All you need to know about letting
Before you can decide whether it's the right time to rent out your property, you must first know about the area you're letting in, what the local property market is doing, who's looking to rent and who's not, and of course, what your investment is worth. You could spend hours researching this yourself, or better still, you could leave the hard work to us and we will present all of this to you on a valuation appointment, either in person or over the phone.
Once you've chosen which agent you want to work with, they will set about preparing the marketing details for you. Our property details include high quality photographs, measurements, accurate floor plans and well written property descriptions, and will only be set live upon your approval. We also provide a To Let board, listings on Rightmove, On The Market and our own website, viewings arranged and accompanied by us, regular property reviews and MyPropertyFile, your own property portal to keep you up to date with viewings, feedback and applications.
The art of negotiation is a skill essential to any good letting agent. We follow up all viewings personally, by phone, and put applications to you immediately. We will qualify prospective tenants and advise you on their timescales and future intentions, so you can make an informed decision. We won't take the property off the market, or take any fees from the tenants, until you are happy they are the right tenants for you. Once references are are back, we will negotiate the tenancy to ensure the start date, term and conditions are all right for you.
