Even if you know exactly where you want to rent a home, how much you have to spend and what type of house or flat you wish to secure, it can still be helpful to use an agent to identify the exact property that matches your criteria.
The tenants section of our website has been designed to provide you with all the information you will possibly require if you are looking for property to let.

Find a property
Once you have found a property to let which matches your criteria, we will conduct a reference check and contact your guarantors if required. We will then register your deposit in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme.
On the day you move in, we will provide an inventory and verify the condition of the property. You should check this carefully as soon as you receive it as this helps to protect both you and the landlord over the course of the tenancy.
You can view all of our available properties to let here.
In addition to offering a thorough service prior to you moving into your new home that adheres to all of the relevant legal requirements, we are dedicated to assisting you throughout your tenancy.
If your landlord has chosen to have Leaders manage the property and experience a problem – such as a power failure, the breakdown of a property appliance or a security issue – our team will be on hand to help.
Once we are made aware of any issues in a rented home that we manage, one of our team will immediately seek approval from the landlord for the necessary works to be completed.
We are also on hand to assist should you either wish to renew your tenancy or give notice to leave in accordance with your tenancy agreement.
If you are not sure about the demands placed upon tenants and the criteria you will be asked to meet, take a look at our FAQs to work out exactly what you will need to do to secure your new rental property.
How do I secure the property I want??
You can browse our portfolio of rental properties online, before arranging viewings with a member of our experienced and knowledgeable team. Once you have found the property you wish to let, we will be delighted to proceed with your application.
What does referencing involve??
MSN residential will check your suitability to rent the property. We will ask for details of your employer and a previous landlord who can verify your suitability for a new tenancy, as well as running checks with a credit referencing agency. We will confirm your right to live and work in the UK and seek proof of your identity and that of anyone living with you. If you do have any credit issues or you believe there is any other information that may affect you passing our referencing procedure, it is best to tell us straight away.
Why do I need a guarantor??
Some landlords might ask for a guarantor if they are not satisfied your earnings are quite enough to cover the rent or if you have previous credit issues. This is not uncommon and you should not be concerned. You must choose someone to be your guarantor who lives in England or Wales and can cover your rental commitment in the event of a default. The same reference checks are then carried out for your guarantor as were done for you.
Why should I pay a Tenancy Deposit?
Landlords require a tenancy deposit to protect the property against any damage you might cause during your tenancy. They can only charge for any cleaning, damage or issue that goes above normal wear and tear and this will be assessed at the end of your tenancy, with the aid of a detailed inventory and schedule of condition. Similarly, the deposit can be held against non-
Where will my Tenancy Deposit be held?
It is a legal requirement that all deposits are held in a government-
What is the tenancy agreement?
This is a legal document that states the precise terms and conditions of the tenancy and is designed to protect both you and the landlord. MSN residential can draw up bespoke tenancy agreements to include specific circumstances outlined by either party.
What happens if repairs are required?
If you feel there is a problem that needs fixing, an appliance to be repaired or general maintenance work that is due on a property that we manage, you should contact us immediately. We will inform your landlord and, if necessary, call upon one of the many trusted tradesmen on our extensive database of contractors. You should be aware that if you cause damage you will usually be required to cover the cost of repairing it.
Can my landlord enter the property?
Your landlord and their managing agent must give you sufficient notice if they wish to enter the property, except in the case of an emergency, such as a burst pipe.
What are my responsibilities?
By signing a tenancy agreement, you are agreeing to abide by all the terms contained within it. The most common duties you must perform as a tenant are to pay your rent on time, pay household bills without delay, report any damages you notice and maintain the cleanliness of the property.
Am I responsible for insurance?
You will need to purchase a contents insurance policy to the value of possessions you are bringing into the property.
Can my landlord increase the rent?
Your landlord must enter into a period of negotiations with you and we will be happy to mediate at this time to help find a satisfactory outcome.
Can I extend my lease at a property?
Once the initial fixed term has come to an end, it is often possible to renew it so you can continue living at a property. As the term comes into its final months you should talk to us and we can advise on your landlord's willingness to extend your stay.
What happens when I want to move out?
A period of notice will be set out in your tenancy agreement and you must give this when you intend to leave. Providing you follow this, it is easy to move out of a property, as long as you respect the timescales and procedures that are in place. You should tell us as soon as you have decided to move out and we will advise on your next steps.
When will my tenancy deposit be returned?
When you move out we will conduct a check-
