Once you have chosen an apartment, we take a one week’s rent reservation payment to secure it whilst we complete your application and referencing. The payment is deducted from your first months’ rent. For the finer details, give our T&C’s a read.
We want you to make this your home and we want you to stay as long as you like. We do have a minimum stay of 6 months, but we are happy for you to sign a lease of anything up to 3 years. If life changes, you will be able to give two months’ notice, but at least you can relax knowing it will be your decision when you leave, not ours.
It usually takes about 48 hours of receiving all the referencing information to get a decision. Your move in date can be agreed during the application process.
You pay a one months rent as deposit. If you move in, for instance, on the 12th of the month, you will pay a month’s rent (plus a month’s deposit) prior to moving in and you will pay your rent going forward every month on the 12th.
We will put your deposit into a government backed deposit scheme, run by Tenancy Deposit Scheme, and we will provide you with paperwork from them.
We use an independent inventory clerk to complete a full report recording the condition of your apartment before you move in. If you notice anything that they have missed in the first week, please let us know and we will add it to the report.
You will be assigned a dedicated person within our property management team. We are here to help at every step of the way, 24/7. If you have a problem, contact us and we will deal with emergencies immediately, non emergencies will be dealt with as soon as possible and we will keep you updated throughout the process.
You will not be charged for any general maintenance issues, but repairs required due to misuse or damage will be chargeable.
Concierge will be able to provide access to your apartment in emergency, but replacement fobs/keys will have to be ordered through Kooky.
We understand, why would you want to leave?! Just contact us to discuss. This can be done at any time or no later than one month before the end of your initial tenancy term.
That’s a shame. If you do decide to move, then please let us know as soon as possible and no later than two months before the end of your tenancy. You do need to confirm in writing, an email is fine, about ending or extending your tenancy.
We do ask that you leave the apartment as you found it, it’s only fair! We will contact you to talk this through once you confirm you are leaving us.
We check the condition of the apartment the day you move out and compare that to the check we did before you moved in and all being well, we will the arrange for the deposit to be returned as soon as possible, but within a maximum of 10 days.
We would hope not to charge you anything but we would expect you to pay a fair and reasonable cost towards any change in condition/damages to the apartment or furnishing that are beyond usual wear and tear.
We will ensure that the communal areas are cleaned on a weekly basis as we want it to look great for you at all times.
Let us know if there is something you think needs attention. However, we will inspect these areas and the quality of cleaning on a monthly basis and if they aren’t looking their best we will deal with it.
