Tenants Responsibilities
  • paragraph

    GENERAL NOTE -
    A tenant takes on the majority of the responsibilities under a residential tenancy agreement as it is he / she taking on the property. Most will be included in our standard tenancy agreement but you may add or subtract certain clauses, subject to the tenant's consent. The tenant's main responsibilities are normally as follows:
  • paragraph

    RENT & UTILITY BILLS
    image cannot be displayed
    RENT - Rent from the tenant will solely cover his/her occupancy of your property. When you let a property through us, you pay rent in advance monthly, we process on to you. It is standard practice for you to pay rent via a standing order paying directly from your account to ensure prompt payment. Rent is due monthly, in advance and is payable on the same date each month as the date the tenancy starts. 

    UTILITY BILLS - It is normal practice for the tenant to pay for all gas, oil, electricity & water used along with any council tax liability. The tenant's liability for these bills' will commence from the first day of the tenancy and will continue for the duration of the stay. Appropriate meter readings will need to be taken on the first day of the tenant's occupancy and once we have notified the utility suppliers, they will write to the tenants in order to set up the relevant accounts in the tenant's name(s).

    TELEPHONE & T.V. LICENCE - The tenant will be responsible for obtaining & paying for a TV licence covering the duration of their stay. The tenant will also be responsible for paying any charges in connection with any telephone or TV facilities they choose to have at the property. The Tenancy Agreement is worded accordingly.

    CONTENTS INSURANCE - We ask our tenants to hold contents insurance to cover their own possessions. This insurance should also cover the tenant accidentally damaging the landlord's goods.
  • paragraph

    MAINTENANCE
    image cannot be displayed
    The tenant will be expected to carry out basic property maintenance during the tenancy such as cleaning windows, keeping drain covers clear of blockages, replacing light bulbs and ensuring the property is left locked and secure when going out. 

    The tenant will be contractually obliged to report any items of required maintenance or repairs, either directly to the landlord or to the agent, within a predetermined timescale, (usually 48hrs) in order to avoid any deterioration of the property resulting from neglect.
  • paragraph

    GARDENS
    image cannot be displayed
    The tenant will normally be obligated under the Tenancy Agreement to carry out basic garden maintenance, to include cutting lawns and keeping the weeds down. In order for the tenant to deal with the garden it is accepted that the landlord provide the tenant with the necessary tools, which would normally include a lawnmower, a rake and a pair of shears.
  • paragraph

    CONTRACTUAL
    image cannot be displayed
    The tenant is obligated to abide by the tenancy agreement for the duration of the term, along with any extension thereof. This agreement would be signed by the landlord and tenant and forms a legally binding contract between both parties.
  • paragraph

    TENANT REFERENCING
    image cannot be displayed
    Part of our job as your agent is to find you the most suitable tenant(s) who you can accept or decline according to your requirements. In order to do this, we undertake to assess a prospective tenant's suitability via independent referencing checks. 

    Our basic requirements of a prospective tenant (prior to the referencing process) are that they should be employed or self-employed, able to pay the rent and associated bills via their own resources and aged 18yrs or over.

    The purpose of the reference checks is to confirm that he / she has proven to be reliable in the past and should, therefore, reduce the risk of the tenant proving unsuitable in the future. In order to be as unbiased as possible, we employ an independent referencing agency who in turn are underwritten by an insurance company, to carry out the following checks on our behalf:
  • paragraph

    I NCOME CHECK
    A current employer's reference (or accountant's reference if they are self employed) will be sought in order to confirm the tenant's job status, length of service, position within the company and his/her income to confirm that he / she can afford the rent and bills.
  • paragraph

    CREDIT SEARCH
    An up-to-date Credit Search would be conducted on the tenant's stated address(s) which should show information relating to the tenant's credit history including any outstanding debts or judgements registered against them, previous addresses are also checked.
  • paragraph

    PREVIOU S TENANT CHECK
    If the tenant has rented before our referencing company would check with the previous landlord/letting agency whether or not the tenant had been suitable in the past.
  • paragraph

    ELECTORAL ROLL
    We will seek to confirm that the tenant is currently registered on the local Electoral/Voter's Roll at their current address given. (It may also give an indication of how often the tenant has moved recently, thereby indicating his/her probable consistency). Once these checks have been completed, we report the findings to you so that you can then decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the applicants.

    Justin Davis MARLA - HEAD OF PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
    In his former life Justin worked in the police force working predominantly out of the airports in the south of England. In 2009 a career change saw Justin join the property management team at Sterling Lettings & Property Management department. With his ARLA exams soon passed Justin soon achieved a number of promotions and now heads up the Property Management Department. Tasked with dealing with ensuring landlords rents are processed correctly and on time and using his calm personality to negotiation between tenants and landlord in the rare instances there are deposit disputes after a tenancy has terminated - not a job for the fainthearted!

    Justin comments:

    "Having worked in the police force for a number of years I was use to rigid structures and the need to adhere to policy. In lettings there is no grey areas - it is always black and white with a correct and incorrect way of doing things to ensure you protect your landlords & tenants by following legislation - which, while frustrating is a necessity. Very often I enter into discussions with landlords who have either tried to let a property themselves or used an agent 'because they were the cheapest' only to fail foul of either bad advise of ending up with unsuitable tenants in their biggest asset..their property. The mantra 'you get what you pay for' really does apply in lettings and property management with so many agents trying to be a jack of all trades dabbling in both sales and lettings but having expertise in neither!'

