Guide for Tenants

Finding a property
The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If not urgent, we log your details so that we can contact you as suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking about a month before you wish to move, as the most sought after properties are viewed and reserved quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months and are all Assured Shorthold Tenancies (AST's).
Brightstone aim to be Student and DSS friendly, however we regret we may be unable to assist at times due to Landlord instructions. However, if you can provide a deposit, guarantor and 1 months rental in advance some landlords can assist.

Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of staff, who can give advice and answer any questions you may have.

Reserving the property
Once you have decided on a property you will need to pay a 'holding deposit' of 100. Assuming that the tenancy goes ahead, this will be deducted from the monies due before you move in. If the landlord declines to grant the tenancy, it will be refunded. The deposit will not be refunded if you decide not to proceed for any reason, or if you fail to provide complete and accurate information in your application.

As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), and a previous or current landlord. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate references and perform a credit check.

Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account.

A security deposit equivalent to one month's rental must be paid, and will forwarded to The Deposit Protection Service (The DPS) in accordance with the terms and conditions of the DPS. These terms and conditions and ADR Rules governing the protection of the deposit including the repayment process can be found at This is held to cover damage,breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement but cannot under any circumstances be used by the tenant to cover rent. We will give you full advice on this upon contact.

We charge 100 to cover administration and referencing costs and an additional 50 for a guarantor if necessary.
