Lettings/Property Management Services with Cobbles
  • paragraph

    At Cobbles Letting Agents in Guildford, we understand that no two landlords are the same, with different financial and lifestyle situations, your needs and concerns will change. It's for this reason we've devised three core service options where we can be involved as much or as little as you'd like - either way, a detailed and efficient landlord support service is guaranteed.
  • paragraph

    Introduction Only Service

    This service includes.

    • Extensive advertising and preparation of details of the property
    • Accompanying all prospective tenants viewing the property
    • Full references taken on any prospective tenants by a credit reference agency
    • Preparation of legal documentation for signature by all parties
    • Collecting and protecting the tenants deposit in a registered deposit scheme
  • paragraph

    Rent Collection Service

    This service has all the benefits of our Introduction Only Service but also provides a fully inclusive and comprehensive Rent Collection Service.

    In addition to the Introduction Let Only Service, we arrange for a standing order to be set up so the Tenant can send rent directly to us. It allows us to keep on top of the rental payments and issue any late payment letters if the rent isn't paid on time. Rent will be sent to you once we are in receipt of cleared funds, less our agreed fees and expenses, into your nominated account.

    Many clients choose this service to help them maintain a healthy cash flow - we offer to collect our commission fees on a monthly basis rather than you having to pay a one-off fee at the beginning of each tenancy.

  • paragraph

    Full Management Service

    Many of our clients choose this service because it takes the pressure of running a property out of their hands and in simple terms, we become the landlord. All dealings are completed through our dedicated property management department. Our fully managed service is especially good for the novice, the overseas landlord or the landlord who does not want the hassle than can be caused with tenants.

    In addition to the introduction only service we will:

    • Provide a dedicated phone line for landlords
    • Collect rent and produce monthly statements of account
    • Inspect the property every six months and produce a full report to Landlords
    • Deal with all property maintenance issues using local approved contractors
    • Serve all relevant legal notices and advise on rental increases
    • Provide estimates for repairs and refurbishment
    • Arrange all legal checks and certificates
    • Deal with insurance claims
    • Deal with extensions, renewals of tenancy agreements and re-marketing the property
    • Look after the day to day running of the property and ensure that all queries and issues are dealt with

    Selling with Cobbles Estate Agents in Guildford
    • paragraph

      The Sales Process

      We understand that selling your home is a big decision to make and we want you to be as informed as possible to make the whole process smooth and hassle free. So we have put together a short guide of each major step in selling your property with Cobbles.

    • paragraph

      1 - We Conduct Our Valuation

      If you are considering selling your property, the first thing you need to do is have a valuation of your property. Cobbles offer free, no-obligation appointments with a member of our knowledgable team. We have huge amounts of experience in valuing properties in the area, and will give you our honest and informed advice on what your property is worth. We are against 'over-inflating' the valuation of your home to win your business, this is unhelpful to you and can often damage your chances of achieving the best price possible.

    • paragraph

      2 - Marketing
      Once you have confirmed that you would like Cobbles to sell your home we will immediately start work on our marketing package. We have put together a comprehensive marketing package to ensure that your property is being advertised at its full potential. This is something that we cover the cost of and will not charge you any extra. It includes:
    • paragraph

      3 - Photographs, Floor Plan & Advertising

      Giving the potential client a good idea of what your property looks like before they view is very important and first impressions count. That's why we spend a great deal of time capturing your home and producing striking photographs to show your property in its best light. We don't use fish eye lenses to create an unrealistic portrayal of your house, this will only disappoint the potential buyers when they walk through your door. If it isn't a sunny day when we first visit we will keep coming back until we get the perfect front image.


      A floor plan is one of the most important pieces of information to present when marketing a property. It is the first detail that a potential buyer, leaser or investor will carefully study. A floor plan is an essential property marketing tool, which gives a good idea of space offered and the ability to plan room layouts. We will provide a detailed and accurate floor plan for marketing purposes.


      To achieve the best possible price for your property, it needs to be marketed to the broadest market possible. Through Cobbles, your property will be advertised on all major portals, including Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location, as well as our own website. It will also be displayed in our office window, that is in a prominent location, with many passers by. Most importantly, we will immediately reach out to our current database of qualified buyers who will be ready to view your home as soon as you are ready.

    • paragraph

      4 - Viewings
      All viewings will be carried out by a member of the team at Cobbles at times that suit you. On the occasions that we receive constructive feedback at the time of the viewing, we will update you the same day. On most other occasions we will make contact with the prospective buyer the next day once they have had time to consider it and will pass on to you all comments and considerations.
    • paragraph

      5 - Offers
      Any offers received are promptly verbally notified and then followed up in writing to you. Our competent team will negotiate between you and your prospective buyers in order that we may select the best applicant for your needs. We will inform you of the position of the buyers and liaise with you until an acceptable offer has been agreed.
    • paragraph

      6 - Agreed Sale & Conveyancing

      Once you have accepted an offer that you are happy with, if not already done so, you will need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor. We can happily make recommendations of local firms that we have experience in dealing with.

      The solicitors will then write to all parties and the buyers will instruct a surveyor to conduct a survey of your property (the "agreed sale" is subject to the contract and any survey) and the buyers' mortgage offer (if required) will also be subject to the results of the survey.

      The sellers' solicitors will request the title deeds from the lender (if appropriate) or yourselves as the seller and a Fixtures and Fittings form must be completed at this stage.

      The solicitors then draw up the Draft Contract, which sets of the Terms of the Sale and sends it to the buyers' solicitor together with all relevant documents. Any enquiries will then be raised, the Title Deeds and Lease (if applicable) will be checked and local searches carried out.

    • paragraph

      7 - Exchange & Completion
      Once the draft contracts have been approved, it can be signed by both parties. When both solicitors have confirmed that all legal work is completed and funds are in place all parties can mutually agree a Completion date and then Exchange of Contracts can take place.

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Cobbles really made a difference!
        Cobbles really made a difference to our house buying process. Every time i called the office , it was like they were genuinely pleased to help. They always dealt with all enquiries urgently. They always were informative with updates. They treated me the buyer with as much favour as the seller. This level of professionalism, friendliness & personable approach is rare in our experience with agents.My best memory about the whole transaction was when the owner of Cobbles, Eugene was genuinely chuffed for me (as a first time buyer) that my offer was accepted by our sellers.
        - Dave & Soo
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Really friendly and approachable team
        Really friendly and approachable team. They also went the extra mile in stopping by once we'd moved in and couldn't unlock the rear doors to the house. Eugene was quick to provide local knowledge and much needed reassurance as we neared exchange time but without being pushy or overbearing.The entire process was painfree and levels of communication and updates were spot on.
