    Think all letting agents are the same? Think again.

  • paragraph

    A bad letting agent will take a couple of photos of your property; stick them on a website and sit back waiting for the phone to ring. A bad letting agent will only book in viewings when someone specifically asks to be shown around. If a bad letting agent does finally manage to let your property, they will probably be happy to recommend any old tenant simply to earn some commission.

  • paragraph

    In contrast, a great letting agent will take high quality photographs. They will give the time needed to ensure they shoot from the best possible angles, using professional equipment. They'll edit the pictures, making sure your property is at its best. A great letting agent will design and produce a floor plan and a well-written property description. It's all designed to target the ideal tenant for your property. A great letting agent will quickly answer enquires, book viewings and encourage potential tenants to view your property. The great letting agent will keep you fully informed throughout and only recommend the very best tenants for the property.

  • paragraph

    If they manage the property the great letting agent will ensure you are fully legally compliant, receive your rent on time, quickly and cost effectively organise any required maintenance works and give you a secure online account so you can access rent statements and tenancy documents as well as seeing exactly what is going on with your property 24/7.

  • paragraph

    Which agent will minimise any void periods and make the whole process as smooth and stress-free as possible? At AKS Residential we have the experience, the systems and the work ethic to get the job done. Our company goal is to maximise value and minimise hassle to exceed our client's expectations and this is what we work towards every day.

The Lettings Process
  • paragraph

    Finding Your Property
    Before you start to look for a new home to rent you should take some time to work out how much you are prepared to pay, your preferred moving timescale and the locations that would be suitable for you. When registering with us it is helpful if you can provide as much information as possible about the sort of property you are looking for and the areas that you would like to live in. This will help us to ensure that we don't waste your time by showing you unsuitable properties, and will be able to let you know immediately when a suitable property comes onto the market with us. It is a good idea to provide us with an email address as well as 2 phone numbers so that we are able to notify you about new instructions straight away to try and limit the possibility of you missing out on your perfect property.
  • paragraph

    Securing a Property

    Once you have seen a property that you would like to move into you will need to secure it. In order to do this we will need to confirm the details ie the date you would like to move in, who will be living at the property, rent and type of tenancy.

    It is worth bearing in mind that the rental market is very busy and that if you have found a property that you are interested in it is likely that there will be other people interested in it too. Our advice is to have a careful think and make sure that the property will be right for you but to make your decision quickly so as to avoid the possibility of missing out.

    Once the details have been agreed you will need to pay a holding deposit so that the property can be taken off of the market. This is only refundable if for any reason the landlord changes their mind so you will need to be 100% sure that you wish to proceed with the property before paying this.

  • paragraph

    What Happens Next

    Once the property has been secured all adults that will be moving in are required to complete a reference application form and provide a copy of either a passport or driving license. An independent referencing company will conduct credit checks and take up references from current employers as well as Landlords where applicable. The referencing process takes on average 3-5 days but this is dependent on how long it takes the referencing company to receive replies from the various parties, for this reason it is recommended that you let your employers and landlord know that they will be contacted and confirm that they have your consent for a reference to be provided.

    Once you have satisfactorily passed through our referencing process we will contact you to confirm a move in date and agree a time for you to visit the office to sign the legal paperwork and pay the move in monies.

  • paragraph

    Moving In
    In addition to signing the tenancy agreement and paying the outstanding balance of move in monies you will also need to sign a copy of the Inventory and set up a standing order for subsequent rent payments before the keys are released. If your property will be managed by your landlord then at this stage you will be provided with their contact details for future reference. Now all you have left to do is move yourself into the property and settle into your new home!

      Our Marketing

      The most important question to ask an estate agent is "What is your marketing strategy for my property? Excellent marketing will increase interest in your property, which will in turn lead to a quicker sale and higher price.

      At AKS Residential we focus on producing high calibre details for the properties we promote. In the vast majority of cases buyers now start their search online, so it is vital your property is presented in a way that will attract attention and make it stand out from the crowd. High quality photos, a floor-plan and a well-written property description are essential. Without them your home won't be seen by the right people and won't achieve the high price it deserves.

      To help, we offer an Enhanced Marketing Pack which is designed to promote your home to its full potential. The Pack gets you an upgrade to a premium listing on rightmove and a video tour of your property. We use a full range of pricing strategies and tailor our approach from one property to the next. No two homes are the same and so neither should any two marketing campaigns. It's important to adapt the marketing on, potentially, a day-by-day basis. That's why we continually review and enhance our marketing to ensure your property hits the right note. You will have your own online account so you can see real time feedback on how your property is performing and what we are doing to generate interest for you. You'll like it, but if you don't we'll change it straight away.
