Flick & Son is here to help make your property rental run as smoothly as possible. We have extensive experience in managing property throughout East and North Suffolk and will work with you to match the right home to your needs.

Below are a few pointers as a guide to how we proceed once you have found a property you are interested in.

Information for Tenants


We will make arrangements for you to view the property, either with the existing tenant, the landlord or a member of the Flick & Son team who will show you around.

Application form

Once you have decided to proceed with a tenancy we can either provide application forms or you can download them from this website. We will need a form filled in by every person aged 18 or over who will be living at the property.

The forms should be returned to our Saxmundham office together with the correct applicant fee.

Reference and credit checks

After we receive your application we can begin reference and credit checks. If our reference agency will only accept your application with a guarantor, we will issue them with further forms, which will incur an additional charge.

Once referencing starts we are unable to refund any fees. If there are multiple applications for the same property, the landlord will be given basic details of each application and they will decide with whom they wish to proceed. If you are unsuccessful, your forms and fee will be returned in full.

How long will it take?

When forms and all fees have been received we will put the property on hold and take up your references. This normally takes 7 to 10 days and we should then be able to confirm a start date for your tenancy.

Tenancy agreement

On the day your tenancy is due to start, we ask you to come to our Saxmundham office to sign the tenancy agreement, pay your first months rental and set up standing order mandates for future payments which are made in advance on the same day each month. We will then hand you the keys and you are free to move in.
