We may find and rent a property to you within a matter of days, so you need to understand the rental process before finding a private property to rent. To protect both tenant and landlord rights you will have to go through a series of checks, referencing and sign tenancy agreements. We always want you to rent through us, so we don’t just organise viewings; we help you at every stage of the complex rental process, including making and negotiating an offer.
A Holding Deposit the equivalent of one week’s rent is required to be paid prior to HomeFinders taking up references, to reserve a property (the holding deposit is refundable)

Please note that the need for a Guarantor may not become apparent until we start referencing an applicant or joint applicants or until all references for an applicant or joint applicants has been received.
