Landlord services  

We have three main services relating to letting properties, these are a full management service, a let only service and an advertise only service all of which are detailed below. We also provide insurance services and valuation services both specifically for the residential lettings industry. We are happy to tailor a service to your needs and can discuss this with you when we look at the property for rent.

We offer a free property appraisal and rental valuation service, during this we will provide advice & tips on how you might maximise the potential income from your property. We will also explain your legal obligations as a landlord as well as describing our services and fees. Please just contact our office on 01229 83 1111, unfortunately we cannot book these appointments via email.  

Full management Letting Agent's Service

A full management service is designed to ensure you have as little to do with the property as possible. We ensure you receive as high as possible rent paid in full, on time and that property is looked after and maintained. Specifically it involves the following although listing everything we might do is impossible!

  • Significant promotion of the property through various media & accompanied viewings
  • Tenant vetting & referencing including significant credit and personal checks
  • Formation of legal documents regarding the lease between you and the tenant
  • Composition of a thorough inventory of the property and contents
  • Formal agreement of condition of property with tenant at beginning of tenancy
  • Collection and administration of all rents and deposits with monthly statements
  • Regular property inspections with written feedback to you every time (ten weekly -more than any other agent we know)
  • Organisation of maintenance and repairs upon your instruction
  • Organisation of all legally required safety checks upon your instruction
  • Recording of all activities relating to the tenancy on bespoke computer systems
  • Final inspections of the property with the tenant present to agree any deposit deductions
  • Arrangement of any cleaning/repairs at the end of any tenancy
  • Re-direction of mail from previous tenants and other parties
  • Free advice and updates on changes within property law and the market in general

 

Let-Only Service

A let only service is for landlords who are happy to manage everything themselves but just need help finding the right tenant and ensuring your legal standing is sound. We do not recommend this for people with no previous experience.

  • Significant promotion of the property through various media & accompanied viewings
  • Tenant vetting & referencing including significant credit and personal checks
  • Formation of legal documents regarding the lease between you and the tenant
  • Composition of a thorough inventory of the property and contents
  • Collection and administration of any deposits via recognised deposit protection scheme
  • Formal agreement of condition of property with tenant at start of tenancy

 

Advertise only service - an ideal service for professional landlords

This involves advertising a residential or commercial property for rent and passing on all enquiries to you until the property is let.(subject to a maximum term)  You would handle viewings, leases and everything else. The advertising is our full range which includes ALL major property portals online, Google Adwords, local radio and the Evening mail. This is charged as a one off fee payable before we commence advertising, this is an ideal service for experienced landlords.

We can still produce leases, move tenants in/out, lodge deposits or prepare inventories etc for you but would charge individually for these services allowing you to choose exactly what you want.
