Guide To Tenants

Finding a property in Reading

The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. If your search is not particularly urgent, we log your details onto our tenant database so that we can contact you when suitable properties become available. It is wise to start looking at least a month before you wish to move, as properties are viewed and reserved quickly in this busy market.

Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months.

There is no charge for registering with us as an Agency. However, if you decide to rent a property through us there is an Agency fee which covers referencing, administration and a contribution towards tenancy agreements and paperwork. This fee is payable on the day of you reserve a property and is £240.00 including VAT for one applicant and multiples of £60.00 including vat for further applicants.


Viewings are booked in advance at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends. We always accompany the viewings as there may or may not be existing tenants still living at the property.

Reserving the Property

Once you have decided to rent a property through us you will need to reserve it by paying a reservation fee. THIS IS NON REFUNDABLE unless the application falls through due to no fault of yours, i.e. if the Landlord declines to grant the tenancy. Should your references be unsatisfactory the application will be rejected and your reservation fee will be retained by A. M. Property Management (UK) Ltd to cover administration and other costs. The reservation fee will come off the total balance due on the day of signing.


As a minimum we require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. In addition a credit check will be undertaken. We use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.


Rents are quoted calendar monthly, and the rent due date is the day that your tenancy commences. However, to ensure that our clients receive cleared funds on the rent due date your standing order into our company bank account will be predated by two days. The tenant is also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity, Television and Telephone costs.


A deposit of one and a half month’s rent will be required from the tenant as a deposit and will be registered within the Deposit Protection Scheme within 28 days of the start date.
