Letting Guide

Why use Alexanders for letting your property?

Our aim is to achieve the best possible price for our clients, while providing an ethical, efficient service of the highest possible quality, in a friendly yet professional manner. We can provide our landlords a Rent Guarantee policy which covers legal expenses and unpaid rent, should the tenant default.

How do we achieve this?

We produce full particulars of all our properties and they feature regularly in our window displays. All properties are featured on our website, which is updated daily. It has links from all the major search engines including:
  • Zoopla
  • Zoopla
  • Rightmove
  • GumTree
  • Onthemarket
  • Boomin
We recommend putting up a to let board where possible.
We provide all clients with weekly updates on viewing and offers, at a time to suit you. We can advise you on how to present your property, thereby maximising viewings and promoting a speedy letting.
Our long-standing and continually expanding relationships with major banks and law firms give us access to a wealth of corporate and professional tenants.
Clear communications between you and our negotiators is key to an efficient working relationship.

Our letting service includes:

  • Applying for the necessary financial and/or personal references, which we will submit to you for approval. We can, if you so wish, instruct an outside agency to make a company search or credit report on an individual. Please ask a negotiator for more details. 
  • For short-term tenancies no references are taken, as the tenant is required to pay the entire rent in advance.
  • Preparing the Tenancy Agreement and other statutory forms and arranging for them to be signed and exchanged. 
  • Chasing any rent arrears and keeping you informed of any problems that arise, if we manage the property.
  • Collecting a deposit equal to no less than a months rent against dilapidations. No interest is payable to you on these monies.
  • Pursuing the possible renewal of your tenancy 2 months before expiry in order to minimise void rental periods.
