Lettings & Property Management

We aim to provide a comprehensive lettings and management service and have done so for over 20 years.

Lettings have done very well over recent years, with the increase in the amount of deposit required for purchase, many people are now having to rent for much longer and tenants staying for 3 or 4 years is not unusual. In addition there is a much wider range of tenants in terms of age and occupation – we have wide experience in dealing with this and the many other issues that arise from letting can advise the Landlord to the best of our ability.

Our lettings service includes:
  • Advising on market rental and how best to present properties for letting
  • Finding a suitable tenant via boards, Internet sites & local press
  • Assessing tenant suitability & taking references
  • Preparing a tenancy & liasing with the Landlord, including arrangement of gas safety certificates, and Energy Performance Certificates
  • Preparing an inventory, taking photographs, reading meters, arranging tenancy signing
  • Taking a security deposit, registering it with Tenancy Deposit Scheme
  • Collecting first month’s rent, arranging tenancy signing, utility handover and key handover
  • Inspections initially and thereafter every season & an out of hours service
  • Monthly Statements to Landlords
  • Arrangement of essential maintenance & repair – liasing with contractors
  • Rent reviews & renewal of Tenancies.
No fees are charged to the prospective tenant but a holding amount towards the due first month’s rent is payable up front and is equal to one weeks’ rent.
