Why rent through Swift?

Flexible viewings

Some 85% of our viewings are on evenings or weekends. And we won’t waste your time — we ask questions to check the property suits you before we book a slot.

Responsive

We’re swift (pun fully intended) to act and resolve problems: 24-hour emergency callouts, trusted tradesmen and regular updates.


Respect

We’ve been tenants, too. We treat you with the same respect as we do our landlords — so we can build a long-term relationship of trust.


Professional and reliable, always happy to help — I would recommend Swift to tenants and landlords alike.

Deposits

Holding deposit

We ask for a refundable holding deposit to reserve the property. (Scroll down for refund policy.)

1 weeks’ rent

per property

Full deposit

One working day before check-in, you pay your full deposit and first month’s rent. As required by law, we submit your deposit to the Deposit Protection Service.

5 weeks’ rent

less the holding deposit

Frequently asked questions

If the reference checks fail, £250 of the holding deposit will be withheld and the difference refunded.

If the tenant decides not to proceed with the property, the full holding deposit will be withheld.

If the landlord decides not to proceed with the tenancy for any reason other than a reference check failure, then the holding deposit will be refunded to the tenant in full.

The Swift process for tenants

1. Viewing

View your chosen property at a time that suits you — even during an evening or weekend.

2. Offer

Present your offer to Swift, including a proposed move-in date and tenancy period. We negotiate the terms with the landlord.

3. Checks and fees

If your offer is accepted, pay the holding deposit (1 weeks’ rent). Provide your referencing information online.

4. Deal

If all checks come back fine, the tenancy is confirmed.

5. Contract

All parties review the tenancy agreement and sign this contract securely online.

6. Payment

Pay your deposit (5 weeks’ rent less the holding deposit) and the first month’s rent into Swift’s client account one working day before check-in.

7. Move in

On move-in day, an independent clerk hands you the keys and walks you through the property’s contents and condition. You sign the check-in report. Then it’s time to unpack those boxes. Welcome to your new home!
