    SELL from £600 - LET from only £300

    LOCAL expertise - LOW internet fees.....

    ......Now you can have the best of both worlds!

    Are you looking for the local knowledge and expertise of a traditional high street estate agent but without the extortionate and inconsistent fees? With the majority of buyers and tenants finding properties via the internet why pay the high street fees when you can have the same, if not better level of service at a fraction of the cost?

    So what options are available?

    Although often reasonably priced, many internet agents lack the local knowledge and personal estate agency service that you are looking for. Traditional high street agents offer a local service but often have higher or inconsistent fees with varying levels of value for money.

    So what if there was another option? One that gave you the best of both worlds? Well now there is!

    FOREFRONT....No compromise required!

    Here at Forefront we have developed our LOCAL Estate Agency business to perfectly blend people, knowledge and technology to provide a level of service that rivals traditional high street agents without the nasty financial sting.

    Keeping our fees competitive in comparison to online only estate agents and offering outstanding value for money has been at the Forefront of our business model and continuously provides outstanding results for our Vendors, Landlords and Tenants.

    Forefront offers flexibility to both our Landlords and Vendors with a choice of four levels of service. The option you choose will depend on how hands-on you choose to be! Plus with our completely transparent fees that INCLUDE VAT, you can be assured that there are no hidden extras.

    Our fully responsive website automatically optimises the visitors viewing experience on all smartphones, tablets, laptops and PC's. Staying at the Forefront of technology ensures our customer's properties receive maximum exposure and our buyers and tenants have a user friendly experience.

    With over 20 years' experience in the Swindon property market, Forefront offer affordable solutions that will save you money, whilst providing the security of a personal, local service unavailable through national online agents. There really is no need to compromise when you can have the best of both!

    We're confident that you won't find a better quality of service at such competitive prices so why not get in touch with us today and book us to market your property.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    image cannot be displayed

    Please find below some of the most common questions what we are asked by Landlords prior to putting their property on the market.

    If there is something we've missed or you have further questions, please feel free to get in touch with our friendly and approachable team.

    What is the difference between letting your property through Forefront and a traditional High Street Estate Agent/Letting Agent?

    The only difference is that we don't have expensive high street offices and as such can offer value for money compared to traditional high street Agents who come with a hefty price tag!

    Plus with our multi-levels of service, you only need to pay for the service you need as one option doesn't always fit all.

    Internet estate agents charge the same amount as you but cover the whole country! How do you keep your fees so low and remain local?

    In many ways we are set up like an internet Estate Agent and as such our fees reflect this. We don't have expensive high street offices but have remained local by simply coming off the high street. Unlike internet agents who then target the whole country we concentrate on the local market. We have utilised technology to offer a fast and effective service with minimal overheads which we reflect in our low fee structure. In effect we have positioned ourselves in between the traditional expensive high street Estate Agent and the Internet Agent giving our customers the best of both worlds.

    Which areas do you cover?

    As well as covering the whole of Swindon and surrounding villages, we also cover a 10 to 15 mile radius taking in other Wiltshire and Gloucestershire towns and villages.

    How effective are you at letting houses online?

    Over the years we have been trading we have let and managed over 200 properties! Our extensive and targeted marketing continuously provides outstanding and proven results. We advertise on all of the major property portals, as well as on our own user friendly responsive website.

    Your first option requires an upfront fee, what's your incentive to let my property once you've got my money and what happens if I change my mind?

    Our reputation depends on your satisfaction and great results. We wouldn't still be in business today if we didn't actually let any houses! We're only as good as our last success and we hope you would want to come back to us in the future and recommend us to your friends and family.

    With regards to changing your mind - As your property has already been advertised and we have incurred costs, we cannot refunded the upfront fee.

    Will you value my property for me?

    Yes, we will bring comparable properties that have recently let in your area so we can firm up an asking price. Our experienced valuers will provide you with an accurate and realistic market value.

    Will you put my property onto the market on the same day?

    Yes. Because we are transparent with our fees you can choose the option you want to take and we will do all the work to market your property on the same day. Plus the technology we use means we can have properties on the market very quickly.

    I don't know which service to choose. Which is the most popular?

    Our Fully Managed Service is the most popular as this ensures Landlords are on top of all their legal obligations and their tenancies are run smoothly with minimal time investment required by the Landlord.

