Are you thinking of letting a property? At Fisher Wrathall, our knowledge of the real estate industry can help you to fully enjoy the experience of being a landlord – as can our services. Being prepared to become a landlord means being aware of your rights and of all options you can receive when you choose us to let your property.
You might also just want to choose one or two services (such as finding a tenant or providing references) instead of everything we can offer. It’s up to you, as we can tailor our services to meet your needs at all times.
So, how can we help you let your flat or house for rent in Lancaster and what do our letting services include?
Professional Credit Checking and Referencing
A common concern for landlords is choosing the right tenant for their property. For this reason, we remove this worry and give you peace of mind by performing a full credit checking and referencing. This can assure you that you have made the right choice when it comes to the person or people who will be renting your property.
We use a specialist referring company and obtain a detailed understanding of a potential tenant’s personal and financial situations.
Preparations of Tenancy Agreements and Statutory Notices
Something that no landlord can go without is the tenancy agreement. We use an approved Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement that has been created to protect your rights and to help control the tenant’s activities, as well as comply with standard mortgage lender requirements.
Receiving your rent on time is important and we appreciate that you may be a bit wary of a defaulting tenant. While we do our best to ensure that every tenant chosen is reliable, circumstances can change; still, we also understand that you will need to receive your rental income no matter what, which is why we offer rent recovery plus services.
This can give you the peace of mind of knowing that you will always be covered should something happen, and your tenant is unable to pay rent on time.
When you’re letting a property, you want to reach the widest number of people possible. This is why we advertise on several different platforms for you, such as Rightmove, our own website and social media (like Twitter). We also advertise your property in the local property guide and our offices.
This way, we cover all bases and ensure that plenty of people see your property advertised.
Regular Inspections and Updates
Once a property is let, you might still want to be aware of its current state, a service that we can also offer you. We carry out regular inspections to make sure that your property is being taken care of properly and that any maintenance issues are immediately reported and dealt with.
We can provide advice on everything related to residential lettings. Our vast experience in the industry ensures that you always get the best services possible and don’t have to worry about anything. We take care of everything, so you don’t have to.
Contact us at any time to learn more about our services and how we can help you become a landlord. Alternatively if you are looking for flats or houses for rent in Lancaster, we can help!
