Here at Bracewells we pride ourselves on providing excellent tenant to all properties. We use Homelet Referencing Sevices to perform all tenants referencing on behalf of Bracewells.
Being a leading market provider, we have a good selection of properties to choose from and, if the calibre of the property you are looking for is not on the market, let us know your exact requirements and one of our team will attempt to source properties to your taste.
With our expert local knowledge and experience of the market, we are able to provide you with advice on locations best suited to your needs.
Your budget is obviously very important and it doesn’t pay to overstretch your finances. The referencing company we use work on the basis of your annual earnings being 30 times the proposed monthly rental amount. If you require a guarantor this should be a UK based home owner.
The usual tenancy agreement is for a period of 12 months, although it can be longer. If agreeable with the landlord we can insert a break clause after 6 months.
Consider beginning your search approximately 6 weeks prior to your ideal move date.
We look forward to helping you find your new home.
We discovered Bracewells this past Spring when we moved to North London from the United States. They were absolutely brilliant at finding us a flat and working with us to speed through the application and qualifying process so we could move in quickly and out of the hotel we were staying in I’d call them outstanding. — Michele Furlong
