Our Viewings Policy
Our three-step Viewings Policy briefly comprises the following:1. Familiarise yourself with the property
IMPORTANT: We cannot arrange a physical viewing until we receive written confirmation from you that you have read and can comply with our Viewings Policy.
Please take the time to read through the full details of our Viewings Policy as detailed below:
1. Familiarise yourself with the property

2. Affordability and offer level
Financing the purchase or rental of a property is not always straightforward and applicants must establish their affordability prior to arranging a physical viewing.
Please also consider that, due to current market conditions, properties are very often selling and letting at their asking price and sometimes for more.

Advice for prospective tenants
Reades operates a three-stage application process.
Prior to arranging a physical viewing, we will conduct a brief pre-tenancy interview (Stage 1), the outcome of which will determine whether a physical viewing is necessary.
In addition to providing your contact details, you will be asked to divulge information about your current and proposed residential status, and your financial position*.
Stage two is the physical viewing, which could be conducted by either the landlord or Reades depending on which service plan the landlord subscribes to.
Information provided in the first and second stage will be verified in the third - the formal referencing stage - and any discrepancies could jeopardise the success of your application.
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, all pre-tenancy interviews will be conducted over the phone until further notice.
