Tenants - The Renting Process

Every prospective tenant has individual wants and needs and we appreciate the difficulties of searching for that special place to live. Bradley & Co has properties ranging from studio flats to detached houses, so we’re confident we’ll have something to suit you. Please call or email us to register your requirements and we’ll add you to our database to make sure you don’t miss out on new instructions.


Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you and our clients.


We use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate references.

Non-Refundable Reservation Fee

Following a viewing with Bradley & Co, should the applicant decide to apply for the rental the applicant is required to pay a non-refundable reservation fee of 48% of the agreed monthly rental (minimum charge of £420) in order to secure the property and take the property off the market whilst references are being carried out. The only reason a reservation fee would be refunded is if the landlord withdraws from the property.


A security deposit of 5 weeks’ rent must be paid and will be held by a government approved scheme. This is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
