Advice and Procedures for New Tenants.

 

As a prospective new tenant we would like to advise you on how to search for and move to a new home as easily as possible. When you make an enquiry with our agency you must be clear on the following details, which we will ask you initially.These will help us to save time for you in the long run – see attached form for completion

 

  • Your work circumstances

  • How many persons will occupy the property eg family, couple etc.

  • What is your monthly budget

  • How long a term will you require – most landlords ask for 12 months

  • Any other relevant details – furnished/unfurnished, pets, bus routes etc.

  • Have ready your work references, official identity document, i.e. driving licence, passport, previous landlord reference and proof of bank account. If you do not have an Irish bank account you will need to set one up to pay monthly rent and utilities by direct debit or standing order.

  • What times you are available to view properties.

 

When you view a property and decide you would like to take it you have to pay a non refundable booking deposit. The agent will then pass your references on to the landlord for review. Once the landlords has agreed to let to you, on the terms agreed, you must give us your home details and bank account details in order for the lease to be completed.

 

 

 

Important information to note.

 

  • Smith Kelly Scott act as agents for the Landlord. Once the lease is signed the security deposit for the property is passed to the landlord to hold until the end of the tenancy agreement. Smith Kelly Scott do not hold security deposits. At the end of the lease term is it purely the landlords decision as to how much of the deposit is to be returned. The landlord of the property will carry out the final inspection on the property before they hand over the deposit.

  • If there is a problem with the property during the lease agreement and you contact Smith Kelly Scott, the agent will contact the landlord straight away with details of the problem. It is then the landlords responsibility to make good the problem. Smith Kelly Scott are not responsible for repairs to properties which we do not manage.

  • Smith Kelly Scott do not hold spare keys for the property. All keys are handed over at the start of the tenancy.

  • At the end of the tenancy the tenant is responsible for cancelling the standing order for the rent. The tenant is also responsible for transferring the utilities back into the landlords name
