How It Works
What is included for free (no ifs, no buts, no hidden charges)
- We will visit your property and give you a no obligation idea of the achievable rental, however, you always choose how much we list the property for
We will erect our distinctive “To Let” board outside the property
We will list your property on our website, Rightmove and Zoopla for 30 days* with a distinctive description and photography that helps your property pop
We will arrange viewings with prospective tenants (who meet your criteria) at a time to suit you
We will collect a holding deposit equivalent to one week’s rent prior to taking the property off the market.
How can you do all that for free?
Well firstly, we don’t rent expensive high street offices so don’t have electric, water, business rates and rent overheads to cover. If you need to see us, no problem we can come to you or to the rental property. We don’t manage or let any property more than 30 minutes away in case there’s an emergency.
We offer full lettings management (see below), which we hope you will consider using if you are happy with our service. We’ll only ask you once if you’d like to use us and you are welcome to say no, but we are always here should you need it.
We also offer a number of add-on services; we are up front about these from the start and will not push them on you. You can use these, or not. If you don’t want to use any of them, no problem, we will still market your property for free!
Optional property management
This is charged at 10% of the monthly rent (please contact us for rates if you have more than one rental property). We will collect the rent, make sure you're adhering to your legal obligations, inspect the property every 6 months, deal with any maintenance issues and provide your tenants with our out of hours emergency contact line. It’s as hassle free as it gets!
If you opt for a full management service we will reference up to two tenants for free. We will not be able to offer management services if referencing is failed or not completed.
Our management service runs for a minimum of 3 months, after which management services can be cancelled with one months notice.
If you are unhappy with your current managing agent or finding it a bit too much hassle doing it yourself, get in touch we will be happy to help.
Optional add-on services
£180 – unlimited viewings over a 30 day period. Evenings, weekends, during work hours all included. Your prospective tenant wants to view at 9pm on a Sunday night? No problem.
We will not just let the property to the first viewer through the door; this traditional approach tends to cause more problems in the long run in our experience. We will send the application forms from all prospective tenants to you so that you to choose whom to go with.
