Some Of Your Questions Answered....
  • paragraph

    References

    References are taken up on all prospective tenants using an approved referencing company, in order to satisfy landlords that their property is likely to be well looked after and that the rent will be paid on time. Each prospective applicant is liable to pay an administration charge of £150 (includes VAT at 20%). The administration charge is non-refundable in the event that references prove unsatisfactory or the tenant withdraws the application before completion. If inconclusive information has been obtained on the prospective tenant it will be necessary to provide a guarantor to act as security for the term of the tenancy. Additional references for the guarantor will be charged at the same rate. The guarantor will need to be a UK resident and will have to provide similar references to those required for the proposed tenant. The references will be forwarded to our client (the landlord) for their approval. If the references are acceptable we will draw up the tenancy agreement. In other cases it may be appropriate to ask that all the rent is paid upfront in advance at the start of the tenancy.

    Deposit

    A deposit equivalent to one months rent plus £200, (the additional £200 is non refundable in the event of the tenant pulling out of the deal and is to be paid as a reservation fee at the time the reference payment is made) the deposit will be held in a client account with our management department as part of the tenancy deposit scheme, for the duration of the tenancy to offset any costs to remedy any breach of the tenancy agreement. The deposit can not be used as the last months rental payment.

    Tenancy agreements

    We have different forms of tenancy agreement, which specifically cater for both the landlord and tenants needs. It is important that you read your tenancy agreement carefully and make sure you understand all the clauses in it. Anything you do not understand can be explained by our Lettings Manager. Please note that unlike many of our competitors, we do not charge either tenant or landlord for tenancy agreements.

    Share of tenancy renewal

    A fee of £90 (includes VAT at 20%) is payable. We will discuss the length of the new term, draw up a new contract and ask you and the landlord to sign.

    Initial month's payment

    The first rental instalment plus deposit must be received in cleared funds before the date the tenancy commences.

    Inventory and check-out fees

    Before the tenancy commences an Inventory clerk will draw up an Inventory to provide a detailed schedule of condition of the property together with its contents. The Inventory is a form of protection against disagreements at the end of the tenancy. Preparation of the Inventory is charged to the landlord. There may be a check out fee payable by you depending on what arrangements the landlord makes.

    Tenant fee schedule

    To make things clearer for you, please find below a schedule outlining the costs involved:

    Pre-tenancy

    Non-refundable holding deposit*: £200 per property

    Administration/referencing fee: £150 per applicant (includes VAT at £20%)

    Guarantor referencing (if required): £150 per guarantor (includes VAT at 20%)

    Tenancy agreement and administration: No charge

    Security deposit*: Equal to one month's rent, plus £200. For example, if the monthly rent is £1,000 pcm, the security deposit will be £1,200. The non-refundable holding deposit paid initially will form part of the security deposit.

    First month's rent: payable in advance of the tenancy start date.

    During your tenancy

    Share of tenancy renewal: £90 per tenancy (includes VAT at 20%)

    End of tenancy

    Check-out fee: £96 to £114 per tenancy (includes VAT at 20%). Inventory prices are based on the number of bedrooms in a property and the furnished or unfurnished status. Please ask for exact prices for a particular property.

    *The above listed figures are our standard fee and deposit amounts. On some properties our landlords may ask for a larger security deposit and/or for us to collect a larger holding deposit. If there is a specific property you are interested in, please ask us to confirm the figures for you.

    • Landlord Testimonial

      happy to recommend them to any landlord

      I have had the pleasure of dealing with Proffitt & Holt for many years now with regards to five of our rental properties. In the beginning, I dealt with Russell, but now with John and a few times Samantha. I have always found them to be very professional with all aspects, and they have always found me great tenants. I can be tough and will not stand any nonsense, and expect people to be 'on the ball', and so far, they have always delivered. So, I would be happy to recommend them to any prospective landlord.

      A professional approach to selling your home
      image cannot be displayed

      Selling your home successfully is more than just floor  plans and the right price; it's about choosing a local, independent estate agent who has a detailed understanding of the marketplace your property sits in and the expertise to market it effectively.

    Buying a property
    • paragraph

      image cannot be displayed

      At Proffitt & Holt, we totally understand how stressful buying a new property can be. We also recognise that it is probably the most important and expensive transaction you're ever likely to undergo.

      We're here to help you every step of the way, making sure your journey to buying your property is as stress-free as possible. So, to enable you to unravel the complexities of this process, we've set out below a brief overview of the various procedures involved.

      Registration: The first requirement is for you to register your details and property specifications at our Watford branch. Our database features hundreds of properties and we're sure that with our local knowledge and expertise, we'll be able to find you a property to suit your needs, be it a straightforward move or a 'Buy to Let' investment.

      Viewing: Our offices are open Monday - Friday 9am until 5.30pm and on Saturday from 9am until 5pm to arrange those all-important viewings of your selected properties.

      Mortgage: Through our partnership with the Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB), we can provide you with a premier mortgage service where our expert advisers can offer you a range of exclusive deals you won't find anywhere else on the high street.

      Making your offer: Once you have located your ideal property, your offer will be submitted by us to the vendor for their consideration.

      Accepted offer/instructing solicitors: Through our award-winning conveyancing partner, Premier Property Lawyers, we can make sure that all of the legalities of your property transaction are covered, helping your sale move forward as efficiently and stress-free as possible.

      Survey: The next step is to obtain the mortgage valuation, as required by law. This will be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor acting for your lender. The report is to provide a valuation to determine whether the amount to be loaned is secure and also deals with the basic condition of the property.

      Searches: These are conducted by the buyer's solicitor who submits a local authority search to the local borough council. Its purpose is to ascertain if there is any planning consent previously granted on the property or if there are any other local issues which may have an impact on the purchase.

      Draft contracts: The draft contract is drawn up by the seller's solicitor and is forwarded to the buyer's solicitor for consideration.

      Mortgage offer: The lender is now in possession of the mortgage valuation survey and, subject to the findings of this report, receipt/approval of the mortgage application and provided all references and checks have been conducted satisfactorily, the lender will send a formal mortgage offer to the buyer and their solicitor. The document is then signed and returned and funds requested by the buyer's solicitor.

      Exchange of contracts: Once the contract has been signed by both parties, a deposit (normally a small percentage of the purchase price) is paid by either bank transfer or banker's draft. At this stage, the parties agree on a date for completion.

      Completion: Completion usually follows a few days or weeks after exchange of contracts. The balance of the purchase price is transferred by the buyer's solicitor to the seller's solicitor and the keys released.

      Congratulations, you are now the owner of your new property!
