    Finding a property to rent
    When looking for the ideal property to rent you may want to consider the following:
    • Your budget, how much would you like to pay per month? Remember to budget for utilities and council tax.
    • How long do you need to rent the property for? Will it be long term or a short term stop gap? When do you need to move in?
    • Is the garden suitable and who will be responsible for the maintenance of the garden?
    • Does the size of the property suit your requirements? If you are looking for an unfurnished property will your furniture fit?
    • Does the property have broadband, good mobile phone reception for your network, cable/satellite dish, adequate sockets, telephone and TV aerial points?
    • Energy Efficiency: Landlords are now required to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). It contains information about a property's energy use and typical energy costs and recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money. An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to E.
    • How to reduce energy use and save money. An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to E.
  • paragraph

    Securing a Property

    The best properties tend to go quickly. Be prepared to provide the following information:

    • Photo identification (such as a driving licence or passport).
    • Evidence of your current address (such as a utility bill).
    • Deposit funds of five weeks rent.
    • Holding Deposit of one weeks rent (see conditions in our application form).
    • Be ready to sign a tenancy application form.
    • If you need a guarantor, get this set up in good time.
    • Referencing: criteria may include the following: We will contact any Landlord you have had within the last 3 years. Confirmation of earnings. 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.
    • Deposit: Once the full deposit is paid, the property is then secured. The deposit will be held by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS). The deposit is held against any non payment of rent or damages to the property over and above fair wear and tear.
    • Tenancy Agreement: A tenancy agreement is a contract between you and the landlord, setting out the terms and conditions of the tenancy and the rights and obligations the landlord and the tenant have to each other and the property.
    • Insurance: It is the job of the Landlord to insure the bricks and mortar of the property, but your Landlord won't insure your personal belongings.
  • paragraph

    Moving In

    Your keys will be available for you to collect at our local branch, and for you to sign the Schedule of Condition.

    Meter readings will be taken at the property at the commencement of your tenancy and we will as letting agents notify all utility providers. This does not include TV licence, telephone or broadband which is your responsibility.

  • paragraph

    Schedule of Condition and Inventory
    The Schedule of Condition and Inventory is the document which is used to accurately record the condition and contents of the property at the time of moving in. It will be used again when checking the property at the end of the tenancy. When you move into a property, you should either annotate the schedule of condition with any comments you feel necessary to record at that time, or write a comments sheet with your observations. The document must be checked carefully to minimise the risk of any disputes at the end of the tenancy.
  • paragraph

    Renewing Your Tenancy
    Staying

    If you decide to stay at the property and it is possible for you to do so, we will negotiate the terms of the extension with both you and the landlord.

    Moving Out
    • The Landlord may wish to terminate the tenancy, in which case we will serve the appropriate notice on their behalf.
    • If you wish to terminate the tenancy at the end of the fixed term, you will need to serve one calendar months notice to end on the same expiry day in the month.
    • The property will need to be cleaned to a standard commensurate with the condition of the property at the commencement of the tenancy.
    • The garden will need to be tidied and grass cut.
    • All personal belongings will need to be removed and keys returned to the agent, landlord or inventory clerk.
  • paragraph

    Your Responsibilities

    Your obligations are fully set out in your tenancy agreement but will usually include:

    1. Pay the rent
    2. Keep the property clean and tidy
    3. Don't change the fabric of the property without permission
    4. Abide by the Tenancy Agreement
    5. To behave in a tenant-like manner - i.e no nuisance, noise, disruptive behaviour etc.

    Buying Through Us
    • paragraph

      Initial contact with us will usually be via a website, over the phone or in person at one of our nine offices. You can continue to get up-to-date lists of available properties on an ad hoc basis but you may prefer to register with us. This will allow us to send you details of properties just as they come to the market or when prices are revised.

      Our applicant database is web-based and shared instantly across all eleven offices so that you need only sign-up once to be matched with any property that fits your requirements.

      You can register, update your details and requirements or de-register through this website. You will receive notification of new properties via e-mail and can download full colour particulars from your web portfolio.

      Alternatively, you can also register by contacting one of our offices where a member of staff will take your details and discuss the current market and properties available with you. We endeavour to get all staff to see the property but, where this has not been possible, someone who has seen it can ring you back.

      If any property is of interest please contact the relevant office to discuss it further and to make arrangements for a viewing.

      Once you make an offer it will be submitted in writing to the vendors. The staff will need to collect personal details from you, if not already known, such as the position of your own sale and availability of finance.

