We know finding a home to rent can be stressful. Which is why our team of experts are ready to help you at every stage of your journey. Our qualified and helpful staff will be happy to assist with every aspect of finding the ideal home to rent; from advising you on the local area to arranging viewings of suitable properties. They will then guide you through the paperwork prior to you settling into your new home.
Fees & Deposit
The first month's rent is payable in advance with all future payments payable by standing order. In certain circumstances, alternative methods of payment may be allowed, although this should be agreed in advance either with ourselves or with the Landlord.
A property cannot be held in reserve until a holding deposit has been paid. This will be equivalent to one week’s rent of the above monthly rental. The property will be suspended from the letting market and held for a maximum period of 15 days.
Tenancy Deposit Scheme
It is a statutory requirement that all deposits are protected. GTH operate a custodial based scheme with The Tenancy Deposit Scheme and are members of RICS and ARLA. The legislation sets out clear time scales and the manner in which deposits and any disputes are to be dealt with at the end of a tenancy.

Other Notable Information
Where properties are managed by GTH, they will be the subject to periodic inspections in order to confirm that the manner in which you are occupying the property is correct and that you are complying with your obligations under the terms of the Tenancy Agreement.
GTH reserve the right to arrange the first visit within the first month of the tenancy and every three months thereafter. If you have any questions about the visits, or want more information on what to expect, get in touch with your local office.
Utilities & Insurance
GTH recommend that all tenants have liability cover in excess of £5,000 to help protect them against any accidental damage to the Landlords fixtures and fittings. If you already have a policy in place, we would ask you to provide us with a copy of your certificate prior to moving in.
Rent4sure, our referencing partner, also offer a policy and can contact you directly to arrange a quote. GTH advise you to consider contents insurance, as the Landlords policy will not cover you for your own possessions. GTH will be in receipt of a referral fee of 20% for all Tenant Liability Insurance policies from Rent4sure if accepted by the tenant. (i.e. based on a cover premium of £79, GTH will receive a referral fee of £15.80)
