Letting process for landlords
Letting property does not need be stressful. When using the right agent, it should be painless and enjoyable. Using a specialist letting agent will make all the difference. We’re experts in our field and as lettings is our only business, everything we do is geared towards minimising void periods and maximising rental income for our landlords whilst providing the first class level of customer service our landlords have come to expect. There are 6 simple steps to letting your property...
1. Choose your agent
All good agents are recognised by the leading professional bodies governing their industry. We’re fully accredited members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and The Property Ombudsman for Lettings (TPO). It’s also important to use an agent with expertise. We’re specialists in lettings and everything we do is geared towards minimising void periods and maximising rental income for our landlords.
2. Get maximum exposure
It’s vital your property reaches serious tenants so we invest heavily in advertising. We have a significant online presence and our landlords properties reach thousands of tenants via the leading internet property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation. The end result is a faster let at the best possible price.
3. Take legal guidance
With so much red tape and legislation governing the industry, landlords face a minefield of legal responsibilities. Breaches of certain types of legislation often have criminal sanctions attached resulting in fines or imprisonment for the landlord. Therefore, it’s essential that all relevant procedures specific to your property are followed. Because we are specialists in lettings, we can guide you through each and every piece of legislation that applies to your particular property.
4. Find suitable tenants
Finding quality tenants means conducting thorough referencing checks. Leading letting agents will independently verify the identity, status and background of each applicant. No stone should be left unturned to ensure the applicants are who they say they are and are capable of paying the rent. We only recommend the very best candidates to our landlords. Our in house referencing standards are stringent because when it comes to our landlords’ properties, there’s no room for error.
5. Tenancy paperwork
It takes an expert to know how to reflect the workings of UK tenancy laws within lettings documentation. We are experts in drawing up legally binding and accurate tenancy agreements and paperwork, such as the inventory, to give our landlords the very best service to protect their property and income stream. We take care of all the necessary paperwork on behalf of our landlords - regardless of which service you choose.
6. Rent and deposit
The first month’s rent and deposit should be taken before the keys are released and a standing order for the remaining rent set up by your agent. Landlords are legally required to safeguard tenants’ deposits under an insured or custodial Government Tenancy Deposit Scheme. We’re members of the DPS and all deposits we take on behalf of our landlords are protected in this way at no additional cost.

JON & CLAIRE
“The best Letting agency in the region. Intire have been managing our property in Portishead since 2011 and I am full of praise for them. They are proactive in their approach, always quick to respond, have a great rapport with the tenants and thorough in their administration. When they put the property on the rental market how they advertised it and the marketing material they produced was top class. They are thourough in their vetting of their tenants. Living overseas I am con?dent to leave my property in the competent hands of Intire and secure they will manage and look after it as a professional Letting agency should.”
“Excellent team. Would award 10 stars if it were possible, I'm that impressed! Efficient, polite, knowledgeable, helpful and always one step ahead. Would (and have) recommended to friends and family. Thank You for showing what good service means.”
“I have trusted Intire for a few years now to manage a property I let out and have received nothing but excellent service. Having used other letting agents before, Intire's attention to detail and pro-active approach has put others I have used to shame. I can honestly recommend Intire Letting Agents for Landlords and from the feedback I have received from tenants of mine, for tenants also.”
“Having recently entered the lettings market as a first time landlord, I feel very fortunate to have worked with Intire. The staff are friendly and extremely supportive and I was very impressed with the proactive and efficient service I received. My property let extremely quickly and I was kept fully informed of all developments throughout the process. A massive thanks to all the team!”

“Nothing but the highest quality service from Intire. I have been a tenant in the past and now use their fully managed service for our rental home, I would defiantly recommend them to friends and family!”
“As a landlord with properties in Bath, I use Intire. I have found the team at Intire to always be professional and incredibly efficient. As letting agents go, they are top of their game. They know the market very well and always have a good stock of tenants on their books. Both sets of tenants for my two Bath apartments were found, referenced and moved in within 10 days. Ive always been very pleased with them. Highly recommended.”
“Atif, Kirsty and the team have let two of my properties to multiple tenants over the past 4 years, they are by far the most professional letting agency I have come across. Intire focus on delivering a great service to their landlords and tenants, They were so thorough in their approach to letting my properties but this didn't cause any delay in them taking the necessary actions and finding good quality tenants immediately. First living overseas and now in London I have absolute confidence in leaving my property needs in their capable hands. I cannot recommend their services highly enough.”
“I have only been with Intire for two months ,but the process has been an excellent experience. All the staff that I have been in contact with have been very professional and courteous. I have found the team from Intire a pleasure to work with and I know they will go the extra mile to resolve any problems and keep me informed on problems or issues with tenants renting my house. I was pleased to meet the tenants that were going to rent my property and found them to be courteous. I hope with your support the smooth running will continue.”
