Thank you for your enquiry regarding the facilities available from: Lind Letting Ltd. We hope the following information proves to be both helpful and informative.
The first step is to send a Company Representative to your property to enable us to offer you an accurate assessment on the rental value of your house/flat & take pictures for advertising the property.
The next step is to advertise the property. Besides advertising on our own website, we also advertise through Rightmove, On the Market, Citylets and various smaller sites. We also advertise through our window & garden signs.
The most important aspect to leasing a flat is to find a good tenant who will respect your property as his or her own. Therefore, it goes without saying that each perspective tenant will be thoroughly vetted. A credit check will be carried out aswell as references being taken from employers, their banks and also their previous landlords where possible.
When a suitable tenant is found we will compile a full inventory and subsequently prepare the lease. Meter readings will also be taken on date of entry.
We will also ensure that the gas, electricity & council tax bills are changed into the new tenant’s names on entry to the property.
The rent is normally paid on a monthly basis; we will then pay the money directly into your bank account.
Problems do sometimes arise; however, you can feel rest assured that we have a wide variety of tradesmen to sort out any problems. We will simply give you a call with a quotation for the job, if you prefer, you are free to use your own tradesmen.
