Property Letting Agents
When you are looking at a letting agent serving Renfrew, you may look at the services they provide to you the landlord. But one of the best ways to judge a letting agent is by the services they offer to both you and the tenant. In fact, talking to the letting agent as a tenant can be a good (if a little sneaky) way to see what kind of service they offer.
Once you feel that you understand both sides of the service offered by the agent, then you can talk to them about what they can do for you as a landlord. There are a number of reasons why a letting agent can be a crucial part of being a successful landlord. These range from their ability to find tenants, therefore securing your income, to managing the property for you if you live far away.
Letting agents will provide a terms and conditions before you sign anything and these can be a little comprehensive, so don’t feel afraid to check these out with a legal professional to make sure you understand them all. Then ask them to go through what they will be doing if they are managing the property. Do they collect rent? Organise servicing? Find a new tenant if the current one leaves?
Another element to watch for is what they provide you to prove the work they have done. This can be anything from receipts for work carried out to photos of a regular inspection. That way you can see they are doing what is agreed and have a record of what is happening with the property.
