    Landlords Guide

    Introduction -

    Letting your property can be a complicated process, one which many landlords have found to be a stressful and harrowing experience. We at ea2 aim to ensure that the letting and on going management of your property is dealt with in a professional and competent manner offering security and confidence.

    The notes contained herein are designed to answer some of the questions you may have. Alternatively we at ea2 are always available to offer advice and assistance for any queries that you may have.

    Fire and Safety Regulations -

    It is illegal to let a property containing items of furniture that do not comply with current safety requirements as laid out by The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 and The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 1993. Any items of furniture older then 1950 are exempt from the above. Most items purchased from 1993 should comply but we at ea2 are able to advise should you have any queries.

    Gas Safety Certificates -

    It is illegal to let a property without a current Gas Safety certificate. Under The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 it is the landlord's responsibility to ensure all gas installations and appliances are maintained in safe working order. The Gas Safety certificate lasts 12 months and must be renewed whilst there is a tenant in the property. We at ea2 can recommend and organize a Gas Safety Registered Engineer should you require one.

    Electrical Safety -

    The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 states that the landlord must ensure that all electrical appliances are safe and in good working order. A visual inspection of all electrical appliances should be carried out to ensure there are no obvious faults. We at ea2 can recommend and organize an EIC Registered Electrician to carry out an electrical test where upon the Landlord would receive a 12 month EIC certificate.

    Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detectors

    It is a legal requirement to fit smoke detectors in rental properties. Smoke detectors should be fitted per floor of the property being let. It is also a legal requirement to fit carbon monoxide detectors for all solid fuel heating and hot water systems.

    Insurance -

    It is the landlords responsibility to ensure that the property and contents included within the let are insured. Items brought into the property by the tenants remain the tenants responsibility to insure.

    General -

    It is the landlords responsibility to pay any ground rent and or service charges relating to the let property. The tenant is however responsible for all utility charges including gas, electricity, water, telephone and council tax.

    If the property being let is subject to finance and the terms of this agreement require consent then you should obtain this consent prior to any tenancy.

    Again if the property is leasehold and requires consent to sub-let then this consent should be obtained prior to any tenancy.

    We recommend that you as a landlord set up a mail re-direction agreement with the post office. This will avoid any potential loss of mail.

    We should be supplied with the relevant sets of keys depending on the number of tenants moving in. We can have additional keys cut on your behalf with your permission. (Note : Under the Management Service we will require an additional set of keys for our use).

    Tenancy Agreements -

    We at ea2 only let properties using a standard Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement as set under the Housing Act 1988, (As Amended 1996).

    Inventory -

    It is advisable to have an inventory of the furnishings and fittings of the property drawn up prior to any tenancy. This will confirm the furnishings and fittings and this condition prior to a tenants occupation. We use a professional inventory company to carry out all inventory report who are bonded by the AIIC, (Associated Independent Inventory Clerks). The landlord is responsible for the inventory report.

    Check In / Out -

    It is also advisable to carry out a check in when the tenant moves into the property. This will confirm the condition of the property on point of move in and then again when the tenant moves out. Again we use a professional inventory company to carry out all Check In / out reports who are bonded by the AIIC, (Associated Independent Inventory Clerks). The tenant is responsible for the Check In report whilst the landlord is responsible for the Check Out report.

    Finding a Tenant -

    We at ea2 will endeavour to find you the landlord a suitable tenant. Once we have agreed a monthly rent with you the landlord and the prospective tenant we will request 1 weeks rent from the prospective tenant to secure their interest and offer you some security. We will go through a series of formal procedures to verify a prospective tenant's suitability including referencing and credit checking. Please note that should the prospective tenant's references return un-satisfactory to the degree that would inhibit us in moving the tenant into the property then the prospective tenant would lose their deposit which would be forwarded to you the landlord in full. Ultimately the decision to accept a prospective tenant lies with you the landlord and should you wish to meet them prior to them moving in then we will of course arrange this.

