Letting Fees Explained - What Do They Cover?

 

Fairview Estates was voted the best Nottingham letting agency in both 2013 and 2014. One of the reasons we’re so acclaimed is that, considering the excellent service we deliver, our letting fees are highly reasonable.

If you are a landlord with property to let, it is essential that you enlist the services of a registered letting agency. With our marketing expertise, we can help you to find suitable tenants for your property. With our stringent screening processes, you can rest assured that your tenants can be trusted to pay the rent, and to treat your property with respect. Finally, with our professional advice, we can help you to ensure that you satisfy all of your legal obligations as a landlord.

At Fairview Estates, we offer landlords a choice of three letting plans. Each plan includes a full property valuation, including advice on how much you should be charging for rent, and whether any work is required before your property is suitable for the letting market.

 

Which Letting Plan is Right for You?

Our Let Only plan costs just £295, and it includes everything you need to ensure that your property is let to suitable tenants, and that you receive the rent to which you are entitled. We will take the sort of high quality, professional photos of your property that we know will appeal to prospective tenants, before undertaking a thorough and extensive marketing campaign, arranging accompanied viewings for any who express an interest.

We will undertake reference and ID checks in order to prevent any unscrupulous or unreliable tenants from renting your property, before drawing up a legal tenancy agreement that prioritises your rights as a landlord. In short, with our let only plan you are guaranteed to find suitable and trustworthy tenants. However, you will be wholly responsible for collecting rent and managing your property.

If you want help in collecting rent, our Rent Collect plan costs 7% of the total rent over the course of the tenancy. On top of all the services included in the let only plan, we will collect all rent payments on your behalf, with 24/7 access to online statements to help you keep a tab of your income.

 

Full Property Management – Because Being a Landlord Shouldn’t Be Hard Work!

Our Managed Plan costs 10% of the total rent over the course of the tenancy, and is designed to make your life as a landlord as convenient and stress-free as possible. It’s thanks to our Managed Plan that we regularly receive five star reviews from our customers.

On top of all the services included in the Let Only and Rent Collect plans, we will conduct periodic property inspections and issue safety inspection reminders to help you fulfil your legal obligations. In addition, we will manage utility transfers, before undertaking the many complex tasks that arise at the end of the tenancy. We also offer a keyholding service, and 24 hour maintenance call outs.
