Some Of Your Questions Answered....
  • paragraph

    References - £125 Plus VAT (£150) Per Person

    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 £125 plus VAT. 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 - One Months Rent Plus £200

    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 - No Charge

    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.

    Renewal Fees - No Charge

    We do not charge tenant fees to renew a contract. We will discuss the length of the new term, draw up a new contract and ask you and 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.If there's anything else you would like to know, just ask....

Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

     Kevin & Ben were very helpful throughout the whole process Ben was top all round particularly during a difficult period with our buyer at the time. I'm sure he'll remember it if you ask him!
  • Seller Testimonial

    I dealt exclusively with Ben Colling. Speaking to the same person every time made the flow of information so much quicker and didn't have to repeat myself. Ben always got back to me when he said I would. Ben has changed my view of estate agents!
  • Seller Testimonial

     Service was great - we had such an easy time when we were selling the property .Ben kept the process moving & was polite, efficient throughout the process even when handling many parties - I would recommend him and Proffitt & Holt Watford to anyone.
  • Seller Testimonial

     I would not hesitate to recommend Proffitt & Holt, in particular Kevin Anderson, who dealt with our sale. He was friendly, professional & efficient, and always happy to help and answer questions. Great customer service.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Our sale was due to a separation so quite an emotional time.Paul and Ben who were the main staff I dealt gave me total confidence that they would sell my home and they delivered. They went always went the extra mile, nothing was too much trouble
  • Seller Testimonial

    Extremely good service and the sale of my property was helped along by the agent at P&H even though it was being sold by another agent. I would recommend them and use them for future sales
  • Seller Testimonial

    Paul's advice was excellent. The house was sold quickly and at a very acceptable price. It was a pleasure to deal with him and Kevin who handled all matters with care and quiet efficiency, whilst keeping me well informed at all times.
  • Seller Testimonial

     Kevin at Proffit and Holt did an excellent job, I had viewings on my house even before there was time to produce the particulars. My house was sold eight days after Proffit & Holt did the valuation, I think this was due to them sending strong buyers.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Simply the best experience we have ever had with any agent. Great knowledge of the market and area, not only that but they know how to get the job done. Well done Paul & team
  • Seller Testimonial

    During what turned into a particularly contentious sale, the team at Proffit and Holt managed every aspect with diplomacy, sensitivity and consideration. I cannot praise them highly enough.

    First class service from beginning to end from Paul and his team.Kept informed at all stages with constructive advice throughout. Instructions carried out as requested and all support staff on message.What could have been stressful was made stress free and manageable
  • Seller Testimonial

    A most professional service from Ben at Proffitt & Holt, Watford. It's reassuring to see a company that still has old school values regarding service level and due diligence when there are so many "outfits" out there that give the industry a bad name.

  • Buyer Testimonial

    I wanted to drop you a line to say how hugely impressed my wife and I were with Ben Collings of your Watford branch. Our property was actually on with another agent (who acted very poorly on my behalf I felt) but in a complicated chain Ben went way above and beyond to ensure that the chain completed to everyone's satisfaction. Always friendly and always prompt with his updates (whether by phone, email or SMS at 1130 at night!) Ben was a pleasure to work with and I wish there were more people with his qualities in the sector. He is a credit to your business and the branch and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend P&H or Ben should the need ever arise
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Dear Ben Thanks for all your hard work and determination, mingled with humour and wit! You finally pushed it past the finish line.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Dear Ben" thank you so much for all you did to facilitate our move and smooth out all the wrinkles along the way, it was a genuine pleasure to work with you.
  • Buyer Testimonial

    Dear Richard I wanted to write to commend the superb support and service we received from Ben Colling during our recent, but difficult house move, particularly as he was not our agent. However, without Ben's careful and expert negotiation, our very fragile chain would not have reach the successful conclusion it did and we now will complete on 22 November. I will highly recommend Ben at Profitt and Holt in Watford to my colleagues and friends in the future. Please do offer our most sincere thanks and gratitude to Ben for all his help.
