Prospective Tenants

Finding a place to rent can often be a stressful and time-consuming process.

Winters Property Management has a dedicated letting team who will reduce the stress for you and help you find your home, whether you’re an individual looking for a one bedroom apartment or a family/group looking for a three or four bedroom or larger dwelling.

You tell us what you are looking for and we will do the rest.


Winters’ Guide to finding the right accommodation
  • Location: What area suits you best: city centre, suburbs, rural?
  • Traffic levels: Consider your commute to work or college every day. Maybe travel this route at peak hours.
  • Price: When considering your budget, bear in mind utility costs, taxi fares for a night out, bus fares etc.
  • Type of heating: Is the property heated by gas, electric or oil?
  • Parking: Do you need parking, and for how many cars?
  • Bus route: How far away is the closest bus stop?
  • Bicycle racks: Is there a bike rack for you to chain your bike to, as a lot of landlords will not allow you to keep your bike indoors in case of damage to walls?
  • Property type: House or apartment?  Detached or semi-detached?  Ground floor or first/second floor – what are the pros and cons for your requirements?
  • Garden: Do you need an outdoor space?
  • Rent allowance: Are you in receipt of rent allowance? Is the advertised rent per month within your CAP as, if not, your application to your Community Welfare Officer will not be accepted. Always enquire if the property you are interested in accepts rent allowance.
  • Schools: Are there suitable schools close by with availability for your child at present?
  • Bathrooms: Are there enough bathrooms in the property to suit your family/house-share?
  • Alarm: Is it important to you that the property is alarmed?
  • Facilities: What is important to you: wheelchair access, dishwasher, lift, parking, mobile phone reception, choice of TV/broadband service?
  • Lease period: Make sure you can fulfil the lease period required, i.e. 6 months, 1 year, etc.
  • Furnished/unfurnished: Do you need a fully furnished, partially furnished or unfurnished property?

TIP: Make your list in order of your priorities, but be prepared to be flexible: you’ll seldom be able to tick every box, but with the Winters Letting Team on your side it’s not impossible!