    If you can't decide, you can always choose our "Tenant Find Service" and increase the level of service we provide at any time.

    Do you vet potential viewers?

    When you instruct Forefront as your Letting Agent, we ask you a series of questions regarding who you will and won't accept. We will make sure potential viewers meet this criteria.

    How long does it take for my property to be online and how long do you market it for?

    Your property can be advertised almost immediately, once you've instructed us. Our expert team can create floorplans and take professional images quickly and efficiently and upload them straight to our website and portals like Rightmove and Zoopla in next to no time. We then market the property until we have found a Tenant.

    What's the first step if I decide to sell my property through Forefront and how quickly can you visit?

    The first step is to get in touch with us by either calling or filling in our contact form. We will then arrange to visit you and your property at a time to suit you and take all the details needed to market your property. As we're your local Agent, we can often come out to see you the same day, should you require.

    Advice for Landlords
    image cannot be displayed

    Getting Started

    Our knowledge of the local rental market, coupled with a tailored approach to advertising, will help you set an achievable rent and find the right Tenant.

    We can give you advice on preparing your property to go onto the market as well as anything else to do with being a Landlord. We are happy to chat with you over the phone as every property and scenario if different.

    We don't ask for anything for this service as we are happy to help even if you aren't currently signed with Forefront. All we ask for in return is that you recommend or consider swapping to Forefront in the future.

    We have also listed the main points to consider when looking to rent your property.

    Property Appraisal and Valuation

    We offer an independent assessment of your property by one of our trained and experienced team. This is free of charge and with absolutely no obligation.

    On visiting the property, Forefront also provide informed advice on any work required to meet regulatory requirements, as well as other actions you may need to take before you let your property, including necessary repairs and refurbishments.

    It is important that you set a rent that is competitively priced, fair and achievable. Using our extensive knowledge of the local rental market, we will assess how much your property could achieve in the current climate. Our rental valuation will take into consideration the location, size, standard and condition of the property and whether it will be let furnished, part furnished or unfurnished.

    Effective Advertising and Marketing

    At Forefront we use the very latest technology and proven marketing techniques to advertise our rental properties.

    We use all the major property websites including Rightmove and Zoopla. Our own website is 'responsive' which means it automatically optimises visitors viewing experience property listing on all smartphones, tablets and PC's. This gives your rental property the highest possible online exposure, whichever device your potential Tenant uses.

    High quality photographs and floor plans are fundamental in order to present your property in the best possible way. We take the time to capture the best picture of each room and show off its best features, ensuring every picture looks professional. Our floor plans are included within our fee as we feel they are an essential tool to help attract the high quality Tenants.

    Our online marketing activity includes social media through our Facebook pages and twitter account and we also advertise via local magazines, radio and 'To Let' boards.

    We tailor our marketing approach to the type of Tenant you are looking for, to attract genuine interest. Once instructed one of the first things we do is to match a property with a list of waiting Tenants and send them your property details by email.

    Securing The Most Suitable Tenant

    As a Landlord, you need peace of mind that the right Tenants will be living in your property. All potential Tenants on our rental database are pre-qualified by us before viewings, to ensure they are suitable.

    All property viewings are accompanied and conducted when needed by a fully trained member of our team and we provide prompt and honest feedback. We will keep you up-to-date on progress and will let you know as soon as someone applies for your property.

    We conduct Tenant referencing, Immigration and credit checks on your behalf using a specialist Referencing Agency. This vetting service process is a critical step to securing a reliable Tenant for you.

    Preparing Your Property To Let - The Legal Essentials

    Our experienced Lettings team will provide the latest information and guidance to ensure you meet all your legal obligations as a Landlord.

    Energy Performance Certificate

    All properties for rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before any marketing or viewings can take place. An EPC rates energy efficiency and its environmental impact and is valid for 10 years for rental properties. A copy of the EPC must be made available to tenants before entering into a tenancy agreement. If you want do not have an EPC for your property, Forefront can arrange an inspection for you.

    Gas safety

    Under the Gas Safety (installation and use) Regulations 1998, Landlords have a legal obligation to make sure all gas pipework, appliances, fittings and flues are safe to use and maintained in a safe condition. Every gas appliance and flu must be tested for gas safety every 12 months. A gas safety record must be provided to existing Tenants within 28 days of the annual safety check, or to new Tenants before they move in, and you must keep copies yourself for two years. All installation, maintenance and safety checks must be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer. We can arrange this for you.

