Tenancy requirements you should be aware of:

Payment of reference/tenancy fee
  • Reference for 2 adults is £295, and £60 for each additional person
  • Guarantor fees £90 per guarantor
The fee covers the cost of taking up references and setting up your tenancy. It also acts as a holding fee. Please note that this fee is non-refundable and does not form part of your security deposit.

Reference forms
We require each adult to complete a reference form and submit within 5 working days of receipt. On failing to do that, the landlord may re-advertise the property. The decision should take up to 3 working days from the submitted date. If you're asked to provide further forms of ID by the referencing company, this must be done within 3 working days.

Abacus Letting Services will require two forms of identification for each adult who'll be a resident at the property (one with a photo), along with an email address. Guarantors will also be required to produce the same identification.

Reference results
Once the decision is received, you'll be notified of one of the following:

You have been accepted
If you're accepted, you'll be asked to confirm your tenancy start date. We will draw up the tenancy agreements.

A guarantor is required
You'll need to provide the details of your guarantor, who must then complete a reference form within 5 working days. If this is not done, the landlord may re-advertise. There is a non-refundable fee of £50 plus VAT for the guarantor form to be processed.

You have not been accepted
This will mean you cannot continue with the tenancy as the references have failed. You can contact the referencing company, Rent4Sure, for an explanation should you be concerned about the decision. You'll not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid to Abacus Letting Services.

Procedure for moving in

Signing tenancy agreements and paying the deposit
You'll be invited to sign the tenancy agreement. All the references, including a guarantor (if applicable), will need to sign. You'll also have to pay the security deposit which is equal to one month's rent.

Moving in
Before the commencement of your tenancy, you'll be asked to make a cleared fund payment of the first month's rental. We will check you into the property on your start date and provide you with:
  • Keys
  • Inventory/condition report
  • Gas certificate (if applicable)
  • Tenancy agreement
  • Tenancy deposit certificate for your new home
You'll also be given a standing order mandate for future rental payments

Referencing fees, deposit and first month's rent can be done through:
  • Cheque (please allow for clearance)
  • Bank transfer
  • Debit card
  • Credit card (with a surcharge of 2.5%)
  • Cash
  • All future rent will be payable by standing order
Tenancy agreement renewals
For all your future tenancy renewals, an additional charge of £50 including VAT per tenancy agreement will be levied.

"On behalf of Julia and me, we would like to say a huge thank you for all your help and support over the last few years we have “let” through Abacus. The service you have provided has been impeccable; the professionalism of everyone at Abacus has been outstanding. I think the fact that we let three different properties from over several years is testimony of your service. We would like to say a special thank you to Elaine and Nicky who have been amazing throughout and given a very personal and professional service and we would recommend to anyone."
