Application Process

Follow our 8 step application process below.

Applicants must complete a pre-viewing questionnaire to assess whether or not they meet the referencing criteria for that particular property  – You can find our Pre Viewing Questionnaire here – Pre Viewing Questionnaire.

We will contact you to arrange a suitable time to view the property if you meet the referencing criteria and it is safe to do so, in relation to the current Covid-19 restrictions in place.

You view the property.

To assess suitability and perform Right to Rent check.

If you wish to apply, we put your application forward to the landlord and they will decide on whether or not they are happy to proceed to full referencing.  If chosen you will then be sent an online link to formally start the full application process, at this point you will be required to pay 1 weeks worth of rent as your holding deposit (breakdown of all charges are shown on each property page). Once you have paid your holding deposit the property is taken offline whilst we await the results of referencing. Our full referencing process is completed by a third party.

Once your referencing reports come back as a ‘PASS’ we forward on to the landlord of the property for authorisation to proceed to tenancy offer.

Once authorisation has been received from the Landlord we will set your tenancy start date and offer you the tenancy through our online system.  You will at this point be asked to pay the remaining move-in monies via bank transfer.

We meet you at the property to complete sign-up and hand you your keys. Your tenancy officially commences!

I can't recommend Ben and team at Rent Wirral enough. 
They managed my flats for years and completely took the pressure and hassle out of it for me. They are very professional and always kept me informed with any changes.
by Debbie Draper
What an amazing lettings agency. Such wonderful helpful staff. Can't do enough for you! Would recommend 1000% to anyone looking to rent with this agent!!! Fantastic.
by Hayley Lloyd-Jones
I had been managing my flats for over 15 years when a friend introduced me to Rent Wirral. It has taken all of the hassle out of dealing with tenants and collecting rents, not to mention endless hours of time saved. A thoroughly professional service with attention to detail which always goes the extra mile. Result: a new set of tenants all paying their rents on time and looking after my properties. Wonderful.
by John Gordon-Smith
Rent Wirral have fully managed my residential property portfolio for almost 5 years. During that time, they have always responded in a timely manner to any problem big or small, day or night. They have also offered advice and assisted in numerous property transactions both before and during the recent pandemic. I have and will continue to recommend Rent Wirral to other landlords.
by Adam Mairs
Rent Wirral have managed many properties for us over the last 27 years. We really do know the local buy to let market, and these people are the best. If you are looking for a totally professional, honest, reliable and yet competitive management company, then look no further. Irrelevant of having a single property, or a large portfolio.
by John & Lyn Cullen
I've been a tenant with rent wirral for over 5 years, and can't fault them. Always easy to get hold of if I have any issues with my property, and they send people out to resolve these issues in a timely manner. I've had only 1 rent increase during my time at the house, but this wasn't much and my rent is still very reasonable (actually cheaper than local houses) Highly recommended.
by Laura Piercy
I have been working with Rent Wirral for about 5years. The previous agency I used was causing me some concerns and I was recommended to use Rent Wirral. Best decision I made. Everything has been ex exceptionally professional. Finding tenants in a timely manner and ensure all rental admin is handled with no fuss. Would highly recommend.
by Alistair McPherson
They are an excellent letting agency being very professional, friendly and personable. They work collaboratively with tenants on all aspects of setting up and maintaining a tenancy with an excellent attention to detail. They are also very understanding and will help tenants with any queries or concerns they may have. Highly recommended.
by Andrew Richards
Running a successful business means doing everything better than the opposition. Ben does this professionally, competently, efficiently and as such goes the extra mile to create a superb service. Whether you are a landlord, or a tenant you can sleep at night knowing everything is taken care of.
