Looking to Rent?

Our letting department at Unicorn Homes can offer friendly and professional guidance with any queries you may have regarding renting.

Letting Procedure

  • If interested in one of our available properties, call or email us to arrange a suitable time to view the property.
  • If you decide you wish to proceed further after viewing please contact the office to advise as the next step is to commence with our referencing procedure.
  • All prospective tenants are referenced by an outside referencing company – Homelet.
  • In certain circumstances a Guarantor may be required.  Please note that guarantors will be named on the tenancy agreement and will also need to sign the tenancy agreement as well as yourself.
  • If referencing is successful, you will be required to pay the first months rent in advance together with a 6 week deposit when you move into the property.
  • The lease offered is a Private Residential Tenancy agreement (PRT).
  • Please note, as a tenant you will be responsible for all utility accounts including council tax.  The landlord retains responsibility for repairs and compliance with safety regulations.
