Tenants Information

Friar Lettings understands that to provide a good service to our Landlords, we need to take care of our Tenants. To ensure we look after you, one of the fundamental differences between Friar Lettings and its competitors is the maturity and professionalism of the Lettings team along with the hands on personal service offered.

  • We have an extensive range of properties for you to rent.
  • We have easy to read agreements that comply with the latest legal regulations
  • Accompanied viewing


Once you have identified a prospective property, Friar Lettings will arrange for you to view the property, at a time to suit you which may be an evening or weekend subject to the Landlords or tenant in residence permission. All of the viewing appointments are accompanied by us, so that we will be able to provide immediate advice and answer any questions you may have.


Having selected a property, at this time any details or requirements can be agreed, including occupancy date, duration of the letting, etc.

Administration Fee & References Once you have decided to rent a property Friar Lettings charge an administration fee to cover the references and credit checks & to produce the Tenancy Agreement. Once we have received satisfactory references Friar Lettings will confirm the final details for your new home and provide you with the relevant utility details to change over.


Prior to the day you move in you will be required to pay one months rent in advance and a security deposit. This is normally equal to one and a half month’s rent. This deposit will be protected in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection legislation where applicable. The deposit is held to cover your obligations under the tenancy agreement including any breakages, damage, or other tenant liabilities. At the end of the tenancy an independent Inventory clerk, will check the property in the presence of the tenant and assess any damage. The cost of the check out appointment is paid by the tenant and invoiced at least 2 months in advanced where possible.


Rents are normally quoted on a calendar month basis. Your rent is paid by standing order in advance and is calculated per calendar month. Friar Lettings will request that the Standing Order Mandate provided is completed on or before the commencement day of your tenancy.
