Viewing Services

Arranging Viewings

You may use our platform to set up a viewing calendar with your availability or those of the third party who is handling viewings for you.

Viewing parties will register on the platform and provide their details alongside household information and their requirements. We will apply a filter to match your requirements to the applicants before allowing them to request an appointment. We do not verify this information and cannot take responsibility for the accuracy of it.

Appointments requests and confirmations are issued on behalf of the parties and we cannot guarantee attendance or accept any liability in the event of missed appointment and cancellations at short notice.

You agree to respond to all requests in the portal on receipt of the request and to update this should any changes be made either in the portal or outside of it so that our reminders are correct and the parties can access the offer platform following viewings.

You remain responsible for checking the identity and details provided with any parties booking through the Make Ur Move portal and for providing access at the agreed time and date.

Accompanying Viewings

We offer a third party viewing service to accompany viewings. Where you instruct this service you remain responsible for access arrangements and for managing enquiries from potential tenants and applicants. Our service is limited to providing a viewing agent for the service you instructed at a pre-arranged date and time given a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. Cancellations within 24 hours result in a charge of 100% of the service fees.

Third party agents ae not employed by Make Ur Move and are instructed to show potential tenants around your property. You are responsible for ensuring this is clean and presentable and providing access for this to take place. Feedback will be provided and any questions that applicants raise will be passed along to you.

The service does not include key collection, holding, key safe installation or removal. Fees will apply in addition for this service and will be confirmed to you once we have a full list of your requirements.

Where you purchase a bundle you may be entitled to a refund of any unused slots. If we agree a refund then any viewings completed shall be charged from the bundle at the individual viewing rate with any balance returned to your original payment method.

No refunds are due where potential tenants do not attend at the agreed time.

Managed Viewings

Subscription and Fully Managed properties have the option to purchase a managed viewing service starting at £500 including VAT.

A managed viewing service includes Make Ur Move staff handling enquiries to manage all viewings on your behalf provided that access is readily available. Key holding is charged as extra and starts at £190 including VAT. Key holding may include installation of a key safe or instructions to a nearby key holding facility.

The viewings will be handled by third party viewing agents local to your property (subject to availability). Follow ups will be made by the Make Ur Move team and any offers will be notified to you upon receipt. You agree to review all offers and promptly update them to confirm if accepting, negotiating or declining so that we can ensure viewings are only carried out where there is a real opportunity to apply for a tenancy.

A maximum of 10 viewing slots is provided within these services and no refunds are due in the event of less than this being utilised. Once 10 slots have been used the managed viewing service will end and where keys are held by a local key holding service you agree to collect these or pay a charge of £35 per month for holding.

Tenant Referencing


We will instruct checks to be completed via one of our partners. 

Specific to Landlord

Acceptance of all offers are subject to satisfactory references and contract and does not guarantee a tenancy of any sort.

Collection of a holding deposit and reference checks is included as part of a Subscription or Fully Managed service. You may instruct us to carry out reference checks as part of any Standard service and choose to add on collection of a holding deposit for additional fees as listed on the site.

Reference checks will consider credit history, income references and landlord references. The completed report will provide you with an indication of the suitability of applicants in relation to the specific tenancy offered.

You have the right to withdraw acceptance of offers at any time and will incur a penalty to cover our reasonable costs where references have been started even if not yet complete.

Where the tenant pays a holding deposit and we can demonstrate that they have deliberately provided misleading information or fail to disclose any information which leads to a failed reference then a penalty fee equivalent to the cost of reference checks shall be retained from the holding deposit.

You may be entitled to raise a claim from any holding deposits you have asked us to collect on your behalf for your costs or losses in the event that the applicants provided false or misleading information to be accepted for a tenancy provisionally. To do this you must notify us in writing and we will then notify the applicants of your intention and process payments accordingly. You agree that any claims will be in accordance with the Tenant Fee Act 2019 and accept responsibility for any proceedings which may arise following complaint or legal process should the claim be found to breach the applicants rights. Where any award for fee reimbursement or compensation is made on the part of the applicants by an authority or court then you agree to pay these costs.

Specific to tenant/guarantor

Acceptance of an offer to let does not grant or provide guarantee of a tenancy.

When requested you will make payment of a holding deposit within 24 hours of notification that your application is accepted subject to checks and agree to be bound by the terms as displayed in your account on the website as part of the holding deposit agreement. This holding deposit amount will be equivalent to one weeks rent.

You agree to provide information when requested and that this information is true to the best of your knowledge to enable us to consider your suitability before commencement of reference checks. Failure to provide this information at the early stage may lead to an unsatisfactory result on the checks themselves which may result in fees being deducted from your holding deposit.

Where you require a guarantor, you are responsible for determining that they meet the requirements in order to act as a guarantor. You agree to obtain their permission to provide details for a pre-check before proceeding to a full check. A failed guarantor check will result in a declined application.

