Whilst we find our fully managed lettings service the most popular, we also understand that some professional landlords wish to self-manage their rental properties.
If you opt for our tenant find-only service we urge you to be aware of the 170+ pieces of lettings legislation that make up the red tape of the English private rental market.
In particular, understanding your safety obligations is paramount if you plan to manage your rental property without the aid of a managing agent since you have a responsibility to your tenants and can be in hot water if you fail to take care of safety measures when letting a property.
For our tenant-find service, we will use our estate agent’s expertise and knowledge of Bristol’s PRS to ensure that we bring you offers from suitable tenants and that we do not opt for the first choice. This is because the rental market is buoyant and we know that you deserve to achieve the best rental price, have a good tenant who values and takes good care of your property, and who will stay for the length of the tenancy and leave the property in great condition.
Our services can be customised to meet your lettings requirements, and we can find a tenant for your rental property who suits you to the ground. These are some of the services that we will carry out prior to passing over the management of your tenancy once the tenants have moved in.
We will check in with you before listing on matters such as whether you wish your property to let to be a pet-friendly rental and the qualities you are seeking in a tenant. Our agents pride themselves on professionally advertising rentals, finding good quality tenants quickly, and screening them effectively.
We can even sell your investment property when you’re ready, either with vacant possession or with a tenant in place.
Tenant find is a one-off service where a property agent advertises a property and screens tenants on behalf of a landlord. It’s different from an ongoing property management service where the agent will also collect rent, ensure the property meets rental standards, and maintains the property throughout the tenancy.
To find a tenant, you can list a property on letting sites such as Rightmove and local social media groups yourself. You can alternatively hire a property agent to find a tenant on your behalf to advertise the property across different channels and take prospective tenants through the appropriate checks.
You can never be sure whether a prospective tenant will be a good tenant before they move into the property. However, references, screening, and checking they have the financial stability to be able to afford rent can all help you to weed out tenants who may be irresponsible or leave rent arrears. You can find out more about this in our blog.