    Deposit -

    We at ea2 request a damage deposit amounting to the equivalent of 6 weeks rent. In some instances a higher amount can be requested if the property being let has furnishings and fittings to warrant. The damage deposit is held against possible damage to furnishings and fittings during the duration of the tenancy period. The damage deposit is lodged with 'The Deposit Protection Service' as per legislation that was introduced in 2007 . Further information on this can be obtained from www.depositprotection.com

    EPC -

    From October 2008 the law applying to tenanted property changed and Landlords will have to provide Energy Performance Certificates for every property that they let.

    The EPC is being phased in across all residential, commercial and rented property. Only qualified domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) can carry out the inspection and once complete an A to G rating will be applied to the property with recommendations to further improve internal efficiency.

    The new legislation regarding Energy Performance Certification (EPC) for rental property requires properties to have an EPC after the 1st of October 2008.

    Tenants Guide

    The London and Docklands rental market has grown in the last 2 decades with many properties bought for investment and subsequently released to the market for rental both short term and long term. Due to the growth of the City and Docklands arena, an increase in job availability has seen an increase in many local and overseas tenants requiring homes. For this reason the rental market is invariably a busy place with properties being agreed in days of coming to market. We at ea2 will assist you in your move throughout the process and as such ensure the move goes through in a professional and efficient manner.

    Stage 1 - Registering to rent.

    You can register either by phone, email or in person at our office. In any case one of our experienced property consultants will be able to register your details and start the search for your ideal property. Our property consultants will search for a property for you, understanding your property requirements, i.e. number of bedrooms, parking requirement, outside space, etc will assist us in finding you a property. We will also require a budget to work with, based on your requirements. You will be alerted to new instructions that come to market, at which point our dedicated team will arrange a suitable time with yourself and the owner to conduct a viewing. All viewings will be accompanied by one of our property consultants.

    Stage 2 - Making an Offer

    Once you have found a property that meets your requirements then the next step would be to register your interest. An offer can be put forward verbally to one of our property consultants but ideally to save any potential confusion confirmation of your interest and offer should be confirmed by email. Your offer should include clarification of your employment, desired move in date, term of tenancy and any other stipulation as example, professional clean.

    Stage 3 - Offer Agreed

    Once your offer has been accepted a holding deposit will be required, (typically 1 week depending on landlord) to remove the property from the market and to confirm your interest. We will also require a deposit receipt form to be signed, this confirms the proposed transaction and any conditions of let as per the original offer. All offers are subject to satisfactory references.

    Stage 4 - The Process

    Once we have an agreement in principle from the landlord, a holding deposit received and signed deposit receipt form then we can move forward with references. These are carried out by a reputable referencing agency and are completed online. The tenancy agreement will also be drawn up and issued to both yourself and the landlord for approval. In the mean time we will ensure that any conditions of let are completed, ready for the proposed move in. Once the references have been returned satisfactory we will organise a detailed inventory and check in to co-inside with the move in date. The inventory / check in report will detail the condition of the property and meter reading will be taken. This is carried out by a reputable inventory company who will release the report to you once completed for your approval. Upon or prior to move in we will require the tenancy agreement signed by all parties listed, the remainder of any funds cleared in our clients account and copies of passports of all parties listed.

    Stage 5 - Move In

    On move in you will be able to collect the keys to your new home from the office along with a congratulations!

      Once you have found a property that meets your requirements then the next step would be to register your interest. An offer can be put forward verbally to one of our property consultants but ideally to save any potential confusion confirmation of your interest and offer should be confirmed by email. Your offer should include clarification of your position, be it first time buyer or other, amount of deposit, mortgage company/broker, solicitor if you have one, desired timeframe and any other stipulation as example, the inclusion of white goods, (although covered by the solicitors by way of the Fixtures and Fittings form).

      Stage 5 - Offer Agreed

      Once your offer is accepted we will notify all parties with a notification of sale. The appointed solicitors are now aware of the transaction. Your solicitor will then require forms to be completed and funds on account to start the process. Equally you must contact your mortgage company/broker to inform them that you have now found a property. They will require you to complete the necessary forms and funds in order to appoint a surveyor to carry out a valuation and survey.

