WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY
  • paragraph

    EMBLEYS DELIVERS SO MUCH MORE THAN ANYONE WOULD DARE TO EXPECT FROM THIS INDUSTRY. IF A CLIENT SAYS 'THAT'LL DO', WE'VE FAILED... THEY ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO SAY, 'THAT'S PERFECT'.

    Julie Nelson - Managing Director

    WE OFTEN GET ASKED WHAT'S THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS?

    The answer: We never overpromise, we never oversell, we just go over and above to give our customers the best possible experience.

    Many that come to us are repeat customers, and in our industry that speaks volumes about our caring and considered approach. But being nice to our customers doesn't mean we're a soft touch when it comes to selling a property. In fact our team have built a fantastic reputation for achieving great sale prices, and in a faster timeframe than expected.

    1. Arrange a property rental valuation
    Once you've made an appointment, we'll come and chat to you about whether you'd like our managed service (this includes handling tenancy fees, carrying out an inventory, quarterly property inspections, managing repairs etc) or tenant find service (where we find you someone to rent your property to). Having carried out a full inspection of the property, we'll also advise on the recommended marketing figure and our fees.

    Once the reference checks have come back clear, we liaise with you and the tenant to agree a suitable move in day. At this stage we recommend a full inventory is carried out to ensure the property is maintained to the same standard it was left, especially if we're not managing the rental for you.

    5. Completion statement
    You will receive a completion statement prior to move in day. This will include a breakdown of costs and what will be due to you on the day of occupancy. If Tenant Find only this will be your first month's rent minus the fee due to us for finding you a tenant, the tenant will transfer you the damage deposit direct. For the fully managed service this will be with our agreed fees deducted, we will handle the damage deposit for you and place it in a government backed holding scheme.
  • paragraph

    6. Move in day
    For those using our tenant find service we ask you to drop two sets of keys into Embleys and we will sign three tenancy agreements (a copy for you, one for the tenant and one for us) on your behalf and then issue you with your copy once fully signed by all parties. If you don't meet the tenant, it's always nice to give them a courtesy call to introduce yourself and welcome them to their new home.

    7. Move in day

    For those using our managed service, you have the added peace of mind of knowing we are regularly checking your property against the inventory, are holding the tenant's damage deposit securely in a government-backed deposit protection scheme and that we have ensured the CP12 certificate (gas safety report), tenancy agreement and keys have been handed to the tenant. Furthermore, throughout the entire tenancy we'll sort maintenance issues, rental payments and property inspections - we're here to ensure everything runs smoothly so you don't have to worry.
