      You've found a property to rent. So what happens next?

      These steps will provide you with all the information and advice you need...


      What happens if my offer is accepted?

      You will receive notification by email to confirm that your offer has been accepted by the landlord. The email will outline the details of the next steps in order to progress with your application. 

      What ID will I need?

      You must provide documents that prove you, and any other adults living in the property, have the right to rent in the UK. This could be a passport, national identity card, immigration status document or other paperwork listed as acceptable in the Government’s list for right to rent checks 

      What are permitted payments?

      These are payments that landlords or letting agents are permitted to charge to tenants.

      Please see our Tenant Fee flyer for more detail.  

      How often will rent be charged?

      The rent will be charged monthly in advance unless negotiated otherwise. 

      Will I need to make a holding deposit payment?

      To secure the property, a holding deposit of 1 weeks rent will need to be paid. This will be offset against your final deposit payment of 5 weeks rent in total 

      Is my deposit safe?

      Yes. We hold your deposit as part of the Insured Tenancy Deposit SchemeThe deposit is protected, and at the end of the tenancy shall be returned to you, subject to possible deductions against dilapidations or rent arrears. 

      What is the Tenancy Deposit Scheme?

      Please see our Tenancy Deposit Scheme flyer for further information.  

      Do I need to pay stamp duty?

      In most cases, tenants are not responsible for paying stamp duty.  Stamp Duty Land Tax will only be the responsibility for the tenant if the cumulative rental value is more than £125,000 

      Will I need a guarantor?

      If a tenant is not fully approved by the referencing process, they can ask a guarantor to support them. A guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) will agree to take joint responsibility for the rent of the property if the tenant fails to do so. Guarantors are required to pay any rent arrears if the tenant does not pay and for any damages costing more than the deposit. 

      Who will provide me with a tenancy agreement?

      Bidwells use the services of Goodlord to carry out the referencing and credit checks.  The tenancy agreements are also created through the Goodlord platform and signed electronically. 

      Do I need to arrange an inventory check?

      Bidwells will arrange to carry out an inventory report for the property, listing the contents and schedule of condition.  This will be provided to the tenant when they move in and will be used again when checking-out to identify any potential defects.  

      How and when do I collect the keys?

      Tenants are required to collect keys from the Bidwells Residential office, 54 High Street, Trumpington, Cambridge, CB2 9LS on the move in date. Details of your moving in arrangements will be emailed to you by the Property Manager in advance of your tenancy start date.

      Good job from Bidwells

      It was a very good experience dealing with Bidwells staff. From the sales negotiator (James Munro) to the dedicated tenancy team (Matt Kirkland). Both the Bidwells process and communications worked very well, with very clear and step-by-step instructions.
      It was very quick and efficient to get the things done for my rental.
