Step-by-step guide to letting

Step 1: Accurate valuation

Your aim should be to let your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time.

This is why we consistently achieve the asking price across all our clients' properties.

Step 2: Selecting an Estate Agent

When choosing a letting agent consider their opening hours, when they will be available to conduct viewings, their high street presence and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These are critical to obtaining the maximum rental value for your property.

You should also check if your agent will organise your government-required Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) on your behalf or if you need to arrange this yourself? You are responsible for making this document available to prospective and future tenants. We UK Legal Estates can arrange this for you.

Step 3: Consider Property Management

Property Management can be the key to reaping maximum rental returns on your property. Many tenants insist on renting managed properties and are often prepared to pay a premium for this.

Instructing UK legal Estates to manage your property gives you peace of mind that both your property and tenants will be cared for 24/7.

Your dedicated Property Manager will look after the general day-to-day management and more complex issues such as emergency repairs, collection of rent, transfer of utilities and much more.

Step 4: Presenting your property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful let.Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger.

UK Legal Estates team will then take photographs and write comprehensive property descriptions, all in just one visit.

Step 5: Preparing your Property for Tenancy

Before you let your property for the first time you must consider obtaining a professional and comprehensive inventory. This will set out the condition and contents of the property. UK Legal Estates can carry out an inventory on your behalf.

Step 6: Marketing your Property

To find your perfect tenant you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media.

When you instruct UK Legal Estates to let your property you will automatically benefit from our unrivalled, comprehensive marketing package.

Step 7: Accompanied Viewing

Our longer opening hours are essential to maximise viewing opportunities for your property - in fact over 61% of our viewings are carried out after work and at weekends. Accompanied viewings also mean we can use our expertise to help let your property.

Step 8: Receiving of Offer

As soon as an offer is received we will contact you to communicate full details of an offer along with any special conditions to help you decide whether or not to accept.

Step 9: Offer Agreed

Once you accept an offer we will do the following, regardless of whether your property is managed:

  • Obtain references from the tenants
  • Arrange signing of Tenancy Agreement
  • Collect moving-in payment (rent + deposit)
  • Carry out check-in and inventory (if instructed)

For your added peace of mind, where applicable we will hold the deposit as a stakeholder and register this with a deposit protection scheme, resulting in a faster and more efficient deposit release process at the end of the tenancy.

Step 10: Completion

Upon completion, keys will be released to the tenant on moving-in day.

For managed properties, we will provide the tenant with contact details of their dedicated Property Manager.

Congratulations, your property is now let!
