More about our letting service
High Quality Marketing
We go to a lot of effort to ensure quality marketing is produced for every property including floorplans and professional photography to help it stand out from the crowd.
Your property will be marketed using the best platforms available. We currently advertise every lettings property to our database of applicants as well as a print advertising in our office windows and online listings on our own website, Zoopla & Rightmove.
Finding A Tenant
Finding the right kind of tenant is important for a smooth let. Stanford Estates are here to advise you on the suitability of tenants for your property and discuss the details of any offers.
Don't just take our word for tenant suitability; we have an out-sourced stringent referencing process where the potential tenants will be credited checked at the address on the electoral role, have their employment verified, be asked to provide a reference from their current landlord and have to satisfy the affordability criteria.
Our tenancy agreements are updated periodically inline with the changes to legislation, they are included in with our letting fee so you can rest assured your tenants will be signing the most up-to-date, legally binding contract and it's all part of the service.
Third Party Arrangement
Our team are more than happy to organise basic third party contractors as part of the service. Whether the property needs a quick clean, gas safety certificate or inventory to be organised, our property management dept. are on hand to help get the property ready for your tenants to move in.
Set Up Payments
The contract will specify the bank details of the account the tenants need to pay their rent into, however, we go one step further and ask the tenants to fill in a standing order mandate with their bank details to avoid any delays in receiving your monthly rent.
Key Hand Over
So your tenants have passed referencing, signed their contract, paid their move in monies and it is the day the contract begins and you are unavailable. Don't worry, we will organise for the tenants to meet in the office to collect their move in pack and hand over the keys to their new home.
Here's a few examples of what our current clients have to say
We were really impressed with Stanford from beginning to end. Their attitude and approach is really different to other agents we have experienced. You feel like you can have honest conversations with them and aren't getting a hard sell constantly. It was hugely refreshing.
I have just let out my property through Stanford Estates Forest Hill Branch. A very pleasant, hassle free experience. They couldn't have been more helpful. I would highly recommend!
Stanford Estates were fantastic in letting out my flat. This was the first time i'd let out a flat and they made the whole process very painless for me. They both responded very quickly to any questions I had, always showed up exactly on time, and were very professional when showing people around. The pictures of my flat were taken one weekend, it went online on their website and Rightmove in the week, and was let that week. I would highly recommend Stanford Estates
