LETTINGS AND LANDLORDS GUIDE

At Premier Lettings Solutions we make it our aim to secure you the best possible rental return for your investment property and by making sure we get tenants that will care for your property as much as you do.

When selecting your rental agent there is a lot to consider and lots of bold statements can be made by agents. One of the most important factors to consider is how they will market your property. At Premier Lettings Solutions we like to treat your property like our own and carry out reference checks to ensure you get the best tenant for your property and also ensuring a hassle free tenancy agreement.

We offer a range of packages for our landlords to choose from including a fully managed tenancy allowing you to put your feet up while we do all the work, from organising repairs and maintenance to collecting rent so speak to us today and about our rates.

WHY CHOOSE US

We are more than just an online letting agent, unlike many of our online competitors we are real people that you can speak to at the end of the phone, our customers love our personal service and we have a small and friendly team that are always here to help you every step of the way.

Our fees are extremely competitive and we understand that marketing your property is crucial to ensure we are able to let it as quickly as possible which is why we not only send out our latest properties to our database of tenants but as well as displaying your property on our website we also use all of the major property portals including Rightmove and Zoopla.

THE FIRST STEPS

There are now a number of legal requirements which landlords need to adhere to before letting out their property, for example all rental properties must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and since 1998 a gas safety certificate must be issued annually for all properties connected to gas.

Our team can help organise these requirements for you with one of our approved and insured assessors and engineers.

There are also some other important factors which you need to consider:-

  • Carrying out portable applicant tests at the start of every tenancy
  • Ensuring working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are fitted on each floor
  • Ensuring all furniture is safe to use in accordance to the Furniture and Furnishing Act 1998

Presenting your property

First impressions are everything, ensure your property is superbly presented to increase your property’s appeal so we recommend that you consider a few minor DIY jobs that may be needed such as ripped wallpaper or broken door handles so that your property looks presentable to the potential tenants.

Premier Lettings Solutions can put you in touch with one of our approved and trusted contractors to touch up on any areas that might need a splash of paint if you are too busy to do this yourself. In addition to this we advise all landlords to have a professional clean of their property prior to commencement of the new rental agreement again this is a service that we can also help with.

 

Preparing your property for tenancy

Before checking your tenants into your property you must obtain a professional and thorough inventory. This will document the conditions and contents of the property and will include dated photographs as evidence should a dispute arise.

We will carry out a professional inventory on your behalf. If you have not opted for our fully managed service then you are responsible for ensuring all meters have been read and that you have informed utility companies, TV and internet suppliers, council tax and TV licencing department for each tenancy change over.
