Tenant Guide

Rent Information

Rent must be paid on time every month as agreed within the tenancy contract, which is signed prior to check in by both parties agent/Landlord and Tenant.

We will request the 1st months rent as a deposit against the property.  Once the deposit is recieved we will take the property off the market, proceed with the application and obtain references.

We will require the following from you:

  • Photo Id such as a Passport or Drivers Licence.
  • Your PPSN.
  • A reference from your previous landlord.
  • A Bank reference.
  • Employers Reference or Accountants reference.
  • Your last Pay Slip.

In certain circumstances a guarantor may be required, usually a parent or gaurdian. (see below). Please note that our referencing process is standard procedure for every applicant and the application process can take anything between 24 hours to 7 days to complete. As soon as referencing is complete to arrange a time and date for you to check in, collect your keys and sign the tenancy agreement.

We can only reserve a property for a maximum of 28 days; this is at the landlord’s discretion. Please be aware that until a deposit is paid in full we will continue to show the property to prospective tenants and so you run the risk of losing the property to another prospective tenant.


A guarantor is needed for Students or for Tenants whose annual salary does not satisfy the rent versus affordability ratio requirement. A guarantor is usually a parent or relative that is willing to sign a consent form stating that should you default on the rent for whatever reason they are then liable for the outstanding amount. The Guarantor has to be an Irish resident.


Should your application be successful the balance of the rent (usually 1 Month in advance) will be payable prior check in: this is usually paid, at the latest, the day you collect your keys. This amount must be also paid in cleared funds, eg. banker’s draft, cash. Cheques will not be accepted.


One month’s rent is required in advance and as above must be paid in full in cleared funds.
Rent is to be paid on a monthly basis usually by standing order on each subsequent month in respect to the original move in/contract date. For example, if you moved into the property on the 1st April, your monthly rent will be due on the 1st of each month thereafter.

William Quinlan Auctioneers will provide you with a standing order form on the day you check in.
You will input your bank details and sign the form of which we will then send off to your bank.
It is your responsibility to ensure your bank has set this up correctly to avoid missing your rent payment date as this is something we are unable to do. You can do this by contacting your bank directly. Please Note: Late rent payments will result in a late payment charge and will be deducted from your deposit.
