The Letting Agency










Landlords Introduction

The Letting Agency is situated in the pleasant Market Town of Halstead, serving a wide area both in the town and throughout the surrounding villages and countryside.
We specialise  and pride ourselves in providing a unique, personal service tailored to suit your individual requirements.
On receiving your enquiry we will arrange to meet you at the property and after completing our inspection and talking over any queries you may have we will give you a free on-the-spot valuation.
Once the details are finalised we will market your property. We will  be taking exterior interior colour  photographs to display in our High Street window, and on our Website and property portals. Details are then given to our many waiting Applicants.
You will find that we take particular care in finding the right tenant for your property. Whenever possible we will accompany applicants on viewings, although naturally you may wish to be present to meet them too.

Firstly we will collect a Holding deposit (usually the equivalent of 1 months rent). This is held until the end of the tenancy when it is usually returned in full to the tenant. We will then obtain at least 3 references for your tenant. ie:

  • A financial Status Enquiry from a Bank or Building Society

  • A present or past Employers reference.

  • A character reference.

Where possible we will  obtain a Previous Landlords reference as these are the most valuable. These together with any other information will be forwarded to you for your approval.
Once you have given us the go-ahead we will draw up the  Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements which you and your tenant will be required to sign.

Before the start of the Tenancy we will carry out a detailed Inventory and Schedule of Condition of the property. On the day of the start of the  Tenancy we will meet your Tenant at the property to check them in. We will go through the Inventory with them and obtain their signature. It is then read and signed by you. If necessary the Agreements  are then sent off to be stamped  before being sent to you and to your tenant. Once the Tenancy  has commenced we can offer you further services if you so wish.