    Furniture and Furnishings (fire) (Safety) (Amendments) Regulations 2010

    Upholstered furniture and soft furnishings supplied in a rented property must comply with current regulations. This includes, but is not limited to, bed frames, mattresses, headboards, sofa beds, pillows, cushions, seat pads and any garden furniture that may be used indoors. Items which comply will have suitable permanent label attached. All non-compliant items must be removed before a Tenant moves in. Bedding, carpets, curtains and any furniture made before 1950 are exempt.

    Electrical Safety

    Landlords are required to ensure that the electrical installation in a rented property is safe when Tenants move in and maintained in safe condition. Although not a legal requirement, it is strongly recommended that you have the property inspected and tested by a registered electrician every 5 years and arrange Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Test) once a year to ensure electrical appliances are safe and fit for purpose.

    Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

    Since October 2015 new regulations require Landlords to install smoke alarms on every floor of their rental property and test them at the start of every Tenancy and to install carbon monoxide alarms in high risk rooms such as those where a solid fuel heating system or boiler is installed.

    Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHRS)

    If your property is rented out, your local council may decide to do an HHSRS inspection. Inspectors look at 29 health and safety areas.

    Consent To Let

    If your property is mortgaged, you must obtain written consent to let from your mortgage lender. If it is leasehold, your lease may require written consent from your Landlord before you can sub-let.

    Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO)

    If your property is let to at least three tenants who share toilet, bathroom, or kitchen facilities but are not from one household or family - sometimes called a 'house share' - it is a House in Multiple Occupancy (HMO). Depending on the size of the property, the number of tenants and the area, you are likely to need an HMO licence from your local council plus an HHSRS inspection. We can advise you of this.

    Buildings Insurance

    Landlords are required by law to take out buildings insurance for rental properties. We advise our Landlors to also consider contents insurance and policies to cover rent guarantee and legal expenses.

    Letting Your Property - Moving Your Tenants In

    Our professional letting service ensures everything is in place for a smooth and trouble-free start to renting out your property.

    Tenancy agreement

    This is a legally binding agreement, setting out the rights and obligations of both Landlord and Tenant. Most residential property is let on an Assured Shorthold tenancy (AST) for an initial fixed term of 6 or 12 months. We can advise on all the options available to help you make an informed decision on the areas of responsibility, conditions of tenancy, how and when the rent will be reviewed and notice terms. We will prepare all the paperwork and draw up a comprehensive legal document for signing.

    If we are fully managing your Tenancy and rental property for you, then the Tenancy Agreement will include those activities we will be responsible for on your behalf.

    Inventory/Schedule of Condition

    All inventories produced by Forefront on behalf of Landlords contain a full written description of your property, its contents and schedule of condition inside and out including the walls, flooring and all fixtures, fittings and furnishings provided with photographic evidence. This provides crucial legal reference in case of any discrepancy or claim against the Tenant's deposit at the end of the Tenancy.

    Utilities and Council Tax

    Usually it is the Tenant's responsibility to pay utility bills and council tax. We can organise all meter readings so that the transfer of water rates, gas, electricity, telephone, TV licence and council tax accounts can be transferred to the Tenant. Landlords are responsible for closing off their accounts in-between Tenancies and settling any bills covering this time.

    Deposit Schemes

    A deposit is paid by the Tenant at the start of the Tenancy to safeguard against damage. Since April 2007, all new Assured Shorthold Tenancies must be regulated with a government-backed Tenancy Deposit Protection (TDP) scheme within 30 days of receipt of the deposit. If we are not providing this service for you then you would need to register the deposit with a TDP scheme yourself. Landlords should be aware that there are significant penalties for failing to comply with Deposit Protection requirements.

    We normally collect a deposit from the Tenant which is equal to one month's rent. Forefront is registered with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) which means your Tenant's deposit will be held by the DPS for the duration of the Tenancy. We will register deposits on your behalf and liaise with their dispute service should the need arise at the end of a Tenancy. We will also provide your Tenant with the name and contact details of the DPS and its dispute resolution service which is a legal requirement.

