The Letting Procedure: A Step-By-Step Guide
The first step
If you’re thinking of letting your property call our office
with the details and our friendly staff will give you an estimation
of rent you are likely to achieve. Before placing your property
on the market for letting we arrange to view the property and advise
of the rent obtainable. With every property we aim to find you the
most suitable tenant at the highest obtainable rent. We will give
you some handy tips for making your property more desirable and
will answer any questions you have about the process.
Once instructed, we will require a key and prepare to market the
property in a suitable manner. We will photograph the property;
place it on our office listing and web site. We will place a small
ad at a very minimal cost. A ‘To Let’ Sign can be put
in place if required.
Prospective tenants will arrange to view the property with one of
our experienced letting agents who will accompany them to the property.
Only suitable tenants will be considered.
Qualifying the tenant
We require references from all tenants moving into the property.
We carefully inspect all references and if you are happy we will
take a deposit. Before moving in to the property tenants must pay
a security deposit (equal to one months rent) plus the first months
rent in our office. They must provide photo I.D. and the P.P.S.
numbers of all tenants so the tenancy may be registered with the
PRTB (Private Residential Tenancy Board).
Utility bills will be transferred directly to the tenant’s
Tenants must be present to sign up for the property. At this stage
before being given the keys they must sign the contract, complete
a PRTB form to register the tenancy, change utility bills. We will
set up standing order to ensure the rent is lodged to your account
on a monthly basis.
Only when all of the above requirements have been
met and completed will a tenant get a key to the property.
We take our fee directly from the monies received in our office
(rent & security). We take a once off fee as every month thereafter
the rent in full will be lodged to your account by the tenants.
Our accounts department will send you a copy of your account statement
along the balance of monies. The landlord is responsible for the
return of deposit once the tenants vacate the property and he is
satisfied everything is in order.
Finalising the process
We will send you a copy of the contract for your own records along
with the signed PRTB form, which you must complete and register
with the PRTB within one month. For more info on the PRTB visit
