A guide to the Lettings process

PREPARING YOUR PROPERTY FOR VIEWINGS

Presenting your property in its best condition will assist greatly in achieving the best possible price in the shortest time. Good first impressions are so important. Stand outside your property and try to see it with fresh eyes. Try to cut the grass, weed driveways and borders and remove bins before viewings. It would, however, be sensible to carry out small repairs to give the impression that the property has been well-maintained and will continue to be well maintained. Tidy and clean all rooms and make sure kitchens and bathrooms are spotlessly clean or we can arrange reliable contractors to carry out these recommendations for you.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES (EPC'S)

When marketing a property for let, an EPC must be ordered for the property. An EPC tells you and the prospective tenant how energy efficient the property is, the impact it has on the environment and includes recommendations and ways to improve the property’s energy efficiency. We can start marketing a property without an EPC but it must be made available before move in. They are valid for 10 years, however, we can order one on your behalf if you do not have one already.
