As Residential Letting and Managing Agents we provide a comprehensive property letting service and for first time landlords we offer a free no obligation advice session. This will provide an opportunity to discuss the basic requirements of letting your property and also any pitfalls, which may be encountered. If you are thinking of buying a property to let we will be happy to advise you about its suitability.
We receive regular enquiries from prospective tenants and local employers, these are monitored and matched to properties that our Landlords have available to let. We also advertise regularly via the Internet on our website, on Rightmove, Zoopla and social media.
The residential lettings market is very active and many people are renting rather than buying. In addition there are always house owners seeking a short term let as part of a move.
The following pages contain a landlord’s guide to property letting along with details of our terms and conditions. If after reading you have any queries please feel free to call the office and we will be happy to assist in any way we can.
We operate a simple, but highly effective 3 stage process to get your property let!
1 - GETTING TO KNOW YOU
We will book a valuation appointment that usually lasts 1 hour and is a chance for us to discuss your requirements, your legal obligations and our services. More importantly it’s also our opportunity to really work out what type of tenant you are looking for. While renting your house isn’t like dating, we are firm believers in matching your house to the right tenant.
We use our 20 years experience in the lettings market to create that perfect match. Be it a professional family, looking for long term rental with 2 children and a guinea pig or a single professional looking for a 6 month let while completing a work relocation, we will match you to ensure a successful let.
A smooth tenancy, where everyone’s expectations are met is not only simple and stress free but also cost effective.
2 - FINDING THE ONE
Once instructed as your agent we will commence a search for a suitable tenant based on our agreed match criteria. Depending on which service you choose, we will either accompany viewings or make a mutually convenient appointment for you.
As soon as a suitable prospective tenant has been found we will contact you to negotiate the terms and commence the vetting procedure. When satisfactory references, including I.D. verification, are obtained we will interview the prospective tenant to assist us in making a recommendation to you. If you wish we can arrange a meeting between you and the tenant before a decision is made.
