Anyone can apply to rent a property from Ilchester Estates. By clicking on the Residential and Commercial tabs at the top of this page you will be taken to the details of properties currently available to let on the Estate.
If you cannot find what you are looking for please submit an enquiry by clicking on the enquiry tab. This information will be kept on file and as and when a suitable property becomes available, you will be sent a copy of the letting particulars.
If you are applying to rent a residential property this would be on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy for a minimum term of six months.
For a commercial property it very much depends on the premises, nature of the business and the intended duration of occupation. The type of agreement can range from short term licences to 10 year commercial leases. Please contact the Estate Office to discuss your requirements.
Your deposit will be held by the Estate and protected in the Tenancy Deposit Scheme which is administered by The Dispute Service.

This varies depending on the nature of your tenancy agreement. For residential lettings on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement the tenant is required to maintain the property in the same condition as that at the commencement of the tenancy. The Landlord will keep in repair the structure and exterior of the premises and will keep in proper working order the installations for the supply of water, gas, electricity and sanitation.
For commercial properties this varies depending on the type of agreement and the length of term. Please contact the Estate Office with any specific queries.
For residential tenancies, providing both parties are happy we can re-negotiate a further fixed term or agree to let the tenancy continue month by month as a Statutory Periodic Tenancy.
For commercial leases, the terms of a further fixed term are negotiated.
During the fixed term of a residential tenancy, neither party can bring the tenancy to an end. Once a Statutory Periodic Tenancy, the tenancy can be terminated by the tenant serving the landlord with one full months written notice.
For commercial leases, this very much depends on the terms of the agreement. Please contact the Estate Office to discuss any specific queries.
