Your Reliable 'Property Hub' for Rental Property in Wembley, and the wider Brent and Harrow Area

Finding the perfect rental property can be a time-consuming and frustrating process, particularly when you have a busy schedule and work commitments. That's why it's crucial to choose an efficient letting agent who can assist you in finding your desired property.

At Property Hub, we pride ourselves on being a member of reputable industry associations such as The Property Ombudsman (TPO), the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), and the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA). As members of these government-approved bodies, we adhere fully to industry guidelines, standards, and codes of practice. Our experienced team of agents provides impartial advice to tenants, helping them make informed decisions.

We work diligently to find you the ideal new home in the shortest possible time frame, minimizing stress along the way. We also understand that renting a property for the first time can be overwhelming, so we have provided comprehensive information about the entire process.

 Residential Tenants

With a wide range of rental properties available in Wembley and the broader Brent and Harrow area, we can assure you that we will find a suitable property that meets your needs. Take a few minutes to either register for free online or email info@propertyhubltd.com, or call our lettings team on 0208 903 1002 to increase your chances of finding your perfect rental home.

The best properties tend to quickly be snatched up, but by registering with us, you will receive the latest listings as soon as they hit the market. In fact, we often have information about upcoming properties that haven't been advertised yet, allowing you to be at the forefront of the queue.

We can also assist you in managing your budget and finances by considering all aspects, such as rent in advance, security deposits, and additional expenses like council tax, water rates, gas, electricity, and TV license. Calculating your affordability will help you in viewing prospective properties.

 Securing a Property

Once you have found a property you are interested in, our lettings team will arrange a viewing at a convenient time for both you and the current occupier, even if it's outside of normal office hours or on the weekend. If you decide to proceed and the landlord accepts you as a prospective tenant, our team will help you secure the property by taking a holding deposit. For more details, please refer to our Tenant Fees/FAQs page.

 Tenant Referencing

Before proceeding with a tenancy, we conduct various checks to ensure you can afford the rent and are legally eligible to rent in England. You will be required to provide the following documents and information:

  • Credit Checks - We will assess your credit rating and confirm the absence of any outstanding CCJs (County Court Judgments) in your name.
  • Affordability - We will request 3 months' bank statements and payslips to evaluate your financial capacity.
  • Employer - We will contact your current employer to verify your employment status and job security.
  • Address - Please provide a utility bill from your current home dated within the last month.
  • Identity - A valid photo ID, such as a driving license or passport, is required. In case you don't have either, please inform us, and we can discuss alternative proof of identity documents.
  • Previous Landlord Reference - We will request a reference from your landlords from the past 3 years. If there have been any issues, please inform us, and we can contact your previous letting agent if necessary.
  • Right-to-Rent - This is a legal requirement, and we will ensure your status complies with the regulations. If needed, we will discuss alternative methods of verifying your right-to-rent status. Find out more HERE.

In case you are a first-time renter or cannot meet our referencing checks, you may require a guarantor who meets the same referencing requirements. The guarantor will be responsible for any non-payment of rent

Failure to provide the required information in a timely manner or withdrawing from the process will mean that you will lose your holding deposit, unless the landlord has decided to withdraw their consent. 

 Your Tenancy

Our lettings negotiator will engage in a comprehensive discussion with you, as the tenant, and the landlord to outline the tenancy terms and break clauses prior to proceeding with the tenancy agreement. Subsequently, we will furnish you with a copy of the tenancy agreement for your thorough perusal before affixing your signature. We strongly advise that you seek clarification on any terms that may be unclear to you, as signing this agreement legally binds you to the specified tenancy terms.

Upon signing the agreement, you will be required to provide the deposit payment. To ensure compliance with regulations, the deposit will be registered with one of the government-backed Tenancy Deposit Schemes (DPS). Our esteemed lettings team will furnish you with all the relevant documentation pertaining to the deposit registration prior to your occupancy of the property.

It is highly recommended that tenants obtain contents insurance, as the landlord holds no liability for any damage or loss of tenant belongings. Generally, landlords possess their own building insurance coverage.

 Moving In

We strongly recommend that you inspect and record the meter readings, identify the location of water supply stopcocks, and verify the currency of gas and electricity certificates, as well as the availability of instruction manuals for any appliances, immediately upon receiving the keys to the property. Although most of this information will be provided in the check-in inventory, conducting these checks personally is advisable.

Furthermore, we advise you to meticulously review the inventory and promptly notify either our agency or your landlord of any discrepancies. This notification should occur within 5 days of the moving-in date. If feasible, please capture photographic evidence and forward it via email to both the agency and the landlord. Taking these precautionary measures will help prevent potential disputes in the future.

Throughout the duration of your tenancy, it is expected that you promptly inform either our agency or your landlord of any maintenance issues requiring attention. Failure to do so may result in increased repair costs, which could impact your deposit. However, it is important to note that certain maintenance obligations fall under the landlord's responsibility. Should any maintenance or checks be necessary, we will provide you with advance notice to facilitate access.

Adherence to the terms outlined in your agreement and the fulfillment of the maintenance obligations specified therein are expected throughout your tenancy. Your agreement will also delineate your landlord's maintenance responsibilities.

In the event of any changes in your circumstances during your tenancy, it is imperative that you promptly notify either our agency or your landlord.

Rent is typically paid either monthly or quarterly in advance, preferably through a standing order as indicated in your signed tenancy agreement.

You are responsible for the following bills:

  • Utilities (gas, electricity, water)
  • Council Tax
  • Television license
  • Telephone/Broadband
  • Installation of cable/satellite TV (if permitted and applicable)
  • Subscription to cable/satellite supplier
  • Contents insurance

Upon the conclusion of your tenancy, you may choose to renew your tenancy agreement, or if you wish to vacate the property, you must provide a minimum of 2 months' notice of your intention to leave.

The security deposit will be returned to you within 14 days of vacating the property, less any agreed-upon deductions for dilapidations or damages incurred. Any disputes regarding the deposit will be referred to the Tenant Deposit Scheme's free dispute resolution service (ADR Services) for further resolution.

Tenant Document Checklist:

  1. Signed Contract
  2. Receipt of Rent, Deposit, and Admin Fees (if applicable)
  3. Future Payment Instructions
  4. Copy of CP12 (Gas Safety Certificate) if gas supply/flues are present in the property, ensuring safety compliance
