LET ONLY SERVICE
- When we are instructed operate on a let only basis (tenant finding only) the service we offer will include:
An initial meeting at your property to offer our opinion as to a realistic current market rental value and presenting a good opportunity to discuss the property’s potential and offer any advice that you may require. We will discuss the service we offer, in as much detail as you wish, and answer any queries you may have.
By instructing us to market your property, you will benefit from a pro-active marketing commitment combining both traditional and modern methods, second to none. Our marketing software will produce full-colour details with room dimensions and ample photographs which can be accessed from our website, rightmove.com and your property will benefit from our eye catching to let board, if required.
We will arrange for interested parties to view your property and will always accompany viewings. We will be available to accompany viewings six days a week, diaries permitting.
Once interested parties express the desire to rent a property they will complete application forms, pay-over our administration fee and be thoroughly vetted. We will require residential identification, carry out a credit assessment verifying the electoral role, searching public records for any adverse information such as CCJ’s, Bankruptcies, Voluntary Arrangements and verification of current and previous addresses. We will also take-up a written Employer’s reference or other satisfactory verification of financial means or income, a Bank status enquiry and a previous Landlord/Agent reference, if appropriate. All Tenancies are now subject to mandatory Right To Rent Checks in order to comply with the Immigration Act 2014 as amended 2016.
Should we receive applications from parties who we feel are good candidates but whose applications are a little weak (for example, a particularly young applicant) then we will advise you accordingly and, should you be agreeable, take a Guarantor to the tenancy.
For applications received from parties on Housing Benefit, a clean credit history and residential identification will still be required and we will take a Guarantor to the tenancy, who must meet all of the above criteria. We will establish whether or not you are agreeable to applications of this nature prior to marketing
In all cases we will keep you fully informed and only proceed with your approval.
In all cases we will take at least one month’s rent in advance and the equivalent of one and a half month’s rent as a bond, in cleared funds, prior to the tenancy. We will hold the bond as Stakeholder. As a member firm of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, we will register the tenancy details online and issue the appropriate certificate to the Tenants to ensure that the bond is held within an appropriate insurance based scheme to comply with The Housing Act 2004 (Chapter 4 Sections 212 – 5; and Schedule 10) deposit protection requirements.
We will prepare all the necessary Tenancy Agreements, Guarantee Agreements and Legal Notices.
Whether furnished or unfurnished, we will prepare a detailed Inventory and this will be supported with photographs.
We will take meter readings and write to the appropriate utility suppliers (Gas, Water and Electricity) and notify the Council Tax Department with regard to the change in occupation.
Paying-out Let Only Clients
At this point our responsibility as Agent ends with Let Only clients. We will pay over monies collected on your behalf (one month’s rent) with our fees and any other expenditure deducted. We will arrange for future rent due to be paid directly to you, the Landlord, usually by standing order. At this point we will furnish the in-going Tenants with your contact details.
One off Letting Fee, payable at the outset of each new tenancy –
for Tenancies under an initial fixed term of 12 months – 66% inc VAT of the first month’s rent, subject to a minimum of: £390 inc VAT
for Tenancies with an initial fixed term of 12 months or over – 96% inc VAT of the first month's rent, subject to a minimum of : £510 inc VAT
We’ll Help You To:

- Take care of all the legal documents by preparing all the necessary Tenancy Agreements, Legal notices, and Guarantee Agreements.
- Produce a thorough inventory of the property which will act as a baseline to measure any damage against at the end of a tenancy.
- Prepare a thorough inventory of the property which will act as a baseline to measure any damage against at the end of a tenancy.
- Register all details of the tenancy online and issue the appropriate paperwork to the tenants. We do this to ensure that the bond is lodged with an appropriate insurance based scheme that complies with The Housing Act 2004.
More Happy Customers
I’ve been with Assured Residential for 17 months and would recommend to both prospect landlords and tenants. When viewing the property it was refreshing to hear their intent is ensuring the right tenants are in the properties not just filling them. I myself was one of multi tenants interested in my house, everything about the process was very clear. My tenancy to date has been really good, issues are dealt with really quickly. Ross, Heather and Kirsty are all very friendly and helpful.
“Been with Assured Residential for 4 years. Sadly had to leave the property as our family has expanded so more rooms were needed. I must say assured have been the nicest and most professional estate agents I have ever dealt with. They are very reliable and deliver a fast service whenever there was a problem with the property it was dealt with usually within 2 days. I personally have dealt with Ross and Kirsty over the last 4 years and must say each time they have been very pleasant and extremely helpful. If there was a property big enough for rent through Assured Residential we would have gladly continued to use them. Highly recommended .”
