Tenant's Guide To Renting

Here at AAD's we understand that renting can be a daunting process, especially for those new to the rental market. Whether you’re planning on renting a studio flat or a six bedroomed house, below is the information that you’ll need to get the process under way!!!

Finding Your Right Property

When contacting AAD's you can be confident of a proffessional and friendly service. Whatever your rental needs, we will discuss your requirements with you and arrange a viewing for any of our properties.

Having found a suitable property with us you will need to secure this by putting a holding deposit down this ensures that no more viewings are carried out on the property and is deducted from the final deposit.


Once secured you will be required to complete a Tenancy Application Form and provide proof of your identity and residency. AAD's will then carry out all the necessary references on your behalf. References will be carried out on all tenants and any guarantors. All persons living in the property over the age of 18 must also be referenced as they will need to be named on the tenancy agreement.

All of the information below will be required:


  • 6 Months months bank statements
  • Passport / Driving Licence
  • VISA
  • ID Card

Depending on the outcome of the referencing, will depend on whether you need to provide a guarantor. For example, you may be required a guarantor if your earnings are not high enough, you have recently started a new job or if you have a low credit rating. Your guarantor will be required to undergo the same checks as yourself. They will be expected to pay the rental should there be any default during the tenancy and they will also be held responsible for the upkeep of the property.

Tenancy Agreement

Once all the references have been completed we shall arrange a time and date for you to sign the agreement and collect the keys to your new home. The agreement must be signed by all parties prior to the commencement of the tenancy. Upon signing a month’s rent in advance must be paid along with a deposit.

The Security Deposit

All Landlords and Agents are required by law to register and protect your deposit within a government-approved scheme on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. This means that your security deposit is protected. Aads opt to use the Deposit Protection Service.
