    Our Marketing


    Rightmove, Zoopla AND Primelocation. We bombard the best potential tenants in Derby with all the information they need to find your property. Using all three of the most popular property websites means we leave nothing to chance. We won't rest there though. A property always receives the most interest when it is first advertised. That's why we pay extra to market your home as a 'Featured Property'. It means it will appear at the top of a Rightmove search. We'll also make it a 'Premium Listing'. That creates a larger highlighted advert and leads to 26% more people taking a look.

    Having your property advert seen by as many tenants as possible is exactly what you need, but the advert itself must show the property in its best light. We'll take high quality photos using professional equipment and create a floor-plan to really show it off.

    Marketing your property is all about the little details. But without those details you could be left scratching your head and asking... what's going wrong?

    Finding the Right Tenant


    Never underestimate the importance of finding the right person to live in your home. We go the extra mile to match up the right people with the right property. If we didn't it would end badly for them and for you. At AKS Residential we take a long term view. We recommend people because we believe they'll be suitable for your home today and in the future. We strive to build lasting relationships. Experience teaches us a lot, but we don't rely on it. We also use a specialist referencing company to carefully check financial backgrounds and suitability.

    Our commitment is this: We will never recommend someone for your property that we would not be happy having move into our own.

    Looking After Your Property


    Life's busy. Too busy. So don't worry about the tiresome task of looking after your home. We'll do that for you.

    We offer a full property management service. If something needs fixing, we'll fix it. If the law changes, we'll tell you and the days of chasing rent are gone. We'll ensure standing orders are set up and paid on time. We've invested in new technology so tenants have their own app. It allows them to report repairs 24/7 and our network of trusted contractors will get the job done before you can say "leaky tap". But it's not good enough to wait for maintenance issues to be flagged up. That's why we also visit your property to make sure it's being looked after. Following each inspection we compile a detailed report for you; complete with pictures. All you have to do is visit your online account and take a look.

    So put your feet up. AKS Residential has it covered.

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

      Rightmove, Zoopla AND Primelocation. Using all three of the most popular property websites means we leave nothing to chance. We make sure your property appears as a 'Featured Property' and a 'Premium listing'. That way it will be seen as a large advert at the top of a Rightmove search.

      You'll also need high quality photos, a floor-plan, a video tour and a well-written description. We take care of the lot.

      We tailor our approach according to the property. It's important to adapt the marketing on a day-by-day basis. That's why we continually review our strategy. But don't take our word for it. Track the sale yourself. That's why we give you 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 how we do things, but if you don't we'll change it straight away.

      Working For You

      The first offer on a property is often not the right offer. That's why careful negotiation is crucial. But if, like us, you love your home, you might not be the right person to do it. That's where we come in. We're independent, have decades worth of experience and, as a family run business, the service we provide needs to be right, every time.

      Independence is crucial. It enables us to keep a cool head and only do what's right for the sale. We don't panic or flap. We work on the facts and deliver a professional service with no exceptions.

      The experience we have matters too. We spot problems a mile off, do our homework and make sure the buyer has the funds needed to complete the sale.

      At AKS Residential any offers we receive on your property will only ever be handled by a senior member of the team. This experience is crucial; without it we couldn't consistently get the best price for your property.

      Managing Your Move

      Finding someone to buy your home is an exciting moment, but it should be a cautious time too. One in every three sales falls through. The chances of it happening to you can be reduced as we manage your move.

      We will do all the legwork behind the scenes to make sure everything that should be done, is done. We will talk with the other estate agents in the chain, keep lines of communication open with solicitors and mortgage brokers and liaise with buyers and sellers throughout.

      We aim to predict and iron out any hiccups before they arise. With years of experience we know who to be talking to, when, and what to be asking. Moving home should be an exciting time, but this can easily become stressful if there are long delays or worse. But don't worry, we will look out for you and get you on the move.
