    Finding a property to rent

    When looking for the ideal property to rent you may want to consider the following:

    • Your budget, how much would you like to pay per month? Remember to budget for utilities and council tax
    • How long do you need to rent the property for? Will it be long term or a short term stop gap? When do you need to move in?
    • The local area - consider how close you are to schools, amenities, community, family and friends
    • Is the garden suitable and who will be responsible for the maintenance of the garden?
    • Does the size of the property suit your requirements? If you are looking for an unfurnished property will your furniture fit?
    • Does the property have broadband, good mobile phone reception for your network, cable/satellite dish, adequate sockets, telephone and TV aerial points?
    • There may be restrictions such as pets, children, smoking, DSS etc.
    • Energy Efficiency: Landlords are now required to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) (excluding listed buildings). It contains information about a property's energy use and typical energy costs and recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money. An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)
  • paragraph

    Securing a Property

    The best properties tend to go quickly. Be prepared to provide the following information:

    • Photo identification (such as a driving license or passport)
    • Evidence of your current address (such as a utility bill)
    • Deposit funds
    • Funds for administration fee
    • Reservation fee
    • Be ready to sign a tenancy application form
    • If you need a guarantor, get this set up in good time
    • Referencing: criteria may include the following: We will contact any Landlord you have had within the last 3 years. Confirmation of earnings. A credit check - this will allow them to see if you have a good history of paying your bills. Your bank details - including bank name, account number and sort-code. Details of your employment - your employer, job title, payroll number, salary, previous employer, etc.
    • Deposit: Once the full deposit is paid, the property is then secured. The deposit will be held by the Deposit Protection Service (DPS). The deposit is held against any non-payment of rent or damages to the property over and above fair wear and tear. No deductions can be taken from the deposit without either the agreement of the Landlord and Tenant, a decision by the Alternative Resolution Service, or court order. At the commencement of the tenancy, the deposit money will be registered under the scheme and sent to DPS. The Landlord and letting agent will retain reasonable costs if you pull out of the tenancy. Please see our reservation fee agreement
    • Tenancy Agreement: A tenancy agreement is a contract between you and the landlord, setting out the terms and conditions of the tenancy and the rights and obligations the landlord and the tenant have to each other and the property
    • Insurance: It is the job of the Landlord to insure the bricks and mortar of the property, but your Landlord won't insure your personal belongings
  • paragraph

    Moving In
    Your keys will be available for you to collect either at our local branch, or at your check-in appointment with the Agent, Landlord or Inventory Clerk.

    Meter readings will be taken at the property at the commencement of your tenancy and we will as letting agents notify all utility providers. This does not include TV licence, telephone or broadband which are your responsibility.
  • paragraph

    During The Tenancy
    Your Responsibilities

    Your obligations are fully set out in the tenancy agreement but will usually include:
    1. Pay the rent
    2. Keep the property clean and tidy
    3. Not to change the fabric of the property without permission

    Buying Through Us
    • paragraph

      Initial contact with us will usually be via a website, over the phone or in person at one of our nine offices. You can continue to get up-to-date lists of available properties on an ad hoc basis but you may prefer to register with us. This will allow us to send you details of properties just as they come to the market or when prices are revised.

      Our applicant database is web-based and shared instantly across all nine offices so that you need only sign-up once to be matched with any property that fits your requirements.

      You can register, update your details and requirements or de-register through this website. You will receive notification of new properties via e-mail and can download full colour particulars from your web portfolio.

      Alternatively, you can also register by contacting one of our offices where a member of staff will take your details and discuss the current market and properties available with you. We endeavour to get all staff to see the property but, where this has not been possible, someone who has seen it can ring you back.

      If any property is of interest please contact the relevant office to discuss it further and to make arrangements for a viewing.

      Once you make an offer it will be submitted in writing to the vendors. The staff will need to collect personal details from you, if not already known, such as the position of your own sale and availability of finance.

      We will advise you of the outcome of any offer. Once an offer is accepted, we will notify your solicitors at the same time as the vendors. Because agents can speak to both buyers' and sellers' solicitors we will keep in touch with you during the sale process with updates, up to the point at which contracts are exchanged .

      Following exchange of contracts we will liaise with you and the vendor about the hand over of keys at completion. This usually takes place in our office but with planning a member of staff may be able to meet you at the property.

      • Seller Testimonial

        From the start l had good sound advice
        Hi Daniel,

         l feel that your role as estate agents at Symonds and Sampson was exceeded, when selling my property for me. From the start l had good sound advice from Linda to prepare my flat for marketing, which was sold very quickly.

