Regarding your Ad on Gum-tree, i have a lovely studio flat for rent, the flat is clean and it has a washing machine, microwave, kettle, fridge/freezer, table and all other kitchen utensils.

The flat is located at Church Road Leatherhead KT23 3PT, Mole Valley, Surrey. I took the pictures 9 days ago so they reflects the most current condition of the flat. Here are the necessary things you need to know about the rent and deposit.

Rent per month is £550

Security deposit of £500 protected by the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme and it's refundable after the end of your stay in my flat.

Utility { water, gas, council tax, TV license, wi-fi and a secured parking space }.

However, do you have references? The flat is clean so i am looking for a responsible tenant. I am reliable and open, if anything is wrong in the flat, i make sure the problem is quickly rectified. The flat is furnished but i can make it unfurnished or part furnished if prefer.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for the reply. The flat is available and i am renting the property out because i have just moved to Glasgow where i currently live, having worked in Care Home for many years in Surrey . I lost my dad in a ghastly motor accident so i decided to move closer to my family in Glasgow in other to take proper care of my mum. I am not only after the rent but someone that could take good care of my flat.

I am looking for a straight forward prospective tenant because i have been disappointed in many times by some people messing me around with viewing and do not turn up for viewing appointments. However, my solicitor would need some information from you to draft an Assured Tenancy Agreement which you will read, print and bring along with you when coming for the viewing. Details needed are:

Your full name:
Current address:
Preferred move in date:
Mobile number:

Please get back to me with these information so that i can tell you how to proceed. I have another interested candidate but she doesn't sound serious, she came for viewing 5 days ago but i think she didn't have enough money for the security deposit. Let me know if you have other options because i wouldn't want to schedule a viewing with you and get disappointed at the end of the day. Thanks for your interest.

I look forward to hearing from you.
