2. Managed or Let only?

Before choosing your agent in Leicester, have a think about how much you want them to be involved and what services you want to be included. For those of you who are looking for the agent to take care of everything from start to finish, then fully managed would be the one for you. This is also recommended for those that are new or less experienced landlords. Alternatively, you may be looking for tenant-find only where yourself will be involved in the everyday managing of the property. Here at Belvoir, we offer both of these options and would be more than happy to discuss the service options with you in more detail at a property appraisal to help you make the right choice for you.

3. Shop around

Here at Belvoir Leicester, we understand that you might want to consider your options before deciding who to entrust your most valuable asset to. We are happy to discuss any other offers you may have received from other agents, in regards to fees or levels of services. However, we already know that your property will be handled best by our team due to our personal service, so for more information on becoming a Belvoir landlord please contact us.

4. Read the paperwork

Make sure you understand what you are signing. Whilst it might sound simple, sometimes the amount of information provided within estate agent contracts can seem overwhelming. Our team are always on hand to help explain or provide you with more clarifications on any points included in our contracts.

5. Protect Yourself

Letting’s agents in Leicestershire do not have to be part of any regulated bodies, however professional companies will choose to invest in themselves. This means they have to follow codes of professional conduct and have guarantees in place to protect landlord’s money. In return this then provides the best service for landlords and tenants. Look out for agents that are members of;

  • Safeagent (Safeagent Scheme)
  • SAFE AGENT
  • TPO (The Property Ombudsman)
  • TDS (Tenancy Deposit Scheme)
  • DPS (Deposit Protection Service) – (or other deposit protection schemes)

6. Consider Maintenance

We know that your house is likely to be your most valued possession which is why its important that it’s looked after properly. Make sure to find out whether regular inspections will be included to check that the tenant is keeping the property in good order. Also consider finding out what panel of contractors are on board with the agent that may be called upon to fix any maintenance issues and repairs.
