We will visit your property to advise you on the rental income achievable, and to answer any questions that you may have about renting and ascertain the most suitable service for you.
We will prepare details and advertise your property on the internet, in our town centre office and local paper. We will also erect a “To Let” board if required.
Any additional advertising is at the request and expense of the landlord.
We endeavour to meet all prospective tenants to ascertain their suitability and of course, accompany all viewings of vacant properties at all times.
Having found potentially suitable tenants we will obtain references from all applicable sources. These would include the following:
- Employers Reference

Let & Rent Processing
Let & Rent Processing
We offer landlords all the benefits of the basic letting service together with the convenience of our company collecting the monthly rent of your behalf. We will: Set up a standing order from the tenant’s bank account into our Client bank account, issue regular monthly statement’s showing exactly how much has been credited into your account, transfer the monies due each month by online banking direct into your own bank account, pursue any arrears of rental payments on your behalf if any when necessary, offer to you our Rent Guarantee (subject to satisfactory tenant references)
Our Full Management service offers Landlords all the benefits of the Basic Letting service and Letting/Rent processing service plus offers peace of mind that your property is being looked after on a regular basis by our experienced team. This service is ideal if you prefer us to manage potentially time consuming issues, book our contractors to carry out repairs and general maintenance issues or simply because it is impractical for you to do so.
Should there be any general maintenance required at the property or problems with the property needing urgent attention, we will arrange to obtain estimates and supervise any repairs and ensure that they are dealt with as quickly and professionally as possible. The payment of any accounts in respect of works carried out is subject to the landlord’s account being in credit.
We have recently introduced our 24/7 online maintenance reporting service to ensure that we keep our high standard of customer service. This new service has been introduced to encourage tenants to advise us of all issues in a timely manner with the option of adding photographs to assist with diagnosis of the problem. This goes a long way towards reducing unnecessary call out charges and enables us to instruct the right contractors for the works.
We carry out routine inspection visits of your property by a qualified inventory clerk and advise you accordingly of our findings in report. These inspections are purely to check on the general condition of the property and to ensure that the tenancy is being conducted in a correct and acceptable manner. Obvious defects would be noted but if any further or more detailed inspections are required by us or any other qualified body, these would be by special arrangement and subject to an additional fee.
