    LETTING SERVICES

    Letting your property is a serious business, and research suggests that over a period of time, residential property is one of the safest and best performing investments. Not only does it provide an excellent income, but also a significant capital gain in the process. It is, therefore, vitally important that the Landlord chooses a service that fulfils all their requirements.

    When considering the levels of service offered by Kingswood, you should ask yourself:

    How much time can I afford to spend in the day-to-day management of my property?

    At Kingswood we appreciate that every Landlord is different, some may have a large portfolio and some will be first time investors. As a result, we have developed three levels of Lettings Services, taking into account the different levels of involvement and risk.




    LET ONLY

    The Let Only service is ideal for Landlords who already manage their portfolio and are highly experienced in dealing with the day-to-day management of their properties.

    FULL MANAGEMENT

    The Full Management service is for landlords who would like Kingswood to deal with the day to day management of their property. It is the hassle-free option if you want Kingswood to take complete control of renting your property. The package is also suited to Landlords who prefer to have little involvement in the day-to-day management of their portfolio, or who are too busy with other aspects of their life.

    RENT GUARANTEED

    The Rent Guaranteed service is designed for Landlords who are seeking to reduce the risk on their investment and are looking for quick dividends. The Kingswood Rent Gauranteed Scheme offers an annual income with little or no involvement from the Landlord.

  • paragraph

    OVERSEAS LANDLORDS

    Kingswood understands that not all landlords are UK based hence they rely and entrust Kingswood with their properties. We from the off know exactly what kind of service an overseas landlord requires and Kingswood caters from their needs.

    We have an understanding of what we can and can not undertake without prior consent but we still always communicate with landlords abroad and providing them with updates and feedback whether phone based or via email.

    Not only do we manage the property the same ways as UK based landlords, overseas landlords receive the exact same level or professionalism and care, just because they are not in front of us doesn't mean we can be more relaxed.

    With more and more landlords either investing in our local area from aboard or landlords holidaying or moving aboard we can still communicate and give them a service they will be please with.

  • paragraph

    NON RESIDENT LANDLORDS

    The Non-Resident Landlords (NRL) Scheme is a scheme for taxing the UK rental income of non-resident landlords.

    The scheme requires UK letting agents to deduct basic rate tax from any rent they collect for non-resident landlords. If non-resident landlords don't have UK letting agents acting for them, and the rent is more than £100 a week, their tenants must deduct the tax. When working out the amount to tax the letting agent/tenant can take off deductible expenses.

    Letting agents and/or tenants don't have to deduct tax if HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) tells them not to HMRC will tell an agent/tenant not to deduct tax if non-resident landlords have successfully applied for approval to receive rents with no tax deducted. But even though the rent may be paid with no tax deducted, it remains liable to UK tax. So non-resident landlords must include it in any tax return HMRC sends them.

    Non-resident landlords who are eligible can apply at any time for approval to receive their UK rental income with no tax deducted. This includes applying before they have left the UK or before the letting has started.

    Applications should be made by:

    • an individual NRL1 (PDF) notes are incorporated
    • a company NRL2 (PDF) notes are incorporated
    • a trust NRL3 (PDF) see also NRL3 Notes (PDF)
    • letter for sovereign immunes

    Completed NRL applications should be sent to:
    HMRC Personal Tax International
    NRL Scheme Compliance S0708
    PO Box 203
    Bootle
    L69 9AP

    For individuals whose tax affairs are dealt with Public Departments 1 office the NRL1 should be sent to:

    HM Revenue & Customs
    Public Departments 1
    Ty Glas Road
    Llanishen
    Cardiff
    CF14 5XZ

    Please note we must have written consent including a landlord reference number from HMRC prior to beginning an initial tenancy.

      jacqui george: I want to say a very special thank you to Scott at Kingswood. I could not have wished for a more professional and enthusiastic agent to sell my property. Nothing was too much trouble and right from our very first meeting I felt completely at ease and very confident that he would sell my property successfully. He really did go the extra mile and has far exceeded my expectations. His polite and friendly manner towards everybody that came to look at my house was impeccable and what I was particularly impressed with was how he described special features in each room. I have no hesitation in recommending Kingswood Properties, thank you again.

They were professional, friendly and really easy to deal with. Right from the start Chris dealt with our enquiry quickly and communication was brilliant throughout. Our photos and advert were online within a day! Scott conducted all of our viewings ensuring they were convenient, everyone adhered to the Covid guidelines and all appointments were made in blocks so we didn't have to stay in all day.

      Certificates
      EPC

      Since 6 April 2008, an energy performance certificate has been required on rented property in England and Wales. You must have a valid EPC priori to marketing the property, the prospective landlord and agent (if there is an agent) must use all reasonable efforts to secure that a valid energy performance certificate is obtained for the building before the end of a period of 7 days starting with the day on which the building was first put on the market.

      In relation to a dwelling and a failure to commission before marketing or make available / give an EPC to a tenant, the penalty is £200.00. Where the building is not a dwelling (commercial buildings) the penalty is calculated by the formula found in regulation 38 with a minimum of £500 and maximum of £5000.

      We at Kingswood, have fully trained staff that carry out the EPC for you, so please let one of our property specialist know if your property requires one and we would be more than happy to help.

      The cost for an EPC is £60.00


      GAS SAFETIES

      As a landlord, you are legally responsible for the safety of your tenants in relation to gas safety. By law you must:

      • Repair and maintain gas pipework, flues and appliances in safe condition
      • Ensure an annual gas safety check on each appliance and flue
      • Keep a record of each safety check

      You should also keep your tenants informed about their responsibilities while they are staying in your property

      ELECTRICAL SAFETY

      Landlords - your electrical safety obligations

      Electrical Safety First has found that landlords are exposing themselves to significant financial risks, from fines and invalidated insurance, through not acting on their electrical safety obligations.

      Landlords are also putting millions of UK private tenants at risk of serious accident or fire. We have clarified your obligations for electrical safety in rental properties to help you keep your tenants safe.

      Your responsibilities as a landlord

      Landlords are required by law to ensure:

      • That the electrical installation in a rented property is safe when tenants move in and maintained in a safe condition throughout its duration.
      • That a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) has a periodic inspection carried out on the property every five years.
      • If your property is not an HMO, you are not legally obliged to do this. However, we recommend that a periodic inspection and test is carried out by a registered electrician on your rental properties at least every five years.
      • That any appliance provided is safe and has at least the CE marking (which is the manufacturer's claim that it meets all the requirements of European law).
      • To meet these requirements a landlord will need to regularly carry out basic safety checks to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working.

      We can arrange for a NIE Electrical safety check check for your property at a cost of £120.00. Speak to one of our property specialists.

Nothing was too much trouble and right from our very first meeting I felt completely at ease and very confident that he would sell my property successfully. He really did go the extra mile and has far exceeded my expectations. His polite and friendly manner towards everybody that came to look at my house was impeccable and what I was particularly impressed with was how he described special features in each room.

An extremely quick turn around when it came to processing references and credit checks again keeping us fully updated along the way.We where given dates to expect to move in as soon as the landlord was happy with our application and I more than happy to say they've lived up to that! Awesome.This is technically my first home, and certainly my first time using an estate agent. Overjoyed with the simplicity and transparency of the whole process.
