Application Guidance Notes

We operate a two stage application process.


Stage One

Please submit the online application first of all. One form is required per applicant aged 18 years and over, including all co-tenants who plan on sharing the property with you. Your application will not be considered unless all co-tenants have also applied.


Affordability check


Before you fill in this form, please check your affordability against the rent of this property.

Your annual salary (including that of any co-tenants) should be more than 30 times the monthly rent.


Stage two


Property reservation

If invited to do so, you can pay the equivalent of One Month's Rent in order to reserve the property while referencing checks are taking place. If your references as received within the 48hr appointed timeframe, are found to be unsatisfactory, we will refund the payment to you and the property will be offered to another applicant. This payment is not refundable if you withdraw from this process for any reason, or do not start the tenancy on the agreed date.


Referencing checks, paying for this service, or not, is your choice!

Watson Property do not charge any mandatory tenant referencing fees. You have the option to provide us with referencing documentation yourself, free of charge, alternatively, we offer a paid for outsourced tenant referencing service. This is your choice entirely and is not conditional on your being granted the tenancy.

Detailed instructions for tenant referencing

Your guarantor must be a Northern Ireland homeowner

Without exception, we require your Guarantor to be a Northern Ireland homeowner, and to prove they own in the property in which they reside. We must be in receipt of copies of these documents within the 48hr appointed timeframe.


Your ID & your guarantor's ID

We cannot process your application unless we're in receipt of a scan (or good quality photograph) of your current photographic I.D.* (such as Passport or Driving Licence). Applicants originating from overseas may also be required to supply further documents such as a biometric residence permit or national residence card. This applies to your Guarantor also.

* Your and your Guarantor's original ID and papers must also be made available for our agents/ the landlord to check before signing the Tenancy Agreement.
