Letting Agent BishopbriggsSeptember 28, 2015 9:16 am
A letting agent might sound like an expensive service that isn’t needed for a landlord who has just one property but when examining the services that can be offered by these companies, it might be a surprise. Letting agents around Bishopbriggs also offer different levels of service meaning that landlords can employ the agent to do what they need them to and limit their costs in that way.
The basic level of service is often termed as Let Only Properties. This will involve a free appraisal of the property then marketing and advertising across a range of major internet portals. The agent will accompany the potential tenants on viewings and then sort the comprehensive references required. They will also draw up the tenancy agreement and any other legal matters while notifying the local authority and utilities companies of the person responsible for the bills.
A Managed Property option will include all of these services as well as putting in place any rental protection policies the landlord requires and then collecting the monthly rent, transferring it to the landlord as stipulated. They will also manage issues such as energy performance certificates and gas and electric checks to ensure all legal matters are complied with. They can even inspect the property at regular intervals and manage any insurance claims.
