Let Only Service
Visit and Agree Rental Value
We like to visit your property to take details of the accommodation and agree a rental valuation. Rents should include ground rents or service charges but exclude council tax and utilities. We answer any questions you may have.
Find Tenant, Viewings, Deposit and References
To find your tenant we will take internal and external digital photographs and immediately upload them onto our web site with a description of the property, check our list of ‘tenant’s waiting list’, use advertising and ‘To Let’ boards if required and place details in our window. Accompanied viewings are arranged or if you prefer arranged with you should you wish to meet the potential tenant. Interested tenants are then given an application form, a deposit equivalent to one calendar month and one week rent is paid, references will be requested and a credit check may be carried out. If the references are less than acceptable we will ask for a guarantor- who must also be approved. We do all that we can to ensure that properties in our care are not let to unsuitable applicants.
Notices and Agreements
We will prepare the tenancy agreement and ask the tenants to sign it. We will sign the agreement on your behalf. Normally we will prepare an agreement for an initial fixed period of six months. After the first six months the tenancy will run on a month to month basis until notice to quit is served. Longer terms are arranged if required.
Move Tenant In and Rent Collection
We will arrange a date for the tenant to move in with you and arrange with you how the rent is to be paid. If you go on to use our full management service, this will be by direct debit from the tenant to our fully insured clients account. Keys will be given and the tenant asked to sign for them. The council and the local water authority are informed of the details of the tenants and the dates they are due to move in.
If the "Letting" is all you have commissioned us to do, this completes our service to you and your tenant.
