The Letting Process in 5 Easy Steps
1. Rent Valuation
We will visit your property to discuss in detail all aspects of letting and determine the rental yield of the property. To do this we take into consideration the size, presentation, facilities, and location. This valuation is completely free.
2. Property Preparation
Tenants make their decision on whether to rent a property within a few minutes. It is important that a property is well presented to create a comfortable and safe living space. The property should be cleaned thoroughly, de-cluttered and the décor as neutral and light as possible. By optimising the property’s appearance, it will receive more market interest.
3. Accompanied Viewings
We will arrange appointments and accompany prospective tenants on viewings. You will be updated after each viewing as to interest expressed by potential tenants.
4. Letting Agreed
Once a suitable tenant has been found and the terms of the let agreed with you, each prospective tenant will be required to complete an online application form. We work in partnership with an independent referencing agency that will carry out a credit check and compile a reference report which we will send to you; we will also fulfill the required Right to Rent and ID checks.
5. Paperwork & Compliance
In recent years there have been important changes in legislation surrounding lettings and so it is our job to ensure our clients are up to date with all the latest rules and regulations. We will prepare the tenancy agreement and associated documentation and notify you of your health and safety obligations and arrange checks as required. We will collect the move in monies including a security deposit and will arrange for a schedule of condition to be prepared and signed at check-in and for the deposit to be registered in a government recognised scheme.
