At Shortland Horne Letting Agents Coventry customer service is our priority. We have received one of the highest volumes of positive reviews on our Google business page and aim to offer the highest quality of service to our landlords and tenants. Our staff are experienced and specialise in different parts of the Letting and Property Management process, with two separate departments. This is because we believe that concentrating on Letting property and arranging maintenance should not be a choice of priority. We do not want our staff to have to choose between spending time arranging viewings and arranging repairs of properties that we manage on behalf of our landlords.
Shortland Horne is pleased to be able to offer landlords a choice of services, therefore providing ﬂexibility together with a choice of competitive fees, depending on budget. The fees quoted below are based on an individual property. In the event of multiple listings discounts can be negotiated. Our fees are totally transparent and listed in full on our Agency Terms.
One of our experienced Lettings staff will meet you at your property to assess a current rental ﬁgure. As with any property, presentation and the standard of ﬁttings are all important, especially when wishing to attract a good quality tenant who will care for and appreciate your home as much as you do.
Once you have made the decision to use our service we can start to proactively market your property.
Once listed we will offer the property to clients who have registered with us previously and advertise the property in office window displays. At your discretion, we can place a ‘To Let’ board at the property to gain maximum exposure.
All viewings will be accompanied by one of our representatives.
The property will be advertised on many online platforms including Rightmove and Zoopla as well as our own highly ranked site.
Once suitable tenants are found we will confirm the information with the landlord. We will check their references thoroughly including credit checks to confirm that the applicant is in a financial position to rent your property. Before the tenancy can begin we will take one month’s rent in advance and a security deposit equal to a minimum of one month’s rent.
Prior to the tenants taking possession of the property, a tenancy agreement will be compiled by us and signed by the tenants. This agreement will usually be a Shorthold assured tenancy for a period of six or twelve months.
Our tenancy agreement is updated constantly in keep with any new legislation making sure that our landlords get maximum protection.
The rent will be collected monthly in advance and will be paid to you less our commission and any costs in respect of repairs.
A statement of your account will be provided by email monthly.
For Landlords who wish to protect their rental income we can purchase a product and note you as having an “interest in “ this policy.
Having an interest in this policy means that you may be able to benefit should a successful claim be made.
We are pleased to conﬁrm our licensed membership
of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA Propertymark) who in guiding the Government on current and future legislation keep us advised of any changes in the industry. All monies held by Shortland Horne Lettings are bonded and registered in the Deposit Protection
Service which is backed by the Government. We are
also a member of the Property Redress Scheme.
An inventory and schedule of condition is made and checked at the start and end of the tenancy.
With the introduction of deposit registration with approved schemes it is imperative that a detailed inventory is compiled and agreed to by the tenants to minimize the potential for disputes when the tenancy ends.
We read meters at the start and end of the tenancy and advise all the appropriate authorities of the change of occupier (please note that we are unable to change services such as telephone providers).
Inspections are made on request, making sure that the tenant is looking after the property in keeping with their tenancy agreement.
As part of our management service all eligible deposits are registered by us in one of the government approved schemes. Not completing this process correctly can invalidate any tenancy agreement and potentially make it very difficult to remove a tenant from a property.
We make sure that legal requirements are met and manage the process from start to finish.
As the tenant has no direct contact with you any maintenance problems are reported to us. We will then make you aware of the problem and give you the option of arranging the repair or authorising us to do so.
We have many specialist trusted contractors and can arrange quotes prior to works being completed.
The ﬁrst step is for one of our experienced staff members to meet you at your property to discuss your plans and advise on the best way to proceed. Advice will be given on marketing price, how best to present your property, marketing and duration of letting. At this time we will discuss with you in detail how we will manage the letting of your property and services we can offer. If you have preferences for the circumstances of the tenant or wish us to consider any limitations e.g. non-smoker, professional couple, no pets etc. We will be happy to work within such parameters.
Our Lettings staff are based in our shop front offices and handle the marketing and letting of properties on behalf of landlords. Our Lettings service starts by us meeting you at your property or in our office, providing a rental valuation and any other advice which you may require about letting your property. We will discuss landlords responsibilities regarding compliance with the various safety regulations and give advice on how to best present and market your property. Once instructed we will start the process of finding suitable tenants. Your property will be advertised on Rightmove, Zoopla and a large number of other online property portals, as well as being advertised in our offices and highly ranked website. Shortland Horne Letting Agents Coventry accompany all viewings with prospective tenants. Once suitable tenants are found we comprehensively reference check the applicants, including a full credit check. When the checks are complete and all parties are happy to proceed Shortland Horne Letting Agents Coventry will draw up the tenancy agreement and arrange payment of the first months rent and deposit.
