Step-by-Step Letting Guide
We have over 18 years experience managing and renting properties for corporate and private landlords alike. The sector has attracted considerably more regulation over the years and, as a result, has become more difficult for landlords to manage themselves. Over the last few years we have found a growing number of landlords have elected for a fully managed service for peace of mind.
If you are a current landlord or someone interested in exploring renting your house further please contact us today for more advice..
The process is as follows:
1. A free rental assessment
One of our team members will meet you at the property and talk you through the process including how to present your property and what kind of rental return you are likely to expect. Furthermore they will provide a full rental assessment and discuss your expectations of what you require from us. In that way we can ascertain which of our services is best suited to you.
2. Prepare marketing material
Once instructed, we will send out one of our marketing team who will compile the material they need to produce the online marketing and the property book. They will take a range of photos that best represent the property, which will include both macro and micro detail. We have carried our extensive market research with a view to understanding exactly what information prospective tenants need to make a decision to view.
3. Targeting the widest possible market
We advertise on our website and social media ensuring that the maximum number of people see our properties.
4. Accompanied viewings
We accompany all viewings, as we believe that this forms a critical part of the negotiation and referencing processes.
5. Putting forward an offer
We will negotiate on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Once you have agreed to proceed with a tenant we will confirm everything in writing to you and start the referencing process
6. Preparing the legal documentation
We will ensure that all the tenancy agreement is drawn up and signed before the keys are released to the tenant together with the inventory (if applicable).
7. Moving the tenant in
If we manage the property, one of our team members will go accompany the tenant to the property on the move in day and do a check in on the property to make a note of the condition of the property when the tenant moves in. We believe, to protect your and your tenant’s interest, that this is essential. By doing this the condition of the property, fixtures and fittings can be mutually agreed at the point of move in and this reduces the risk of a dispute at the end of the tenancy.
