Frequently Asked Questions

Bond Deposits
Before moving into your property, you’ll need to pay a bond deposit and bond protection fee (£12). This is normally equivalent to a month’s rent plus £100 per person. So if your rent was £350, your bond deposit would be £450. The deposit is held by us in a client account until the end of the tenancy as insurance against damages. A certain amount of fair wear and tear is expected, but any damages incurred by the tenants during the tenancy will chargeable. These charges will be listed once the tenancy has ended and an exit inspection has been conducted. A full inventory and schedule of condition of the property will be provided to you at the start of the tenancy.
My Deposits
We are proud members of My Deposits, a Government-authorised Tenancy Deposit Scheme. We protect all our bond deposits under this scheme, which guarantees your bond is protected and will be returned to you at the end of the tenancy. There is a charge of £12 per property to protect your deposit.

Guarantor Forms
We always ask that our tenants have a financial guarantor, as this reassures the landlord that the rent will be paid on time. The financial guarantor will be called upon should you fail to meet any of your financial obligations as outlined in your tenancy agreement. Your guarantor will be a UK resident, and homeowner, over the age of 21. The guarantor forms must signed, witnessed (by an independent party, over the age of 18) and returned to us in the post, along with a copy of their I.D (A utility bill, passport or drivers licence). It’s important that we get the ink copy of the forms, so we always allow up to two weeks for these to be posted back to us.
We have our own dedicated maintenance team to make sure all repairs are carried out quickly and efficiently. We always supply our tenants with our full list of contractors, so you can call them directly and arrange a call out time which suits you.
Joint House Bank Account
If you are entering into a joint tenancy (this is a Tenancy Agreement with more than one name on it) we will ask that you set up a joint house account. All rent will be paid by each tenant into this account, and one amount will be paid directly to us on either the first day of the month, or quarterly. Our staff members are always happy to offer advice and guidance about setting this up.
All our landlords and properties are vetted and inspected to ensure the highest standards. We ask our landlords to aim above and beyond local council housing standards.
Managed Properties
All our managed properties benefit from our in-house maintenance team, and the confidence in knowing we’re only a phone call away. All paperwork, including the Tenancy Agreement  is processed and signed in our office. Your bond is protected by the Government accredited scheme ‘My Deposits’ and your rent is paid every month, by standing order, into the JNR Client account.
Let Only Properties
We will complete all paperwork in our office, including the Tenancy Agreement, and collect your deposit and first month’s rent. This will be transferred to your landlord who will protect your bond under the government accredited scheme of their choice. Prior to moving in your landlord will contact you to make all arrangements for the start of your occupancy. All maintenance queries will be reported directly to your landlord, who will action them using his own team. Your rent will also be paid directly to them, and the landlord’s bank details will be provided to you when you move in.
