Property Viewings & Finding a Tenant

Our experienced property negotiators will always conduct viewings of your property. We will keep you up to date with feedback on viewings and any offers at least once a week. Consequently, we often achieve lets within a few days. However, if after two weeks we have not found a suitable Tenant, we will reappraise our marketing plan with you. We are very conscious that time is of the essence when looking to find tenants. Therefore, we will do everything we possibly can to secure a let on a property as quickly and efficiency as possible.

The Process Once We Find a Tenant

Once a suitable Tenant has been found for your property, the Tenant will pay a contribution towards the deposit. We will then commence referencing.

The referencing is very thorough and would usually include identity checks, references and proof of address history. If the perspective Tenant is under the age of 25, we would also need a guarantor. Furthermore, the landlord may also want to consider a legal expense cover insurance policy.

Documentation

After referencing, the next step is to set up the Tenancy Agreements. Addionally, we will arrange for any Inventories, Gas Safety Certificates or Energy Performance Certificates to be conducted on your behalf.  The Tenant then signs an assured short hold Tenancy Agreement which will contain all the usual conditions of the let. However, should you have any additional requirements or variance to that agreement please let us know as soon as possible.  Normally, the Tenant will sign the Tenancy Agreements on the day they move in. Copies will be forwarded to the Landlord shortly after, unless otherwise requested. We will also register the Tenant’s deposit in a suitable deposit scheme.

Safety Regulations

We will help you understand compliance with fire and furnishings regulations. And we can arrange safety checks on your property for gas and electrical appliances.

The Tenancy Deposit Scheme

All Landlords are legally obliged to protect the deposit levied by the Tenant within 30 days. We can deal with this on behalf of the Landlord and issue the necessary certification to the Tenant.

Tax on Rental Income

If you are based overseas, HMRC will require us to withhold tax payable on your rental income. You will need to keep detailed records of income and expenses to submit with your tax return. However, it is possible to enrol with the Inland Revenue’s “Non Resident Landlord Scheme” which entitles you to receive the rent without any tax deductions. For more information, please visit the HMRC website or ask one of our staff members.

Our aim is to offer a competitively priced service to Landlords. This is backed by our experience, expertise and professional standing.