      We will advise you of the outcome of any offer. Once an offer is accepted, we will notify your solicitors at the same time as the vendors. Because agents can speak to both buyers' and sellers' solicitors we will keep in touch with you during the sale process with updates, up to the point at which contracts are exchanged .

      Following exchange of contracts we will liaise with you and the vendor about the hand over of keys at completion. This usually takes place in our office but with planning a member of staff may be able to meet you at the property.

        process dealt with like a 'breath of fresh air'
        'Thank you very much to all the staff at the Poundbury office, especially Peter Grout Smith for dealing with the sale of my mother's flat. Throughout the process all staff were professional, friendly and helpful and always kept us fully informed about viewings and feedback from potential buyers. The decision on guide price, sale negotiations and updates on progress were handled extremely well - you kept us better informed than our solicitors! The manner in which the whole process was dealt with was like a 'breath of fresh air' and I would definitely come back to you to deal with any future property sales.' I am not someone who normally writes reviews but I am extremely grateful to you for managing to sell the flat as quickly and efficiently as you did - particularly as we now have to deal with another flat and estate in Newcastle! Many thanks again for all your help. Best wishes Jane Taylor

         really appreciated your taking on board our views
        Dear Peter Thank you for your call yesterday to let us know that we have now completed on 16 Queen's Avenue. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the work you put into the sale of the house. As our previous two house sales had not been made through an estate agent, we were a little nervous about the process. We initially chose you because we did not get the notorious "estate agent sales-speak"! We felt you were seeing our house as our home and not just your commission, which was a welcome relief and definitely different from your competitors. We really appreciated your taking on board our views as to the price the house should go onto the market and the brochure was really lovely. As the process progressed and we struggled a little with our solicitor, your facilitation of the sale and your considerate assistance was professional and very well judged. At no time did we feel that we were anything other than valued clients and this undoubtedly helped us to feel really positive about selling our much loved home. Thank you for everything you and your colleagues did to help us happily move across to Bristol, where we are settling in fast and feeling very positive about our new life here. With warm wishes Jo and Justin B

        Hi Jon Just a note to say thank you to you and your colleagues for sorting out the deal! I doubt a sale has ever had to include an explanation of the constituent parts of outside render - hopefully it never will again!! 

         Anne & I truly appreciate your time, patience and efforts to get it through

        I valued the way you kept me informed of progress
        Dear Peter

         Thank you for the way you handled the sale of number 3. As usual I was proved right to choose Symonds and Sampson as our agent. Your advice to apply for the search as soon as we put the house on the market, in the light of the delays that are being experienced in West Dorset, speeded up the sale by at least 2 months.

         I also appreciated you conducting most of the viewings personally. I valued the way you kept me informed of progress throughout the sale process, particularly once the conveyancing was underway. Please pass on my thanks to other members of your team who assisted with the sale. Everyone was unfailingly professional and helpful.

        Kind regards

        At all times the team were highly professional.
         I can highly recommend Jon Summers and all the team at Symonds and Sampson when it comes to selling property. Out of 3 agents I had value my property, Symonds and Sampson came in with the highest valuation by some way and delivered on that valuation. All through the process there was a steady stream of viewers and a reinvigoration of marketing where required. At all times the team were highly professional. Thanks again for your assistance.

        Can't recommend them highly enough.

        I couldn't be happier with Symonds & Sampson. Peter and Hilary throughout the entire process were very professional. They kept me up to date at every stage with the sale of my mum's bungalow. Whether it was by e mail, text or phone calls. I would give 10 out of 10 for their hard work. Can't recommend them highly enough.

        Very likeable and friendly team

        "The Symonds and Sampson team added real value to the sale process. They gave professional and honest advice on the best approach to selling my property.

        After going through a number of options and my priorities, their advice and knowledge of the local market was vital in securing a quick sale, which couldn't have been smoother.

        Not only are they professional, but they are a very likeable and friendly team - I would have no hesitation in suggesting them to anyone looking for a diligent, motivated agency."

        Cheers, Ian

        It was being so impressed with initial contact
        Morning Hilary & Peter 

         Just a quick note to thank you both and your team at Symonds & Sampson for making the purchase of our dream house happen, and all so efficiently considering some difficult circumstances. You have always kept us in informed and responded quickly to any queries we have raised, and a special thanks also to Jane for letting us have access to Orchard House on numerous occasions. 

         It was being so impressed with the initial contact with your branch that we decided to let the Poundbury office handle the sale of our other property in the village. We promise to give you a call once the house is all refurbished so you can come and see the transformation. Lets hope it isn't so long that you have all retired by then! We couldn't resist a sleepover last night! Thank you also for the vino and vouchers. 

         Speak soon, and thanks again
