    Have you considered letting?
    It may be something you've not thought about or maybe you've been put off by watching too many episodes of Nightmare
    Tenants.

    Letting a property is a lot less stressful than you might think. We know - we've been doing it for a long time and we're extremely good at it.
  • paragraph

    Property to let? Choose Redrose
    Letting a property involves much more than just finding a tenant and there are many legal responsibilities you must adhere to - luckily we're here to help you understand these obligations inside out. From initial visit we will explain the process of getting your home ready to let out, provide an accurate rental valuation and guide you through the various lettings options we can offer.
  • paragraph

    What's involved?
    Whether you want to look after your own tenant or would prefer us to manage everything for you - we have a package to suit you. We ensure that whichever option you choose all prospective tenants undergo a rigorous fact checking process before we recommend them which will allow you to take out rental guarantee insurance.

    We will arrange tenancy agreements - which have been drafted by property lawyers, provide a full colour picture embedded property inventory, inspections, rent collection, repairs and end-of-tenancy resolution just to name a few.
  • paragraph

    Peace of mind
    Whilst your property is occupied our aim is to make sure you receive consistent rental income on time and your property is being looked after. You'll be glad to know that we're all a bit OCD when it comes to the properties we manage - this ensures that your property is well maintained and any problems are always rectified during or at the end of the tenancy - it's this simple recipe which is the key to a successful let.
  • paragraph

    Leading the way
    We love technology and we're always searching for ways to offer more to our landlords. Whichever option you choose, you will have access to your very own private property platform which, depending on which package you choose, will allow you to see everything in one place.

    Need a rental statement at 10pm? No problem, just login and download it from your PropertyFile. You'll also be able to see when your tenant has paid in real time, look at any maintenance costs, check when property inspections take place and download any safety certificates which relate to your property. Your tenant will also have access to their own PropertyFile that lets them report maintenance 24/7 and easily contact us in case of any emergencies.

    We PRIDE ourselves on excellent customer service from start to finish

    We can help to find you the perfect property quickly. You can visit us in our stylish branch or if you prefer, from the comfort of your own home, using our brand new website. You can find us at Zoopla, Rightmove, Prime Location and many, many other portals. Once you've found something you like, give us a call at our office and we will arrange a suitable day and time for you to view.

    Securing a property to rent

    Having found a suitable house or flat to rent, what happens next? We will ask you for an application fee as well as a holding deposit which is payable at the time of your application. REDROSE will then begin the administrative process of obtaining satisfactory references on your behalf.

    References

    Your prospective new landlord will be keen to make sure that you are a suitable tenant and that you have the ability to pay your rent, while also making sure that you have rented a property without any major problems in the past (if this is applicable). You will be asked to complete an application form which not only gives us the information that we require, but also your permission to deal with this part of the process on your behalf as quickly as possible.


    When you apply for the property, some or all of the following documents may be requested.


    • References from previous landlords - you may be asked to give the details of where you have lived within the last 3 years
    • A credit check - this will allow them to see if you have a good history of paying your bills
    • Your bank details - including bank name, account number and sort-code
    • Details of your employment - your employer, job title, payroll number, salary, previous employer, etc.

    Guarantors

    Sometimes referencing decisions will require you to provide a guarantor if for example your earnings are not quite enough to cover the rental payments or if you have only recently started in your job. Your guarantor will be required to undergo the checks as above to enable you to achieve the appropriate rating set by the referencing agency. They will be expected to pay the rental should there be any default during the tenancy. Do not worry if this situation does apply to you, it is not uncommon and we will be able to explain the details at every step of the way.

    First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

    Prior to moving into the property we will ask you to pay your final balance. This will be required as cleared funds prior to your check in day which will be agreed. You may wonder what cleared funds means? A balance in an account that is able to be withdrawn or used in financial transactions. Until funds are considered to be cleared funds they are considered to be pending.

    This usually takes 3 working days, that's why it's important to make sure you pay the final amount well before your check in day.

    Arranging your check in date

    When all of your references have come back ok we will call you to arrange a check in date. This check in date is when your tenancy will start and will form the dates for your tenancy agreement.

    Check in Day!

    So you've been through all of the checks and you've paid your final balance, what happens next?

    On the day we will meet you at the Office and go through all of the paperwork. We will take meter readings and write them down on your inventory as well as providing you will all of the contact numbers you will need in order to set up your utility bills.

    Tenancy deposit protection in summary

    All Landlords and agents are required by law to register and protect your deposit within a government-approved scheme on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. This means that your security deposit is protected

    The inventory

    The inventory is a detailed list of the contents and condition of the property at the point that you move into it. By both parties agreeing that the inventory is correct at the start of the tenancy, we minimise the risk of any disputes at the end of the tenancy. We recommend therefore that you thoroughly check the inventory before you sign it. We will always allow 7 days after checking into the property to comment on the condition. We also take pictures on the day so that we have before and after photos showing the condition.

    The Tenancy Agreement

    All relevant parties will be asked to sign this document which outlines the agreed responsibilities of the landlord and tenant.

    Please take time to read and understand the draft copy which will be given to you before the move in day usually by email.

    Insurance

    It's just as important to insure your belongings against theft or damage when you rent a property as it is when you own a property. We can offer a free quote for tenant content insurance, just ask a member of our Redrose team.

    During The Tenancy

    It is not uncommon for landlords and REDROSE to schedule in regular visits to the property in order to check that you are happy and that the property is being kept in good order. Usually these visits take place within the first three months of your tenancy followed by regular checks every 6 months thereafter.

    Renewing your tenancy

    So, you've come to the end of your first tenancy at the property. What do I do now?

    As long as we're happy for you to stay on at the property and the landlord has no other arrangements, your tenancy agreement will automatically go onto a Statutory Periodic Tenancy. This means that you are still following all of the original clauses set out in your agreement but are no longer tied in. If you wish to give notice at this stage you will only need to give us 1 months' notice on your payment date.

    Moving out

    Remember to ensure that the property is left in good condition when you leave to ensure that you get your full deposit back. If you're unsure then please refer to your copy of the checkout notes handed to you at the start and emailed prior to moving out.

    Final inventory check

    You'll have the opportunity to run through the inventory checklist on the day of departure. It's important that this job is done before you leave the property to avoid being accountable for any damage that occurs after you've left. If there is any damage, you should agree with the landlord or REDROSE the cost of repairing or replacing such items.

      A little bit about us!
      We love property. More precisely, we love selling and letting property to committed buyers and tenants.

      We know the area inside out. (You won't find us Googling your address.) We are open and honest about properties. (You'll never see us describe something as bijou.) We are friendly, helpful and professional at all times. (If you want to see a property after work, we'll do our best to accommodate.)

      Our office is located on Buckshaw Village - but don't let that make you think we can't sell elsewhere - in fact quite the opposite. We're the market leader on Buckshaw for a reason but also one of the leading agents in the wider area.
