Letting your property
Proctors have a wealth of time served experience dealing with the legal and practical aspects of residential letting and property management. We pride ourselves in providing a fully comprehensive, efficient and personal service to suit the needs of both the landlords and tenants. We appreciate that letting your home is a big decision, so it is important that you are aware of all the implications and are in the hands of professionals who give the best advice.
* Please be aware a landlord owning a leasehold property will be required to comply with the head lease imposed by the freeholder who is also known as the superior landlord.*
We will carry out a detailed market appraisal to establish the appropriate rental level, advice on repairs or improvements to enhance the property, tenant selection and any other relevant issues.
Careful tenant selection is essential to minimise future problems. Thorough checking is essential to ensure that your property is let to the most suitable tenants. We use specialise companies to carry out credit, affordability and employer references.
ONE: ‘Let Only’
We will market the property, introduce tenants, carry out references and credit checks, prepare schedule of conditions and prepare the tenancy agreement. We will also ensure mandatory items such as gas safety certificates and energy performance certificates are in place. Once we have moved a tenant into the property we will pass all relevant paperwork over to the landlord who will take over all dealings with the property.
TWO: ‘Fully Managed’
The service is exactly the same as ‘Let Only’ but once the tenant has moved in we will then continue to manage the property on an ongoing basis. We will collect the rent, arrange for property inspections, deal with any maintenance or repair issues, renew agreements and service noticed where applicable. We have access to all trades and contractors, although there is no obligation to use these if a landlord has a preferred tradesman. We manage a comprehensive register of all property types and have a wealth of experience in this field.