Should your application fail as a result of providing false, misleading information or failing to provide information which affects your suitability then a penalty fee equivalent to that which is set out in your holding agreement on the website shall be retained from the holding deposit to cover the reasonable costs incurred by either us or the Landlord.

Where your application is successful you agree to use the holding deposit towards your first month’s rent or full deposit which will be protected.

You agree to provide all necessary information within 72 hours as requested to assist the checks. After such time if we are unable to complete checks for any reason then you agree that your application may be closed, and the property remarketed. Penalty fees to cover the cost of checks shall be recovered from the holding deposit before return to you.

You can withdraw your offer at any time and will pay a penalty fee to cover the reasonable cost of reference checks per person that either us or the Landlord have incurred. Should the Landlord incur any losses as a result of withdrawal then these may be recovered from your holding deposit.

Tenancy Documentation

You have the option of using the digital document service which we shall provide. All completed documents shall be emailed to you on completion and you will be responsible for their safe storage under general data protection principles (GDPR).

You may create documents by logging into the portal and inputting all the required data, you are responsible for checking and confirming this is correct before issuing the document. Where the documents include mistakes requiring a resend you will pay a fee to cover the cost of £35.

You accept that this document is generic with limited amendments possible. Where you need additional changes to the core terms or a specialized contract then you will arrange your own tenancy contract.

Provided documents do not come with any guarantee of their effectiveness in courts or tribunals for the purposes of possession as you are required to carry out several additional checks and steps.

You may purchase and instruct a tenancy document pack without using any other Services and agree to obtain the authority of the parties to the document to share their data for the purposes of providing this service.

You agree to check these documents to satisfy yourself that they are fit for purpose and signed before handing over keys or paying any funds for the tenancy.

Where you instruct documents under a Subscription or Fully Managed service we will issue to the tenants any additional documents required for compliance on the basis that these are available to us in the Make Ur Move portal. You agree to provide such documents for this pack as required, including safety certificates. If these are not provided, then you agree to provide them directly to the tenant at the outset of the tenancy.

We do not carry out Right to Rent checks as standard or verify physical ID of tenant/s and guarantor/s you agree to complete these checks.

Deposit Collection & Lodging

Deposit collection and lodging is carried out where we have completed reference checks and the tenancy is a new tenancy as part of the Subscription or Fully Managed service.

A charge of £35 applies for deposit collections and lodging where we are not providing a Subscription or Managed service. 

We will hold any funds received in a client account.

We will create the deposit with a custodial scheme with Deposit Protection Service (DPS) for Subscription & Standard services and Tenancy Deposit Scheme(TDS) for Managed services. Prescribed information and a copy of the deposit certificate shall be provided to your tenants with an opportunity to sign as required.

Should you wish to use an insured scheme or My Deposits you agree to collect and serve the appropriate paperwork yourself.

Managed services include holding the deposit throughout the tenancy for all other collections once lodged we will require your DPS Landlord/Agent ID number to transfer this deposit to your own account to be held for the duration of the tenancy.

If there are errors in the details which the deposit is lodged under, you and the tenant agree that the deposit will be released to us in full so that it may be registered again correctly.

Where we are not provided with the transfer information we may make a charge to hold the deposit on your behalf to cover our administrative and reconciliation costs. This would be £60 per year or part of that this is held after the first 60 days of the tenancy.

Alternative Deposit Guarantees

A cash deposit is required in all tenancies to be paid at the start of the tenancy unless by agreement a deposit guarantee is provided in its place. Failure to provide either of these will result in a delay to the tenancy start.

We partner with Zero Deposit which provides a deposit guarantee scheme.

ZDG: Zero Deposit Guarantee sold through Zero Deposit ("ZD"), a trading name of Global Property Ventures Limited, and provided by Great Lakes Insurance SE which the Tenant may, at the Tenant's option, purchase as a substitute for the Cash Deposit. The terms and conditions of the ZDG are set out in detail in the ZDG documentation provided to the Tenant and Landlord by ZD. For copies of the ZDG documentation, contact help@zerodeposit.com

We provide the option to tenants as standard; landlords will need to opt out of this service upon registration if they do not wish to accept this.

Where the tenancy has multiple tenants they must all choose either a cash deposit or deposit guarantee and cannot have a combination.

A cash deposit equivalent to the maximum amount permitted under the Tenant Fee Act 2019 shall be required immediately where a guarantee is cancelled during a tenancy.

If you are unable to provide evidence of these checks and service your claim will be rejected. Where a claim is rejected no refund of fees paid will be due.

Rent Protection

·        The Tenant makes any payment of rent to you or Make Ur Move which has been covered by an insurable payout

·        You fail to carry out actions which will support a claim in judgement against a tenant which would therefore prevent the insurers to recover their payouts.

·        You take any action which impacts the successful outcome of a legal claim against the tenant/s in the Courts. Including but not limited to, failing to keep the property in repair or taking illegal steps to recover possession

·        Where information comes to light which had it been available from the outset would have resulted in a declined claim under the policy.
