Renting through Littlewood Estates

Littlewood Estates can offer you a range of different properties across the Greater Manchester, Warrington & Wigan area. We publish a regularly updated list of available properties which we can send you on request. Our computerised tenant matching service will match your name with a property the instant it becomes available.

When you have found the property you wish to rent, you will be required to complete an application form which will enable us to obtain the following references on your behalf:

  1. Bank reference
  2. Employers reference (confirming your status, employment details etc)
  3. Personal reference
  4. Credit Check

Admin Fees

Admin fees for referencing purposes are £100.00 per tenant, £160 for two tenants and £60.00 per Guarantor when required

In the case of self-employed applicants, a solicitors and accountants reference also may be required. Payment of the administration charges under item 5 above is required upon submission of your application form to cover our administration and legal costs when processing the application. It is non-refundable should references prove unsatisfactory or you decide to withdraw.

The Tenancy Agreement

Before the lease begins we will send you a draft Tenancy Agreement for your perusal. The clauses contained therein cannot be altered unless specific permission from the landlord is obtained which may delay the commencement date. The cost of the lease is included in your application fee. If the lease is extended after the initial period, a charge of £60.00 plus VAT is made for preparation of the appropriate documentation.

The Deposit

A deposit usually equivalent to one months rent is payable upon commencement of the lease and this is held by Littlewood Estate & Letting Agents Ltd against dilapidations or any breach of contract by the tenant. No interest is paid to either party on the deposit held.