    Keys

    You should provide at least one set of keys for each Tenant. Where Forefront will be managing the property for you, we will also require a full set which will be coded for security purposes.

    Letting Your Property - Day To Day Management

    Where a Landlord has taken Forefront's Full Lettings Management Service we take care of your property, Tenancy arrangements, Tenant and your Landlord duties throughout the Tenancy.

    Collecting rent

    Forefront offers a Rent Collection Service on its own or as part of its Fully Managed Letting Service for busy Landlords. We collect rent monthly unless the Tenancy Agreement specifies otherwise. Occasionally Tenants may experience financial difficulties and our rent collection service includes chasing any late payments. We will notify you at the earliest opportunity of any rent arrears. You can protect against loss of rental income with an insurance policy. We can suggest one if you wish.

    We pay rent to Landlords monthly by BACS (net of our fees and any disbursements, bills and income tax if appropriate) and provide monthly income and expenditure records.

    Rental income and Taxation

    As a Landlord you are responsible for assessing your own tax for rent received. Below is some basic guidance on taxation matters relevant to Landlords; however, we would always recommend you seek independent financial advice from an accountant on tax matters.

    1. Income Tax

    Rental income is liable to tax, although a number of expenditures items can be offset against rental profit. You would also need to pay Class 2 National insurance if the work you do counts as running a property business.

    Our management fees are deductible from your rental profit.

    2. Overseas landlords

    Under the Non-Resident Landlord (NRL) Scheme, your Letting Agent will need to deduct tax from the rental income and pay the tax directly to HM Revenue & Customs. If you choose not to use a Lettings Agent to collect rent, then your Tenant will be legally responsible for collecting and paying the tax to HMRC. Alternatively, Landlords living overseas can apply for approval to receive rental income with no tax deducted. Full details of the NRL Scheme are available from HMRC.

    Inspections, maintenance and repairs

    The practicalities of being a Landlord can be very time-consuming. With our Fully Managed Letting Service Forefront take care of all the day to day management and upkeep of your rental property so you don't need to worry.

    We will carry out regular routine inspections - usually quarterly - at a mutually convenient time agreed with the Tenant. This will involve visual inspections, assessing any wear and tear, and organising maintenance and compliance checks. If we identify any problems we will advise you and, dependant on our agreement with you, we can arrange for repairs and any work to be done on the property and pay for this out of the rent received. We have a network of reliable and trustworthy contractors we can call on to deal with routine repairs or emergencies at very competitive rates.

    Tenancy renewals, reviews and notices

    Forefront will handle all Tenancy renewals, including rental reviews for you. If you decide to increase the rent we will issue the relevant notice informing your Tenants. If you wish to end a Tenancy, we will serve notice to your Tenants in line with all legal process and timing requirements and manage all the end of Tenancy administration.

    End of tenancy checks and deposit returns

    At the end of a Tenancy the Landlord should ensure the property is in a good, clean condition before the Tenant checks out, take back the keys and formally take possession of the property. Assuming there are no issues and all the paperwork is completed, utility companies notified and you have a forwarding address for the Tenant, the Landlord should return the Tenants deposit. This is all included as part of the Fully Managed Letting Service.

    Remarketing

    No Landlord wants a vacant property. If a Tenancy is not renewed, we offer Landlords who take our Fully Managed Letting Service an automatic property appraisal, rental valuation and remarketing service until we find a new Tenant.

    image cannot be displayed

    Honesty and transparency is important to us.

    The fees you see below are the costs you pay, with no hidden extras. They include VAT so you know exactly where you stand.

    On the day you sign the Forefront Tenant Application Form this acts as your commited intent to rent the proepty. We will therefore take the following payments:

    A Holding Deposit of £200

    Immigration and Reference Checks - £240 for the first adult and then £120 for every additional adult.

    These are taken in one transaction as soon as we receive your signed Application Form.

    Once the reference checks have been passed there will be an Administration fee of £180 to process the rest of the application and draw up the Tenancy Agreement.

    A Security Deposit - normally one month's rent - which will be held by the Deposit Protection Service - plus your first month's rent will automatically be taken four working days before the start of the Tenancy.

    There are NO further fees for you to pay - even if you renew/extend your Agreement - Forefront DO NOT charge any additional fees - unlike many of the other local Agents.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    image cannot be displayed

    You must have lots of questions to ask about renting your new home so here are some of the most common questions we're asked.

