    Landlord guide

    Making It Presentable
    Quite simply, a well-maintained, clean and tidy property with a reasonable standard of neutral decoration will be more attractive to good quality tenants. Thus meaning it will be easier to achieve a good level of rent.

    To Furnish or Not to Furnish?
    You need to decide whether you want to let your property furnished, part furnished or unfurnished. It's great if you can offer any option, as this means we can market it to a wider audience. As a minimum, it would be advantageous to provide decent quality carpets, flooring and light fittings. In terms of decorating and soft furnishings, keep it fresh and neutral.

    Safety First
    The safety of your tenants is very important, so make sure you have all required safety checks carried out at least once a year, such as a Gas Safety check and having all electrical equipment tested. It goes without saying that your rental property should be fitted with smoke alarms throughout.

    By law, you will need an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) for your rental property. We can help you to organise this, as you won't be able to market the property without one. This needs to be sorted as soon as possible. Please note they are valid for 10 years.

    Keeping an Account
    A suitably detailed professional inventory (Schedule of Condition) of the property and its content is absolutely essential and should be completed at the start and end of each tenancy. Having a good inventory means that any future disputes that may arise when a tenant moves out, can be dealt with efficiently, especially if money needs to be deducted from the deposit for alleged damage.

    Who Is Moving In?
    Try not to become too emotionally attached to the property, as it is always hard to let go of a property you love, so try to distance yourself from the process. This way you'll be able to keep a relatively open mind about your potential tenants. Don't set unrealistic expectations, as this only reduces your target market. You should be aware that interested tenants might try and negotiate on the price. Depending on the tenant's offer, it's worth weighing up the pros and cons - is it worth holding out for the amount you want, or is it better to accept the offer and reduce the time the property is empty and not making money? We will be able to advise you on this decision.

    What To Expect From Us?
    Our property management is second to none and you will not be disappointed. Feedback from potential tenants on viewings can be very honest, but more importantly valuable. Your rental property will not be everyone's cup of tea, but be open minded and welcoming of their comments - if the same observations are made several times then it could be time to make a change.

    Possible Considerations
    Maybe you could consider employing staff to help look after your property, like a cleaner and gardener. This means you can preserve some level of control over your property's maintenance and condition.

    Making the First Step
    So you're thinking about renting a property? Well there are a few tips to follow to get you started. Have a think about the area you'd like to live in, do your research and figure out a specific location. Make a list of the things that are really important to you such as local transport links, easy walking distance to shops, well placed for schools, and use these to focus your search. It would be helpful to transfer this list into 'must-haves' and 'nice-to-haves' so we know what we're looking for. Also make sure you have decided on your maximum monthly allowance for rent, remember to consider your other outgoings and bills in order to agree the correct amount you are able to afford.

    Get the Ball Rolling
    Once you've decided what you want to look for in a rental property, it's time to get the ball moving and contact us directly. We will take all of your contact details, register you on the system and take notes of your preferences - the lettings business is fast-moving and you don't want to miss out on your ideal property. This is the time to be clear about when you need to move into your rental property. If you need somewhere urgently, let us know, and we'll do everything we can to find you a suitable place.
    Viewing Properties

    We encourage prospective tenants to try to be available and as flexible as possible. As we've said before, the lettings business is incredibly fast moving and when a good property comes to the market there can be a rush to view and offers are often made immediately.

    Don't automatically be put off by anything in the property, for example if you don't like the wall colour or the couch isn't big enough, then please come speak to us. We urge our landlords to be as flexible as possible and accommodate tenant's requests whenever they can.

    If you would like the landlord to undertake any improvement works, or add/remove furniture, your request must be put in as soon as you decide to make an offer, this is because it can be much harder to get these jobs agreed once you have moved in.

    Fees & Charges
    When you agree to rent a property you will be expected to pay a security deposit and the first month's rent up front. There will be other administration fees that you will be liable for as well, like references and drawing up the tenancy agreement, you can contact us to find more details on this. You must also check your tenancy agreement to see if there are any other charges you may be liable for.
