    Landlords you're in safe hands.

    We are so confident in the level of our checks that we will guarantee to remove the tenant from your property if they fail to pay their rent.

    · We will check for any adverse credit history such as, bankruptcy, CCJs and court decrees and also check if there's any previous names and addresses which they haven't disclosed

    · We will check whether there is any undisclosed credit history which is linked to their current and most recent homes & that the banking details provided are for a genuine bank account. We check against up to three credit agencies

    · We will conduct a check against HomeLet's own Default Database - this may indicate whether your tenant has not been able to pay their rent in the past & conduct a Financial Sanctions check, it is important to make sure that your tenant isn't registered to any of the Government's Asset Freezing lists - because this could mean they are unable to pay their rent in the future

    · We will contact the previous Landlord or Managing Agent who will need to verify the tenants have always paid their rent on time, taken good care of the property and not had a deposit withheld for dilapidations

    · We will also speak to their employer to check the tenant is being paid what they have told us and that there is no reason their employment will be terminated any time soon

    And there's more...

    · We can also reference Overseas Guarantors, perfect for those tenants with parents or relatives abroad

    · Plus, for the first year of the tenancy we will also guarantee to remove the tenant from your property if they fail to pay their rent - great news!

    • Landlord Testimonial

      excellent at continually communicating
      We have recently instructed Strakers to find us a new tenant on the above property. The Strakers  team are very professional and listen & then delivers on the client's request. They have been excellent at continually communicating with me via email/text something which is extremely important to me. I would like to say that they have taken service to one that I was previously satisfied with to one that I would now strongly recommend to others.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      thanks for your professionalism
      Ref: Bude Road, 
        Just want to say thanks for your professionalism throughout the tenancy - you have been excellent. I am not known for making favorable comments about estate agents and their practices in general, nor for taking the time to do it - so you can take that as very high praise! Regards Peter
    • Landlord Testimonial

      found good tenants quickly
      Ref: Marshfield Road 
      We have been using Strakers for some years now and are very satisfied with the service we receive. When we purchased our home the staff were helpful, accessible and dealt with the process professionally. Then when we moved abroad we naturally turned to them as our letting agents. Strakers have always kept us up to date with viewings, found good tenants quickly and helped with all the paperwork. They provide great value for money and are a pleasure to deal with.

      • Seller Testimonial

        well done on selling this property
        I know you acted for Charles Church properties and not me but wanted to say well done on selling this property. 2 Swindon agents, 36 weeks and no sale.Straker's 5 weeks and property sold. You were very particular with getting the right photos at the right time of day and other details correct. This compares with another agent who took photos from a third agent rather than take their own photos. So well done and thank you. All the best, Mr R, Swindon
