A better way to let your property.
We sweat the details so you don't have to.
We are your local letting agent
We are local, know the area and have an attention for detail. Our reputation is built on our professionalism, reliability and the personal touch you would expect from a family run independent letting agent.
All areas covered
Our office is located in a central town centre location and we cover all areas of Sutton Coldfield including Erdington.
No hidden fees
No have hidden fees or service 'add-on' and if we don't let your property there is nothing to pay! Our Landlord Charges are broken down into what each service provides and clearly show our charges are.
More included as standard
Whether it's Tenant Find Only to Fully Managed, our comparable service typically includes more as standard than other letting agents.
Pictures speak a thousand words which is why our inventories typically contain a large number of photos to accurately show the condition of the property before the tenancy begins.
The legal stuff
We draw up the tenancy agreement along with any guarantor agreement if required. In addition we can arrange any Gas Safe inspections, Energy Performance Certificates or Electrical Inspection Condition Reports on your behalf before the tenancy starts.
Frequently asked questions
- Do I need permission to let my property?
- If you have a mortgage on the property, the mortgage lender must be advised and their consent obtained. If the property is Leasehold the Freeholder’s consent must also be obtained. If it is a flat, the Managing Agents should be advised.
- What about insurance?
- You should advise your insurance company regarding the Buildings and Contents Insurance. You will require buildings insurance for the property and if the property is let part furnished or furnished you will require contents insurance.
- What is the situation regarding Tax?
- Income from letting is treated by the Inland Revenue as income and you must declare it. If you reside overseas we are obliged by law to deduct and hold tax at source until final assessment is agreed. It is advisable to contact your tax office and obtain exemption under the ‘Non-Resident Landlord Scheme’.
- Are deposits taken from tenants?
- Yes. From June 2019 the maximum deposit we can take is the equivalent to 5 weeks rent. It is returned to the Tenants at the end of the tenancy provided they have fulfilled their obligations under the terms of the tenancy agreement.
- Who holds the deposit?
- If we manage the property, we place the deposit in a segregated client’s deposit account. The deposit is held under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme regulations. We are obliged by law to advise you that the landlord is ultimately responsible for the return of the deposit if the agent acts fraudulently or becomes insolvent.
