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 at Clemens Place
Living in Ampthill
Ampthill has a royal history - it was once one of King Henry VIII's favourite towns and the home of Catherine of Aragon for a few years. In 1242, Henry III passed a law for Ampthill to hold a weekly market, which is still going today - the perfect place for picking up fresh produce and knick-knacks. While the famous 15th-century Ampthill Castle is unfortunately no longer here, you can still visit the remaining ponds and Ampthill Park, which now stands on the old grounds. The park features work from the renowned landscaper Lancelot 'Capability' Brown and the grand Ampthill Park House, built in 1686.
If you'd like to get more involved in Ampthill's lively community, there are a number of leisure clubs you can join, offering a range of sports from tennis to bowls.
