Our aim – provide an outstanding property management service.
Finding a property
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. 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.

Please note that for your safety and peace of mind –
- All of our managed properties are Gas Safe certificated, and inspected for electrical safety, and furniture fire safety
- All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.
NO TENANT FEES !
At the moment, tenants can be charged admin fees such as tenancy renewal fees, referencing fees, credit check etc. These usually amount to £300-£500. At James Morgan we eliminate this by charging no tenant fees whatsoever.
All we ask is you pay the holding deposit on the property you are interested in, this is usually approximately a weeks rent. This holding deposit allows us to take the property off the market and begin the referencing process. The cost of the holding deposit will then be deducted off the first months rent – this is standard procedure for the majority of letting agents.
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.
As a minimum we will require 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 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.
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.
Before you start
Once you find a suitable property there will be a security deposit and a minimum of a months rent will be required up front, so to avoid delays please make sure these costs will not be a problem when they are presented. There are a number of documents that will also be required , such as proof of i.d, proof of address and employment status. Your details will be passed on to an independent referencing company and a full reference will be carried out along with a credit check.
