Tor Lettings understand that each Landlord & property is different, and that people become Landlords for many reasons. Regardless of reason, we know that you will need a letting agent that you can trust to find you the right tenant, give you accurate advice and provide clear guidance on the process. You need to know your investment is in safe hands and you can rest assured that with Tor Lettings you and your property are in the safest of hands.

We offer a fully comprehensive and competent service from Tenant Find to Fully Managed and aim to ensure we match tenants and landlords quickly and accurately to keep the turnover in your rental to a minimum.

If your offer to rent is not accepted by the landlord you will be entitled to a full refund of the amount paid.

If your references are not accepted by the landlord but do match with the information you have provided on your application form you will be entitled to a full refund of all monies paid.

If you fail to move into the property on the agreed date you will not be entitled to a refund of the amount paid in respect of the Rent.

If the references we receive do not match the information you provide on your application form you will not be entitled to a refund of the Holding Deposit.

To reserve a property, you will be asked to pay a holding deposit of an amount equivalent to one week's rent. This amount will be used towards your deposit when you move in.

Before moving in you will need to pay the first amount of rent previously agreed and any balance required being the difference between the required deposit and the Holding deposit.
