The Rental Process

STEP 1:

Property Valuation

Request a free rental appraisal and Quarters of Leeds will provide you with a complimentary marketing analysis report to illustrate similar properties that have rented recently in the neighbourhood.

We aim to let your property at the best possible price in the quickest time possible.

STEP 2:

Instruct Management

Landlords occasionally have the misconception that it is cheaper to self manage their property. Quarters of Leeds is a letting agent managed by landlords for landlords; therefore, we know the value and benefit of using the services of a letting agent.

Quarters of Leeds can ensure a faster let to reduce void periods, provide rent collection services that reduces arrears and understand both tenant and landlord responsibilities to reduce maintenance costs. Our knowledge in these areas provides a cost effective service that is overall less expensive than self management.

STEP 3:

Market Property

The presentation of your property is vital to a successful let, first impressions count. Consider addressing any maintenance requirements, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to de-clutter to make rooms appear larger.

Quarters of Leeds receive many tenant enquiries on a daily basis and therefore can market your property to a large database of tenants actively looking for a similar property to let along with established relationships with local companies and relocation agencies.

Along with our own website we subscribe to the number one property advertising portal, Rightmove together with Gumtree, Spareroom.co.uk and EasyRoommate.com. Social media allows us to be much more connected with our applicants and tenants and we utilise Facebook to market properties and provide up to date news, events and latest deals.

STEP 4:

Conduct Viewings

Quarters of Leeds organise viewings that are at convenient times for the tenant and available both evenings and weekends to ensure a quick and efficient let of the landlord’s property.

STEP 5:

Tenancy Application

We conduct a thorough application process that includes full referencing on all tenants and guarantors. We use a reputable company to carry out full credit history checks, and carry out the stability and affordability assessments in-house.

The landlord has final authority on the application approval and Quarters of Leeds will provide you with an honest straight talking appraisal of the prospective tenant to ensure the landlord can make the appropriate decisions.

STEP 6:

Check-in

On the landlord’s approval of the proposed tenant, Quarters of Leeds will ensure that all relevant paperwork such as the tenancy agreement, guarantor agreements and standing order are completed appropriately.

Inventories are an important aspect of any property letting and we instruct an independent inventory clerk to prepare a thorough documentary record of the property condition. The inventory is a very important document and can often be vital in deciding how much of the security deposit the tenant has returned at the end of their tenancy.

Managing the Property

The rent is collected in line with the agreed date in the tenancy agreement and Quarters of Leeds process landlord payments every Monday. You, as landlord will be provided with a regular statement giving details of all transactions in relation to the property. Landlords also have the opportunity to view the status of their property in real time by viewing the property accounts online.
