    How we can help

    The standard of rental accommodation and services provided by landlords and agents can vary enormously. JLL is a licensed member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), which means we are bound by a strict code of conduct and professional standards. So, in simple terms, we'll find the right property for you and make sure that renting is straightforward and enjoyable. We will manage your search in an efficient and friendly manner and will be transparent throughout the process.

    Making an Offer

    When making an offer for your preferred property, the landlord will consider the terms in full before making a decision. The offer terms you will need to provide are:

    • Confirmation of proposed rental amount

    • Proposed tenancy start date

    • Length of tenancy and if a break clause is required

    • Frequency of the rental payments

    • Prospective tenants and their employment / student status

    • Any special conditions of the offer

    Checklist

    Competition for rental homes can be fierce, so it's important to put yourself in the best possible position to act quickly. That means budgeting carefully, remembering utility bills, council tax and media charges are all in addition to the rent quoted.

    Once we've helped you find your perfect home, the main things to consider are:

    Costs:

    • Agency fees - £240 per property for tenancy and paperwork preparation and £60 referencing for each tenant/guarantor (including VAT).

    Deposit - this usually equates to six weeks' rent.

    Rent - your initial payment of rent will need to be transferred in advance, prior to the agreed moving-in date.

    Agreeing terms - once you've settled on a property and agreed the tenancy terms, you may need to pay a reservation fee.

    We'll then prepare your tenancy paperwork and check your references.

    References:

    We'll need the details of your employer, bank and previous landlord (if you have one) and if you are studying, confirmation of your student status.

    Personal ID:

    You'll need to provide your passport plus proof of current address and visa if required.

    Check in and receiving keys:

    Once the paperwork is in place, your initial monies have cleared and all of your obligations have been met, we recommend that you attend the inventory check in, following which you'll be given the keys so you can move into your new home.

      YOUR GUIDE TO SELLING A PROPERTY

      Getting started

      If you're selling your home or investment property, your first decision is easy: appoint an estate agent. Deciding which agent to engage is a little more challenging.

      Be wary of agents who provide high valuations or who offer low fees. High valuations are often a tactical device used to win sales instructions. Low fees, on the other hand, indicate an inexperienced or under-resourced agency. Both are equally unhelpful if you want to engage an experienced, efficient agency.

      Your chosen agency should have a good sales track record that stems from an intimate understanding of the area, a responsive, professional approach and the resources to deliver a high level of service. Their ideas and marketing experience are important too. Your sales partner should be able to suggest ways to enhance the value of your home and be able to apply the full potential of digital and social media marketing as well as traditional channels.

      Beyond that, you'll need to instruct a solicitor to draw up a contract and handle negotiations. Plus you'll need to put all the supporting paperwork in place: surveyors' certificates, planning permissions and building warranties.

      Presenting your home

      Getting your home looking its best for viewings is very important. Begin by having a clear out and put non-essential items in storage. A professional clean of your carpets, chimney and windows can pay dividends. Then move on to the garden - and make sure that's equally tidy. If your garden is a focal point, then pick a good time for pictures as that can make all the difference. Think about a few coats of paint, particularly for your homes' entrance and front, as this will create the best possible first impression. And it may be worth installing some good quality rented furniture for unfurnished properties.

      As hard as it may be to stay away, we generally recommend that you aren't present when prospective buyers visit. In our experience, this can make prospective purchasers uncomfortable. A good agent will always provide feedback on each viewing.

      The sales process

      No two sales are quite the same, but there are always set stages on the journey. The key point is to work with an experienced agent that can support you at every step.

      Step 1: The offer

      Prospective buyers will make offers through your estate agent, whose job it is to achieve the highest price for your property. You need to decide whether the highest offer is the right offer, as it may involve some risk. For example, your potential buyer may be in a long chain and dependent on other sales to complete.

      Step 2: Before exchanging contracts

      In most cases, you're not legally obliged to sell your property until contracts have been exchanged. However, the conveyancing process can sometimes be tricky, your agent should protectively manage the sale on your behalf and liaise between all parties, as well as provide you with updates.