    If there is something we've not included or you would like further information, please contact our friendly and helpful team as we're always happy to help.

    What is the difference between renting a house through Forefront and a traditional High Street Estate Agent?

    The main difference is that at Forefront our Landlords choose how much or how little they are involved in the rental of their property. Some Landlords will opt to do as much as possible including hosting all the viewings and arranging the Tenancy including all the administration. Other Landlords will ask Forefront to take care of everything from start to finish. Simply ask our team which category the property you are interested falls under.

    From a support point of view Forefront choses to limit the number of properties we rent so we can offer a high level of service to both Tenants and Landlords. This means we respond quickly to maintenance issues and queries. We aim to build approachable friendly relationships rather than try to be the biggest letting agent in Swindon and you becoming just another Tenant.

    Should I find out how much I can spend before I start looking?

    Our reference check company will require you to earn enough to cover the rent. We have provided a calculator (on our main website) which you can use to determine this. If you don't earn enough then you may still be able to rent with a Guarantor. They would also need to be reference checked. Salary figures listed are Gross Income.

    How do I view one of your rental properties?

    As soon as we find you a property that looks like it fits your criteria, contact us straight away - timing is crucial as good properties rent quickly and it would be disappointing to miss out. We will then arrange a viewing as soon as possible.

    How do I start the application process?

    Once you are happy that one of Forefront's property is right for you and you would like to go ahead with the rental process, we will invite you to complete a Tenant Application Form. Once signed we will take money for the Holding Deposit, Immigration and Reference checks and put your details to the Landlord.

    What costs will I incur? Are there any agency fees?

    This information is available on this page by looking at our fees and other payments section.

    Forefront are very competitive and we are transparent with our fees so you know exactly what your financial commitment is before you sign. Once you have moved into a Forefront Property there are no further fees to pay. We do not charge to renew or extend your Agreement unlike other Agents.

    What is the process for completing a reference?

    Forefront will arrange your Immigration Check by asking for a copy of your Passport or other relevant documents. The full Reference Check form will be emailed to you by a company called Rentshield. Simply fill in the information they require and they will do the rest.

    What happens once I pass my reference checks?

    We will email you a proof Tenancy Agreement for you to read. Once approved this will then be sent to you via a company called Echo Sign for you to sign electronically.

    Will there be someone to check me into the property?

    Four days before check in you will need to pay the first month's rent and security deposit. Then either our Inventory Clerk or the Landlord will be in touch to arrange a time to hand over keys and check you into the property.

    Who do I speak to if I have problems with my tenancy?

    You will need to refer any issues directly to your Landlord, unless they have chosen to use Forefront's Fully Managed Lettings Service, in which case you will need to contact us. Details of who to contact will be supplied with your Tenancy Agreement.

    How do I pay my monthly rent?

    This will need to be paid to Forefront via a Standing Order if the Landlord is using our Fully Managed Lettings or Rent Collection Service. Should the Landlord choose another service then you will be given the account details for the Landlord so that you can set up a Standing Order directly to the Landlord.

    Advice for Tenants
    image cannot be displayed

    You may be a seasoned renter or your first experience of renting your own home. Either way we are happy to help and advise you even if you are a Tenant with another Letting Agent!

    Whatever the scenario we are here to help and always at the end of the phone. This service is free and all we ask in return is that you tell your Landlord about us and recommend us to your friends, family and work colleagues.

    Here are some basic pointers:

    Check all the Agency Fees before you sign.

    Check the Landlord is meeting all the legislation - most importantly Gas safety, Co2 Emissions and Smoke Alarms.

    Check the property on your viewing for signs of damp and mould and ensure any signs will be seen to before you move in.

    Raise any maintenance issues or questions you have before you sign.

    READ the tenancy Agreement carefully so you are fully aware of your obligations and the Landlords.

