Ready when you are
At the start of the process, the landlord needs to provide us with a few simple details about the property and make an appointment for an ARLA qualified lettings agent to visit the property.
Your dedicated agent will then prepare market research around recent rents received for similar properties and discuss specific requirements including the type of tenants you want to house, is the property furnished or not? Will smoking and pets be allowed?
We maintain only the highest standards in the industry and constantly strive to streamline our renting service. Harvey Victoria is a member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and we are signed up to ARLA’s Code of Practice.
Presentation is Key
In order to appeal to the largest amount of potential tenants, we always recommend it to be finished to a high standard.
Your dedicated agent will be able to advise you on the best way to maximise the potential of the property, including getting it cleaned, or touching up paint work. If unfurnished, bringing in furniture can really make it feel more homely. If you are looking to rent your property furnished, we recommend a neutral/modern style, it also must be in line with current legislation.
We can also deal with obtaining Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and gas safety certificates, which are mandatory.
We will outline a marketing strategy tailored to your needs and what we feel will work best.
Statistics show 90% of tenants now search online for places to rent. This is why we will, without question advertise your property on the major property portals as well as contacting our vetted database in the hope of finding an instant match.
All viewings will be conducted by professional letting agents, who will help with any queries you may have and will handle negotiations for maximum rent achievable. Harvey Victoria thoroughly references each potential tenant, leaving nothing to chance. We will prepare the Shorthold Tenancy Agreement (AST) including any specific requirements you may have.
Taking care of the admin
We by default will manage all the administrative details, including taking and holding the deposit under the Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS), in line with current legislation.
We are constantly striving to streamline the rental process for both our landlord and tenants alike. Landlords and tenants can now sign documents without even leaving the comfort of their own home.
