"We wouldn't hesitate in using Keymove again or recommending them to our family and friends. They were very professional and gave a great service."
Mrs Victoria Senior
Our personnel are specially trained and equipped to assist tenants to find properties to rent that will meet their needs. We maintain a database of properties available to rent and of prospective tenants and their requirements.
Our property portfolio includes properties such as:
House to rent in Leeds, Bradford, Halifax, Dewsbury, Wakefield and all surrounding areas
Flats to rent in Leeds, Bradford and Halifax, Dewsbury, Wakefield and all surrounding areas
As properties become available, our first action is to contact waiting tenants on the database, whose requirements match the property.
Typically, properties to rent become available about two months before occupancy date, so where possible it is advisable to start looking early.

Having identified a potentially suitable property, we will arrange a viewing. This will be at a time to suit you, and could be at evenings or weekends, subject to the Landlords permission. All viewings will be accompanied by a member of staff, who will be able to provide immediate advice and answer any questions you may have.
Having decided on a property, you will need to complete a written application form. At this time any details or requirements can be provisionally agreed, such as occupancy date, duration of the letting, etc. and then there are 3 steps to follow
1. On application, a Reference/admin fee will be required and proof of identification driving license or passport and proof of current address i.e utility bill dated within the last 3 months or council tax bill.
2. Within 48hours of references being passed a holding deposit/bond will need to be paid and this will secure the property for up to 1month.*
3. On day of sign up the 1st months rent will need to be paid.
* Payment of the Holding Deposit/Bond ensures that the above accommodation will not be offered to any other applicant by this company until after the above-entered planned commencement date. These are NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSITS and will be forfeit as liquidated damages in the event that you withdraw or otherwise fail to take up the tenancy by or on the above date. If, however, this Agency or the Landlord decline to grant the tenancy due to anything other than failed referencing it will be refunded, less the Agency Admin fee/s.
We will take references on behalf of the Landlord. Normally these will include your employer, any former landlord and a character reference. In addition a credit check will be undertaken.
Where a Tenant is unable to meet the required income or credit checks, the Tenant may have a Guarantor agree to underwrite any rent liabilities.
Rents are normally quoted on a calendar month basis. In addition, the Tenant is usually responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs.
Rents are payable by standing order (unless alternative arrangements are agreed in advance) to our Company bank account monthly in advance, with the first month's rent due before taking occupation of the premises.
A deposit (or 'bond') is normally required prior to occupation. This is normally equal to one month's rent, but may be more e.g. equal to 6 weeks rent. Check with our representative.
Where we are managing the property, this deposit will be either; a) held by us and covered by insurance, or b) forwarded to the government authorised custodial body. We will inform you in writing of which scheme is used. Where we are not managing the property any tenancy deposit which is required will be taken by the Landlord.
The deposit is held to cover any breakages, damage, rent arrears or other tenant liabilities. Where we are managing, at the end of the tenancy we will check the property in the presence of the Tenant and assess any damages and deductions due.
Please note that the deposit cannot be used by the Tenant to cover rent.
A non refundable administration fee of £150.00 (single applicant) then £100.00 for any further applicants, any guarantors are charged at £75 and is payable to Keymove Lettings & Property Management prior to the start of the tenancy to cover the Tenant's share of administration costs, including preparation of the tenancy agreement and any legal notices, referencing and credits checks.
