All viewings are carried out in line with government covid guidelines.

Choosing the

right tenant

Every tenant has their own individual circumstances. Reference checks are highly advised to our landlords. They allow you to find out very important information regarding the tenants financial and living history. The duration of the tenancy agreement, break clauses, children, pets, smoking and why the tenants are moving properties are also key factors, which need to be taken into consideration. Click will advise you and let you know if there are any warning signs.

Admin

Once you have accepted an offer, our administrator will ensure that all of the legal paperwork has been completed by the relevant parties. We will also ensure that all monies have cleared into our bank account before keys are handed over to your new tenant.

Management

When opting for our management service, you will be assigned your very own personal agent, who you can contact should any issues arise.

Maintenance

Maintenance – It’s always a good idea to set some money aside each month in order to fund any repairs, should they arise. £100 a month is usually our recommendation.

Landlord Insurance

There are 3 type of landlord insurance:

1. Buildings insurance which covers the structure and protects against fire and flood damage.

2. Contents insurance which protects all of the furniture and appliances inside the property.

3. Landlord liability insurance which protects the landlord should someone get injured inside the property with

the landlord judged to be responsible. The prices can range from very little to potentially

thousands depending on the property being insured.

Safety Certificates & EPC

If the property has gas supply, then as a landlord, it is your responsibility to provide a valid gas safety certificate to each tenant before the tenancy commences. This costs approximately £100. You are also required to make sure that the electrics are in good working order and are safe for use. If the property is classed as a HMO, then you will require a EICR (Electrical Insulation Condition Report) and PAT (Portable Appliance Test). These cost approximately £100 each.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) – EPC’s are mandatory with the sale or let of any property within the UK. If the property is let out under a AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy) then the EPC rating must be between A-E. EPC’s are valid for 10 years and generally cost between £60 - £100.

Rental Protection Policies

Rental protection policies – These can be arranged to protect you, should your tenant default on their rental payments. Plans generally cost between £100 - £300 depending on the size of the property and can be easily arranged.
