Getting to know your property

For new customers, we will visit your property and offer you a free market appraisal, including our advice on yield enhancement. This means you’ll get the best price, as well as attract tenants who will look after your property better.

Instruction to Let

We’ll give you the time and space to make your own decision. If you decide to let your property with us, we’ll ask for written confirmation and then make sure your property is compliant to let. This means checking various services and safety measures are in place.

Marketing to tenants

We create a marketing package for your property with photography and any other appropriate materials and will reach out to likely tenants as soon as possible. We will accompany them on viewings and give you feedback, so you know what potential tenants like and don’t like.

Receiving applications

Once we receive an application from a potential tenant, we’ll make sure they’re suitable for your property — our managers get to know everyone we show around and pride themselves on forging personal relationships that work over the long term. Once we’ve done that, we’ll ask for your approval and go on to check the applicant’s references and credit.

Contracts

We will draw up a contract and identify any special clauses for negotiation, and commission a detailed inventory of the property for you.

Occupation

Once we’ve received deposits and rent, we will let the tenant take occupation. We can read the meters and book a check-in appointment to make sure they are happy with the property. You’ll get a rental statement as the funds are transferred to your bank.

For Managed Properties

For Managed Properties, we’ll visit at least twice a year and add a 6-week property visit to check maintenance. Managed properties also get a 10-week reminder before the tenancy expires to ask if they want to renew. Then, at the end of tenancy, we’ll carry out a detailed inspection to ensure the property is in the same condition, allowing for fair wear and tear.
