The Residency – our tenant membership club

Whether you're a first-time renter, relocating, moving in with your partner or need a bigger family home, Leaders’ Residency club offers something for all tenants. 

    • Saving you money - No Deposit option

      Struggling to save a deposit for your new home? Find out more about Leaders’ No Deposit Option, which will allow you to move into a new home sooner than you think. Plus, to help reduce day-to-day costs, Residency members get access to exclusive discounts on a range of products and services, including a Virgin Media bundle.

    • Protecting you

      Residency members can access free and impartial legal advice with our Legal Helpline. If renting alone, we can help draw up a Cohabitation Agreement to protect everyone's interests, and look after your loved ones with a property drafted will, prepared by a panel of qualified solicitors. 

    • Planning your future

      Our partnership with Experian means your rental payments will be included on your credit history. So if your goal is to buy a home, speak to one of Leaders’ mortgage advisors, who will offer advice on how to get onto the property ladder. And you can keep an eye on the future with a free Credit Score Revie, as well as a Workplace Pension Review.

Once you've chosen the home you want to rent, you need to be prepared to act quickly. Ensure you have all the necessary documents ready, including a form of identification.

You’ll need to provide your prospective landlord and letting agent with references, to confirm that you have previously rented without any major problems.

Step 6:Pay your deposit

Unless you’ve opted for our No Deposit Option, you’ll need to pay your deposit in full to secure your new home. Leaders uses a specialist independent company to protect your deposit.

Agreement

Step 7:Sign your Tenancy Agreement

You will need to check and sign your Tenancy Agreement – this legally binding document sets out the terms of the tenancy, to protect both you and your landlord.

Move in

Step 8:Move in

It’s time to move in! If the property is managed by Leaders, our Move Managers will give you all the details you need, including when to collect the keys for your new home.

Step 9:During your tenancy

If your home is managed by Leaders, we’ll arrange a couple of property visits throughout the year, to check everything is in order.

Step 10:Renew your tenancy

If your landlord agrees, we can arrange to renew tenancy. But if you don’t wish to stay in the property, we can arrange a check-out with an independent inventory company to ensure the property has been left in an appropriate condition.
