What should you expect from your Letting Agent? An Agent who listens, and keeps YOU informed at every step of your letting and management journey, this is, for most of us, one of our biggest and most expensive assets, your property. A respected trusted agent will provide peace of mind that your property is not only performing as an asset to the best of its ability, but it is being treated with the respect that you would expect, the same as the property you live in.
If you’ve got an empty property that you’re unsure what to do with, but don’t want to sell, a great way of using it as a source of extra income can be to rent it out. However, there are a lot of different aspects to renting out a property as a private landlord and there are lots of traps that you could fall into, which could end up costing you a lot of money. To alleviate the issues you may encounter you may consider using our extensive lettings services, tailored to suit YOUR requirements, incl. A NO MANAGEMENT FEES managed serviced, see below for details!
Please contact our office to book a FREE valuation and full lettings appraisal of your property/ies. This is a no obligation meeting where we will advise you of the potential of your property and provide all the information you will need on the rent, demand, suggestions of improvement if required to maximise potential, and on going services.
Once you instruct Residential Estates our initial finding/letting service includes:
Interested parties will be referenced and you will be kept up to date with the process at every step of the way. Once the perfect tenant has been found, referenced and agreed with you then we will organise all the relevant paperwork and details relating to the legislation, such as protecting the deposit, checking the relevant safety certificates are in place for the gas and electric. A full detailed schedule of condition and inventory will be taken, contracts drawn up and signed and the keys handed over.
Many Agents will offer to Manage your Property but each month you see a fee taken from YOUR rental income. Wouldn’t it be nice to see and feel the benefit of actually getting a professional letting agent’s service with no management fee?

The updated 'How to Rent' guides for landlords & tenants.
As a landlord, there are a number of legal requirements to be complied with prior to letting out a property.
One of these is to provide a copy of the Government-issued 'How to Rent' checklist to all tenants when entering into and renewing an assured shorthold tenancy, which is the most common type of contractual letting agreement.
