IMPORTANT NOTES

Mortgage

If your property is mortgaged you need the mortgagees consent to the letting. They may require additional clauses inserting in the tenancy agreement which you MUST tell us about.

Leaseholds

If you are a leaseholder check the terms of your lease.

The Inventory

It is most important that an inventory of contents and schedule of condition be prepared, in order to avoid misunderstandings or disputes at the end of a tenancy. Without such safeguards it will be impossible for the landlord to prove any loss, damage or significant deterioration of the property or contents. In order to provide a complete service to the landlord, we will arrange for a member of staff to prepare an inventory and schedule of condition.

Energy Performance certification

A property cannot be let without the landlord has this document prepared by a fully qualified Energy Assessor, we can do this for you if you wish and our prices are very low. Please check with us if your property is exempt from this process, this does not apply to property with shared facilities.

The EPC document shows the incoming tenant what the cost of maintaining the services at the building will be and how energy efficient the property is as well as other items. Landlords are required by law to give the incoming tenant a copy of this notice and have them sign for its receipt.

Bonds

If the landlord takes a bond then this money must be deposited into an accredited government scheme and this is included within our full service.
