Finding the right tenant
With our effective marketing we will soon generate a number of enquiries for your property – but choosing the right tenant is the most important stage of the process – and we do not leave this to chance!
We work with one of the leading tenant referencing services in the UK, Let Alliance, to ensure that the tenant would be suitable for the property.
- We complete a full credit check which would alert us to any previous issues as well as establishing their previous residences.
- We contact the applicant’s previous landlord or managing agent for a reference and to understand if there have been any previous issues with the tenancy.
- We contact the applicant’s employer to establish their affordability of the rent and to ensure we understand their current employment situation.
Managing your property
As a landlord you have a number of legal responsibilities and it is almost a full time job in itself keeping abreast of all of the legislation changes. With our extensive knowledge and experience in the lettings market, many landlords decide to use us to manage their property removing all of the stress and hassle associated with lettings.
