Successful Letting and Tenancy Management

Know your market – develop a Marketing Plan and understand your Target Market

Reaching your Tenants – The advertisement, local press, letting boards, Internet sites

Selling yourself and your property:

  • Initial Contact – often by telephone
  • The Viewing – personal contact
  • The Tenancy Application Form – identification & information
  • Identity Document Right-to-Rent checks
  • Credit Checks & Referencing – Credit Report, Employer and Landlord References
  • Having a Guarantor – when tenants are young, students, or low credit scores

Check original documents to verify the Tenancy Application Form information and the tenant’s identity:

  • to make sure the tenant can pay your rent
  • to make sure your tenant has a good record in previous accommodation
  • to make absolutely certain you can trace your tenant if she leaves without a forwarding address

The Main Documents:

  • National Insurance Number
  • Passport (photocopy with photo)
  • Driver’s Licence (photocopy with photo)
  • Utility bill in with previous address
  • 3 months’ current account bank statements – optional
  • Tenancy Agreement
  • Inventory & Safety Check
  • Tenant’s Information Pack
