Viewings

A trading standards approved Guild Associate will be present at all viewings of our properties to let. This enables us to gather feedback and also to assess potential tenants in person, rather than relying on referencing alone. Good tenants who will look after your property and pay their rent on time are as much in our interest as they are in yours.

Referencing

No tenant moves into a property we manage before we have carried out detailed checks and received the required references. Every tenant over the age of 18 will be required to complete our referencing process, Tenants details, such as employment status, credit history and previous landlord references, are thoroughly checked before they are able to rent your property.

Rent & Legal Cover

We offer all of our landlords additional rent protection policies at an additional cost. You can rest assured you’re covered for every eventuality. Whilst we rigorously check every new tenant, this guarantee will cover any unforeseen circumstances, such as tenant illness and inability to pay the rent.

Contacts

Anthony Lettings will manage and prepare the appropriate legal contracts between you and your tenant. These can be individually tailored for specific requirements and conditions. Once you are happy with the document we will send out the contract to be signed electronically which is a quick, efficient and safe way of signing a legal contract.

Inventory

Before the start of every new tenancy we take a detailed inventory of the property in both written and photographic form, which the new tenant/s will check and sign. The inventory is then used as a reference when the tenants move out to assess any work required to return the property to its original condition.

Deposits

As a rental property owner you are legally required to hold all tenancy deposits in a government registered scheme. At Anthony Lettings we are members of My deposits where all of our tenancy deposits are held. Many agencies ask for a month’s deposit, but at Anthony Lettings we insist on receiving a month and a half’s rent upfront to ensure any potential damage to the property is covered. If there are pets or other special circumstances we are happy to request extra security.

Utilities & Council Tax

Most agencies leave the transfer of utilities and council tax to the tenants or landlord, but not Anthony Lettings. It’s all part of our comprehensive management service. We leave nothing to chance, logging all utility readings before transferring council tax and utility accounts into our new tenants name.

Inspections

We perform regular inspections of all of our managed properties to ensure they are being maintained correctly, to check for any work that may need doing and to ensure that the tenants aren’t experiencing any issues. Initially we perform the first inspection at the end of the first month’s tenancy. After that inspections are conducted on a quarterly basis. For longer-term tenants with a perfect track record in a property we can arrange to carry out these inspections less frequently if all parties are in agreement.

Rent Reviews

To ensure you are achieving the best possible return on your investment we carry out regular rent reviews when we are legally able. The market demand is currently extremely high, so it is possible to achieve higher rents than you may imagine. Having said that, we always bear in mind that a good tenant is worth keeping.