      Stage 6 - The Process

      Once all parties have been instructed then the sales process begins. The time frame is normally 6-8 weeks for exchange of contracts and completion a minimum of 1 week there after. Your solicitor/licensed conveyancer will carry out the local authority searches and if leasehold review the management pack and service charge accounts supplied by the sellers solicitors. Once they have obtained all the relevant information they will be in a position to report to you and your mortgage company if applicable. Whilst the legal process is under way the mortgage company will instruct a surveyor to carry out a valuation and survey. The surveyor will arrange with us access to the property. Once the surveyor has carried out the survey they will issue to you for your perusal. Providing the report is satisfactory the mortgage company will issue the mortgage offer to you and the mortgage instructions to your solicitor. This document confirms that the mortgage company is happy to lend to you for this particular property subject to your solicitor/licensed conveyancer supplying clean searches/clean title and full filling all their enquiries. Once the mortgage offer is released and your solicitor/licensed conveyancer have completed all their enquiries you will then be in a position to exchange contracts. Your solicitor/licensed conveyancer will require you to sign the contract and supply funds with which to exchange contracts with.

      The transaction process can seem complicated and overwhelming at times. ea2 have employed a dedicated team to chase the transaction from offer agreed through to completion. We aim to both process the transaction in an efficient and speedy fashion and offer our services to both solicitors/licensed conveyancer on both sides in the assistance of the transaction. We will update you regularly with the process and ensure that you are kept up to date with time frames and outstanding enquiries.

      Stage 7 - Exchange of Contracts

      Exchange of contracts is carried out by your solicitor/licensed conveyancer with the sellers solicitor/licensed conveyance. Upon exchange of contracts the transaction becomes legally binding between you the buyer and the seller and a completion date is set. Mortgage lenders normally require a minimum of 1 week to draw the funds down for completion.

      Stage 8 - Completion

      Completion takes place once your solicitor/licensed conveyancer receives the funds from the mortgage lender, (if applicable) and any other funds required from you for completion and forwards these to the sellers solicitor/licensed conveyancer. Once the sellers solicitor/licensed conveyancer has received the funds then the property has effectively changed hands and you are now the legal owner. We will receive confirmation from the sellers solicitor/licensed conveyancer of completion and instructions to release keys to you. Keys can be collected from our office along with congratulations.

      • Seller Testimonial

        Outstanding Work by Ea2
        We sold a prime river flat in 6 weeks thanks to the outstanding work carried out by ea2. We had asked 9 agents in Wapping, Shad Thames and Tower Bridge to value our apartment on the same day at different time slots. Some were local and others had an international presence. We were surprised by the spread of valuations provided and the difference in fees. However, what influenced us the most was the personalities. We found ea2 to be friendly, honest, hard working and knowledgeable. The service they offered was by far the most competitive in terms of cost to us and the valuation of our property. This was in stark contrast to some of the individuals we met from the more well known river agents who in our view, have dominated and therefore controlled this part of Wapping for far too long. We have been Wapping residents for over ten years and feel that the service they provided was faultless. We have not hesitated to recommend to them other Cinnabar residents and anyone who asks us who we used.
      • Seller Testimonial

        Fantastic Local Knowledge
        Matthew and the team at ea2 did a fantastic job selling our flat for us. We included Matthew in our selling group because he was the selling agent when we bought the flat. His local knowledge is fantastic, and his experience and patience in getting through the contract process was invaluable. We also included bigger "brand name" agents in our selling group, and they were nowhere near Matthew's level of competency and professionalism"

        Professional & Approachable
        Ea2 are simply the very best estate agency that I have ever dealt with. The valuation they gave me was incredibly accurate - they know their market and what is an achievable price; they marketed the property very well and they achieved the asking price. Throughout the process they kept me completely up to date and acted as a point of contact for the solicitors involved and the purchaser and vendor. They, via their internal tracking process, acted to ensure that my exchange proceeded as expected and where we hit snags they chased those down and sorted them out. All of the staff I have dealt with from initial valuation to exchange have been professional and approachable, any queries I had were dealt with promptly and if they said they would ring me back they did. Following the offer I accepted, the sale was handled by Samantha Collins, who was quite simply outstanding in her professional, calm and approachable manner working between the parties involved to get the job done.

