This service guides a landlord through the initial stage of letting the property to the point where the keys are handed over to the tenants. From this point on, the landlord would ‘look after’ or manage the property themselves.

The letting service includes:

  1. An initial assessment of the property including  advice from experienced staff on how best to promote your property.
  2. Advertising on websites in the local newspaper and window advertising in our office.
  3. A ‘to let’ board can be placed at the property if required.
  4. Our staff would interview prospective applicants to assess suitability before viewing the property.
  5. References would be taken up once an applicant(s) has been found, these would generally consist of an employment, a previous/current landlord. This however would depend on individual circumstances. Once references are received for an applicant the landlord is contacted to confirm that they are happy for the letting to proceed. Only after careful consideration would an applicant be accept. As a let only the landlord would need to provide a deposit I.D number to confirm which scheme the deposit would be protected, this information will also be drawn up into the tenancy agreement. Also an E.P.C and a Gas Safety Certificate if needed must be provided.
  6. An assured shorthold tenancy agreement would be drawn up and signed by the tenant(s) as appropriate.
  7. Once all paperwork is signed and keys handed over to the tenant(s), the initial rent payment and deposit payment would be sent through to the landlord with the appropriate paperwork, you will then deal with the tenant(s) directly yourself, you will however need to take necessary steps in registering the tenancy deposit and sending a certificate of registration to your tenant(s) within 30 days.
