An Accurate Appraisal
Letting your property successfully starts by establishing the correct rental value. That’s where our experience and professionalism come to the fore! A member of our staff will provide you with accurate advice to ensure local market forces are considered to ensure a speedy and successful let.
Choosing a Service that Suits you
We offer two levels of service. An introductory service and a fully managed service. We are committed to adhering to strict regulatory guidelines so you can be assured of the best quality and standards, whichever option you choose
Marketing your Property
We need to offer your property to the largest number of possible tenants and maximise its potential. Consequently, we advertise with multiple photos, floorplans and room sizes. These are used on Rightmove.co.uk and Zoopla.co.uk and also on our own website.
Compliance for Marketing
Your property must meet UK’s legal safety requirements and standards. We ensure our landlords are kept up to date with the latest legislation – it’s all part of the service. We will work with you on the essentials such as gas safety certificates, smoke detectors, energy performance certificates etc.
Our staff will accompany potential tenants ensuring your property is shown to its best advantage. We know what we are doing – so you can trust us to secure the best possible return for your property.
Selecting your Tenant
Choosing the correct tenant for you is hugely important to us, so we undertake the strictest of selection criteria which includes an independent referencing company for credit and financial checks, employer’s references, previous landlord references and identity checks for proof of residency. Only once these checks are satisfactory, can we then recommend the tenants to you.
Finalising the Paperwork
Once we have selected a tenant it is very important that all the required paperwork is prepared correctly. Not only will we produce a tenancy agreement we will also ensure that all the supporting documentation such as deposit certification and protection, prescribed information etc is completed.
Signing the Tenancy
On the first day of the tenancy we will ensure that the tenant signs all relevant forms, that all payments have been recieved and that all legal requirements have been satisfied. An Inventory and Schedule of Condition is carefully completed and supplied to you and the tenant.
A Smooth Running Tenancy
If you are using our fully managed service – just relax and we will take care of everything for you. We are a dedicated team all working for you to ensure the smooth running of your tenancy. We deal with property maintenance issues and collect and make the rental payments. We routinely inspect the property to ensure the tenants are maintaining your property to satisfactory standards and of course we will organise the final inspection and deposit refunds when your tenants vacate.
