If you are looking to rent a property, Greenaway Residential Lettings Agents can help you.

With offices in Crawley and East Grinstead, both towns are located in West Sussex close to Gatwick Airport.   Covering the towns of Horley, Redhill, Reigate, Horsham, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and Crowborough, not to mention all the villages in between.

Once you have viewed a property and terms have been agreed, we will we write to both yourself and the Landlord to confirm what has been agreed.  We will then ask you to sign our terms and conditions, and we will also request a holding deposit equivalent of one weeks rent.

You (and any other adults over 18) will be asked to complete referencing forms; the Landlord will pay for the referencing.  But should you withdraw from the agreed let, reasonable deductions will be made from the holding deposit to cover the fee of your referencing and loss of rent that the Landlord will have incurred.

Once the referencing process is complete, we will firm up the agreed moving in date.  You will then come to the agreed office to re-sign the terms and conditions, read through and sign the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (AST).  You will also need to pay all agreed monies, which will need to be cleared funds before you can take up residency.
