Our Guide To Renting A Property

Ashtons Lettings is one of the most experienced lettings and property management agents in York. We have an extensive portfolio of apartments and houses to rent across York and Acomb and a qualified team ready to support all prospective tenants.

Setting your Budget

Renting a property in York begins with setting yourself a budget based on the monthly rent you can afford to pay. Our lettings team at Ashtons can help you calculate this using your salary and other financial details. Our team will also talk you through all the costs to consider, such as a deposit for your rental property.

Finding Your Perfect Property

Once you have your budget in place, you can begin to search for properties to rent. We have a large portfolio of properties which can be viewed using our online search tool. Choosing a professionally managed property is an excellent way to ensure that your rental home will be well maintained. Having a Property Manager in places means that you can spend your time enjoying your rental home and let us take care of the day-to-day running of the property.

Completing Your Tenancy Application Forms

Once you have found the property you would like to rent, you will need to complete a tenancy application form. Ashtons Lettings will also require photographic ID and a bank statement or utility bill to verify who you are. We will also complete references and credit check.

Signing the Tenancy Agreement

Once your referencing is complete, we will put the proposed tenancy to the landlord whose decision it is to proceed with the let. Once you have been offered a tenancy you will be required to sign the tenancy agreement and pay for your first months' rent and deposit upfront. Ashtons Lettings will answer any questions you may have before signing the agreement.

Moving into Your Property

Once all the paperwork has been signed, your keys will be ready for collection from Ashtons Lettings office in York. 

The Support Doesn’t Stop There

Ashtons Lettings will be there to support you throughout your entire tenancy. All you have to do is pick up the phone or drop us an email and we will be ready to answer any questions you may have.
