Residential Lettings

To Let BoardLandlords

Although, as a landlord, your rental property may just be seen as an income, it is also likely to be one of your biggest assets and it is important that suitable tenants are found. Likewise if you are a prospective tenant, you need to feel happy and secure in your new home.

At Barker Healey Property, every care is taken to match the correct applicants with the correct properties – ensuring a smooth moving in period and an amicable tenancy throughout.

Our aim is to protect the interests of both landlord and tenant alike and in order to do so, we always carry out the following prior to a tenant moving in: –

  • Identification and Credit Check on any prospective tenants;
  • Full referencing from an employer, previous landlord (if applicable) and personal contact;
  • A thorough inventory and set of photographs documenting the condition of the property prior to occupation.
  • Collection of a rental deposit.
  • The setting up of a standing order form for future rental payments.
  • The completion of Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and Deed of Guarantee (if required)

SET UP FEES:

Our set up fee is taken from the first month’s rent once the property is let. The fee is dependent on the level of service required and type of property. The maximum fee will be 85% of the monthly rental income. For example an agreed rent at £550 per calendar month would incur a fee of £467.50 inclusive of VAT.

If you choose Barker Healey Property to manage the property, the monthly management fee will be a maximum of £60 per month inclusive of VAT.

We DO NOT charge anything additional for the ingoing inspection or registration of the deposit with the DPS.

If you have a property to let, are looking for a home to rent or would like any further information about our  Property Management Service please do not hesitate to Contact us.

 

With low fees and a high quality service – what have you got to lose…?

As a prospective tenant, we want to ensure that all your requirements are met – from working within your budget to making sure you are close enough to commute to work, or finding you that sunny garden you’ve been longing for (sun not included unfortunately!). From viewing the property to moving in, you will be kept informed of progress and we will do all we can to make the move to your new home as enjoyable and stress-free as possible! As standard, you will be required to provide the following: –
