Property to rent in Newhaven, East Sussex. Register your details with Meeching Estates.

In accordance with the latest regulations, we do not charge an administration fee. However, we reserve the right to ask for a refundable Holding Deposit which will normally be used to form part of the eventual Tenancy Deposit. This Holding Deposit varies from property to property, dependent upon the monthly rent, but will not exceed the equivalent of 1 week rent. The Holding Deposit will be forfeit in the event that an applicant (including a guarantor) withdraws from the tenancy, provides materially significant false information or fails to sign the tenancy Agreement within 15 days.

The information we need before a tenancy

We will then ask you for various items of information and references, which can take up to two weeks to complete.

From all applicants our reference company will ask for:

  • two forms of identification, including photo I.D
  • reference from a previous landlord, or
  • if you have not rented previously recently, we will usually ask you for a guarantor
  • a credit check

If you are working we will ask for:

  • a reference from your employer

If you are in new employment, we may also ask for:

  • a guarantor or previous employment references

If you are self-employed we will:

  • ask to see your most recent business accounts or request an accountants reference
  • we may request a guarantor where there is no accounts history

If you are a student we will need

  • a letter from your college or uni to confirm you are a student there
  • a guarantor who guarantees the rent will be paid

Again this is only a general guide. Occasionally we vary these stipulations – either at our discretion, or at the request of the landlord or applicant – to ensure that a proper, but fair, check is made to verify the suitability of applicants for our landlords’ properties.
