Providing the right home for you

Although there is a huge shortage of rental properties, the Winnard Property Group strive to offer homes that suits all of your requirements, be it a one bedroom apartment or a five bedroom detached home, furnished or unfurnished, we will do our best to accommodate all of your needs.


Rent is usually payable per calendar month in advance from the date that you take possession. All rents exclude charges for gas, electric, water and council tax.


Before taking possession of a property a 5 weeks rent deposit will be required in addition to the first months rental payment in advance. The deposit will be used as security towards your obligations as a tenant and held in accordance with government legislation with one of the Tenancy Deposit Protection Schemes.

Taking Possession

We must have cleared funds before keys for any property can be released. If you are paying by cheque you should ensure that payment is made at least 6 working days before you take possession. We accept all major credit and debit cards.


When letting a property it is important that you have adequate tenants insurance that will not only cover you in the event that you need to make a claim for your own belongings but will also insure you against any accidental damage to the landlords contents.

Tenant Insurance

When renting a property from Winnard Property Group, it is recommended to have in place adequate Tenant Contents Insurance in the event of such perils as Fire, Theft, Flooding, Storm Damage and building defects.

We also recommend that your policy covers you for accidental damage to any contents that are owned by your Landlord. For example, if you spill wine on your carpet you want to have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your insurance will cover cleaning or replacement rather than the costs being taken from your deposit.

Under the terms of the Tenant Agreement, the Landlord is only responsible for insuring the building. The in-going inventory will be used as a mechanism in which to compare and assess any damage at the end of tenancy. The tenant agrees and accepts that the insurance held by the Landlord does not cover the tenant's belongings, and tenants are therefore responsible for taking out contents insurance to protect their own contents and valuables if they so require this insurance cover.

Winnard Property Group are able to help you source competitive specialist tenants insurance.
