When you register with Bond & Sherwill, you will receive regular property updates via Email, post and SMS. Our staff are here to make the property letting process as stress free as possible. Whether it is finding your ideal house or apartment, we will support you every step of the way.
If you find a property you like, you can book to view it at your earliest opportunity. Viewings are conducted between 9am – 6:30pm Monday to Friday, 9am - 4pm on Saturdays and by appointment on Sundays.
We will accompany you on all viewings so that we are on hand to answer any questions you may have and to gain a better understanding of what you are looking for.
Once you have found a property that you wish to make your home, you can reserve it by paying a holding deposit. If the Landlord declines to grant the tenancy or you decide not to continue, the holding deposit will be refunded. However, if you fail to provide complete and accurate information on your application form the holding deposit will be forfeited. We are also required, at this point, to carry out a Right to Rent Check so please ensure you bring your passport or ID in to the office.
Once you have completed the application form and paid the holding deposit, we will require satisfactory references from your employer, previous or current landlord and a personal reference. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. If you have not rented before or you are self-employed, we may also require additional proof of income and a bank reference. We may use the services of an independent company to obtain and evaluate the references.

Please be advised that we are also a part of the CMP scheme. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your Tenancy Agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.
