If acceptable, we will then draw up an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, which is always a minimum of 6 months and provide a standing order for tenants to set up future rent payments. We will ensure all certificates are in place such as the Gas Safety Certificate and carry out the signing of all documents before releasing keys.

Marketing your property
Once we have received your instructions including your completed paperwork, and when the photos are ready we will prepare all the details and brochures for you to approve. With a click of a button we can activate the property on our system and commence with the marketing. Our website updates within 24 hours so it will be live on the internet the following day. It will also be live on all the national portals that we are linked to such as Rightmove with a premium listing, the Guild of Property
Professionals and also via social media. We will use videoettes to showcase your property, and these look great online too. In addition we have added OnTheMarket to our online presence, which is a fantastic and easy to use portal for anyone looking to rent.
As soon as we have activated the details on the system we can begin to contact all potential clients we have registered on our database, using our state of the art Letting Agent based software to generate activity and early viewings. We will keep you regularly updated on the progress with the marketing, giving regular feedback from each client who views
