Steps To Be Taken During Letting Process

Step 1: Correct Valuation

Every property owner aims to let his or her property for the best price and also within the shortest time period. Our experienced valuers are well-aware of this fact and they utilize their expertise to let the property for a price that is close to your desired asking price.

Few of the important factors our experts take into consideration while performing rental valuation include:

  • Condition property is in
  • Local and transport amenities
  • Unfurnished or furnished accommodation
  • Kind of tenants who might get attracted towards the property

Step 2: Choose the Right Letting Agent

When selecting a letting agent you will have to take into consideration several points which include:

  • What are the opening hours?
  • When they would be able to conduct viewings?
  • Do they have high street presence?
  • What kind of marketing they will be able to do for your property?

Step 4: Prepare Your Home For Tenancy

Before letting the property, it will be important to create a detailed inventory. This inventory list will help in setting out the conditions of tenancy.

The good thing about working with us is that we will take over the responsibility of creation of this professional inventory so that you can sit back and relax.

  • Long Term Tenancy: This type of tenancy is for 6 or more months. Here it will be your responsibility to check whether tenant has set up account with telephone company, utility companies, and council tax office.
  • Short Term Tenancy: Here it will be your responsibility to pay for council tax, utility accounts, and TV licence. This is due to the fact that all these expenses are added in the rent. However, it will be the responsibility of the tenant to pay for telecommunication services.

Step 7: An Offer

When an offer is received we will immediately let you know all the details of the same so that you can take a decision about accepting or rejecting the offer.

If you do accept the offer then we perform other tasks such as checking tenant's credit references and income details. Few of the other details we look into at this juncture include:

  • Collection of move-in payment consisting of deposit and rent amount.
  • Make proper arrangements for signing of the agreement.
  • Carry out professional cleaning of your home.
  • Make arrangements for Gas Safety Inspection and Portable Appliance test.
