To value your property for rental is totally free, we will give you an honest opinion as to its potential value & what we expect it to achieve. We have years of experience in the local property rental market and would welcome the opportunity of meeting you.
Once we receive instructions from you, we will discuss a marketing plan with you and advise you on how best to prepare your property for letting using our expertise to ensure it is presented at its best to potential tenants. Your property will be displayed in our office window, featured on our very user-friendly website, linked to a network of well-known internet property portals presenting your property to thousands of potential tenants, marketing your property 24/7. For any applicants enquiring at our offices we provide them with full colour details of your property, which is also emailed to any potential applicants who register their details with us
We are committed, dedicated and constantly review our database of applicants to promote your property correctly & effectively encourage viewings. We accompany all viewings, allowing us the opportunity to interview prospective tenants at a very early stage; you don’t need to meet applicants if you don’t want to, just leave that to us.
We use an independent professional company to obtain full references for any potential tenants, which include credit searches, employment/income verification for both tenants and guarantors, if required to assess affordability, together with previous/current landlord’s references for character assessment.
Shortly before the commencement of the tenancy we will take meter readings and produce an inventory of the property, which will be supported by a photographic record.
Our fully compliant tenancy agreement has been written in conjunction with our solicitors and offers full protection for both landlords and tenants.
A security deposit is collected by us and protected by the Deposit Protection Service, in accordance with current legislation. As part of our full management service we will collect the monthly rental payments and pay the net amount directly into your nominated bank account. Our computer software package will generate full detailed statements that can be posted or emailed directly to you.
For your peace of mind, and as part of our full management service, a quarterly internal property inspection will be carried out. You will receive confirmation once this has been done which will include advice on any maintenance and any on-going repair issues which may require attention. We have a team of trusted contractors available should their services be required.
At the end of the tenancy agreement we will arrange a checkout inspection of the property to ensure that the property has been left in good order and to highlight any damages that may be chargeable against the outgoing tenants.
We hope that this information has been informative and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