      Step 3: Exchange and Completion

      This is where your legal responsibilities begin. First you and your buyer will both sign and exchange contracts. At this point you'll agree a completion date for the transaction and your buyer will place a deposit on your property, usually 10%. If they don't complete the purchase, they'll be liable for the "specific performance" of the contract. Your buyer will pay the balance of the purchase price when you complete.

      Worldwide reach

      With 230 offices across 80 countries, JLL is one of the world's leading property groups. We have an international reach and network that few UK agents can rival. Our multilingual teams in the Capital ensure we're best placed to realise opportunities in China, Russia and the Middle East.

This gives us a lead in this sector. What's more, we use the latest digital technologies for effective marketing campaigns in the UK and internationally.

      YOUR GUIDE TO BUYING A HOME OR INVESTMENT PROPERTY

      Getting started

      Purchasing a home is the largest investment most of us are likely to make, so it is essential to be properly informed. Searching property portals can be a good starting point, but it is also important to instruct an experienced estate agent. Their professional advice is an excellent resource and will offer further insight into the market.

      Talk to JLL and you'll soon discover how our experts bring insight and guidance that cannot be found elsewhere. We're often asked to bring properties to buyers before they appear in the public domain.

      Being prepared

      The market moves quickly, so getting organised early can pay real dividends. Be ready to instruct a solicitor to draw up the purchase contract. Most importantly of all, get your mortgage in place as quickly as you can. Engaging an independent mortgage broker can help you find the right product and advice. Don't forget all the paperwork you'll need for your application, including proof of ID, bank statements and pay slips.

      Leasehold or freehold?

      A freehold property and the land it stands on are owned outright, making buyers responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and repair. Most houses fall under this category. Leasehold properties are only owned by the buyer for a defined period of time. Most apartments are leasehold.

      In a leasehold property, you pay ground rent and service charge to the freeholder. In return, they maintain the shared parts of the building and repair the exterior. After two years of owning a leasehold property, you can usually extend a lease subject to you and the freeholder qualifying. If a lease isn't extended by the end of the specified term, its ownership passes to the freeholder.

      Some properties in apartment blocks are for sale with a share of the freehold. This means that the residents collectively own the building and the land it sits on. As such, they're responsible for appointing a managing agent and setting service charges.

      The purchasing process

      Every purchase is different, but there are some set steps. The important point is to work with experienced agents that can support you at every stage.

      Step 1: The offer

      When you've found the home you want, make an offer through the estate agent. Negotiate if the vendor doesn't accept your initial offer, but don't forget that in most cases the agent is paid by the seller to achieve the best price. When you've agreed the price, the estate agent will prepare a Memorandum of Sale confirming the terms of the sale.

      Step 2: The critical period

      There is no binding legal obligation for a vendor to sell the property to the prospective buyer. Until contracts are exchanged, they can sell to someone else or withdraw the property.

      As a buyer, you could lose the fees for the professional services you've paid if the seller pulls out of the deal.

      You need to keep the ball rolling by instructing a solicitor to conduct searches, review the contract and negotiate any issues. You will also need to engage a surveyor to inspect the property. They'll either complete a basic assessment in the form of a home buyer's report or a full structural and building survey. Finalising the financing is important at this point as finance-related delays are a common cause of sellers pulling out. You'll need a formal mortgage offer letter from your lender, who will complete a valuation of your home.

      Step 3: Exchange and completion

      Contracts are signed and exchanged when both parties are happy with the terms of the deal. At this point a completion date is set and the buyer makes a deposit payment - usually 10% of the purchase price. You may forfeit this if you fail to complete the purchase.

      Costs and fees

      Budgeting carefully is important. Don't forget these additional costs:

      • Mortgage fees - for arrangement costs, valuation survey and legal services

      • Legal fees - for drawing up contracts

      • Local Authority searches - conveyancing

      • Land Registry fees

      • Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) - which is 0% on the first £125,000 of the property price; 2% on the next £125,000; 5% on the next £675,000; 10% on the next £575,000; 12% on the rest (in excess of £1.5 million). SDLT is charged at 15% on residential properties costing more than £500,000 when companies and collective investment schemes buy them

      Moving and storage costs

      Worldwide reach

      With 230 offices across 80 countries, JLL is one of the world's leading property groups.
