Step by step property renting guide

property portfolio, selecting only prime properties in London destined to meet your highest demands.
Step 1Getting your finances in order
Ready for an exciting fresh start in an upcoming neighborhood? Renting a new home can offer you greater flexibility while avoiding the long-term commitment to maintaining your own property. Before you begin your property search it is advisable to put your finances in order. Setting funds aside for at least one and half month’s rent to pay in advance is always the case when renting a new property in London. Be mindful that once you sign a tenancy agreement you financially commit to the whole duration of the tenancy.

Step 4Considering a managed property
While you commence in your search, we advise you to keep your options open and consider renting a managed property. Managed properties maximize the benefits of renting and can offer peace of mind. If you decide to let a property managed by Copperstones, you will enjoy bespoke personal service, immediate solutions to day-to-day issues and streamlined hands-free processes for monthly payments, deposits, and tenancy renewals plans.

We know that property letting is an exciting time, whether is finding a new home or making the big investment move you always planned to. Either way, viewings are a very important step in securing a suitable property. We recommend you enjoy our quiet and attentive viewing style, which allows you to explore every inch of the property in complete privacy and arrive in style with our private chauffeur service. Our bespoke customer care includes property viewings at your own convenience such as during after working hours or on the weekends.
Step 6Making an offer
Once you have found a property that matches your requirements and you are happy to proceed, we submit your offer to the landlord. Our team will underline if there are any special conditions to your offer and include your referees.We will manage all legal aspect of the offer by informing you of your rights as a future tenant and explaining to you any other details regarding service and ground rent charges. We suggest you benefit from our situation analysis of the essential parameters of renting a property since it will give you leverage while negotiating.
Step 7Offer Accepted
When your offer is accepted, we proceed with reference check and payment of the holding deposit to secure your dream property and take it off the market. We have streamlined the reference check process for you since it can take up to 10 days to complete. In the reference check, you are required to provide credit, employment and income information along with a reference from a previous landlord. In order for you to move in, you will be required to put down a deposit of the first month’s rent.
Excited about moving in? Our team will release the keys to the property, along with our special Moving In Guide and welcome you to your new home. The last stage of the renting process is to carry out the check-in and inventory checklist, to outline the conditions of the property and ensure that the moving in deposit will be refunded to you once you move out. If you are moving into a property managed by our team, your new home will be assigned to one of our experienced property managers from whom you will enjoy our bespoke service throughout the tenancy period. If we don’t manage this property, we then implement our aftercare pack through which you will be provided with continuous support during your tenancy period and beyond.
Congratulations, you can check-in now!
