Landlord step by step guide

Step 01 – Rental valuation

A rental valuation will take into account a number of factors, which will determine and potentially affect the rent that you can achieve for your property. These can include:

  • The condition of the property internally and externally
  • The type of tenant the property could attract (families, couples, professionals)
  • Furnished/unfurnished
  • The demand for that type of property and general trends in the local area
  • Proximity to local amenities and transport links

Step 02 Select your service level

It is important before you become a landlord that you determine how much involvement you would like to have with the day-to-day running of your property.

When using The Address, you can choose from our three service levels to find the best fit for your personal requirements. We can offer a basic Let Only Service to a more comprehensive Rent Collection Service or choose the Fully Managed Service to make your property investment hassle-free.

Step 03 Market your property

As soon as we receive your instruction, we will prepare your property details, which will include ensuring we obtain all safety certificates, professional photographs and liaise with you to deal with any work that needs to be undertaken prior to viewings.

With online marketing being a vital tool to advertise, we shall ensure we get your property the best exposure through our website, property portals and various social media sites and publications.

Step 04 Viewings

The Address will accompany the prospective tenants on viewings on your behalf however, as a rule of thumb, however if you choose to host the viewing yourself remember to highlight all the good points that aren't immediately obvious, such as friendly neighbours and in-built storage.

Step 05 Negotiating and agreeing an offer

Negotiation
At The Address, we strive to get you the best price, however there may be other factors worth taking into account when deciding on a tenant, such as the outcome of credit and employment references, previous landlord references and income. It is also worth considering the length of time the tenant would like to stay in the property.

Agreeing an offer
Once negotiations have reached a positive conclusion and you are happy to accept an offer, we will work on carrying out all the checks on the prospective tenant and securing the deposit.

Step 06 Reference and credit checks

It is important to run thorough checks on prospective tenants to ensure that your investment will be secure. At The Address, we use strict referencing procedures carried out by independent experts (Rent4Sure) which can give our landlords a comprehensive understanding of the tenants’ personal and financial circumstances, including a check on their employment history, credit worthiness and previous addresses.

Step 07 Signing the tenancy agreement

This document outlines the agreed responsibilities of both parties. It is important that both tenants and landlords take the time to read this carefully before signing the agreement.

Step 08 The inventory

An inventory is a detailed list agreed and signed by both parties itemising the contents and condition of the property at the time of the tenant moving in. The Address uses an Independent Inventory Service to provide a comprehensive list designed to minimise the risk of any dispute over the deposit at the end of the tenancy.

Step 09 Securing the deposit

Once the deposit has been paid in full, the tenant has secured the property. This deposit is held against possible damage to the property which can be checked against the inventory at the end of the tenancy. The Housing Act 2004 protects all parties in this regard as the deposit is now required to be held within a government-approved scheme on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. This scheme offers quicker and easier ways of resolving disputes, without the need for court action.

The Address Management - Rent Guarantee scheme

Many landlords confuse a guaranteed rent scheme with rent guarantee insurance. Signing up to a guaranteed rent scheme is much more than an insurance policy. It is your way to let your property, hassle free and long-term.

At The Address we, in effect, become your tenant for your property. You are guaranteed rent at a competitive market rate for up to 5 years (minimum 2 years), paid straight into your bank account each month. We offer a competitive rate and ensure we keep the property in good condition throughout the lease term.

We carefully select our tenants, focusing on building strong relationships with them, which generally leads to long-term lets.

The clear benefits of signing with us, for landlords, are as follows:

  • No agent fees upfront
  • No viewings carried out by landlords
  • No phone calls for maintenance issues
  • We will give you back the property in the same condition that we acquired it
  • No monthly property management fees
  • No inventory/referencing/tenancy agreement costs
