Once an offer is agreed.

Once you have agreed to an offer, it is time to get all of the pre-tenancy preparation under way.  Quite often this is a quick process, especially if you are trying to minimise your void period between tenancies.  That is why it is prudent to get as much of the paperwork sorted as early as possible.


Being compliant

The lettings industry is governed by over 140 pieces of legislation and that is why we will guide you through your landlord requirements.  There are a number of legal requirements and these can all be found at the bottom of the page, but they will cover your tenant’s safety from anything in the property which can cause harm, such as, gas installations, electrical wiring, issues with the water supply, and danger from any fixtures and fittings.  When you agree to a tenancy with another party, it is a legally binding contract, so we urge you to read our tenancy agreement thoroughly and ensure you ask us about any questions you have.
