Tenant Find

With this service we will carry out the following:

  • Produce details on your property including interior pictures and 360 degree virtual tours.
  • We will advertise your property extensively via websites.
  • Call all our registered potential Tenants that match your property
  • We will erect a To Let Board at the property to maximise the interest in it.
  • All of our viewings are fully accompanied to ensure we correctly match potential Tenants to your property.
  • When you have given your approval of the Tenant, we will then conduct full independent reference checks with FCC Paragon prior to offering the Tenants an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement.
  • Once references are completed and the potential Tenant has successfully passed the reference checks, we will confirm a tenancy start date and check the Tenant into the property.
  • Arrange for an independent inventory clerk to meet the Tenant for signing of the inventory/schedule of condition.
  • Protect the Tenants deposit with The Deposit Protection Service and give the Tenant(s) all relevant documentation.
  • Set up a standing order for the rent to be paid directly into the Landlord's bank account.
  • Take meter readings at the commencement of the tenancy and inform utility companies of a change of occupier/s.

Thereafter the landlord shall assume full responsibility for the day-to-day management of the property.

At the end of the fixed term tenancy, if the landlord wishes to renew the tenancy for a further fixed term tenancy with the current Tenant, Ashford Lettings will charge the landlord a tenancy renewal fee to cover administration costs. If the Tenant or Landlord does not wish to renew and the Landlord requires Ashford Lettings to find new Tenants, then our initial set up fee will apply.

Fully Managed

With this service, we undertake all of the Tenant Find Service and Rent Collection Service and the following:

  • We will arrange any maintenance issues on your property for you. We will act on the Landlords behalf to identify any maintenance issues and liaise with the Landlord to arrange the repairs.
  • Out of hour's emergency contact for all tenants and landlords after office hours for all properties that are fully managed by Ashford Lettings.
  • We will carry out regular routine inspections on the property
  • At the end of the fixed term tenancy, if the landlord wishes to renew the tenancy for a further fixed term tenancy with the current Tenant, Ashford Lettings will NOT charge the landlord a tenancy renewal fee.

If the Tenant or Landlord does not wish to extend and the Landlord requires Ashford Lettings to find new Tenants, then our initial set up fee will apply.
