Landlord Process

1 Landlord Process

Whether the property that you are considering letting is your former home or an investment, it needs to be looked after. Being a landlord is not for everyone so in the first instance give us a call and we will go through the pitfalls and benefits of being a landlord

2 Letting Valuation

We will visit you at the property and using our extensive knowledge of both the local market and current legislation we will guide you through the correct pricing and any work that needs to be carried out to ensure it is ready to let. We will also guide you through the process of deposit registration and other legislative requirements.

3 On Instruction

Once you have instructed us to market your property we will immediately arrange an energy performance certificate and prepare the details for online advertising and quality paper details.

We will keep you informed of the feedback from viewings and levels of online interest.

4 Let agreed

Once we agree a prospective tenant for your property we will carry out our thorough referencing process to ensure we do as much as possible to get a tenant will look after your property as you would.

6 Manage or Non managed The choice is yours

We would recommend our managed service simply because of the peace of mind that we strive to deliver.

Tenants these days prefer a managed service so that they have a close point of contact for any problems.

Landlords generally will prefer a letting agent to take care of the ongoing legal requirements of a landlord and the knowledge that we are on hand to use our bank of competitively priced local contractors to deal with any ongoing issues.
