We offer a clear and concise fee structure for landlords with the majority either looking for a fully managed service or a more basic tenant find/letting only service. We are happy to discuss any particular service that suits a landlord, for example someone may wish to have a rent collection service by the agent but the landlord carry out their own maintenance work etc. We are happy to discuss these matters on an individual basis.

End of tenancy check-out service

Where properties are fully managed we carry out a final check and inspection when tenancies come to an end. This service is not included within the standard tenant find/letting only service, nonetheless we recommend landlords consider using this at the end of a tenancy. Generally when a tenant gives notice to vacate their home we are happy to provide a pre-end of tenancy check in order to discuss a property’s condition and what tasks need to be undertaken before it can be handed back. This service is designed to ensure a clean, tidy and well-presented property for the landlord and to help the tenant lose none of their deposit through damage or dilapidations. 

Once the property has been vacated, cleaned and ready for handover a final inspection can be carried out. Tenants are always anxious to have their deposit returned at the end of a tenancy and deposits cannot be released from the DPS without confirmation from both the tenant and ourselves. An end of tenancy inspection will generally cover the following points:

  • Final check and inspection of the property comparing its condition against the ingoing inventory
  • Ensure the property is left clean and tidy as per details in the tenancy agreement and guide notes listen in the inventory/schedule of condition
  • Address any issues with the tenant which may result in deductions from the deposit
  • Deal with the release of tenants deposit from the DPS
  • Take final meter readings and notify utility companies in order to close down tenant accounts
  • Obtain forwarding address for tenants
  • Report to landlord

Fees:
£108 (£90 + VAT) for non-disputed deposit.
£180 (£150 + VAT) for deposit in dispute.
