What is an Assured Tenancy?
Assured Tenancy means that you agree to rent the property for a minimum term of 12 months, but after that you can leave at any time as long as you give two months written notice. We can’t ask you to leave unless you have broken the terms of the agreement.
I want to rent. What checks do you carry out and what do I need to prepare?
We’ll ask you to complete a Rental Application Pack and an Income and Expenditure form to get the information we need to do standard background checks. You’ll be asked for proof of income, savings and/or pensions, along with copies of your last three months’ bank statements. You’ll be asked to provide identification documentation that complies with the latest Government Right to Rent regulations – our sales consultants will talk you through what you need.
Do I need to pay a reservation deposit?
Yes, you will need to pay a small refundable reservation deposit to reserve the property. You will also have to pay a security deposit equivalent to five weeks rent when you move in.
What do I have to pay before moving in?
Before you can move into your property, you will need to pay the first month’s rent together with your security deposit, minus the reservation deposit you’ve already paid.
The security deposit is equivalent to five weeks rent. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you know the exact amount you need to pay in plenty of time.

Living in Poole
Branksome Park and the adjacent Branksome Dene Chine beach are some of the loveliest areas in Poole. The beach, which is just west of our proposed development, is a natural beauty with a dramatic cliff face hanging over golden sands and a promenade. The cliffs were actually formed some 45 million years ago and range in colour, making for some incredible photos. Branksome Dene Chine beach has parking and public transport stops, wheelchair accessibility, public toilets, and small food and drink stands. Lifeguards patrol from May to September. It's also a dog-friendly beach, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend down here for a run around! From Branksome, you're surrounded by 10 miles of Blue Flag beaches stretching across the rest of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch.
If you don't feel like a seaside walk, there are also buses running along the promenade from Bournemouth to Swanage, with a stop just 100m from our proposed development. The route will take you to Westbourne, Canford Cliffs and Bournemouth town centre. In summer, open-air buses run, so you can enjoy the warm weather.
The popular seaside resort of Bournemouth is just 2.5 miles away from our proposed development. There are several museums and galleries of interest, as well as attractions such as St Peter's Church (where Mary Shelley of Frankenstein fame is buried), Bournemouth Pier and theatre, the award-winning Central Gardens, and Oceanarium Bournemouth. If you'd like to go further afield, direct train services run from Bournemouth station to Winchester, Southampton Airport Parkway and London Waterloo.