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      A great choice
      Forefront have been my letting agent for several years, and I have always found the staff helpful, friendly and quick to respond to any concerns I may have as a landlord. In the time that we've worked together, I have never had an issue finding good clients for my property. Paul, landlord of 1 Knole Close, Priory Vale
    • Landlord Testimonial

      The process was straight forward
      Having tried another agent to let my property I turned to Tristan at Forefront. After a short appointment I handed over the letting to Tristan and his team. Regular updates and simple practices on Forefront behalf saw the property rented in under a week. Ever since then I have trusted the team at Forefront with the property. Stuart Morgan, landlord of 50 Brunswick Street, Old Town
    • Landlord Testimonial

      They give regular feedback
      After months of trying to sell we thought we would look at renting the house. Less than 72 hours after considering the idea the house was rented. It was so simple and a better service than I get from another agent who rents another property for me. Giles Smith, landlord of 88 Shrivenham Road, Town Centre
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Less than 72 hours the house was rented
      I was not sure where to find a good letting company when I wanted to let my house for the first time. I met with a very professional gentleman from Forefront who knew exactly what I was looking for. They deal with any problems that arise at the property very quickly and effectively. They give regular feedback from interim reports and are easily contactable even out of working hours. I have been with Forefront for two year snow and hope to be with them for a long time to come. Mr Limbu, landlord of 17 Risingham Mead, Westlea
    • Landlord Testimonial

      I trust the team at Forefront with my property
      The setup process was very straightforward and Forefront dealt with my new tenant so I didn't need to worry about anything. Forefront will manage any repairs for you if required but is also happy to let the landlord control this which suits me better. Kavey, landlord of 9 Bradshaw Court, Hayden End
    • Landlord Testimonial

      Good quality long term tenants
      Using Forefront to manage my property has been a great choice. Having used different agents in the past I am relieved to have found Forefront who are friendly, professional and utterly reliable. I couldn't ask for anything more from a property manager. I am kept informed at all times, any necessary work is carried out to a very high standard, and I know I can call upon Forefront at any time. I am completely reassured that my apartment is in safe hands. Kate, landlord of 9 Vistula Crescent, Haydon End

    Forefront, Your LOCAL Internet Agent!

      SELL from £600 - LET from only £300

      LOCAL expertise - LOW internet fees.....

      ......Now you can have the best of both worlds!

      Are you looking for the local knowledge and expertise of a traditional high street estate agent but without the extortionate and inconsistent fees? With the majority of buyers and tenants finding properties via the internet why pay the high street fees when you can have the same, if not better level of service at a fraction of the cost?

      So what options are available?

      Although often reasonably priced, many internet agents lack the local knowledge and personal estate agency service that you are looking for. Traditional high street agents offer a local service but often have higher or inconsistent fees with varying levels of value for money.

      So what if there was another option? One that gave you the best of both worlds? Well now there is!

      FOREFRONT.....No compromise required!

      Here at Forefront we have developed our LOCAL Estate Agency business to perfectly blend people, knowledge and technology to provide a level of service that rivals traditional high street agents without the nasty financial sting.

      Keeping our fees competitive in comparison to online only estate agents and offering outstanding value for money has been at the Forefront of our business model and continuously provides outstanding results for our Vendors, Landlords and Tenants.

      Forefront offers flexibility to both our Landlords and Vendors with a choice of services. The option you choose will depend on how hands-on you choose to be! Plus with our completely transparent fees that INCLUDE VAT, you can be assured that there are no hidden extras.

      Our fully responsive website automatically optimises the visitors viewing experience on all smartphones, tablets, laptops and PC's. Staying at the Forefront of technology ensures our customer's properties receive maximum exposure and our buyers and tenants have a user friendly experience.

      With over 20 years' experience in the Swindon property market, Forefront offer affordable solutions that will save you money, whilst providing the security of a personal, local service unavailable through national online agents. There really is no need to compromise when you can have the best of both!

      We're confident that you won't find a better quality of service at such competitive prices so why not get in touch with us today and book us to market your property.

      Frequently Asked Questions
      image cannot be displayed

      Please find below some of the most common questions we are asked by Vendors prior to putting their property on the market.

      If there is something we've missed or you have further questions, please feel free to get in touch with our friendly and helpful team.

      What is the difference between selling a house through Forefront and a traditional High Street Estate Agent?

      Our unique service options provide Vendors with High Street local expertise but without the hefty charges. Why pay for something you don't need when you can pick exactly the service you want at a fraction of the cost?

      Internet estate agents charge the same amount as you but cover the whole country! How do you keep your fees so low and remain local?

