What do Landlords look for in a Letting Agent?

Our Landlords have listed the following attributes, when searching for a Lettings Agent:-

  • Honesty of Agent with regards to the information provided.
  • Quality of Proposed Tenant and not just let at any cost.
  • Matching the right Property to the right prospective tenant.
  • Realistic rental being asked, not just trying to offer the highest just to impress landlord to gain the instruction of letting the property.

  • Regular checks of the property.
  • Any problems/ issues to be referred to owner as soon as possible.

  • Updating the owner with any new laws or services requirements which they may not be aware of. This is particularly relevant for owners living abroad and first-time landlords.
  • Keeping owners aware of current rates being charged for similar properties so that their rent can be kept in line with other rented properties.