        Efficient and quick to respond
        Sam at EA2 is excellent. Very efficient and quick to respond to emails and texts. She has been so helpful in co-ordinating the sale of my London flat as I now live abroad. Would highly recommend her!
      • Seller Testimonial

        Highly recommend this agent
        Ea2, Wapping based Estate Agent has done a wonderful job. My property to sell was shared ownership flat so there are some more complication than the others. For start, they found a buyer very quickly -- after series of viewings -- and started a process immediately. Since they have dealt with shared ownership properties in past they has all knowledge and methods to collect documents, information without no delays. Also coordination with Solicitors in both side was seamless to make sure everything went smoothly. Selling / buying properties are very stressful business but Ea2 takes so much pressure from the seller / buyer so I highly recommend the agent.

        Managed Seamlessly and professionally
        This is the 2nd time that we have used Ea2 to sell our property. On both occasions the sale has been managed seamlessly & professionally, ensuring very quick sales at the right price. A great team - highly recommend
      • Seller Testimonial

        exceptional agency
        EA2 is an exceptional agency run by the brilliant Sam Collins who faultlessly got our sale through despite having to deal with a psychotic solicitor in Newcastle and many other problems that would have floored most agents. I would recommend her to anyone moving house in London, the South Pole or the Moon

         in my opinion there is no one better to work with
        I have had the pleasure yes pleasure of being looked after by Matt , Barry and the team for many years both when buying the property, Renting the property and now selling the property. I can honestly say that in my opinion there is no one better to work with than these " guys ". What distinguishes them is not just that they are supremely professional in buying and selling but that they genuinely care during the rental period by resolving all problems and obstacles to ensure their clients best interests are upheld and that they are happy . As a buyer , renter and seller I have experienced every aspect of their services and quite frankly having dealt with some of their competitors , their should be only one choice Ea2. They leave the larger agents behind by miles on personal service. What more can you ask for than to articulate the authority you give to your agent and never have to worry again . CONGRATULATIONS MATT CONGRATULATIONS BARRY YOU DESERVE TO BE WINNERS.

        great with giving feedback
        We went with EA2 because they seemed to really understand and know our area, and they were so lovely to deal with (more affordable and much nicer that some of the bigger agents we were speaking to). They were great with giving feedback throughout the process -and it was so nice to deal with genuinely decent people at what can be a very stressful time. We trusted their opinion throughout. I only have one suggestion that could have made the experience better - as first time sellers I think they over-estimated how much we understood about selling/changes to the market and I think they could have gotten away with being a bit bossier with us on the occasions we were making bad choices. They did work this out in the end and we got a good price in what was a deteriorating market. But to summarise I would definitely recommend them if you're looking to sell - especially in the Wapping/Stepney/Limehouse area

        both Sam and Scott went that extra mile
        I couldn't have chosen a better Estate Agent to sell my property. From start to completion both Sam and Scott went that extra mile to make sure all went smoothly. I cant recommend Ea2 highly enough for their excellent service. Patricia.

        Sam can make the impossibles possible
        My husband and I can't thank Sam enough for helping us to sell our flat.Sam has been very professional, warm and punctual all the way through. Sam can make the impossibles possible and delivered more than what we asked for. Sam and ea2, we are happy with your service and a big thanks for helping us to sell our flat. :)
      • Seller Testimonial

        I feel lucky to have chosen them
        Proof that agents can have very big hearts as well as brains and expertise. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend EA2 to anyone thinking of selling a property. They know their business inside out and are completely dedicated, never tiring to get to the bottom of things, keeping calm and professional whilst still being very approachable on all matters. I feel lucky to have chosen them. Thank you EA2

        they play a key role in keeping the process going
        Once again I've been very happy with Ea2's service. Their advice led to a very quick response when we put the house on the market. Then their role in keeping the ball rolling when the process slows down or hiccoughs was invaluable. Because they are so approachable they play a key role in keeping the process moving forward & relieving stress. I would certainly be happy to use them again
      • Seller Testimonial

        Ea2 were large enough to provide a full strength sales service yet still small enough to be flexible and not too 'corporate'. Each member of the team provided lots of value and was critical to the overall success of the sale. They gave a much fuller valuation than another well known brand estate agent but it ultimately turned out to be realistic as we had a number of offers near the asking price. They were competitive on commission and didn't insist on tying me into an unnecessarily long agency contract. In addition to this, the factor that made up my mind to appoint Ea2 to sell my property was the effort and genuine interest their valuer seemed to put into his valuation of my property. The only niggle was that I would have liked more ongoing communication about viewings and about each staff member's exact role in the process. Other than that, I can't really complain. They got me a solid market price, were pleasant to deal with and kept going and going until they achieved a sale

