paragraphAll About Our Lettings
We know our area and the local lettings market intimately, guaranteeing you a thorough and pro-active service.
We offer a flexible choice of services enabling you to stay involved in the letting process or to hand over all the arrangements of letting, rent collection and property management to us.
We understand that every property and every person is unique and we work hard to tailor our service and exceed your expectations.
It's vital to do the most thorough background checks possible. We offer a thorough insight into your potential tenant's background, taking a comprehensive approach which goes far beyond the more common simple credit check.
This gives you the reassurance that your tenants are who they say they are, work where they say they work and are able to make rental payments.
Our checks include:
- Complete credit check, including adverse history such as CCJs and bankruptcy
- Contacting current landlord or managing agent for a reference
- Background search on previous names, addresses and aliases
- Financial sanctions check
- Assurance that their bank account is genuine
- Employment check to establish your tenant's salary (and that their employment isn't likely to be terminated
For even greater confidence, we can offer a Rent Guarantee, assuring you of rental income even if the tenant fails to pay.
