Tenant Services`

Who, how, why & When?

As a tenant looking for a property to rent from us, we understand there is a lot of information to take on board, especially if you are a first time renter ! Therefore we have put the below as an easy to read guide on ow to rent a property from us and what to expect costs wise.

Here is an example of a property that’s renting at £850pcm.

So first you have viewed the property after getting an appointment confirmed from Power Property Management.

If you then would like to offer on the property, you would send us an email with the address of the property in the subject line EG 123 St John Street Ipswich & send this to info@powerproperty.co.uk  

Once confirmed by the Landlord that they have accepted your offer, we will then ask you to make a payment to us called a holding fee, (equivalent to 1 weeks rent)

To calculate this, based on the property above £850 x 12 = £10,200 / 52 weeks = £196.15

Once this fee is then taken from you, we will remove the property from the market and nobody else will be able to view it or offer on it.

About 7 days before your expected move in date that we agree between all parties, you will then pay the balance of the deposit (remaining 4 weeks) which will be 4 x £196.15 = £784.60, add this onto the 1 week holding fee gives us 5 weeks deposit paid at a total of £980.75. This deposit is then transferred to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme

You will be provided with a certificate of where your deposit is held and a reference number for you to keep safe.

2-3 days before your planned move in date, you will then pay your 1st months rent in advanced. So lets assume you move in on the 1st of the month, your first months rent in advance would need to be paid by at least 29/30th of the previous month. Your next rent payment date then will be the 1st of each month going forward for as long as your tenancy remains in place.

While every reasonable effort is made to ensure the accuracy of descriptions and content, we should make you aware of the following guidance or limitations. 

  1. These particulars do not constitute part or all of an offer or contract. 
  2. The text, photographs and plans are for guidance only and are not necessarily comprehensive. 
  3. You should make your own enquiries regarding the property, particularly in respect of furnishings to be included/excluded and what parking facilities are available. 
  4. Before you enter into any tenancy for one of the advertised properties, the condition and contents of the property will normally be set out in a tenancy agreement and inventory. Please make sure you carefully read and agree with the tenancy agreement and any inventory provided before signing these documents.
  5. Money laundering regulations: Prospective tenants will be asked to produce identification documentation during the referencing process and we would ask for your co-operation in order that there will be no delay in agreeing a tenancy. 
  6. Once a holding fee is received the property will be taken off the market and kept for you while the referencing checks take place.
  7. These checks will be carried out in 24 hours, or as fast as you can submit your info.
  8. Upon success of being offered the property, you will be required to send us the following within 24 hours of accepting – 
    • 3 x months bank statements.
    • 3 x months pay slips.
    • Copy of Id.
    • Copy of utility bill in your name at current address.

I cannot fault the service we received from Hayden. Having dealt with various different letting agencies in our search for a home to rent, Power Property Management was a breath of fresh air! Hayden took the time to listen when I explained our situation (we were living 140 miles away at the time), explained each step of the process and kept us informed at all times. A well earned five stars!

We have been looking for a home for almost 2 years. We looked through all the agencies in Ipswich. Most agencies have no approach to a potential tenant at all 😒 I wish I had found Power Property Management sooner. Every question I had (and there were a lot of them 🤪) got an answer, the answers were very fast (as if they were waiting for my questions 😂). Although at some point we delayed something, they were very patient, politely reminded us. We are very grateful to them. They were the only ones who didn't cross us because we are a big family. After two years of looking for a house, after countless phone calls to various agencies, I can say with a clear conscience, there is no better agency than Power Property Management ! Thanks to you, we are happy again ❤️
