    We understand that letting your property, especially for the first time, can be a worrying experience.

    With this in mind our most important consideration is providing you the Landlord with the best possible service and the right tenant for your property.

    We never forget that the property is your most important asset and we can confidently assure you that by instructing us to act as your Letting and Management Agents your asset will be in professional and caring hands.

    A Personal Service

    Because we are a small family run business, we are able to offer a personal service, with attention to detail, whilst at the same time maintaining a high standard of competence and professionalism.

    Competitive Rates

    Our fees are competitive and may be open to negotiation dependent on the level of Service required. We are particularly committed to investment Landlords and savings can be made on the smallest of portfolios.

    Carefully Selected Tenants

    Drawn from a continually updated register, all prospective Tenants are thoroughly referenced, credit checked, and in some cases, we would also require a guarantor.

    Our aim is to find you the perfect property to suit your requirements with the minimum of hassle.
    Finding a property

    The first step is to contact us to provide brief details about yourself and about the accommodation you require. We then search our database for suitable properties for you to view. We also log your details in order for us to contact you as and when other properties become available that would be of interest to you. It is wise to start looking around a month or two before you wish to move, because the more attractive properties are viewed and reserved very quickly. Our tenancies are granted for a minimum term of 6 months, which may be renewed if all parties are in agreement.

    Please note that for your safety and peace of mind
    • All of our managed properties are Gas Safe certificated.
    • All of our managed properties are inspected for electrical safety, and furniture fire safety.
    • All Tenancy Deposits (bonds) are held in accordance with the Deposit Protection Regulations.
    Viewings

    Viewings will be arranged at times to suit you, including evenings and weekends, and you will invariably be accompanied by a member of our Team, who can offer advice and answer any questions you may have.

    Tenant charges

    For properties in England, the Tenant Fees Act 2019 means that in addition to rent, lettings agents can only charge tenants (or anyone acting on the tenant's behalf) the following permitted payments:

    Holding deposits (a maximum of 1 week's rent);

    Deposits (a maximum deposit of 5 weeks' rent for annual rent below £50,000, or 6 weeks' rent for annual rental of £50,000 and above);

    Payments to change a tenancy agreement eg. change of sharer (capped at £50 or, if higher, any reasonable costs);

    Payments associated with early termination of a tenancy (capped at the landlord's loss or the agent's reasonably incurred costs); Utilities, communication services (eg. telephone, broadband), TV licence and council tax;

    Interest payments for the late payment of rent (up to 3% above Bank of England's annual percentage rate);

    A charge of £15 per hour inc VAT plus the cost of any replacement of keys/fobs or change of locks will be applicable, should a tenant lock themselves out of the property and a Birchills representative is required to attend the property out of Birchills opening hours.

    Contractual damages in the event of the tenant's default of a tenancy agreement; and Any other permitted payments under the Tenant Fees Act 2019.

    References

    As a minimum we will require satisfactory references from your employer (or college), a previous or current landlord, and a credit reference report. We may also require a personal reference, and sometimes a guarantor. We may use the services of an independent referencing company to obtain and evaluate these references.

    Rents

    Rents are normally quoted calendar monthly, and payable monthly in advance. The tenant is usually also responsible for Council Tax, Water Rates, Gas, Electricity and Telephone costs. All rents are payable by bank standing order to our company bank account or your landlord's bank account.

    Deposit

    A security deposit of a minimum of one month's rental will normally be required. This deposit will be treated in accordance with the Tenancy Deposit Protection regulations, and you will be provided with the appropriate prescribed information and receive details regarding the scheme used. The deposit is held to cover damage, breakages, and any other liabilities under the terms of your tenancy agreement. Please note that under no circumstances can the deposit be used by the tenant to cover rent.

    Choose Birchills for a Stress-Free sale
    • paragraph

      These days it seems that almost every estate agent attempts to offer a unique set of services to sell your property, whether it's a free valuation, accompanied viewings or floor plans.

      At Birchills, we believe achieving a truly successful sale is based on so much more. No two sales are the same, and that's why we offer a bespoke approach for each of our clients. We want to help you sell your property the best way for you and believe that our flexible sales services can do just that.

      Communication is key, especially with something as complex as selling your property. We aim to keep our clients in the loop throughout the process, whilst continuing our commitment to a bespoke approach. Want to be updated at every stage? That's fine. Happy to leave us to get on with it? That's fine too.

      Your home will be covered online, with our in-house photographers ensuring your home is shown at its finest. Our digital marketing team blends data and analytics to ensure your home is on the right platform, targeted to the right people, at the right time.

      Our Virtual tours allow prospective buyers to click in and around your home any time of day, or night. Although this does not replace the need for a physical viewing, it does allow interested applicants the chance to revisit the property at their leisure. People start to visualise things in their head, where their own furniture would go and it also means they can look around as often as they like, in whatever order too.

      • Seller Testimonial

        Before going with Birchills my parents home had been on the market for nearly a whole year with three different local agents.I had a note through the door from Adam, Manager of Birchills. He was the first of any the agents to truly listen to us. But beyond being very professional we found him to be personable and extremely responsive. He sold our house in a few days, and we had moved within seven weeks of putting our house on the market with Adam. I would highly recommend that anyone seeking to sell their home with Birchills.
