1. Register with Estates East

  • You fill in and submit a Tenant Registration Form and the more details you give, the better the property-fit we can find for you. No signatures are required at this stage.
  • Next, we deliver a list of potential properties to your inbox when they become available.

2. Offer

  • When you've seen the home you want, we email you a link to the Offer Form which requires your signature.
  • Only then can an offer be made on the property for you.

3. Holding deposit

  • We let you know by email when your offer is accepted.
  • You then pay a holding deposit, which is the equivalent of one week's rent.
  • This isn't an extra fee, it comes off your main deposit. It's necessary because it secures the property for you while the reference checks are happening.
  • Once we receive a screenshot of the transaction from you to prove it's paid, we remove your property from our website and begin the reference checks.
  • Important: if you withdraw your offer without a valid reason after it's been accepted, you lose your holding deposit. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.

4. Reference checks

  • The information that's being checked is below. We enter your details onto our referencing platform, which keeps the process fair and moving forward.
  • See how Estates East protects your information in our Privacy Policy
  • Credit check
  • Reference from your current Landlord
  • Reference from your Employer to confirm your earnings

5. Deposit and Tenancy Agreement

  • Before moving in, you pay a deposit equivalent to 5 weeks' rent, plus 1 month in advance.
  • This amount is minus the holding deposit you already paid.
  • You also sign and submit the Tenancy Agreement.
  • You're able to move into your new home once the funds are cleared.

6. Move

  • You're home! We email you all your tenancy documents to keep.
  • Then it's time for you to meet your Property Management Team or your Landlord.
  • Rental payments are paid by standing order.
