A guide for tenants

Your step-by-step guide to renting a property with Druce.


We’d love to hear from you. You can reach out to ask us for more information about a property that interests you, or simply tell us what you‘re looking for, and we’ll endeavour to find the right home for you.

You can register with us here. When you find a property you are interested in, we will arrange for you to view it, accompanied by one of our experienced and friendly lettings agents, at a time convenient to you. We’ll be happy to answer any questions throughout the process.


After filling out an application form, we will ask you and all your intended co-tenants to provide references in order to establish your financial stability and ability to meet the responsibilities and conditions of the Tenancy Agreement. You will be required to provide the following:

  • A reference from your employer, to include salary details and length of service.
  • A bank reference, comprising a form filled in by you, which Druce then sends to your bank for processing.
  • A screenshot to verify details from the applicant’s bank account (that is, the account from which the applicant plans to pay the rent).
  • For current property renters, a written reference from your current landlord.
  • In the case of applicants who don’t have a current landlord, a written character reference from a person of professional standing such as an accountant, doctor, lawyer, company director who you have known for some time.
  • We’ll also instruct a third-party company to perform an electronic ID and credit history check on you.


When the referencing process is complete and you’ve been approved to rent the property, you’ll be invited to sign the Tenancy Agreement and pay a deposit (typically five or six weeks’ rent) plus the first payment period upfront. You will receive the keys on the start date of the tenancy.

Druce expands its London footprint with five new branches. Central London estate agency Druce has expanded its base with the acquisition of Bective, one of the capital's premier estate agencies. Established in 1822, Marylebone-based Druce has taken over all five of Bective's branches: Kensington, Chelsea, Brook Green, Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill. The branch offices have been rebranded and now form part of the larger Druce business. Druce's UK MD Cory Askew, commented, "This acquisition has enabled us to rapidly expand our presence within Central London, increasing our footprint to six agencies across several prime locations. Bective’s heritage is aligned with our own, and we feel that the combined entity will allow us to reintroduce the Druce brand in the capital."
