    Fees

    We believe in building and maintaining relationships with all our clients and because of this we announced in 2015 that all fees from Landlords will be deducted on a monthly basis meaning no upfront costs*.

Letting a property
  • paragraph

    Step by Step Guide
  • paragraph

    Before you start your search

    Make sure you are financially prepared for the rent and for the fees.

    Once the landlord decides you will be a good tenant, you will need to pay fees to set up the tenancy to cover the cost of references, credit checks and arranging your rental.

    Before you move in you will also pay a security deposit and probably one month's rent in advance.

    These initial checks establish that you can afford the rent and therefore will make a good tenant.

  • paragraph

    Arrange Viewings

    The only way to really get a feel for the kind of property you might rent is to arrange some viewings.

    Go through your list of favourite properties arrange viewings via our website, or ask the branch handling the property.

    Take your list of criteria with you on the viewings to make sure the property is a good match. It is also a good idea to make a list of questions to ask - here are some important ones:

    • How much is the rent per calendar month?
    • What is included in the rent?
    • What additional bills are there? What is the likely cost? If it's a house-share, how are the bills split and who pays them?
    • How much deposit is needed? Where will my deposit be protected?
    • What fees do I need to pay to set up the tenancy?
    • Are there fees further down the line if I choose to renew the tenancy?
    • How long is the contract?
    • What notice period is needed when I want to leave the property?
    • Who should I contact in the case of an emergency?
    • What insurance does the landlord have to cover the property? What insurance do I need to cover myself?
  • paragraph

    Budget for your tenancy

    You will have a few significant outgoings when you first set up a new tenancy:

    • A tenancy administration fee charged by your letting agent to conduct a credit check, seek references from previous landlords and employers, setting up the tenancy agreement and protecting your deposit.
    • Your first month's rent.
    • Your deposit which will be at least the same amount as one month's rent, and is often more.
    • In addition, you may encounter other initial fees, such as:
      • An additional person fee charged for every other person included in the tenancy.
      • A guarantor fee. You may need a guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) if you cannot provide appropriate references (for example, students who have never rented a property before).
      • An inventory fee
    • Other initial outgoings might include the purchase of furniture if you rent an unfurnished or part furnished property

    Once you have moved in, you will have ongoing costs:

    • Your monthly rental payments.
    • Your council tax payments.
    • Your utilities including gas, electricity and water.
    • Phone bills, broadband and line rental.

    Make sure you take all of these costs into account when you're thinking of renting a property.

  • paragraph

    The Application Process

    Once your offer has been accepted and you have paid your offer deposit you will receive an email from an independent referencing company called Homelet where you are required to complete the application form an submit to enable Homelet to carry out the required checks.

  • paragraph

    Your Tenancy Agreement

    Read your written tenancy agreement carefully to understand your rights and responsibilities.

    • If you have any concerns about the agreement, seek advice before you sign.
    • Agree an inventory (or check-in report) with your landlord and, as an extra safeguard, make sure that you take photos. This will make things easier if there is a dispute about the deposit at the end of the tenancy.
      • If you are happy with the inventory, sign it and keep a copy.

    Remember to take meter readings when you move in.

    • This will help make sure you don't pay for the previous tenant's bills.
    • Make sure that you have the correct contact details for the landlord or agent and you keep them handy. These should be given to you.

  • paragraph

    Documents your Landlord or Agent MUST provide

    There are a number of documents that your Landlord or Agent must provide you with at the start of your tenancy, by law. Use the below list as a checklist, and make sure you do receive a copy of each.

    • A copy of the guide 'How to rent'.
      • This guide is only applicable to tenants in England.
    • A gas safety certificate.
      • The landlord must provide one each year, if there is a gas installation.
    • Deposit paperwork.
      • If you have provided a deposit, the landlord must protect it in a government approved scheme. Make sure you get the official information from the scheme, and that you understand how to get your money back at the end of the tenancy. Keep this information safe as you will need it later.
    • The Energy Performance Certificate.
      • This will affect your energy bills and the landlord must provide one (except for Houses in Multiple Occupation). If your landlord doesn't provide these, they can't evict you until they do.
    • A record of any electrical inspections.
      • All appliances must be safe and checks every 5 years are recommended.
  • paragraph

    Tenants Responsibilities

    Look after the property. Keep it clean, and take care of any furniture and appliances. Don't attempt any repairs or decorating without first contacting your Landlord or Agent to seek permission and guidance. If you notice any issues contact your Landlord/Agent to arrange repair. Not reporting minor issues that turn into major problems can be a risk to your deposit.

