We believe lettings is all about relationships whether you are a landlord or someone looking to rent and we will look to make the rental process as smooth and transparent as possible for all concerned.

 

Our contracts are generally fixed term ASSURED SHORTHOLD TENANCIES, normally for 12 months and UK home-owning guarantors are generally required although there are different options available.  Please contact our office to discuss your situation/proposal.

 

Any questions you may have before taking a tenancy we welcome, from either yourselves as the tenant or your guarantor so you are aware of the process and the contract to which you are to enter into.

 

We understand that when you rent a property, that it becomes your home, be you a family/sharer or a student.

 

That being the case you take on a duty of care to maintain the property in good order as per terms of tenancy, to keep it warm and ventilated, for it to be kept clean/tidy, for you to be respectful of your neighbours and to report any issues promptly to your agent or landlord.

 

We will look to deal with your enquiries/issues efficiently and effectively, to do this we ask that all non-emergency issues are emailed to us at lettings@neilsutherland.co.uk so we may process them/ gain landlords instruction to act, for emergency issues ie water through running through ceiling call our office 01273 626268 during office hours or emergency mobile number 07880612021 for out of hours.

 

For GAS LEAK or if you smell gas call 0800 111 999.  National Grid.

 

Getting accurate address details is very important as we want to make sure we send engineers to exactly the right place. You will be asked to verify these details for this very reason. Your address and postcode are particularly important.

You’ll be asked a series of questions designed to help us build a picture of the reported gas escape or gas emergency. From these details, we can identify the right gas safety advice for you – such as:

  • Opening doors and windows
  • Turning the gas off at the meter unless the meter is located in the cellar/basement
  • Avoiding the use of any naked flames or electrical switches

All calls to the National Gas Emergency Service and National Enquiry lines may be recorded and monitored.

 

To renew your tenancy please contact our office as early as possible from the end of your stay, we recommend for family/professional/sharers that you speak with us approx. 3 months before end, for students you will need to notify us by end of January as we will commence viewings for new tenants from February onwards.

 

We hope that you enjoy your stay.

 

For those looking to rent a property be you a student/professional/sharer/family the process is fairly similar.

 

  1. Approach the agent with your group complete and all relevant information to hand to view suitable properties
  2. If you see something you like you will be asked to email our office on lettings@neilsutherland.co.uk to give us an overview of your position, (ie working/family/student) start date you require (if different from date listed) and rent you propose (if different from listed) and if you have guarantor to stand on tenancy or other option available to you.
  3. We will then obtain landlords permission to proceed, if successful your group will need to come into office, sign off on the pre-contract terms, pay the holding deposit + admin fee, give us details of UK home-owning guarantor (where applicable) ONLY THEN IS PROPERTY OFF MARKET.
  4. We will then reference all parties submitted with a professional company, this includes a credit score/check. This process is done online.
  5. After referencing is completed, if all parties pass we will then issue tenancy contract to all parties for signature and request outstanding balance of monies due, along with any outstanding identity documents from tenant/guarantor.
  6. Once the file is completed, ie everything requested is returned and we have cleared funds in our client account we will arrange check in, be advised check in company require 48 hours notice to book you in, if not complete in time you may miss the proposed start date.

 

We keep all landlord and tenant monies in a dedicated client account, we do not have an addtional client money protection scheme.
