Demand for rental properties in the Irlam, Cadishead, Salford and Warrington areas remains high.

There are however lots you can do, to help get ready for when a suitable property becomes available.

Make Sure Your Credit File Is Healthy

Most agents will ask for one months rent in advance and also a deposit which is usually equal to the rent but can be as much as 6 weeks rent. Its always useful if you can to keep this money to one side so you are in a position to apply when needed. All agents or landlord will most likely do a credit check on you, so keeping on top of credit card and mobile phone bills is important.

Get ready to be asked questions, if there are several other people wanting to rent the property. The Agent will need to pick between applicants, if you are Employed, we will ask about your salary, how long you have been in your job. If you are on Universal Credit, you may get asked questions like ‘How many children live with you’.

  • Who will be living with you?
  • Are you currently renting?
  • Are there any credit issues?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Are you a smoker?

Different landlords have different criteria that they look for. Some prefer the highest earner, others just want a good long term tenant.

You will be asked to pay a holding fee to reserve the property while checks are performed. References are usually completed within 7 days but may take longer if your employer or landlord don’t respond quickly.
