Letting Q&A's


How soon will my property be let?
Difficult to say but we will do our best to secure a good tenant as soon as possible. We would not put a tenant into a property unless they have been fully vetted.
How do you vet prospective tenants?
We use a professional referencing company who use a low, medium & high risk scoring method. If necessary we would obtain a guarantor who would also be vetted.
How soon will I get my rent?
Approximately 7 working days after we receive it from the tenant.
How will the rent be paid?
By auto banking or cheque
What happens if my tenant does not pay the rent?
We send initial reminders then a threat of County Court Action and if 2 months arrears accrue a notice is issued giving 2 weeks notification of court action for possession.
