Answer YES and you are ready to apply!
Step 5

Apply for a tenancy

When applying for a property to rent there are no fees for each applicant for credit checks & referencing however, should you be required to provide any further references or credit references. The landlord will be charged for this service within their management servies. 

Please note additional checks maybe require you to fund searches and enquiries and provide us with the documentation. 

We will check all areas of the application by supplying email addresses of references, employees and landlords will make the process much quicker. If you are eventually granted a tenancy of any property there will not be a charge for setting up the Tenancy Agreement documentation.

No Tenancy Renewal Charges.
Step 6

Provide a guarantor

A Guarantor is mandatory. The Guarantor MUST be a homeowner. We use the Land Registry database to check all guarantors. Guarantors must also sign the tenancy agreement on our premises with a witness.  We require two forms of ID & references. To speed up the process email addresses of all referees & guarantors should be given to Bakewell & Horner in the before submitting an application.
Step 7


Some landlords will consider accepting a Tenant who has pets but this is at their discretion. Should you have a pet you must disclose this on your application form and your pet will be entered on your Tenancy.  Should it be found at any time that there is evidence of a pet in the property that you do not have permission for it is possible that your Landlord will ask you to vacate by giving you 2 months notice to quit. Leaving you with a cleaning bill.
Step 8

Your Rent

The first month’s rent on a 6 months Assured Shorthold Tenancy is payable at the commencement of the lease and MUST be paid with cleared funds before signing. Each rent payment is then paid in advance. You pay for the month before you live in the property.
Step 9

Your Deposit

Deposits must be in cleared funds before commencement of the tenancy.

The deposit is calculated as 5 weeks rent. All deposits are registered with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. 

We aim to return all deposits within 10 working days of the end of your tenancy. Please ensure that we have a forwarding address.

Please Note: We do not physically hold your deposit money.
Step 10

Local Housing Allowance

Applicants who are in receipt of Local Housing Allowance must understand that in some cases this may not equate to the total rent required. This being the case it is up to the tenant to ensure that the full amount of rent, is paid on the due date.
