still save you the tenant fees. Our database is extremely extensive, we can contact the owner directly to get you booked in. Many tenants contact us as with the property information as this route is very common with tenants who are looking to save money.
Proof of Identity:

According to the law, applicants for a rental property must be aged over 18 and be a legal UK resident. Like any other legal transaction, proof of identity and current address is required and verified before any more detailed discussions take place. This can come in the form of:

  • Photo ID (such as a valid passport or driving licence)
  • An official letter dated within the last three months (such as a utilities or tax bill)
  • An Electoral Register entry
  • If coming from abroad, a copy of your UK visa and associated documents allowing you to rent in the UK will also be required


Proof of Employment and Earnings:


While renting a property as a self-employed individual or freelancer is possible, it’s more straightforward if you are in full-time employment and can prove your position is stable. You will need to provide proof of your employer and what you do earn, such as:

  • Recent pay slips for the last three – six months
  • A letter from your employer confirming your job title, salary and contract length
  • A current employment contract
  • A tax return for the most recent tax year


References:

As well as running a credit check on potential tenants, it’s likely that your potential landlord or estate agent will require references to confirm your identity, employment and character. Some of these can be obtained in writing, but it’s best to prime your referees when you begin the house-hunting process so they are aware and will not be surprised by a phonecall or email to confirm some of the details you have supplied. References from a previous landlord are always helpful, although sometimes not possible if you had a difficult relationship or left the property on bad terms. In that case, proof of a previous tenancy agreement and rent receipts to show timely payments might be sufficient. Proof that you had a full deposit refunded is also helpful for confirming your behaviour as a tenant.

  • Reference from a previous landlord, stating that payment was timely and that you are a trustworthy tenant
  • Reference from an employer, confirming both your employment and character
  • Reference from a friend or colleague confirming your character
A tenancy guarantor guarantees rent payments and other tenancy obligations that make up the tenancy agreement. Legally, tenancy guarantors are said to stand surety. Whilst a guarantor must be at least 18, they can come from any walk of life and can have different relationships with a tenant.

Whilst the guarantor pays the landlord the rent if the tenant defaults, guarantors would also have to cover the costs and losses, expenses or damages, experienced by a landlord should the tenant fail to cover the costs.
We will put your deposit in a government-backed deposit protection scheme:

Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS)

You will get your deposit back if you:

  • Meet the terms of your tenancy agreement
  • Don’t damage the property
  • Pay your rent and bills
By the time you get around to checking-into your new property you will have already completed the following: tenancy application form, credit checks and referencing.

All tenants should be present at the rental property for the check-in so that everything is agreed and signed in one go.

At this point we will walk around the whole property, inside and outside with you to make sure you agree with the inventory and condition statements.

The following will be checked off and recorded:

– Meter readings
– Test alarm settings, batteries and codes
– Keys and locks
– Stop taps, isolator switches and fuses
– All appliances working
– Signing the inventory and tenancy agreement
The tenancy agreement is a contract between you and your landlord. It may be written or oral. The tenancy agreement gives certain rights to both you and your landlord, for example, your right to occupy the accommodation and the landlord’s right to receive rent for letting the accommodation.

You and your landlord may have made arrangements about the tenancy, and these will be part of the tenancy agreement as long as they do not conflict with law. Both you and your landlord have rights and responsibilities given by law. The tenancy agreement can give both you and your landlord more than your statutory rights, but cannot give you less than your statutory rights. If a term in the tenancy agreement gives either you or your landlord less than your statutory rights, that term cannot be enforced.

A tenancy agreement can be made up of:-

  • Express terms - These include what is in the written tenancy agreement, if there is one, in the rent book, and/or what was agreed orally
  • Implied terms - These are rights given by law or arrangements established by custom and practice.
The first month’s payment of rent must be paid in cleared funds prior to signing the tenancy agreement. Rent is payable by standing order (unless agreed otherwise) which must arrive as clear funds on the due date as stated on the tenancy agreement. It is advisable to setup your standing order three days before rent is due. We can only accept one standing order for the total amount of rent due.
In certain circumstances we may ask you to provide a guarantor. We are only able to accept one guarantor per applicant for checking the references of the guarantor and the preparation of the guarantor agreement. Any guarantor will need to reside in the UK, be in full time employment, be a property owner and pass a reference check. If we ask for a guarantor as a poor result of a reference check on you then any failure to provide a suitable guarantor who satisfies the above conditions on your part will be deemed a withdrawal of application and you will lose your holding deposit.
Prior to your move in date you will be notified of who is managing the property, if it is directly with the landlord you will be emailed their details to contact them directly. If Yooodle is managing your property, your dedicated property manager will be in touch. 
Right to Rent is required for any occupants aged 18 or over who are using the property as their only or main home. We will need you to provide evidence of your rights to remain the UK. If you are born within the EEA your passport satisfies this request, if you are outside of the EEA your visa confirmation and passport will be required.

Failure to comply will result in your application being a Withdrawn, forfeiting your Holding Deposit.
You can contact us by using our chat facility which is manned by real people 24 hours a day. Alternatively, if you would like to talk to your Property Manager please call them on 0203 196 1910.
