2. Find suitable properties

Once you have registered you will be notified of any suitable properties currently available. You will also be informed of any new listings that meet your needs.

3. Viewings

When you have found a property that you would like to see, contact us to arrange a viewing.

4. Make an application

Once you have found the property for you, a ‘Rent Check’ form will need to be completed for each adult that intends to live in the property. Information required on this form includes current and previous addresses, employment details, character reference, bank details etc. For information on charge for this please contact us. The ‘Rent Check’ forms are then sent to an external party to verify. On receipt of satisfactory checks a move in date can then be established and at that point we would require the deposit to secure the property.

5. The lease

Once a move in date is set, we will draw up the lease agreement and arrange an appointment for you to come into the office to read and sign.

6. Admin fee, deposit & rent

An admin fee is charged for drawing up the leases. The first month’s rent and deposit (which is usually the equivalent of one month’s rent) will be required before the leases are signed. Rent is due on a monthly basis. All monies must be cleared funds before the keys are handed over. The deposit will be reimbursed at the end of the tenancy subject to a satisfactory check out report by ourselves if the property is fully managed, or by the landlord if they manage the property.

7. Moving in

If the property is managed by Harmony Homes we will compile an inventory and take meter readings at the property before you move in. You will receive a copy of the inventory and will be asked to check this and return a signed copy to us.
If the property is unmanaged we will provide you with the landlords details. We would recommend you take photos and meter readings of the property on your move in day.

Don't just take our word for it.

I have used Harmony Homes on several occasions and have always found them to be friendly and helpful. I have used them for rentals as a landlord and have recently used them to sell a house. At each time they have been able to carry out the sale or let quickly and without  trouble.

Peter H, Landlord/Vendor

My family and I recently sold our property through Harmony Homes. And we received a totally professional service from the start till completion. And it was during the pandemic so lockdowns which caused delays. However, contact continued throughout so there was never a break down in communication from Harmony Homes during a very challenging time to be selling a house. I would recommend them 100%. Great service from approachable dedicated staff.

Jayne B, Vendor

Would like to recommend Harmony Homes Estate agents, the staff are so lovely everyone that we have spoken to is polite and helpful, all feedback is swift and constructive. Selling a house is a stressful time but at least dealing with pleasant staff makes it easier.

Chris M, Vendor

We have been very impressed with the service we’ve received from everyone at Harmony Homes. Friendly and professional and very knowledgeable about the local market, with prompt and reliable communication. A breath of fresh air in terms of our previous experiences of dealing with the property market. I would highly recommend them for one’s house sale or purchase.

Karen S, Vendor

Diane and the team at Harmony Homes were fantastic from start to finish. They sold our house straight away and found us our perfect home to purchase. I would highly recommend anyone to list their property with Harmony Homes.
