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 Royal Tunbridge Wells
The historic spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is one of the most popular towns in Kent, retaining much of its original charm and character. One of only three towns in England to be bestowed the 'Royal' tag, Tunbridge Wells was recognised for the honour by King Edward VII in 1909 thanks to its rich history and royal patronage. This is the perfect place to enjoy relaxed afternoons strolling through The Pantiles and browsing local boutiques.
The town centre is less than half a mile from the development and combines specialist shops with larger high street names, creating a great mix of old and new traditions in a pleasant historic setting.

Lovers of culture and entertainment will find plenty to enjoy in Royal Tunbridge Wells, with a fantastic local museum and busy art gallery, as well as a range of theatres featuring a variety of shows from family events to classical music.
