I'm a landlord

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!

Beginning your journey!

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.

Finding a tenant

Once you instruct Residential Estates our initial finding/letting service includes:

  • ERECTING A TO LET BOARD – Many potential tenants will visit an area of interest to them looking for TO LET boards to enquire about, rather than visiting the property portals, and many of our properties are let before even reaching the internet
  • MARKETING – Our marketing includes taking professional photos of your property, the quality of these photos are very important, like any kind of advertising, the better the ad or photo the more likelihood of enquiries.  We will help ‘stage’ the property for these photos, making sure it looks its best! It must look like a ‘home’ for someone, inviting!
  • ADVERTISING – Making sure your property is seen by as many potential tenants provides the best chance of getting the ‘right’ tenant/s for your property, again this is obviously incredibly important.  So your property will be added to the property portals such as Rightmove & Zoopla, but will also be marketed via different social media and our mailing list.
  • VIEWINGS – Let us conduct viewings for you, we can assess the potential tenants, and take the hassle away from you.
  • FEEDBACK – One important key in lettings is listening to feedback, if your property is getting viewings but no takers, why? We will give you all the feedback and advice at every step of the way.

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.

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.
