Your property will appear on our website, Rightmove, Primelocation, Find a Property and several other property websites. We also advertise weekly in the local press, and one of the most effective forms of advertising is still a 'To Let' sign. Our office is located on Barnet High Street between the market and The Spires with ample passing trade to attract new customers.
Our team can manage the entire viewing process - you can leave keys with us or give us access to accompany all viewings. We have found that this provides a good opportunity for us to gauge the viewer's instant reaction and gather feedback for us to pass on to you.
Sometimes tenants are more honest without the homeowner present, which helps us give you more accurate feedback. We promise to give you feedback after every viewing.
Our aim is for you to start receiving offers on your property within a short time of us commencing marketing. We will advise you of the tenant's position so you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed.
If a tenant is interested in a property, we can take a holding deposit from them to secure the property. We use a specialist referencing agency* to carry out a thorough check on each applicant to ensure their credibility and their ability to afford the rent on your property. Once satisfactory references are obtained, and have been approved by you, we will then draw up the tenancy agreements.
Despite every measure taken when referencing a tenant, they could still face redundancy, and for peace of mind we recommend that you take out a rent guarantee and legal expenses policy. Our representative will provide you with full details.
Approximately two months prior to the end of the tenancy we will contact you and your tenant to ask if you wish to renew the contract. Should you require possession, we will serve the relevant notices to the tenant. Should they wish to vacate, we will, with your consent re-advertise the property for re-letting. Should you both wish to renew, we will draw up the new contracts on your behalf. A renewal commission will be payable.
Moving in Day
We will arrange a mutually convenient moving in date and arrange for the contracts to be signed by the tenant and they will pay one month's rent in advance and the deposit. Once signed and paid we will release the keys to them. Your account will then be prepared and all the paperwork will be sent to you shortly after.