    Get familiar with how the boiler and major appliances work. Find out where the stop cock, fuse box and any meters are located. Much better to know now, than wait for an emergency to try and find them. Ask your Landlord or Agent if you need to.

    Pay the rent on the agreed date.

    Last but not least be considerate to the neighbours. Anti-social behaviour could get you evicted, so just be considerate of the neighbours.

  • paragraph

    Landlords Responsibilities

    Your Landlord/Agent has responsibilities to you as a paying tenant:

    Maintain the structure and exterior of the property.

    Insure the building to cover any damage from flood or fire.

    Install smoke alarms on each floor.

    Fit carbon monoxide alarms in rooms using solid fuels (coal or wood for example)

    Deal with problems related to water, electricity and gas supply.

    Maintain appliances and furniture they have supplied.

    Carry out most repairs. If something is not working, report it to the landlord (or their agent) as soon as you can.

    Arrange an annual gas safety check by a Gas Safe engineer (where there are any gas appliances).

    Give a minimum of 24 hours notice of visits for repairs or maintenance.

    Get a licence for the property, if it is a licensable property. This applies to properties where you rent a room in a shared house known as HMOs.

  • paragraph

    Extending your Tenancy

    Should you wish to extend your tenancy after any initial fixed period, there are a number of important issues to consider.

    • Do you want to sign up to a new fixed term? There will likely be costs for this, check with your Landlord or Agent.
    • It is sometimes possible to be on a 'rolling periodic tenancy'. This means you carry on as before but with no fixed term - you can leave at any time by giving one month's notice. Or your landlord can end the contract at two months' notice.
    • Your landlord might want to increase your rent. Your landlord can increase your rent by agreement, or as set out in your tenancy agreement, or by following a procedure set out in law.
  • paragraph

    Ending your Tenancy

    If you or the landlord want to end the tenancy There are things that both landlords and tenants must do at the end of the tenancy:

    Giving Notice

    It is a legal requirement for landlords to give you proper notice if they want you to leave. Normally, the landlord must allow any fixed period of the tenancy to have expired, and they must have given at least two months' notice. Your tenancy agreement should say how much notice you must give the landlord if you want to leave the property - one month's notice is typical.

    Return of deposit

    Try to be present when the property is inspected to check whether any of the tenancy deposit should be deducted to cover damage or cleaning costs (a 'check-out inventory').

    If you do not agree with proposed deductions contact the relevant deposit protection scheme.

    Outstanding Rent

    Make sure that your rent payments are up to date. Do not keep back rent because you think that it will be taken out of the deposit.

    Outstanding Bills

    Do not leave bills unpaid. This might have an impact on your references and credit rating.

    Clean Up

    Remove all your possessions, clean the house, take meter readings, return all the keys and give a forwarding address.

    The landlord is entitled to dispose of possessions left in the property after, typically, 14 days.

  • paragraph

    Moving Out

    Cleaning costs and unpaid rent are the top reasons why deposit money is withheld when a tenant moves out of a rented property.

    So before you move out, make sure you have paid any remaining rent that is due. Keep in mind that if you are paying by check it will take a few days for the payment to clear, so pay in plenty of time so that by move out day all monies have cleared and no rent is owed.

    Give the property a thorough clean before you leave so it is in 'move in' condition for the next tenant.

    If you have rented a property that is full or part furnished, inspect the furniture and check for any damage.

    If you have caused any accidental damage then do get it repaired professionally.

    Tony Bunce - Partner
    Tony has been an estate agent for 17 years and during that time he's experienced pretty much everything the industry has to offer. That wealth of experience and knowledge has seen Tony rise up the estate agency ladder and he recently celebrated eight years of leading our Kensal Rise office. For Tony it was a homecoming as he was born and raised in Queens Park and still lives locally with his wife and six (that's not a typo!) children who are aged between 3-14 years-old. He said: "I've seen the way the area has developed over the years. It's become one of the most desirable places to live in north west London and unusually for a lot of areas that have experienced big changes there's still a sense of community spirit here." Tony's favourite part of his job is meeting people. He said: "Sitting down and having a chat with a home owner during a valuation is always interesting. You get to meet people from all walks of life. " In the morning you could be discussing the sale of a buy to let with a Harley Street doctor and in the afternoon having a cup of tea and a chat with a couple who have lived here since the 1950s. "The one common factor that unites everyone when it comes to selling property is they value the importance of good, regular communication from an agent. We give regular feedback and I'd like to think I'm approachable enough that my clients feel they can ask me or suggest anything to me." When he's not overseeing the office's high standards of customer care Tony enjoys spending time with his family and experiencing the highs and lows of being a Queens Park Rangers FC fan. Fittingly for a local lad his proudest achievement at Daniels has been being involved since the very beginning in the campaign to stop Kensal Rise Library being closed. "As a kid I went there a lot and for me, especially as a Dad, it's vital that the community still has a library to help educate, nurture and inspire people."

