When you become a BE Let customer, we will arrange a mutual appointment to come out and take pictures of your property, one’s that will show off the property to its best advantage. We will erect property boards and also advertise the property on our own website and Rightmove which will give you the optimum coverage to reach potential tenants. Once we have enough tenants interested, we will make a block booking for a particular day, carryout viewings and handout application forms. When all applications are back and you have decided on a suitable Tenant for the property, we will then proceed to carry out credit checks and referencing, please note there will be an additional charge of £35 to carry out credit checks for each additional tenant who will be residing in the property.
If you would prefer BE Let to choose the tenant for you we can provide this service. Selection of the Tenant will be based on the face to face meeting, references and credit checks. This service will be provided based on our best professional judgement. However, BE Let cannot be held responsible for the actions of any individual or Tenant. Therefore it is the responsibility of the Landlord to ensure that adequate insurance is in place to meet their needs during the course of tenancy. Once a tenant is in situ we will then place their deposit within the 30 day period into the Deposit Protection Scheme and then send you out the details. Please make sure that you read through the paperwork in detail and forward the information to your Tenant in the specified time.
We will collect the first month rental payment and set up a standing order mandate so that all further payments are received directly into your bank account. We will draw up a lease agreement for the tenant and also issue you with our terms and conditions contract for the duration of the tenancy. We will then invoice you 7% of the rental value for each month for the duration of the tenancy. At this stage we will pass the property back to you.
Additional services are available with this package which is where the Bespoke Service comes into play. We can arrange 3 monthly property visits and report back findings or anything of concern, this work will be carried out at an hourly charge of £25. We can arrange for Pre-Tenancy cleaning, window cleaners, gardeners, decorators to give the property a fresh coat of paint. These charges will differ depending on the size of the property and will be quoted individually. No work will be carried out without prior authorisation from yourself.
Be Let cannot stress the importance of having the correct insurance policies in place and also becoming part of the rent guarantee scheme. We have used insurance companies in the past and are happy to pass on their details. However, we are not qualified to advise on or arrange insurance cover.
