Landlords

A tenant introduction service with unbeatable value. If you ask for our Sole Agency Agreement we provide this service for only 12% inclusive of VAT of the first six months rent. If you are confident that you can manage the tenancy without professional help this could be the service for you.

  • We will visit your property and advise on the rental value and on any other relevant points including the latest regulations. At this time you will be able to ask us any questions you may have.
 

Using our Management Service will give you complete peace of mind that your property is being looked after by professionals. We offer this comprehensive service for the competitive fee of 14.4% inclusive of VAT if our sole agency agreement is requested.

In addition to the services offered in our letting service we also include the following:

  • Arranging the preparation of the property for the incoming tenant and regularly inspecting the property, in the presence of the tenant where possible.
 

GUIDELINES TO MAXIMISING THE POTENTIAL OF YOUR PROPERT

Decoration
Most tenants prefer rented properties to be plainly decorated. This means that their furniture will not clash with the decoration and plain painted walls are easier to repair should your tenant have an accident.

Cleaning
If a tenant finds the property in good order they are more likely to return it that way. We recommend the use of professional cleaners prior to the start of the tenancy. The Landlord can then insist that the tenant uses professional cleaners when they leave the property.

Viewings
It is important to present your property in good condition to prospective tenants. They may be looking at a selection of houses or flats that day and first impressions count. If you are showing the property yourself make sure you have plenty of time so that they are not rushed.

Below are a few items you may want to see to before the tenant arrives:

  • Keep the rooms uncluttered, as this will give an extra feeling of space.
 

The importance of an Inventory and Statement of Condition cannot be over stressed. It is an agreement that will ultimately decide what dilapidation has occurred during the tenancy and should be capable of being used in the event of a dispute. Under the Deposit Protection Scheme it is in practice essential to have an inventory otherwise it is likely, in the event of a dispute, that the tenant will be awarded the deposit.

Elliott and Bunn use a trained Inventory Clerk and have negotiated an exceptional deal to keep the cost of an inventory to a minimum when arranged by us.
