7 Easy Steps to Renting your Property, with our 5 star reviewed service! 

1) Free Valuation and Marketing Appraisal

We offer a free market appraisal of your property where we will discuss how to achieve the maximum rent level, attract the best quality tenants, advise you on all of the relevant legislation and also explain the different levels of service that we offer, along with the costs associated with the letting and property management process.

2) Prepare For Market

With many years experience of letting properties, we know what's needed to let your home. First impressions count, so make sure you're doing everything you can to impress potential tenants. If the property is vacant or you live there currently, we will advise how best to present your property to attract as many potential tenants as possible, although in most cases we will be marketing your property before your current tenants leave, in which case we will liaise with them to schedule a date for the photos to be done, giving them time to prepare the property!

3) Launching To Market 

Once you have instructed us, we will discuss who your ideal tenant is to ensure that we only book suitable applicants in to view the property. We appreciate that every property is different, and every landlord has their own criteria which we are more than happy to follow. If you are new to the process we will help you navigate this difficult process.

We advertise your property on the three biggest property portals - Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket as well as our own website. After viewings, we call with feedback the following day, updating you with honest advice and practical next steps if a change of approach is needed.

We offer no additional charge to carry out the viewings on your behalf to save you time and any awkward conversations - after all, you're paying us to filter through the numerous applicants looking for a property to find the best fit. Once we have discussed the prospective tenants with you, we will then look to start the referencing process.

4) Let Agreed! What Happens Next? 

Once a tenant has been found, we then carry out thorough reference checks with a professional referencing agency. This consists of a credit check, ensuring that the applicant does not have a history of unpaid debts such as a county court judgement, IVA or bankruptcy. We then carry out income & affordability referencing to ensure that your tenant has enough income to comfortably pay the rent and isn’t relying on overtime, non-guaranteed bonuses or other forms of income which are subject to change. 

5) Administration

We will prepare an assured shorthold tenancy agreement and send this to you to review and sign before sending a copy to your tenants. This is a detailed document containing numerous clauses to set out the obligations of the tenants, guarantor (if applicable) and yourself as a landlord, if there is anything that you would like to add or draw extra attention to, we have space for this too!

6) Final Steps 

Once all parties have signed the agreement, the tenant will then pay their initial rent and deposit or equivalent deposit guarantee. We will arrange a professional, independent inventory to be done which details the condition of the property along with any furniture, fixtures and fittings which you may have left; this means we have something to look back on when the tenants move out of the property. 

7) Move In!

The tenant will collect the keys and start moving in. If you are opting for our full management service, your dedicated property manager will then take over and handle all aspects of the tenancy from this point. If you have decided to manage the property yourself, we will provide you with the tenants contact details so you can introduce yourself and deal with your tenants directly.
