Getting the perfect tenant in your buy to let house can be tricky. Sure, you can go by gut instinct and decide based on what you feel is the right person. But if you want a more scientific approach, then handing the job to a letting agent serving Barrhead may be the best option.
Letting agents offer a service called tenant find or non-management. This involves them finding the tenant, interviewing them then collecting relevant information. This can be credit checks as well as references and any other legal documents needed to ensure they are the right person for the job. Due to their experience in the trade, they will also have a better idea about the ‘right’ tenant for your property.
Once that perfect tenant has been found, the letting agent will also set up the tenancy agreement as well as collect the deposit and often the first month’s rent. This is crucial in establishing a correct and legal tenancy to protect both you the landlord and the occupants of your house. Most letting agents will take part in a government scheme to protect this deposit, meaning that when the tenant moves out, you don’t need to find that money to reimburse them because you never received it in the first place. And if something does go wrong and the deposit becomes yours, it is also easy to access.
