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.
