    Repairs and Letting Agents

    Does anyone know of a reasonably priced letting agent who is prepared to assist me with repairing the flat prior to letting it. I would arrange this myself but am not based in the area.

    Thanks,

      Obviously a different area to where the property is!

          My apologies- I am very new to this.

          The premises is in Northenden, Manchester.

            Do you mean reasonably priced or reliable as these aren't always the same?

            A cheap letting agent who doesn't undertake good checks on tenants before issuing them with an AST can be counterproductive when the landlord ends up with a poor tenant where they are locked into a long agreement.

            See the info here about how to choose an agent. You should be able to visit the websites to find ones in your area.

            This forum is littered with threads posted by owners who have let to cowboy agents, including landlords finding out that their tenants have a history of eviction and CCjs for rent arrears, who let to the type of groups (students, HB claimants) against instruction. Other crackers have included someone who handed over keys to an agent to value it for market rent and who installed tenants into it before she had actually moved out her own personal belongings, etc.
