If you any questions on our fees, please ask a member of staff.
We will require you to complete a pre application form located here. Should a guarantor be required we will advise. Comprehensive referencing process will be undertaken by our nominated provider and will require your address history for the last three years, income for each applicant and complete a credit check on each individual tenant. In addition we will also require a reference from your existing Landlord or Letting Agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer, 3 months bank statements and proof of National Insurance number. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts. In most cases the process is largely automated in data collection and should provide a speedy and efficient process.
The lease you sign will be an Assured Shorthold, which means that you can stay in the property for the period of the lease (provided you meet all the obligations of the lease). If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given two months’ notice to quit the premises.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair, that you are looking after the property and discuss any problems you may be experiencing. You will be given notification when an inspection is due to be conducted.
In the event of maintenance being required please log on to your PropertyFile at the earliest possible time in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Trades persons will be alerted by the Agent and dependent upon the nature and urgency of the task will respond accordingly. Simple precautionary procedures should then be taken by the tenant to prevent any additional problem arising e.g. turn off water at the stopcock if necessary, isolate electric or gas supplies at the mains where required. PropertyFile will prompt to upload images of the issues.
You cannot have any pets unless we have permission from the landlord/ourselves in writing. You must consult us prior to obtaining a pet and submit a written request to have a pet stating age/type/breed.
YES! You should consider taking out contents insurance to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The Deposit normally equates to 5 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme and will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition without any claim for potential damages beyond fair wear and tear.
As a tenant you are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid in full and on time. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order which will mean payments are paid directly from your bank to our designated account. You will need to cancel the standing order before leaving the property.
Utility bills, including Council Tax is your responsibility unless stated otherwise in the tenancy agreement. You will need to choose your supplier upon moving in and ensure accounts are closed when you vacate.
Once the Landlord has agreed to accept your application (subject to references and contract) we will ask for a holding deposit equating to one week’s rent. Upon successfully passing the referencing stage of the application, the holding deposit paid will count towards the total balance of rent and deposit owed before the tenancy start date. You risk losing your deposit in the event you provide inaccurate or misleading information on your application, fail a right to rent check, do not all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement or unilaterally withdraw your application.
Godiva were brilliant. They used to let my property out with no problems. I’ve now moved away and they still keep me updated. Great staff. Thanks guys
They manage a small portfolio of mine and I have nothing but positive things to say after 3 years of business.
Great Service for tenants. Genuinely nice guys. We went to them in a desperate panic a week before we needed to move after our plans fell through. They were efficient, helpful and went the extra mile to get us in on time. Fees were really reasonable compared to other agents. Once we were in they were still helpful and flexible, easy to get hold of. The move out process has also been smooth so can't fault them at all. Thanks guys!
Great agency in Coventry, looked after my properties for years before I sold them. Great service, highly recommended!
Thank you very much for all your help and support over the last six years.
The services you have provided was of a very high standard. Nice to rent a property without all the stress.
When I relocated to Coventry I rented a property through Godiva for 7 months. The whole letting process was seamless. At every point we were sent clear and concise information. I worked in property for 6 years, dealing with many different agents and landlords professionally, I know that many agents don’t care about tenants once they are in a property but Godiva have the tenants interests in mind just as much of the landlords. Godiva will always be my first port of call should I need a rental property and should be yours too.
One of the best renting experiences I've had. The team is always ready to help with any issues that might come up.
As a new landlord we needed professional advice and guidance on what best to do. Godiva estates were the answer to our prayers, they provided, clear unbiased advice and guidance and have rented our property out within days of agreeing very very reasonalbe terms. We have found both Richard (the owner) and Paul to be very professional and knowledgeable, keeping us upto date with their progress every step of the way. We highly recommend their excellent services to others.
We found these true super heroes!. Rich, Paul and David have gone above and beyond with every single aspect. If you know me personally you will know I don't give compliments lightly 🤣 but these guys have earned every compliment coming and then some. Estate agents are like car mechanics...Many are just there to shaft you and take your money... but then there are the good ones, the ones you can actually trust and are genuinely there to help and help they have!. So if you are in the Coventry area, seriously look no further!
One of the best if not the best estate agent i have dealt with. Paul is a professional to the core. Detailed information provided at every stage and the icing on the cake is their online portal or dashboard where all information are captured; interactive, intuitive and easy to use. Paul is a breath of fresh air and very nice guy. I will recommend.
Paul has been very helpful finding a suitable tenant for my property, providing expert knowledge and a good quality service throughout. As this is a quite a stressful time for most, I felt at ease dealing with Godiva Estates and trusted them from start to finish of the process. Highly recommend them if you're looking to let your property as many of the larger companies never returned my calls.
