Renting with Cooksleys Letting Agents in Exeter




Once I Have Viewed a Property and Wish to Proceed What Do I Do Next?

  • Complete a reference form for each person over 18 wishing to take the tenancy providing us with your passport so that we can take a copy
  • The fee for this is £75 inclusive of VAT per person which is non refundable
  • The reference company will check your credit history, your current landlord (if applicable) and your employers which includes the right to rent checks, this will differ on what you need to provide based on whether you are a European Citizen or come from outside of the EU
  • We then take the property off the market while we wait for the references to clear

Once References Have Come Back Clear

  • We will contact you to agree a move in date and ask that you pay the first month’s rent as a holding deposit within 7 days of references clearing
  • We arrange a convenient date for your move in and start to draw up the necessary paperwork

What Documents Do I Need to Complete My Tenancy Application and Move in to the Property?

  • ID for all parties, one being photographic (i.e. passport or photo driving license) and also a document showing your current address (ie. utility bill, bank statement etc.) with the completed application form. The ID will differ depending on whether you are from inside Europe or outside of Europe

How Much Deposit Do I Pay?

  • Before we hand over the keys we ask for a damage deposit equivalent to one month’s rent which we register with a Government Agency. This is then refunded at the end of your tenancy provided the property is left in a clean and undamaged state

Are There Any Other Charges?

  • The only other charge is £70 inclusive of VAT per applicant for administration this is for the drawing up of the tenancy agreement etc. and other related paperwork.
