Why use a Lettings Agent?

Get in touch

Letting your property can be a time consuming, frustrating and sometimes costly process!

It might seem relatively easy to establish an approximate market rental value but knowing who is in the market for a rental property is much harder. One property type or location may lend itself to young couples, another to corporate relocators. One area might have a shortage of flats, another a glut. Knowing the market, as ever, is key. We hold an extensive and up-to-date database of people looking to rent property in the Bracknell area.

The lettings process involves a marketing plan which, nowadays, will almost certainly require representation of the main online internet portals such as RightMove (™). At Duncan Yeardley we will arrange this for you and help organise viewings and undertake the vetting of tenants on your behalf. The quality of your tenant is critical if the letting process is not to become a legal mine field and cautionary tale for others!

At Duncan Yeardley we can supply all the paperwork you will need including credit checks on new tenants, references, detailed inventories, a legally enforceable tenancy agreement and advice on the legal requirements that are now required by law including legislation relating to the holding of tenant’s sureties and things like annual gas checks and inspections. Failure to comply with this legislation is a criminal offence and may result in significant fines, a loss of the right to regain possession or even imprisonment!

We can offer a full property management service, a letting only service or a rent collection service. For full details of our services CLICK HERE.

Letting property is now a significant market in its own right. At Duncan Yeardley we offer professional advice based on decades in the property rental sector.
