Normally our Letting Fee is a percentage plus VAT of the first month's rental, depending on the rental assessment. For this fee we would carry out accompanied viewings with prospective tenants and provide a follow up service with all enquirers. As soon as interest is registered, we then process references, of which one is a bank reference, and the others, perhaps employers or previous landlord's references. Thereafter, Missives of Let are prepared and concluded. Prior to the tenant taking entry, a detailed inventory is taken in preparation for the check-in. On the date of entry, the tenant is checked into the property and the inventory is checked and agreed with the tenant. Meter readings are taken and then sent to the relevant authorities, and we advise the relevant council of the tenant's date of entry for registration purposes, making the tenant(s) liable for Council Tax.
Our management fee is a percentage plus VAT of rental income per month, for which we collect rent and transfer the net amount to your nominated bank account.