      In many ways we are set up like an internet Estate Agent and as such our fees reflect this. We don't have expensive high street offices but have remained local by simply coming off the high street. Unlike internet agents who then target the whole country we concentrate on the local market. We have utilised technology to offer a fast and effective service with minimal overheads which we reflect in our low fee structure. In effect we have positioned ourselves in between the traditional expensive high street Estate Agent and the Internet Agent giving our customers the best of both worlds.

      Which areas do you cover?

      As well as covering the whole of Swindon and surrounding villages, we also cover a 10 to 15mile radius taking in other Wiltshire and Gloucestershire towns and villages.

      But how effective are you at selling houses online and can I market my property with other Agents?

      Over the years we have been trading, Forefront have exchanged and completed on over 800 properties and counting! Our extensive and targeted marketing continuously provides outstanding and proven results. We advertise on all of the major property portals, as well as on our own user friendly responsive website.

      You are able to market your property with other Agents if you chose to pay your fees upfront, but we think you'll find that our fantastic service negates the need for you to look elsewhere.

      With your upfront fees, what's your incentive to sell my property once you've got my money and what happens if I change my mind?

      Our reputation depends on your satisfaction and achieving great results. We wouldn't still be in business today if we didn't actually sell any houses! We're only as good as our last success and we hope you would want to come back to us in the future and recommend us to your friends and family.

      With regards to changing your mind - As your property has already been advertised and we have incurred costs, we cannot refunded the upfront fee. However, if you come back to us in the future then we honour any upfront payment you have made and you will only have the deficit to pay if the upfront fee has gone up at the point of instrucitng us again.

      Will you value my property for me?

      Yes, we will come and put your property onto the market but will bring comparable properties that have sold in your area so we can firm up an asking price. Our experienced valuers will provide you with an accurate and realistic market value.

      How important is it to choose a good solicitor?

      Choosing the right conveyancing Solicitor will help your sale go through more smoothly and protect your interests. Selling your property may be one of the largest financial transactions you encounter so making sure you use an experienced and trusted Solicitor is very important.

      We can recommend a firm of local Solicitors who we trust implicitly. Most of our Vendors and Buyers instruct them and they have an excellent reputation.

      I don't know which service to choose. Which is the most popular?

      This all depends on how hands on you want to be verses how much involvement you would like Forefront to have. All of the options are popular as they offer a choice to the different vendors who instruct us. However, you are always free to upgrade your service level at any time so many of our customers start with our "Core Service" and then upgrade if they feel they want more support.

      Do you vet potential viewers?

      Yes. We make sure we only send you qualified Buyers who are ready to buy and any chain details have been established.

      How long does it take for my property to be online and how long do you market it for?

      Once you have instructed Forefront your property can be advertised almost immediately. Our expert team can create floorplans and take professional images quickly and efficiently and upload them straight to our website and portals like Rightmove and Zoopla in next to no time. We then market the property until we have found a buyer.

      What's the first step if I decide to sell my property through Forefront and how quickly can you visit?

      The first step is to get in touch with us by either calling or filling in our contact form. We will then arrange to visit you and your property at a time to suit you and take all the details needed to market your property. As we're your local agent, we can often come out to see you the same day, should you require.

      Please find below some of the most common questions and answers that crop up during property purchases.

      If there is something we've missed or you have further questions, please feel free to get in touch with our friendly and approachable team.

      What is the difference between buying a house through Forefront and a traditional High Street Estate Agent?

      As Forefront offers its Vendors a choice of service, who conducts the viewings and manages the sale progression; will depend on which level of service the Vendor has chosen.

      All Forefront buyers are given clear instructions to ensure you have all the information you need to support you through the purchase process, regardless of the sales service the Vendor has chosen.

      Should I find out how much I can spend before I start looking and can you recommend a mortgage advisor?

      Yes, organising your finances beforehand is strongly advisable. We have excellent Mortgage Advisors on board who are completely independent to assist you with all aspects of your finances and DO NOT charge you for their services.

      Once you know how much you can borrow, you will know what price of property you can afford.

      If you have a property to sell then it is important to have this property valued so that you can give this information to your Mortgage Advisor.

      Once you have the figures sorted then the next step is to put your property on the market and ideally have a buyer secured before you begin your search. This will put you in a stronger negotiating position and be able to proceed.

      I know what I can afford so what do I do next?

