Envisage Sales and Lettings specialises in residential lettings and student lettings. We offer a vast range of properties from studio flats in a purpose-built building to semi-detached properties in sought after areas throughout the City of Coventry. We pride ourselves on having a community of prospective tenants and welcome you to register with us, even if we do not have any properties that meet your specification at the time, we offer priority notification of any new properties that are coming to the market.
Firstly, work out how much you can afford. You can do this by using an online budget calculator. Once you have deduced the average gas, electricity and council tax bills and any debt and expenses, the remaining balance will represent your rental budget.
We have adapted our traditional approach to viewing properties in line with COVID-19 procedures, enabling us to expand our network of prospective tenants to a national and international level. We continue to offer traditional face to face viewings and in addition to this we also offer a virtual tour online and you can book a virtual appointment with a member of our team at a time to suit your needs.
Once you have decided to proceed with a property you can contact our friendly team to put forward your interest. Remember to be prompt about this and be prepared to negotiate if there are multiple offers of interest. Perhaps you could opt for a longer contract or pay in advance to cinch the deal. Ensure that you have agreed the terms of your contract with our agent, whether you wish for an item of furniture to be removed as part of your tenancy or an item to be added.
Following the acceptance of your offer we will carry out right to rent checks. You will be required to provide your I.D. in the form of a Passport, Driver’s Licence and Visa where applicable. We will also require bank statements and/or utility bill statements dated within the last 3 months. You will be required to complete a referencing application online within 48 hours and you must declare any known County Court Judgements (CCJs) at the point of application.
An initial holding deposit of one weeks’ rent will be required at the application stage. Upon successful completion of referencing, you will be permitted to pay the first month’s rent and a security deposit of 5 weeks.
At Envisage Sales and Lettings we aim to make the transition to your new home as seamless as possible. We offer contracts to be signed online or if you would prefer, you can sign up in our local friendly branch.