        Unfortunately my first purchaser pulled out because of personal reasons, but Symonds and Sampson acted promptly re-marketing my property straight away.  Another buyer was found within days, which was a relief as l nearly lost my purchase.

        There were lots of issues to be resolved on the sale, causing me a great deal of stress. But Steve, Daniel and their team at the Bridport office have always been at the other end of the phone to answer any questions from me , and,  if unable would find the answers, very efficiently and effectively , always keeping me updated on what was going on. Giving me reassurance and guidance. I much appreciated your support.

        l m now a much calmer person in my new home (l think) which l thought at times¿ was never going to happen and l m sure if it wasn't if it hadn't  been for your great team at the Bridport office. 

        Thank you all again

        selling the property so promptly and efficiently.
        Dear Daniel,

        May we take this opportunity to thank you for your help in selling the property s o promptly and efficiently.

        We were impressed with your presentation when you first visited the property and this prompted us to place the business with your company.

        Having had fairly regular experience of companies both buying and selling properties, it made a pleasant change to deal with Symonds and Sampson.

        Small things like people actually ringing back when they say they will does make a real difference. We hope to deal with your company again in the future.

        Best Regards Brian and Hilary Howell

You provided a human and friendly approach, and were always happy to give me updates and words of reassurance when the transaction got sticky. I should also say that it is great to deal with agents who seem intelligent and well informed. I would happily use your services again and recommend them to others.

        Daniel and all the team were very efficient,
        Dear Daniel and Steve,

        I have both sold and purchased through Symonds & Sampson in Bridport (July 2017) and I would thoroughly recommend them.

        My property was hard to sell because it was 3 storey with very steep stairs for which there was no fix, but Steve came up with some excellent ideas to help me present the house at its best

        Daniel and all the team were very efficient, always followed up viewings and he was a great support. Calls were always returned. Daniel especially helped me find my new home and when the solicitors on all sides were a little weak and petty, he was level headed and helped me find my way through.

        I noticed a marked difference for the better after the arrival in the Bridport office of Steve and then Daniel.

        clear front runners to market our property
        Dear Steve and Daniel,

        From our first introduction to Steve Allen we were extremely impressed with his sunny, confident and professional disposition. Steve's ability to appreciate and understand our unusual property and his broad local and wider understanding of the property market made him and his team the clear front runners to market our property. Steve offered a clear vision and wise steer in the marketing of our property, giving us great confidence in his ability to deliver and led to a respectful relationship.

        Steve Allen and Daniel Magee had a clear directive for the sale of our property, which they delivered with confidence, a sense of humour and ultimately an agreed outcome, which they and their team worked hard to achieve.

        Yours with thanks

        To Daniel,

        Thank you for all your hard work and commitment to the sale of my property at Diment Square. Without your determination I don't think we would have got to the end! I appreciate your hard work as this has been difficult  and sad decision to make due to my circumstance and reasons for selling.

        Many thanks and best wishes,

        no hesitation in recommending your branch
        Thank you, Daniel.

        We are, of course, very pleased that the sale of our house has finally been completed.

        Jenny and I would like to thank you for all the work you and your team have put in to secure the sale of our property. We have been delighted with the way that you have approached the sale from our initial meeting with you through to completion, including all the time you have given us to up-date on how matters have been progressing and the courteous way in which you have dealt with us when we have unexpectedly called in 'to touch base'.

        It has been obvious to us that the project has been managed, not just be you, but also by your team. Please pass on our thanks to both Steve and Kathryn for everything they have done. We are grateful to you all. We have no hesitation in recommending your branch of Symonds and Sampson very highly not only as an efficient and effective estate agency but as group of people with whom it has been a pleasure to do business.

        you did a great job.
        Good morning Daniel.

        With regard to the service received from S&S, as buyers we were very pleased that a deal was secured promptly and there were no twists and turns along the way. One hears some horror stories sometimes about vendors changing their minds, and less than helpful agents. Of course it helped that there was no chain and we were dealing with a deceased's estate so the legals were also very straight forward.

        We were also pleased that you enabled us to access the property whenever we wanted to prior to completion. Our dealings with everyone in the Bridport office were very pleasant and helpful, and overall we felt that from our side of the deal you did a great job.

        Best wishes

        professional and thorough
        We were really pleased by how professional and thorough you were through the stressful process of moving. We always felt listened to and any questions, queries or issues were always dealt with quickly. It was reassuring to know you were chasing things so much behind the scenes and were always communicated with well. I would recommend your services to others in the future.
