Evaluation & Advice
We will visit your property and make a professional rental assessment? free?of charge. Location, size, condition and demand for your property type are all taken into consideration. We can do this with or without you in attendance - the choice is yours. We will discuss the rent you hope to achieve and any special condition you wish to apply. These include whether you will allow children, pets, smokers and so forth - and the length of time you wish to rent out the property. The rent quoted will be the best market rent for that particular property. We will explain your responsibility as a landlord to third parties when your property is let. Then you must advise your mortgage lender, insurance company and, if the property is an apartment, the freeholder.
Your property must be in good decorative order and we will advise you of any cosmetic work required to help achieve its full rental potential. Any works required prior to letting should be completed before the property is shown to prospective tenants. A property in good condition will achieve a better rental figure and generally will be well maintained by the tenants.Your legal rights are the same whether you are letting your property furnished or unfurnished. If necessary we can advise you on which items you leave in your property.
Effective marketing is key to our success and all properties are promoted throughout our network of offices. Our database can match a suitable property to an applicant's particular requirements. We also enjoy excellent relations with the corporate and professional sectors with regard to staff relocations and view properties with prospective tenants in mind. We discuss prospective tenants requirements with them and then make arrangements to view selected properties with one of our staff.
Viewings will be accompanied by an experienced member of staff who will meet prospective tenants at a time of their choosing. All key feedback will be quickly conveyed back to you. As part of our service, we will secure bank and employers references from suitable tenants.
Our tenancy agreement has been drawn up to protect your rights and interests. It complies with legal requirements. Special conditions can be included in the lease agreement and whilst DNG have their own conditions, individual landlords are invited to include special points that may be pertinent to their property.In general the tenants pay one month's rent and one month's security deposit on the signing of the lease. After the deduction of fees and outlays, we will send you a balancing statement. It is the landlord's responsibility to hold the security deposit and return it to the tenants at the end of their tenancy agreement or when they vacate the property. If required, we will ask the tenants to complete a standing order with your bank for future rental payments.
