Property Rental FAQ’s
Q. How much will it cost me to let my property?
A. There are differing costs for the various rental scenarios. It depends on which service you require and other factors such as if it is a portfolio or a single property you require letting. Please contact your local office for the exact costs to suit the service you require.
Q. Are there any additional marketing costs to letting my property ?
A. The only initial marketing cost that you might incur would be for an EPC (energy performance certificate) if you do not already have one. This is something that we can arrange for you at £75 + VAT.
Q. Do I need to be present for viewings?
A. No, a member of our team will always be present at all viewings.
Q. What is an EPC and how long will it be valid for?
A. An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate that will last for 10 years from its original issued date.
Q. How much is the tenants deposit and what happens to it?
A. We take 6 weeks deposit from all tenants and register it with one of the governments approved landlord deposit schemes.
Q. What does the new deposit scheme involve and how does it protect me?
A. All deposits will be registered in one of the approved landlord deposit schemes within 30 days of a new tenant moving into a property. Once logged, the deposit is then protected which in turn protects the interests of both tenant and landlord and provides a governing body who can make a decision on any dispute that might arise at the end of the tenancy.
Q. How much does an inventory cost and who is responsible for doing this?
A. Inventory prices will vary depending on the size of your property and if it comes furnished or unfurnished. We will be able to give you an exact price on the valuation. We will ensure that an inventory is carried out for you and take responsibility for doing this.
Q. How long does it take to receive my rent once paid by the tenant?
A. Tenants rent should arrive into your account within a maximum of 5 working days of arriving into our account.
