  • How to choose letting agent
    by LMK
    Hi. I am just getting ready to rent my property out for the first time.
    I am planning on getting a few letting agents around, seeing what they say, what they can offer (planning on going for the full management option), their prices etc.
    But is there anything in particular that I should...

    If I could go back in time, I'd advise 'the old me' to do swot up on all the regulatory stuff and do everything myself. These forums are a great place for info, as is the Moneysaving Expert website. Find the relevant tradesmen (personal recommendation is best) too.

    I've found that if...

    Refer the agent to paragraph 5 of the list of terms which may be regarded as unfair set out in Schedule 2 to the Consumer Rights Act 2015:

    A term which has the object or effect of requiring that, where the consumer decides not to conclude or perform the contract, the consumer must pay the...

  • Letting agent cease fee = 12 months fees.
    by lamblord
    Hi All,

    I became a landlord back in January 2019 when I moved in with my partner, and we rented out my property. I used a letting agency, as I didn't really have the time to invest in learning how to manage a property myself. The letting agent got 3 tenants in on 12 month agreement, that...

    I would visit them and have a chat about their approach, charges etc. The monthly charge is important, as is how they charge for deposit protection (this can vary quite a lot). Ask about their approach to repairs etc and choose one which fits with what you want AND offers good value.

    Remember...

    Tell the letting agent that you feel the charge is, given the level of service you have received, excessive. Tell them you are happy to pay 3 months' fees and no more. See how they respond.

    If you're still not happy, try approaching the redress scheme the agent is a member of. They can...

    Nothing attached.

    Such termination clauses are, however, pretty stanard in agency contracts.

    Bear in mind that if these are unrelated tenants, the property will be an HMO and the full HMO Management Regulations will apply.

  • Reply to Newly refurbished house to let- fully managed or finder fee only?
    by jpkeates
    And the tenant's free day may not coincide with yours.

    There are five hidden benefits to using an agent:
    1 - There are usually several people to answer the phone, make calls and arrange things at an agent, while if you DIY, there's you.
    2 - It's much easier to say no to things...

  • Newly refurbished house to let- fully managed or finder fee only?
    by Lots on
    I have been a landlord, initially accidental (had to manage fathers properties when he became ill) then by choice. Only 2 properties, a student flat which is fully managed and a house which I inherited with tenants in situ and no letting agents, it was quite hands off but amicable. They have moved...
