it's not complicated, but we thought we'd break down the process of letting your property with us in a simple step-by-step guide. For more details please contact the office.
there are certain things you are required to do by law as a landlord before you can let your property. we can arrange all of this for you.
once the deposit has been paid in full, the tenant has secured the property. this deposit is held against possible damage to the property which can be checked against the inventory at the end of the tenancy. the housing act 2004 protects all parties in this regard as the deposit is now required to be held within a government-approved scheme on an assured shorthold tenancy. this scheme offers quicker and easier ways of resolving disputes, without the need for court action.
as members of ARLA, we are registered with the tenancy deposit scheme, which is administered by the dispute service ltd, PO Box 1255, Hemel Hempstead, Herts HP1 9GN.
before a property can be marketed for sale or rental, an epc must be in place. a certificate is valid for 10 years and contains information about a property's energy use and typical energy costs, giving it an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). it also provides recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money.
the gas safety (installation and use) regulations came into force in 1996.
the landlord can either arrange for this to be done, or instruct the agent to have this work carried out. the landlord should do so in writing as the agency is not responsible or cannot accept any liability if the landlord fails to comply. we have a trusted registered contractor who charges per appliance for certification. please go to our services section and download our terms & conditions.
