Initial inspection, if requested, to advise on rental value and any repairs or furnishings that should be provided prior to letting. Viewings will be accompanied where we hold keys. Advertisements will be placed in various publications including the internet. Once tenants are found, references will be taken and their backgrounds checked. An agreement will be prepared between you and the tenant and will include a deposit of at least one months rent, to be held by us as stakeholders. A charge of £100 plus VAT is made for the agreement. An inventory of contents should be prepared to include service readings. We can arrange for this to be done, the charge depends on the size of property and amount of contents. We collect initial monies and deduct our fees for the period certain on the agreement. If tenants stay beyond that time we account to you quarterly in arrears up to a maximum period of twelve months. Future rents are paid direct to Landlord. In the event of non payment of rent we should be contacted so we may follow up any arrears with the tenant. In the event the tenant purchases the property from the landlord, a 2% fee plus VAT calculated on the sale price would be payable by the landlord on completion.
