Your property is safe in our hands
Letting your property
Your property is in safe hands with our dedicated Property Management Centre to which we can offer various options that suit you. It can allow you to have peace of mind all year round whilst we focus on fully managing your property, organising regular checks & rent collection.
We have a list of fully accredited and insured contractors for whatever works your property may require, we make sure that all prices are competitive and will always supply more than one quote for the works. To settle you further not only have we been doing this for over 15 years, we are also members of ARLA, The Property Ombudsman for sales and lettings and Safe Agent.
There are various circumstances in which letting out your property, or part of it, will suit your current circumstances, for example, you may have inherited a property which you do not want to sell immediately or maybe you have a second home that is not being fully utilised and could possibly make you some money. If any of these scenarios are relevant, than here is what you need to do to become a landlord.
Before you sign up with a lettings agent, you should find out about the financial, legal and regulatory matters involved in becoming a landlord. It is imperative that you check with your mortgage lender before letting your property. Write and tell them that you want to let your property. If you do not get their written permission then you could be in breach of your mortgage. If you live in a leasehold property, you will need to check your lease to make sure that you are not breaching any terms by letting your property. This could result in fees for granting consents, any special conditions may be involved and it will be up to you to make sure that your tenant and letting agent are aware of these conditions. Your current building and contents policy will probably not be suitable for application in the lettings market. Tenants are perceived to be more careless than an owner occupier so you will probably be facing an increase in your premium to cover damage. As a landlord you are obligated to keep the structure and exterior of the property in good repair.
