1. Registering your interest with Nupad Lettings

Register your details as prospective tenants is an easy process, you can complete our registration form and submit your details alternatively call the office directly on 01895 520097 or pop in and see us in the office.

Register your interest.

2. Viewing your prospective property

After registering your interest in a property you will be contacted by a team member of Nupad to arrange a viewing at the property. In January/February there is a high demand in viewings of student properties as this is when most of the student accommodation is advertised and secured for the up and coming academic year.

3. Securing a property

To proceed with renting a Nupad Property tenants will be required to pay a £100 holding deposit per person, this secures the property. At this stage there is a few bits of paperwork that needs to be completed, a Tenant Application Form for each tenant and guarantor (if required). We will send you more details of this when you register your interest.

4. Signings of Contracts

Once all credit checks/referencing has been completed and passed, an ASTA (Assured Short-hold Tenancy Agreement) will be drawn up and copies of this will be sent to all guarantors (if required) for their reference. After 7 days of these contracts being sent out, you will be asked to to sign the contract.

5. Prior to moving in

Nupad Lettings will contact each tenant on the contract 1 month prior to the contract start date to discuss the payment method for the initial deposit and 1st month’s rent, this is due 14 days before the start of the tenancy agreement.

6. On the day of moving in

An appointment will be made for you to attend the office and collect your property keys. We also give the tenants a copy of the information pack on this day with any relevant information that is required for your specific property. It will also have a useful pack in there to enable good housekeeping.
