Generally, our landlords choose one of three main service levels available: Let Only, Rent Collection, Full Management. However, our services can be packaged to suit individual requirements, our negotiators can advise you of the options and how each service can be appropriate.
Reading Estate Agent will give advice and guidance on preparing the property for letting and we will source a suitable tenant by using the numerous marketing methods we employ.
References are then taken and legal documentation drawn up. Finally the initial rent and deposit monies are collected in cleared funds and after we have advised the tenants of their obligations and signed the tenancy agreement we allow them to take possession.
The tenancy is then ‘handed over’ to you or your representative to collect rents and provide a management service to the tenants. At the end of the tenancy we will be happy to prepare renewal agreements or find a new tenant for you.
This service follows the same procedure as with the LET ONLY service. However, Reading Estate Agent will alleviate the responsibility of rent collection. Rental payments will be collected by Reading Estate Agent on a monthly basis and paid over to the landlord along with a monthly statement.
As the landlord, you will still provide a management service to the tenants.
This service also follows the same procedures as with the LET ONLY and RENT COLLECTION service. However, Reading Estate Agent will offer you a complete package including the aforementioned along with:
- We will provide you with a property inspection and report on a biannual basis.
- We will organise repairs and maintenance upon the Landlords authority. (Landlords may prefer to nominate a contractor or allow us to appoint contractors on their behalf.)
- Liaise and organise with both Landlords and Tenants for the renewal of tenancy agreements.
- At the end of the tenancy, we will serve all necessary notices. Check out procedures will be followed and the deposit monies will be apportioned as necessary.
