We’ve put together some questions and answers to help with any queries you may have about moving into your Target Property.

Moving In

Unfortunately not, we only receive the keys back from the previous tenants on the 30th of June (and some tenants return the keys back later than the agreed terms), so we have a very short turnaround to inspect our properties, instruct cleaners to attend and fix maintenance issues where necessary. We will need the property empty to carry out these tasks. There are many storage facilities in Leeds, some of which are:

Ready Steady Store

McCarthys 

Big Yellow

No, our usual opening hours are Monday to Friday 10am-5pm; as long as you arrive within office hours you can collect your keys, but remember you will still be responsible for your rent and bills on the property from the start date of the agreement, even if you’re not living there from the start date.

Don’t worry; we’re here to help! We’ve put together a handbook that explains what to do in different scenarios and how to report maintenance issues. You’ll be emailed a copy of the handbook when you have collected your keys and you’ll also find an information sheet in the property. If you have any questions during your tenancy there are many ways to contact us

We like to make the move in day run smoothly, but unfortunately sometimes issues do arise. We have a very short turnaround to inspect our properties, instruct cleaners to attend and fix maintenance issues where necessary. This could mean your property is in need of repair and is in the queue to be sorted. We advise you to take a look around the property on the day you arrive and make a list (with photos) of any issues and email it to us. If there are issues, don’t worry we will make every effort to deal with the problems as quickly as possible.

Firstly, take your meter readings! Locate the meters and take note, along with the date you took the readings. Then find out who the current providers are by calling:

Gas – 0870 608 1524

Elec – 0845 330 0889

Water – 0345 124 2424

If you wish to change suppliers, you’re welcome to do so but first you must register with the existing supplier from the first date of your tenancy agreement.

As for your internet, you should consider arranging this as soon as possible, most providers are usually very busy with limited slots for installations, so get it booked in as soon as you have decided who to go with. You can purchase a TV licence online, by setting up a payment plan or making a one off payment.
