Apply to Rent a Property

Thank you for your interest in renting a property through Atlas Estate Agents.

As part of our application process, you will be thoroughly referenced by our referencing partner, Let Alliance. The referencing procedure will compromise of;

  • Credit check (covers adverse credit, CCJs, IVAs and bankruptcy)
  • Verification of your employment (or self employement) and income including any Government benefits that you may receive
  • Previous landlord(s) reference (if applicable)
If you feel you may fail a credit check and/or you may not receive a favourable employment and/or previous landlord reference then please provide more information in the 'Notes/Comments' section below. If you fail our referencing procedure then depending on the circumstances we may still be able to proceed with the tenancy through the introduction of a guarantor or via payment of the rent in advance for the entirety of the fixed term.

Application Details

An approximate date at this stage is acceptable. The date will be confirmed if your application is accepted.
Please enter a number only. For example; for 6 months, just enter the number '6'.
If you have children, please provide further details (e.g. how many, age and sex)

Please advise why you are looking to move into this property (e.g. current property too small, moving out of parents' home).
Do you have anything that you'd like to add to your application?