      Make a list of the things you would like your property to have - size, number of bedrooms, number of reception rooms, type, age, location, garage, garden etc. Rank your requirements so that you know what things you will and will not compromise on. You will find as you start to view properties this list may change but you need a starting point.

      How does the viewings process work?

      Contact Forefront to arrange a viewing. We will take some details from you and let you know who will be conducting the viewing. We then book a mutually convenient time with either the Vendor or Forefront to show you around. Once a viewing has been confirmed by both parties you will receive an email confirming the details of the appointment, date, time and full address.

      How do I make an offer?

      Once you have seen a property that ticks the right boxes, simply contact Forefront to make the initial offer. We'll go through some details with you (if you're in a chain, information regarding your mortgage etc) and put your offer to the owner.

      What happens after my offer has been accepted?

      You will receive a letter detailing that your offer has been accepted from Forefront. Once both parties have instructed Conveyancing Solicitors, a 'Notification of Sale' letter will be sent to you and your Solicitor, as well as to the Vendor's Solicitor - this starts the legal process of purchasing the house.

      Why is it so important to choose the right solicitor?

      A good Conveyancing Solicitor is vital in ensuring the sales process runs smoothly and as quickly as possible. The firm of local solicitors we recommend are excellent. They communicate well and have a wealth of experience. We can arrange for a quote on your behalf - just let us know - most of our Buyers and Vendors instruct them so we are used to working with them.

      Will there be someone I can talk to at the various stages of the buying process?

      This will depend on the level of service the Vendor has chosen. All buyers will be issued with instructions, regardless of the service the Vendor has chosen and we will notify you of this when you call to make an offer. If the Vendor has chosen our Sales Progression Service then we will be on hand to support you, right up until the day of Completion. In all other instances your Solicitor and the Vendor will be the main points of contact along with the instructions we provided.

      What happens prior to exchanging contracts?

      Just prior to exchanging contracts you will be asked to sign contract papers and give a date when you want to complete (actually move). This date needs to be agreed by everyone in the chain. Your Solicitor will liaise with all other Solicitors in the chain to achieve this. Once this has been agreed your Solicitor can exchange contracts. Once you have exchanged this forms a legally binding contract which means the purchase is secure.

      How do I pick up the keys once I've completed?

      This will depend on the level of service the Vendor has chosen. We will advise you of this and it will be detailed in the instructions letter that we send you at offer stage.

      In most cases the Vendor will arrange directly with you a time to meet and handover keys. If the Vendor has chosen our Sales Progression Service, then Forefront will deliver the keys to you at a mutually convenient place as soon we get the call from the Vendor's Solicitor that funds have been received and keys can be released - then the property is all yours - Congratulations!

      • Seller Testimonial

        extremely helpful staff made it a pleasure
        We found from the initial meeting with Forefront you were very professional and straight to the point about all our questions. Other estate agents spent far too much time saying how great they were compared to anyone else. The low cost was fantastic - it brought the house moving bill down dramatically! Other estate agents were asking for more than double than Forefront, for doing exactly the same job! We found Forefront friendly, very professional, always ready to answer any questions promptly and a bargain price. We would recommend Forefront to anyone.

      • Seller Testimonial

        I would be very happy to recommend them
        I was really pleased with the very competitive fee from Forefront. I was worried that this would inevitably mean I received a lower quality service than a traditional estate agent. However, this was most definitely not the case. Forefront were fast and efficient, and the staff at Forefront, especially Gemma, stopped the sale from falling through, giving better advice than my legal team! I would thoroughly recommend Forefront, they exceeded my expectations on price and quality. Pete Williams, vendor of 39 Boatman Close, Oakhurst

        The low fee saved us a substantial amount of money
        We would recommend Forefront to anyone looking to sell their home. We were happy with the service we received to sell our home in Kingsdown Park. The advertising and photos shown on the web were excellent and we were delighted when we accepted an offer within two weeks of marketing the property. Nicky and Rich Iles, vendors of 24 Wynndale Close, Kingsdown Park

      Title

      • Introduction

        image cannot be displayed
        In order to stand out from the traditional estate agent we had to change the way our company was structured. Previous experience tells us that very few customers actually visit estate agents offices these days, as the majority of enquiries come over the telephone or internet, from the local press or 'for sale' signs.