    Mat Plocharski - Lettings Manager
    A lot of estate agents like to talk, some maybe too much, Mat on the other hand prefers to listen. With 8 years of industry experience under his belt and a hard working, dedicated approach to looking after clients Mat knows his job inside out. He said: "It's really important to listen to clients. Whether it's the property owner or someone seeking a new home I prefer to hear what they have to say before second guessing or making assumptions. A good estate agent has to have excellent communication skills. "By listening to people I get to understand their aims and objectives and this is a huge help in keeping everyone happy and achieving the best outcomes." Laid back Mat also advises clients to try not to get stressed during the sales / letting process. He said: "I have a calm approach and think this helps clients stay relaxed. Buying or letting a property can be stressful that's why it's important for clients to feel the estate agent they have chosen is listening to them, acting on their behalf and is experienced enough to handle any challenges. Having lived locally most of his life Mat, like all of the Kensal Rise team, knows the area extremely well. His favourite spot to relax is the cafe in Roundwood Park where he's spent many a Sunday relaxing with his partner. Mat's proudest moment while with Daniels was running a 10k sponsored race in aid of The Mayhew Animal Home charity. So if you are looking for an agent who's a good listener, loves animals and keep calm while others are losing their heads - Mat's your man.

We always work closely with you, and simply 'don't do' the impersonal, casual or inexperienced service that can sometimes leave a bad taste.

    The Buying Process 
    • paragraph

      Step by Step Guide
      1. Speak to an independent mortgage advisor to obtain an agreement in principle to confirm your budget

      2. Register with one of our friendly staff at Daniels Estate Agents to start your search.

      4. Once accepted advise your mortgage advisor and pay for the survey.

      5. Instruct a solicitor, remember the cheapest solicitor is not in our opinion the one to use. Our advice is to use a solicitor that knows the area and has a proven track record or testimonials for dealing with estate agents and providing regular feedback.

      6. Pay your solicitor monies on account for the local land searches.

      7. The seller's solicitor is responsible for drawing up the initial legal contract to transfer ownership.

           Which fixtures and fittings are included

          Any legal restrictions or rights, like public footpaths about using the property

          Any planning restrictions, Services to the property, like drainage and gas

      1. Once the buyers solicitor has received the contracts from the seller's solicitor they will raise enquiries.
      2. The seller's solicitor will then answer those enquiries and return to the buyers solicitor (with the seller's help).
      1. Once these enquiries, local searches and mortgage offer have been received the buyers solicitor will ask the buyer to pay the initial deposit monies and sign the approved contract as will the sellers solicitor ask the seller to sign their part of the contract in order to move to exchanging on contracts.

      2. At this point the buyer and seller will agree a moving date.

      3. The exchange of contracts between all parties is legally binding once this happens. Usually neither party can pull out without paying compensation.

      Tony's Top tip: Beware of agents who over value. An incorrectly priced property can stick on the market and end up costing you time, a lot of money and a considerable amount of hassle. We always show comparable evidence of similar properties we have sold in the area to support our valuations.

      Leigh Givnan
      Leigh's has been with Daniels for three years now. Having studied Sports Science Leigh decided to swap the gym from an office and here explains why. He said: "I've always been interested in property so when the opportunity came up to join Daniels I jumped at it. I love the job and the fact that every day is different and you're dealing with lots of people. "For me the best part of my job is helping people find their ideal home, especially when you've got to know them through meeting them and accompanying them to viewings. There are also challenges such as overseeing sales negotiations but I always aim for a win win scenario as this helps deals get done more smoothly." Leigh grew up locally and attended school in nearby Hampstead so he knows the area extremely well. His biggest achievement so far at Daniels was negotiating the sale of the Kensal Rise office's highest priced property ever. Away from the office Leigh 'relaxes' by watching his team Liverpool FC. Leigh describes his approach to his role as positive, direct and above all honest. He added: "Estate agents have a negative stereotype which is unfair in my opinion. You can't tar every agent with that brush and at Daniels we're honest people simply trying to do our best for everyone we work with." 

