Lettings procedures for tenants

Renting a property through Millennium residential could not be simpler. A member of our team will guide you through the process making your move stress free.

Below is our step by step guide to renting a property through Millennium residential.

  • Registering your details with our office by phone, email or through our web site.
  • One of our members of staff in the lettings team will offer you a number of properties to suit your requirements and appointments will be made for you to view at your convenience.
  • Once you find a property and would like to proceed, an offer is made (Subject to references) and a two week holding deposit is taken. Once the offer is accepted, Millennium residential will then carry out the necessary references which will be sent to the landlord for their approval.


References that will be required are:-

  • Work reference
  • Bank statements
  • Bank reference/Status enquiry
  • Pay slips
  • Credit check (if required)
  • Previous landlord reference
  • We would need to see your passport and visa (if necessary)
  • Guarantor letter (if required)

N.B. In some situations tenants may be required to pay rent in advance. This may be either three or six months. (Dependant on what is required from the landlord)

Once references have been approved by the landlord, you will be required to pay the balance of the outstanding move-in monies. A draft tenancy agreement will then be sent to you for you to read.


Payment methods are:-

  • Local bank transfer – up to 3 working days
  • Cheque – 5  working days
  • Overseas bank transfer – 1 week (Please confirm with your bank)

All money that is transferred will be sent to Millennium residential’s client account.

Payment must be received before the start date of the tenancy agreement.  You must ensure that there is enough time for the payment to be processed prior to commencement of the tenancy.

Prior to moving in, your deposit will be registered with either; Deposit Protection Service (DPS), My Deposits or Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS). Whichever scheme is used, we will provide you with the information for you to read and sign.

Once Millennium residential has received all funds and the contract is signed, Millennium residential will release the keys on the start date of the tenancy agreement.
