What is an Assured Tenancy?

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 Pym Court
"There's always plenty of people about even if you're just going shopping."
Living in Topsham
Topsham is a coastal and affluent suburb of Exeter that sits alongside the Exe estuary, which is famous for its sailing and water sports. It was once a thriving port and shipbuilding centre, and today there’s still a charming passenger ferry that transports passengers across the Exe, as well as plenty of waterside pubs where you can stop for lunch. You can even take long or short cruises where you can discover the wildlife of the Exe estuary or visit Exmouth’s sandy beaches.
Topsham is a desirable and quirky town that boasts a selection of independent retailers. Within Topsham, there’s a popular antiques centre, an authentic Sunday market and plenty of local stores where the owners are incredibly passionate about their goods.
Within the town, there’s also a collection of distinctive buildings, including 17th century merchant houses that sit along The Strand. One of these is the Topsham Museum, where a number of interesting exhibitions are held.
If you like to get out and explore further afield, then you’ll be pleased to know that our retirement properties in Topsham will be located on a main bus route, with bus stops immediately outside the development. The development will also be close to Topsham railway station, which sits on the Avocet Line. All trains from Exmouth to Exeter St David’s stop at Topsham, and there’s a half-hourly daytime service in each direction.
With so much to see, do and explore in the local area, it’s perhaps no wonder that The Sunday Times voted Topsham as the best place to live in the South West in April 2019.
