Southside Property Management

This is an application process; following the steps below does not guarantee you the property and we accept multiple applications for any property. Should you be unsuccessful in securing the property, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you. We will then either put you forward for your next choice or give you the option to transfer your application and supporting documents to another available property (please note that any guarantors will need to complete their form again with the new property address). By default, we keep your application on file for 30 days in case the accepted applicant withdraws and the application is then deleted, should an application not be successful within that timescale. If you would like your application removed sooner, please contact us.

Guarantor Requirements

  • Are a student
  • Not in full time employment
  • In a probation period for a new job
  • Under 2 years of self employment
  • Do not have sufficient income (a student loan does not count as an income).
  • If your credit rating is insufficient (deemed by Experian or other relevant credit check companies we use) then a guarantor is also likely to be requested.
  • The guarantor must receive an income of at least 2.5x the amount of the monthly rental (for example, a £1000 per calendar month flat shared between two people with low income would require two guarantors with at least £1250 net monthly income or one guarantor for both tenants with at least £2500 net monthly income).
  • If you and/or your guarantor do not currently live in the UK, or cannot be traced to a UK address, you may be asked to pay double your share of the deposit, prior to the tenancy start.
  • If a guarantor is self-employed, a credit check may be carried out on the business. A tax return, letter from an accountant or bank statements may also be requested.
  • There is also the option to pay the first six months’ rent upfront, this may eliminate the need for a guarantor for that period (depending on Landlord’s preferences).

Please note that unfortunately, due to the high costs associated with credit and debit card payments, we no longer accept card payments and all rental or deposit payments are required by bank transfer.
