Our Lettings team is highly experienced and qualified with over 15 years of combined experience within the industry. We look after all aspects of lettings and management, providing peace of mind to our customers that they are in safe hands.
When you instruct Your Home Managed to market your property, we will discuss your needs and agree on a marketing price. We will prepare your property's details ready to be displayed with professional photographs and accurate descriptions to attract potential tenants. These details will be advertised on our website and all major property advertising portals.
What you can expect from our Lettings Service:
Consider your mortgage. If you are thinking about letting a property that has previously been occupied by an owner-occupier you will need to inform the current mortgage lender that tenants will be living in the property. In most instances, you will be required to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage.
Consider your local authority. Councils often require to be notified of rented properties, and often landlords are required to pay for a license.
Get specialist landlord insurance, you will not be covered by regular household insurance.
Let your freeholder (if you have one) know that tenants will be living in the property.
Decide if you are going to rent your flat as furnished or unfurnished. We can help you decide.
If you are going to be living overseas apply to HMRC for your Non-Resident Landlord exemption certificate.
This map displays properties we currently Manage or have previously Let.
We cover the whole of London and some surrounding areas.
Through years of experience, we complete extensive research on every property we Let or Manage to ensure the expected rent is accurate to the market, and the property advert displays the most important information about your property and the local area.
If you reside in the property you can decide whether you want us to show your property when you are present, to only do viewings online, or to give us keys to accompany prospective tenants whilst you are away from the property. We will ensure viewings are booked around your required needs and follow all government guidelines. If the property is an tenanted, we liaise with the tenants and provide notices for all viewings accordingly.
All tenants must complete a formal Offer Form confirming their information and offer they are putting forward. As soon as we have received an offer from a prospective tenant, we will put this forward to you to discuss further and when required, negotiate on your behalf. The landlord always has the final say, although we will be assisting you along the way.
A reservation deposit is required when a tenant's offer is accepted on a property. This is not a Tenants Fee. If for any reason the tenant decided not to go ahead with their offer, the reservation deposit will be retained to cover administrative costs already incurred. It will be offset against the first rent and full deposit payments if the tenant proceeds with the tenancy. Paying a reservation deposit does not legally oblige either party to enter the tenancy, however, the reservation deposit is only taken once the tenants offer is accepted by the landlord.
An advance rental payment is required prior to the commencement of the tenancy. This is usually paid once the tenants have passed referencing and signed their tenancy agreement, at least a few days before the move-in date. A deposit is also required from the tenant which will be held under a Tenancy Deposit Scheme until end of the tenancy, and then returned to the tenant subject to the details of the inventory report. Your Home Managed is a member of the Tenancy Deposit scheme for regulated agents (TDS). This is an approved scheme which has been introduced to ensure that tenancy deposits are securely held and any disputes about their return are resolved quickly, cheaply and fairly.