    Tara Lennon- ASSISTANT HEAD OF PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
    Having worked in lettings and property management since 2006 Tara brings a wealth of knowledge to the team at Sterling, which she joined in 2012 having been head hunted on our behalf. Tara is born and bred locally and is a 'rock' of an employee for Sterling. If there is a drain that needs unblocking, a boiler that has broken down or a fence that needs putting back up - there are not many reliable, costs effective trades people in the area Tara doesn't know! While assisting Justin on the financial side of lettings Tara is the main point of contact for tenants to report faults to and liaising with landlords to get the best quotes possible to keep their investment properties in the best condition possible!

    Tara comments:

    "When I was approached to work for Sterling Estate Agents I was really keen to meet with them and find out more. Being local to the area I had friends who were either tenants or landlords with Sterling so knew they had a great reputation and I was keen to understand more about their lettings and property management operation. Once I met with them I knew this was a company I would feel at home with and joined them in 2012 and not looked back since. It is so refreshing to work for a company who doesn't try and cut corners and maintains a professional approach to all aspects of the business."

    Rachel Comments:

    "When I was looking for my last career move I was determined to get a role which would challenge me and make the best of my characteristics and strengths. Dealing with the public is a challenging job that I thrive on and I love being a problem solver - whereas most people hate sorting out problems, I love it, and whats more, sorting out a problem quickly and to everyone's satisfaction gives me a real feeling of job enrichment. Working with a close knit team is also a real benefit since we can bounce off each other to ensure the best outcome is always achieved."

      Sterling went the extra mile on my behalf
      By Lorraine Olivia'
      Services: Lettings (as a Landlord)
      Rent PCM: £795
      Would you recommend?: Yes
      I have been a client of Sterling for several years and been very satisfied with the service. I have not dealt with Olivia before and recently one of my rental properties became available after a 5 year tenancy. I emailed her and indicated the type of tenant I was looking for who would be appropriate for the property. I asked her to check on the condition of the property and what work might need doing as the existing tenant will move out before Easter and I wanted to organise contractors to keep the void period to a minimum. Olivia emailed back immediately in a friendly but professional way. She was pro-active, and set up an Open Day with reserved viewings and texted regularly with prospective tenants names and times. The property was let (subject to referencing) to the first couple who viewed..... I felt Sterling went the extra mile on my behalf and would do so for all her clients. A valuable asset to Sterling and its customers....

      Benjamin Bird BA(HONS) MNAEA MARLA - COMPANY OWNER
      Having worked for a corporate estate agency in the early part of his career Ben soon became disenchanted with the lack of flexibility, low investment in marketing, and general lack of service - all of which prohibited an estate agent generating the best price of his clients. In 2001 Ben grasped the nettle and opened Sterling Estate Agents which delivers our customers the very best marketing available, the best service and an honest approach all of which results in the optimum price being achieved from the best quality buyers.  

      Since 2001 Sterling have now grown to be the only estate agent with 4 prominent high street offices in Dacorum, supported by strong teams of experienced estate agents from each office 

      Ben comments:
      'When we opened Sterling Estate Agents we always had a vision of delivering the best of everything. I am lucky that having such experienced teams allows me to be a very 'hands on' business owner, ensuring I can still do the job I love - being an estate agent. This means I am still have a very proactive and effective input on the day to day running in all the offices including valuations, viewings and overseeing all offers which come in on our properties.'

      Sam Carter - SALES PROGRESSOR
      In her former life Sam was a solicitor....and now heads up our sales progression department. Internally Sam is considered the guardian angel of the company since she is tasked with looking after our sales once they have been agreed. Sam's role involves liaising with all the estate agents in a chain, the solicitors and giving valuable updates to our sellers and buyers. Sam's experience, problem solving skills and sheer tensity are all skills ideally honed to such a job. If you want to reduce the chances of a stress free sale Sam is the lady to look after you! 

      Sam comments:
      Having previously been a solicitor, and run an independent estate agent as a branch manager I am fully aware of the problems and pitfalls once the sale leaves the estate agents office and is placed in the hands of the solicitors. When I was a branch manager at my previous employers it could sometimes be difficult to find time in between valuations and negotiating offers to dedicated serious time to progressing sales and updating clients. Sterling have created this role to ensure our clients are kept in the loop at all stages and not just forgotten about - this is yet another aspect of Sterling Estate Agents dedication to providing the best possible customer service.'

      Carol's comments:

      "Since starting at Sterling my enthusiasm for estate agency has grown, as has my expertise and knowledge. Working alongside a very experienced and professional team has given me the confidence to deal with most situations that come up during the buying and selling of properties. I enjoy the fact that no two days are the same. I look forward to meeting with new vendors and buyers and building relationships with them both. The best part of the job is ultimately when you complete a sale and both your vendor and buyer are both very happy and satisfied with the service you have provided. As a company we are fortune to offer our vendors the very best marketing coverage ensuring we always achieve the highest price from the best buyers.'

        We had previously tried to sell our property using the two local estate agents in boxmoor which had proved to be a waste of some ten months. Sterlings were recommended to us by a friend so we asked for a valuation. After talking it through with Ben Bird we instructed the sale. Everything was carried out efficiently and the property was marketed, after approx 2 weeks we had 3 best and final offers, we chose one and the sale completed some weeks later. All of the staff we dealt with were excellent, they kept us up to date and informed throughout the process. After the previous experiences with the other agents Sterings made it seem easy. We have already recommended them to other people and will continue to do so in the future.
        Comment on agent fees:
        The fees were slightly higher than the previous agents but you get what you pay for, so we were happy to pay slightly more for a superior service
