STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO RENTING

 

Step 1: Start Your Property Search

By web, phone, or in person, our expert Lettings team are ready and excited to search for your ideal property, advise you, and even drive you to view them!

To start your search, you can [click here] to register your interest, or call us on 01480 218200. 

 

Once you have registered your interest, we are able to regularly update you with new properties as soon as they come on the market via email alerts.

Ensure you use an ARLA registered Letting Agent. Here's why:

 

Step 2: Reserving A Property 

Once you’ve found your ideal home, let us know and we can discuss and agree the terms of your tenancy with the Landlord.

We will then need you to undertake a reference check in order to reserve the property – these may include credit checks and personal references – this requires a referencing fee, and will ensure the property is taken off the market. The amount of this fee depends on how many people will be living at the property who require referencing.

Step 3: Signing A Tenancy Agreement

Once you’ve passed your reference checks, we will take a deposit and one month’s rent in advance, whilst also signing your tenancy agreement.

Step 4: Completion

Upon completion, you will be given a set of keys and if your property is managed we will provide you with your Property Manager’s contact details

Step 5: Renewing A Tenancy

We will write to you a couple of months prior to the end date of your tenancy to ask of your intentions - if you would like to extend it, or move out. Once this is known we can take the appropriate course of action.

Step 6: Checking Out

We will undertake a final inventory/inspection at the end of your tenancy, whereby the property is checked for any damage etc.

Step 7: Deposit Refund

Should everything be satisfactory with the inventory/inspection, your deposit will be returned to you


"I would like to thank you and your team for your help during the selling process. At the outset you were able to explain the procedure and point me in the right direction with regard to Solicitors and sorting out the EPC. I felt that the quality of the sales particulars were first class and I have no doubt that they played a big part in securing a sale. Your calm and professional attitude meant that I had no concerns even on moving day when things could have gone wrong with a technical issue at my purchasers Solicitors. The price for all of this was very competitive with no compromise in service. Certainly I would use Lovett Sales and Lettings again and I would recommend to friends and family in the future"
