Our letting service is able to provide a complete package to landlords. From the initial valuation through to finding suitable tenants, comprehensive referencing and checking them into your property. For additional peace of mind we can manage your property to ensure the tenants maintain their obligations for the duration of the contract.
The first step is to contact us for a free no obligation valuation where we can provide advice on all aspects of your property. Whether renting or selling first impressions are essential in making certain we achieve the best possible price. Our representative will quickly and easily explain how to achieve this during the valuation as well as covering what will be required legally whether renting or selling. We can arrange all the necessary documents from EPC’s, gas safety certificates and assist in protecting deposits and for larger properties HMO’s.
Some points to consider before letting your property.
Is your property held on a lease?
If you hold your property on a lease, you must ascertain whether sub-letting is permitted, whether you are required to obtain written permission to sub-let, and, if so, the conditions governing such sub-letting.
Does your property have a mortgage?
In most cases when a property is subject to a bank loan or mortgage, written permission is required to sub-let the property. It is your responsibility as the landlord to obtain the necessary permission.
The tenancy agreement normally requires that you have adequate insurance cover for buildings, contents and public liability and that you advise the insurance company that you are letting the property.
If you are relocating elsewhere in the UK, we recommend that you arrange for the Post Office to redirect mail to your new address to avoid delays and reduce the risk of identity theft.
Inventory / Cleaning
An inventory accurately recording the state and condition of the property and its contents will be prepared by an independent inventory clerk. Please note that unless we manage the property, it is your responsibility to ensure that the property and the contents are professionally cleaned before the letting commences. The tenancy agreement requires that the tenant returns the property and all contents at the termination of the tenancy in the same condition as recorded at the start, save for fair wear and tear.
