  • to let boards and advertising

    1. Is there any set rules relating to how long a LET flag board can be positioned outside a property?

    2. As well as a LET board are there any rules about putting another flag board next to it promoting ones letting service offers?

    3. What about small advertisemant boards on railings at junctions. I see them all the time, so is that also it acceptable?

    4. Could a flag board advertising ones services be erected on ones own property??

    Thanks in advance

    1. Is there any set rules relating to how long a LET flag board can be positioned outside a property?

    Yes, Town and country Planning act
    Once a flat or house hasbeen let or sold, Flag bourd must be
    taken down after 14 days.
    Any longer and you send a bill to letting agent for using your
    property for advertising at £ 1000 per day, on your property,
    without your permission. ( That's what I do, but if you are
    not prepared to remove the sign after 14 days and walk into
    their offices, and plonk it on the desks, dont send the bill )
    I state the fee is waived so long as the place is for sale or rent.

    when board does comedown, you send abill for the damage done
    to the wall, and you want th e brick with the holes in replaced, and
    the timber removed ( that breaks off sometimes ) and soil
    replenished where there isnow a hole in the soil.


    2. As well as a LET board are there any rules about putting another
    flag board next to it promoting ones letting service offers?

    To let / for sale cannot be more than one ( from memory ) post,
    but you can have one post with a different company on the other
    side of the "flag"


    3. What about small advertisemant boards on railings at junctions.
    I see them all the time, so is that also it acceptable?

    No, it would probably be against Council regulations.

    4. Could a flag board advertising ones services be erected on ones
    own property??

    Probably,but you would get complaints from the street, and may be
    toldto take it down.

    But sounds like you want to advertise your own services and are
    finding ways to put signs all over the place.
    This is not recommended.

    Pay your money and advertise correctly and legaly.

      Hello,

      I am new to this forum and to the private rental market. Having just gone through a fairly turbulent contract renewal I have lost all patience with my management agent and have decided I want to move away from them as every communication from them creates more work for me putting...

      this is exactly why I recommended it as a question to ask. You should know that the agent works for you on your terms and so if this isn't something you want and the LA insists on it and has hefty fees, you can walk away. You can play ignorant and see if they try to pull the wool over your eyes by saying...

      Landlords should also know that in such case whatever fee the tenant paid to the agent belongs to them....

      You are right, of course, but I know at least one major letting agency whose policy is to send a letter to the tenant with an ultimatum; "Renew, and pay us XXX, or expect your notice."

      I guarantee that most of the landlords for whom they are acting don't know that this is the...

      Good idea to test them, but this is really not their decision and it is for the landlord to tell them what to do....

      prepare yourself a standard list of questions about issues that you know agents should be aware of and ask the same questions to each agent to allow you to compare responses. Questions such as
      1. How long from receiving the deposit should it be protected?
      2. When should I install a carbon monoxide detector?
      3. Do

      jpkeates Thanks for the heads up on that - I have looked at their terms of business and I will be removing them the Management of the property as they have made 7 errors in just over 7 months which is unacceptable especially as I am paying for the "Service" (areas of mistakes include communication,...

      Check your agreement with the agent - they're usually hard to shift while a tenant they're found is in situ.

      There's not one place which will do this for you I'm afraid.

      Allagents.co.uk is a review site for agents but it's completely unregulated, anyone can leave a review on there regardless of whether they've ever done any business with an agent or not. What you'll tend to find is that rival...