      Leigh's Top Tip: People want space in a new home so look to declutter as much as possible. That never used armchair has to go.

      Mat Plocharski
      A lot of estate agents like to talk, some maybe too much, Mat on the other hand prefers to listen. With 8 years of industry experience under his belt and a hard working, dedicated approach to looking after clients Mat knows his job inside out. He said: "It's really important to listen to clients. Whether it's the property owner or someone seeking a new home I prefer to hear what they have to say before second guessing or making assumptions. A good estate agent has to have excellent communication skills. "By listening to people I get to understand their aims and objectives and this is a huge help in keeping everyone happy and achieving the best outcomes." Laid back Mat also advises clients to try not to get stressed during the sales / letting process. He said: "I have a calm approach and think this helps clients stay relaxed. Buying or letting a property can be stressful that's why it's important for clients to feel the estate agent they have chosen is listening to them, acting on their behalf and is experienced enough to handle any challenges. Having lived locally most of his life Mat, like all of the Kensal Rise team, knows the area extremely well. His favourite spot to relax is the cafe in Roundwood Park where he's spent many a Sunday relaxing with his partner. Mat's proudest moment while with Daniels was running a 10k sponsored race in aid of The Mayhew Animal Home charity. So if you are looking for an agent who's a good listener, loves animals and keep calm while others are losing their heads - Mat's your man. 

      Mat's Property Tip: Seek your estate agent's advice about any refurbishment work on a property you've decided to put on the market. Sometimes it can be a waste of money as new homeowners often want to put their own personal stamp on a property.

      Jack Dawson
      Jacks' the newest member of the Daniels' team in Kensal Rise and brings lots of energy and enthusiasm to his role. He started with us in January and has impressed since joining. As a local lad (he lives two minutes walk from the office) he knows the area very, very well having lived here for five years. Already he's got the buzz which all agents get when a deal completes. He said: "This is the first time I've worked in an estate agency and I'm loving it. "There's a lot more to the job than meets the eye and I think a lot of people underestimate how much hard work goes into doing a great job for clients. "My favourite part of my work is receiving a call from a solicitor telling me contracts have been exchanged. It's great to then inform the happy sellers and buyers. It's a real adrenalin rush and makes all the hard work worthwhile." Branch Manager Tony Bunce added: "Jack's very enthusiastic and because he's working with some very experienced estate agents in our branch he'll no doubt pick up the good habits that create very good agents. We think he'll have a great future in the industry." 

      Jack's Top Tip: Always use an agent with a good, solid track record locally. Just like Daniels.

        knowledgeable estate agent
        "My 77 year old mother sold her property through Daniels Estate Agents in Kensal Rise, she had lived there for 40 years and the move was very stressful. Estate Agents always seem to have a bad name but i must say the Manager there Tony held her hand throughout the whole process and really looked after her. She got a great price for her house and he always kept her informed of any views and what people thought. She has now moved into her new flat by the sea and loves every minute. If you want a knowledgeable estate agent who really looks after you then please use Tony at Daniels Kensal Rise." Steve Mathews - Burrows Road NW10

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        the progression team were very efficient
        I wanted to send you a quick note to you and the team, to thank you all very much for helping us buy our dream home. You have been extremely supportive, informative and professional since the beginning of our search. At the beginning of our search you were the only agency in the area to take the time to explain the different areas in and around Kensal Rise, the roads and the properties, you think we should consider for our budget. Your knowledge of the local area was very apparent. Buying a house is a stressful experience even if you are experienced at doing so! We saw numerous properties and you always took the time at the viewing to give us a chance to look round for as long as we needed as well as answering our questions. Once our offer was accepted, the progression team were very efficient and it certainly helped the sale to go through quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend buying or even selling through Daniel's from our experience. Thank you again and I wish you all luck for the future. Mr and Mrs Miller, Queens Park W10

        the most helpful agent we dealt with
        "Tony Bunce was the most helpful agent we dealt with throughout our buying process. We found him amazingly helpful because not only was he available to answer our queries during work hours, but also outside the work hours. He basically went out of his way to help speed the process by always being available over the phone and e-mail. He is a true professional with a personal touch. We highly recommend the services of Tony and his company to all potential buyers. Finally we are very pleased and thankful that we bought our first home through Daniels" Mr and Mrs Garcia- Buyer Review
