Landlords In Gloucester

We pride ourselves in giving a personal and professional service to all of our landlords whether you own one property or a portfolio.

We provide either a Let Only Service or a Fully managed service. However we can tailor a specific services to meet your requirements. Our fees are transparent and simple and we do not add commission to contractor bills (unlike some agents).

 

Your Step By Step Guide To Letting A Property With Belvoir Gloucester:

Valuation - If you are considering letting out your property, the first step would be for us to come out and complete a FREE No Obligation Market Valuation. Using market comparables and combined with our knowledge of the Gloucester area, we would be able to give you an achievable rental figure.

Rent - Rents are payable by the tenant monthly to our client account. You will be paid direct from this account and we will prepare, at regular intervals, an income and expenditure account which you can send to the Inland Revenue.

Deposit - We collect a deposit from the tenant to safeguard against damage. At the end of the tenancy we will inspect the property and the costs of any work attributed to the tenant will be deducted from the deposit.

Tenant - We will find a suitable tenant for your property and take up references and credit checks

Agreement - We will prepare a legal agreement under current legislation to suit your particular circumstances. In general, this will be for a period of not less than 6 months and then renewable on a month to month basis. This gives you the flexibility to re-occupy the house after giving the tenant two months’ notice to quit. Similarly, the tenant may terminate after the initial period by giving one month's notice.

Rates and Services - The payment of water rates, council tax, gas, electricity and telephone bills are generally the responsibility of the tenants.

Repairs - As a Landlord, you are responsible for repairs to the property with the exception of window glass or other breakages caused by the tenants. Small repairs can be carried out by our contractors, or ones nominated by you, and their charges deducted from your account. We will always ask for instructions before commencing any large scale repairs.

Tax - From the total rent received in a tax year you can normally deduct, for tax purposes, the following:

Insurance - We provide information and help on rent and legal protection insurance, house building insurance and home contents insurance, all of which are important considerations when letting your home.
