Our letting services
Here you will find our guide to services available through Staffordshire Knot Estate Agents. Our lettings and property management team cover Newcastle-under-Lyme, the Staffordshire Moorlands and Stoke-on-Trent
We provide a comprehensive range of property marketing, letting, and management services, all designed to streamline the letting process and optimise your rental returns whilst giving you the added extra that you get to pick a charity for us to financially support.
Property valuation and due diligence
A free, no obligation appraisal
We will visit your property and provide you with detailed advice on the lettings process and an accurate rental valuation based on prevailing market conditions.
Legislation and registration
We will work with you to ensure that you are compliant with all current legislative requirements and that you are properly registered as a landlord.
Insurance, finance and taxation
If required, we will ensure that your insurance, financing, and taxation affairs are all in order. Our contacts mean that we can provide you with preferential rates and bespoke financial deals.
Safety and compliance
Your Property Manager will guide you through the various safety and compliance measures you must consider when letting your property
Marketing and viewings
How your property is presented can make a significant difference to the level of interest it receives. We will provide you with detailed advice on how to present your property so it appeals to the widest possible pool of prospective tenants.
Upon instruction, we will launch your property onto the market using a suite of high-quality images and detailed, persuasive marketing copy. We will make full use of the Staffordshire Knot Estate Agents website and our network of associated online property portals.
Targeting potential tenants
We will use our database of registered applicants and corporate relocation agents to ensure that your property is seen by prospective tenants who have expressed a strong interest in your type of let.
We will carry out fully accompanied viewings on your behalf. Our experienced staff will be available to show your property six days a week and in the evenings (depending on your chosen service level and property location).
We are proactive in our nature and actually start contacting our tenants inside the last three months of their tenancy to establish their intentions. As soon as a current tenant notifies us of their intention to vacate, we will re-launch your property to the market at a revised rent level subject to your approval. This will be done to minimise any potential void periods and maximise your returns.
Final inventory inspection and report
When a tenant vacates your property, we will carry out a final inventory inspection. We will then produce a detailed checkout report with accompanying images. This will identify areas of liability for which a deposit deduction can be sought.
Assessment and referencing
Finding good tenants is one of the most important parts of the entire lettings process. Your Property Manager will personally assess all prospective tenants and use a specialist referencing agency to carry out rigorous suitability checks.
Once tenants have been selected, we will collect a deposit and ensure that this is transferred to an approved tenancy deposit scheme, where it will be held for the duration of the tenancy.
We will draw up a tenancy agreement appropriate for your tenancy type and duration. This will be duly served along with all required notices. These will be signed by Staffordshire Knot Estate Agents on your behalf if required.
Inventory and schedule of condition
We will prepare a detailed inventory of contents and a schedule of condition. These will be sent to the tenant. They will be in a format that can be submitted as evidence should any disputes over damage liability arise.
We will collect the rent on your behalf each month and transfer it directly to your chosen account month end. You will receive a detailed monthly statement of account by email. We will ensure that all rent payment issues are identified and dealt with immediately.
Ongoing management and inspections
We will ensure that all safety and compliance testing is current and that all maintenance issues are dealt with promptly. Your Property Manager will carry out regular property inspections and work proactively to enhance the value of your assets.
Your Property Manager will use their expert knowledge of your property and the market to negotiate annual rent reviews on your behalf. We will ensure that you get the optimal balance between financial returns and tenancy duration.