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Would recommend them by far, over any other agent
        I was recently scouring the market for a Buy to Let property in East London. I was recommended ea2 by a friend of mine who had recently purchased and let his property portfolio through ea2. The guys were extremely helpful, acting for my best interests. Most estate agents seem out for themselves, ea2 were different and I trusted them instinctively. My instincts were correct, not only did I buy an amazing property through them, they also recommended a refurb company who have been excellent, and they've rented the property out for me extremely quickly I feel as if the price I paid for the property was more than fair, something quite rare in London at the moment. The guys at ea2 were more than helpful through the entire process, always calling me to update me rather than me having to chase them. A refreshing change and I'm already on their books for my next property, I would recommend them by far, over any other estate agent, especially in the area of Wapping.

        Sam & her team are a rare find
        Sam and her team are a rare find. They weren't even my estate agent, I was buying a property from their client! But I was so impressed with all my interactions with them that I asked how I could leave them a glowing review. Seriously, such lovely warm professionals.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        100 percent reliable
        Sam is one of a kind. A lovely woman but also incredibly smart and energetic and full of good ideas. 100 percent reliable. This is a woman you can trust. Absolute integrity and always goes the extra 10 miles.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Above and beyond
        Sam Collins has been outstanding. She has gone above and beyond to chase the various parties so that we could exchange in a more reasonable timescale. Scott Ackerman also deserves a mention for his ability to take my requirements and take me around a number of properties, refining as I went

        Incredibly Knowledgeable
        Sam from EA2 was wonderful. Amazingly helpful, replying quickly and at all times of the night and day. She was incredibly knowledgeable of the local area - we were actually viewing a completely different property with her, but once she learnt more about us and our requirements she showed us straight to the perfect property! Cant recommend her strongly enough.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Tremendous Job
        Sam at Ea2 did a tremendous job in ensuring every party involved was delivering what they were supposed to be delivering. Sam was even key to parts of the chain that she had no involvement in. It is mainly thanks to her that we completed on the agreed date. We cant recommend her enough, she is VERY efficient and always available. Sam will ensure she gets her (and everyone elses) job done!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        first class service

      • Buyer Testimonial

        All in all I would recommend EA2
        I recently bought a property through EA2 and the service I received was excellent from start to finish. They weren't interested in the 'hard sell' like other estate agents, and instead were focused on finding the right property for me. Other estate agents insisted on calling me to show properties that did not meet my requirements where as the EA2 kept me posted on things that they knew would be right for me based on my requirements. Of the team: Arabella was friendly, enthusiastic and flexible working around my availability. She even called me while she was on leave, Sam was excellent from start to finish and went above and beyond anything I would expect from an estate agent. She was professional, quick to communicate and she even moved her leave to make sure we exchanged when we needed to, All in all I would recommend EA2!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        really appreciated their help
        Sam and Scott from Ea2 Ltd were fantastic to deal with from start to finish. I think I would still be waiting to exchange and complete if it wasn't for Sam pushing both solicitors for me!. I really appreciated their help and I would definitely recommend their agency to any future buyers
      • Buyer Testimonial

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Buying my dream flat was easy
        I can't thank the team at Ea2 enough. I had always put off buying a property in London because I was fearful of going into battle in an aggressive market. But it never once felt like a war. Contrary to what most people believe about estate agents and who they are acting for, I really felt like Sam and the team were acting with integrity for both myself and the vendor. Buying what has proven to be my dream flat was easy, straightforward and relatively stress-free. I think Ea2 played a large part in that
      • Buyer Testimonial

        very responsive and efficient
        I completed on my purchase of a flat in Wapping yesterday and from start to finish found the team at Ea2 in Wapping very responsive and efficient. They were on top of things and went the extra mile - not only in staying in touch and being available to answer queries about the process throughout but also in making sure that there were no surprises on the day of completion and that the flat was in tip top shape. I was very pleased
