Guide to Letting
Once you have decided to let your property, one of our dedicated team members will conduct a rental valuation at a time convenient for you.
Considering short let
A short let (starting from 1 week up to 6 months) allows your property to bring in rental income in-between long term tenants. You may benefit from flexibility of commitment and high returns on your property. Short lets require for you to be responsible for taking care of utility and council tax bills as these costs are included in the rent (tenant will be responsible for telecommunications).
Roding Estates offer property management services which would be ideal for landlords who lead busy lives, live abroad or simply wish to rely on us to take care of their property. We would carry out any property preparations before seeking for tenants, maintaining the property once it is let, resolving any problems that arise to minimise any discomfort for tenants and far beyond. We will ensure that you receive your rental income on time!
In order for your property to appeal to a large scale of potential tenants, you will want to prepare it well. To do so, you may want to add a fresh coat of light-coloured paint, make sure the property is clean, tidy and nicely decorated (we will take care of it if you choose property management service). Roding Estates’ team will then take photographs, produce floor plans, arrange an Energy Performance Certificate to be issued (it is required by law before letting your property and will be valid for 10 years) and advertise your property on leading sales portals.
Once you are ready to open the doors to potential tenants, Roding Estates’ team member will start conducting viewings at a time convenient for you. Viewings can be conducted from 8am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.
Accepting an offer
Once the tenant makes an offer, we will contact you to discuss any details and conditions to guide you towards your decision of accepting or not accepting. If you are happy to go ahead with an offer, we will collect references from the tenants, draft a ‘Tenancy Agreement’ and collect moving-in payment, which is rent and deposit. After the contracts are signed and monies have been received, the keys will be released to tenant on moving day – congratulations on your property being let!
