Tenants

Brighton Accommodation Agency offer a wide variety of residential lettings across Brighton & Hove and our stock is ever changing. Register with us to keep up to date with all the latest properties as they become available.

Our agency fees cover all aspects of setting up your tenancy, from producing documents, to obtaining all necessary references and credit checks. This is the only fee we charge to the tenant and we will only charge you again when renewing for another fixed term. See details below.

All prospective tenants are required to undergo full referencing as a condition of their application for tenancy being accepted. Referencing will check the following:

  • Affordability
  • Credit Risk
  • Identity & Fraud
  • CCJ’s & Bankruptcy
  • Previous Landlord References (3 years)
  • Employers Reference/ 3 years worth of accounts.

If you have just started a new job, or are studying, you may need to provide a UK Guarantor or pay a larger deposit, please contact us for more information.

Student Lettings

Well, what can we say here? Firstly, we LOVE students, we really really do! We have a steadily growing portfolio that ranges from quirky two bedroom flats to a massive NINE bedroom apartment above a city centre pub!!

All our student properties are furnished with a Bed, Desk, Chair and Hanging space for clothes in every room. Communal furniture varies from property to property, so please make sure that you check at the viewing what is staying.

Our fees do vary slightly for student properties to our residential properties, so please do check the details below.

Once you have paid your agency fee and secured your property, you have six weeks in which all paperwork must be completed and your tenancy agreement must be signed. If this six week deadline is missed, you may lose the property.

You will be asked to provide a UK Guarantor, preferably a Homeowner, if you cannot provide a guarantor you may have to pay a larger deposit.
