Letting Your Property
Looking to rent your property on a short, medium or long term basis?
We can assist with the complete lettings process, from pre-marketing advice to comprehensive marketing of the property, securing viable tenants, and providing all the administrative support to process the tenancy application, including thorough referencing, property pre-tenancy preparation, and compilation of the required documentation.
Our ‘Let Only’ service includes collecting initial move in funds, deposit protection and optional ongoing rent collection as well as renewal services. Additionally, we take all the necessary steps to ensure all landlord responsibilities are legally satisfied (EPC Certificates, Gas Certification, etc), as well as the more aesthetic elements such as professional cleaning services, inventory checks and general property presentation.
We also offer a comprehensive 'Managed Service', comprising all the elements of the Let Only service, supplemented by providing a dedicated team member for the property administration. This includes rent collection and arrears management, a key holding service, management and liaison regarding maintenance, ad-hoc repairs and outgoing payments to registered contractors, supervision of the tenant check-in and check-out process, bi-annual management inspections and being available in the case of emergencies.
We understand that above all, you want to know your property is being well maintained with trustworthy tenants.
Our dedicated, efficient and reliable team will always be available to provide support and deliver to your expectations.
The Renting Process
Whether you're renting for the first time, or have plenty of experience, we're here to help you find the perfect pad to settle into.
We can support your property search, from identifying your preferred area and understanding your budget, arranging and accompanying you on viewings, and submitting a formal offer to the landlord.
Then we can explain what to expect from making the offer to completing the tenancy agreement, and all the steps in between - including referencing, Right to Rent checks, and paying the tenancy deposit through to understanding and signing the tenancy agreement.
We can also assist with the move in arrangements, sorting out utilities and checking eveything is ready for you when you collect the keys.
