Step 3

Reservation Fee

To reserve an apartment, we require you to sign an offer letter, which explains the lettings process, and pay a reservation fee of £100.00 which will be credited to your first month’s rent. This is paid via a secure payment link with a debit or credit card.

Step 4


Once we have received the reservation fee you will be sent a link from LetRef asking you to complete their reference form. If you cancel your application after you have been put on referencing or are unable to provide satisfactory references, we will retain the reservation fee.

If you are a student, or your references are not satisfactory, you will be required to have a guarantor who is a UK homeowner that earns 3x the annual cost of the apartment or pay rent in six-month instalments. Tenants jointly need to have an income of 2.5x the annual cost of the apartment. A guarantor needs to have an income of 3x the annual cost of the apartment own a property in the UK.

Step 4 Referencing

Step 5


We offer a Zero Deposit Scheme operated by Flatfair or alternatively MyDeposit custodial scheme, which will require a payment equivalent to one month’s rent.

Flatfair offer a scheme which allows you to move in without paying a deposit. They will ask you to pay an arrangement fee of £24 to enter into an agreement with them instead of paying a deposit equivalent to a month’s rent. If you choose to pay a deposit rather than signing up to the Flatfair scheme, this will be registered with My Deposit. For further information on Flatfair please see their website The website suggests that that a joining fee would be based on the rental amount, however you will benefit from the discounted price of £24.00 because you will join by invitation of Cording Residential.
