    General Information

    Landlords have a statutory responsibility for certain repairs and maintenance and we have a team on hand of qualified contractors that can carryout the work. Along with this are certain regulations that need to be followed;

    · Gas Safety Regulation

    It is a legal requirement for a gas safety certificate to be issued by a Gas Safe registered engineer before a tenancy commences. This certificate is renewed on an annual basis. We employ a team of engineers who can carryout the inspection for you.

    · Energy Performance Certificate

    From 1st October 2008, all rental properties with a new tenancy agreement in England and Wales will be required by law to have an EPC. SBK can organise this on your behalf.

    · Fire and Furnishings (Safety) Regulations

    Soft furnishings must have a permanent attached label confirming that it complies with the official fire resistance standards.

    · Electrical Regulations

    The landlord is seen to owe a duty of care to the tenants with regards the safe installation to the electricity supplied at the property. Even though there is no mandatory need for an electrical certificate, we strongly recommend as agents you have on carried out.

From the moment the initial enquiry is made, to when a tenant moves in to the property and on the final day handing back the keys, tenants priorities are at the forefront of our minds. Maybe this is why we have so many tenants thanking us for going the extra mile.

    We focus a lot of our time and energy listening to tenants requirements and helping find them a suitable home to live in. Should it be for six months or six years, we want you to feel comfortable where you are living.

    Our website is constantly updated to provide you with up to the minute details of available properties. A member of our lettings team will talk through any suitable properties and by providing full brochures and floor plans, you know if the property will be right for you even before stepping through the front door. All our viewings are accompanied so we are on hand to answer any questions you may have about the property.

    Should you find a suitable property through SBK, we will ask you to pay a reservation fee to secure the property and will provide you with a Pre Tenancy Reservation form and Tenancy Application form. These will need to be completed in order to progress with the application and will provide us with all the necessary information. References are obtained through a professional agency and form a crucial part of renting a property. We require the following satisfactory references;

    · Credit check including identity check and previous address search

    · Employers reference

    · Current landlords reference (if applicable) to confirm the tenancy was conducted in a satisfactory manner and the rent was paid on time

    If successful in passing the referencing we prepare the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and arrange the move in date. All relevant paperwork to cover legislation will be provided to make your stay in the property as comfortable as possible.
