    How We Help
    image cannot be displayed

    We deal with distinctive apartments and houses in and around the Georgian city of Bath, and the market town of Bradford on Avon.

    • Accompanied viewings and regular feedback.
    • Full reference checks and deposit protection scheme.
    • Management service available on request.
    • Full marketing package including properties listed on all the major websites.
    • Support service for all landlords and tenants.
  • paragraph

    In more detail...

    Cobb Farr Residential offer a tenant find service for a one off fee of 75% plus VAT of the first month's rent at the commencement of the tenancy. This fee includes a gold back up service which lasts the length of the contract whereby we offer help and assistance to landlords and tenants alike.

    We are happy, within office hours, to assist in the organization of tradesmen, liaise with landlord/tenant on any matter and organize quotes for work needed etc. acting upon the landlord's instruction. 

    This service comes within the fee we charge at the beginning of the tenancy. The only other fee you would be charged would be if the contract is renewed - there would be a fee of £75 plus VAT charged to the landlord and the same to the tenant.

    We do not provide inventories or check out/check in but can organize these with a professional company on your behalf should you so wish. We would highly recommend that you have an inventory carried out as this would be very important in the unlikely event you have to go to arbitration at the end of the contract. Of course, you can do your own inventory but you would be advised to add video or photographic evidence to your inventory.

    The fee we charge to the tenant is very competitive compared to other letting agents. It is a one off fee with no hidden charges.

    Key steps

    There are a number of key steps you should follow in order to secure your preferred property:

  • paragraph

    1. Holding deposit. Pay a holding deposit fee of £300/500 (depending on the rental value of the property). This will reserve the property with no further viewings. The £300/£500 will form part of the 1 ½ month damages deposit. Payment is easy, either call into the office, pay over the phone or transfer by BACS. Please note fees are non-refundable in the event of failed references or if you decide not to proceed.
    2. References. All tenants will be expected to pass our referencing process before a tenancy agreement can be created together with one proof of address and one photographic identification.
    3. Tenancy agreement. Once the positive references are received the tenancy agreement will be drafted and emailed/posted to all the parties to sign. This document sets out the terms of the tenancy, and highlights the responsibilities of both landlord and tenant.
    4. Final payment. Prior to the date of occupation the balance (one month's rent and remainder deposit together with our fee) is to be paid either by BACS or debit/credit card. A tenancy deposit is held either by COBB FARR or the Landlord against dilapidations to the property or its contents, loss of rent or other unexpected costs. This deposit is protected by 'MY DEPOSITS', a Government authorised deposit protection scheme for landlords, letting agents and tenants. The tenancy deposit is usually equivalent to one and a half's month's rent and is returnable at the expiration of the tenancy, subject to a final inspection and full inventory check.
    5. Moving in. We will arrange to meet you at a suitable time to complete the move-in process and hand the keys over to you.
    6. Renewal of the tenancy agreement. After your initial fixed term tenancy agreement expires and if you wish to renew your contract there will be a fee payable of £75.00 plus VAT to Cobb Farr.

      The advice and guidance we offer at Cobb Farr's Bath office is based not only on our deep understanding but also our genuine love and enthusiasm for the city.

      Bath is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the perfect showcase for the world-renowned Roman Baths, as well as the stunning Royal Crescent, the Circus (just a stone's throw away from our office) and the magnificent Bath Abbey.

      This doesn't mean there isn't room for new features. The ultra-modern and much visited Thermae Bath Spa pushes its way up through the city centre rooftops, while the new Southgate centre offers a rewarding shopping experience as can be found in London, just 90 minutes away by train.

      Schools and Universities

      Cobb Farr and King Edward's School are delighted to announce their new partnership, as Cobb Farr takes up the title of 'Sponsor of Sport at King Edward's School, Bath'.

      The University of Bath is much renowned for its centre of sporting excellence and is based at Claverton Down.
