Thank you for visiting our web site where you can check out the properties we have available to rent.
Here at Landlords 2 we recognise that moving to a new house can be expensive; not only is there a month’s rent to pay in advance and a deposit but also administration fees which vary from agent to agent with some high street letting agents charging as much as £500.
At Landlords 2 we have taken the decision not to charge tenants an administration fee nor do we pass this fee on to the Landlord. Tenants who stay within the terms of their agreement will never pay any fees. We do however reserve the right to charge fees for tenancies operated outside the terms of their agreements; click here for a list of these fees.

Found Your Perfect Home
Once you have found your perfect property and would like to make an application please contact us straight away to avoid disappointment. We will send you an online initial tenant enquiry form for completion, each adult tenant will need to complete a separate enquiry form and in the event a guarantor is required they too will need to complete a form. In completing this information, you are agreeing to Landlords 2 sharing your information with any potential landlord and agree to your employer or current landlord being able to disclose information including references to us. We will discuss your application with the Landlord and get back to you as soon as possible with a response as we know how frustrating it can be to be kept waiting potentially missing out on other properties.
Should the Landlord agree to accept your application then at this point you will be required to pay a holding deposit of 50% of the monthly rental or a minimum of £200 following which no further viewings will take place. This payment demonstrates your intent to proceed but does not constitute an offer of a tenancy. This payment will be deducted from your deposit (often referred to as a bond).
The information you have provided will need to be substantiated during the referencing process. We do this for each adult tenant by way of a credit check and request references from any previous landlords and current employers. Guarantors are also subject to a credit check and an employer’s reference (if applicable).
Right to rent checks will need to be carried out for all adult Tenants. This will entail us having sight of (originals only) and keeping copies of your passport or other allowable documents. More information on allowable documents and Right to Rent checks are available here. We will also require Photo Id for any guarantors. Proof of current address such as a recent utility bill will be required.
If you are currently living in rented property you should not submit your notice until your tenancy has been accepted which typically takes about 14 days.
Pre Check In
Prior to commencing your tenancy, you will receive a number of documents including a EPC certificate and valid gas safety certificate. You will also receive a leaflet entitled “how to rent” which is published by the Department for Communities and local government. To avoid any unnecessary delays please confirm receipt as soon as possible.
Before your check in day cleared funds must be received in respect of one month’s rent in advance and the balance of the deposit. In line with current legislation the total deposit will be submitted to The Deposit Protection Service (DPS) within 30 days of payment.
Check In Day
On the day of check in all tenants and guarantors will need to meet with Landlords 2 at the property. You should allow one hour for the check in process. If the Landlord has requested an inventory this will be checked and a copy sent to you be e mail. You must check this carefully and report any discrepancies within 7 days of your tenancy commencing.
If Landlords 2 are managing the tenancy you will be given the office contact details, bank account details for payment of rent and details for access to our online maintenance system which is used for reporting non-emergency repairs. If the landlord has chosen to manage the property themselves they will ensure you have all details required following the initial check in.
Your tenancy agreement will be an assured shorthold tenancy usually for an initial fixed term of 6 months. Following expiry of the fixed term the tenancy will become a monthly periodic tenancy which can be terminated by yourself by giving one months’ notice in writing which must correspond with your rent date.
Terminating Your Tenancy
On receipt of your notice Landlords 2 will send you the information you require to ensure that you prepare the property for check out. If an inventory has been complied this will be checked against the condition of the property and a note made of any damages / cleaning required. Final meter readings for utilities and a forwarding address will be required. Provided there are no issues your deposit will be returned in full from the DPS. If there are any deductions to be made they will be specified in your check out report. If agreement cannot be reached regarding the amount deducted from your deposit then this will be referred to the DPS arbitration service.
