Tenancy Agreement Completion

If you are applying as a group and therefore signing a joint tenancy agreement, you will need to allocate a “lead tenant” who will be responsible for ensuring that everyone signs the tenancy and provides their deposit. This “lead tenant” will also be responsible for communications with the Deposit Protection Scheme.
Suitable arrangements will be made for the signing of the tenancy agreement and a copy will be provided to the Lead Tenant.

Safeguarding Your Deposit

Your deposit will be placed within the Deposit Protection Scheme within 14 days of receipt – details of the scheme are on the AST or if you click here.


On the arranged date of your move in, you will be met at Boundary Lodge and shown the building, facilities and your new apartment. We will run through Health & Safety and details of living in the building. You will be provided with your key and security fob and a Tenant Handbook.
You will also be provided with an inventory of the apartment which requires signing at the Move in but you have 7 days to check and highlight any issues.
