During the Corvid-19 outbreak we are following government and SafeAgent recommendations. The office is now open Monday to Friday 9 to 5 but closed on Saturday. We will do our best to support tenants during this difficult time and that includes protecting our staff, contractors and all clients. Your rent is still due and we expect you to pay. If you are having difficulties please contact us by email or phone and let us know. If you have an urgent repair we will send out contractors as soon as possible but please let us know if you are self-isolating or if there is any illness in the house. Allow the contractor to maintain a 2 meter distance from anyone in the house.
Welcome to RPC. If you are looking for a property to let, we will do our best to find a house to match your needs. We have been in business since 2003 and have found homes for hundreds of tenants, including both private payers and tenants on benefits. The minimum stay is a 6 month tenancy, but at the end of the 6 months this automatically becomes a rolling tenancy and you can stay until you or the landlord give notice to quit. Some tenants have been in the same property for ten years and more.
Renting a property is a two way contract. Your landlord provides a property that will be your own home while you live there. You have to pay the rent, pay the rates and utility bills and be responsible for your bins, keep the back yard tidy and generally look after the property and keep it decent. You must not disturb the neighbours or cause a nuisance, and you must not break the law and you must not damage the property.
In return, the landlord is responsible for the gas safety certificate and basic structural repairs. If you have any repair issues while you are in the property, you must contact RPC who will report this to the landlord and arrange work needed through the landlord.
We do require references and checks on your previous residence. We cannot let any property until we have met you and you have viewed the house. There are no tenant administration fees, but deposits of one month's rent are required on all properties. This deposit will be lodged in The Deposit Protection Scheme and you will be given full information about it and about how to reclaim your deposit at the end of the tenancy. Some properties also require rent in advance. You must have a good character reference to qualify for any property with RPC.
