Some tips for Tenants.
Step 1. It is very important to decide what budget you have in order to rent a property. Except, rent payment the tenant is also responsible to pay council, tax, gas, electricity and water bills. You may also have outgoings for paying for internet, telephone and etc. In a very rare rental the mentioned bills are inclusive within the rent. Therefore, we recommend things to be checked before you are coming to view a property to ensure you do not waste your time.
Step 2. It is advisable to figure out location that suits you best as a wrong location may be not convenient for travelling to work, friends, family and etc. A lot of tenants are keen to be within walking distance to tube and have good bus connections. You may also want to be close to a big store for shopping too. These things should be checked while you are considering location.
Step 3. Once the right property has come it is advisable to make an offer as someone else may grab the property prior to you. The rental market is fast moving so we recommend not delaying things once decision is made. You may be requested to put down a holding deposit to secure a rental property once your offer is accepted by the landlord. The holding deposit will normally be deducted from the 1st month rent before your Tenancy starts.
Step 4. Once things are agreed we would suggest following up all the details via email to avoid any misunderstanding at a later stage or after you moved in. Things like furniture, improvements to the property where agreed, having pets should be double followed up in writing where possible.
Step 5. Referencing is quite important part of the process therefore it is recommended the tenant to cooperate fully with the letting agent on this. Once the paper work is obtained we will try to bring an outcome to you within 48 hours. Our referencing fee is £110 inc vat per person. Where you are a student you will normally be asked to provide a guarantor. The fee to reference a guarantour is £50 inc VAT.
Step 6. Once you are accepted as a tenant you will need to clear outstanding rent, deposit and other fees where applicable. The letting agent will not be able to release any keys without cleared funds. Normally, you will receive check in/inventory/list of contents on a commencement of your Tenancy however some property owners may not arrange this. Where landlord arranges and pays for a check in report the cost of check out report will be covered by the Tenant on a departure.
Step 7. As soon as referencing and money matters are settled you will be invited to the office to sign a Tenancy Agreement. You will also get set of keys for your new rental property. Congratulations you are now existing Tenant!
Some tips for Buyers:
Step 1. It is always good to know what you can afford to spend on your dream home. Therefore, it is advisable to get a financial advice before looking for a property. This will help you not to waste your time in finding something that you cannot afford to buy. Where, you have a mortgage offer in principal issued you will have a strong position. The agent will feel confident to work with the buyer who has the financial part prepared in principle rather that with a buyer who does not have their financing in order. Shall you need our assistance on this please let us know.
Step 2. Get an advice on a good solicitor who will do conveyancing once you find a property. The estate agent and vendor will always ask you whether you have lined up one yet during negotiation. We can always recommend you solicitor if you need so please ask for details.
Step 3. Once you decided about the area where you want to buy your home register with local agents and inform them about your needs and requirements. It is advisable to call the agents on regular basis to ensure you are at the forefront of their mind when a new property comes to the market.
Step 4. A lot of buyers are looking for evening and weekend viewings. This might not always be good for the seller. It is advisable to take a day or two off from work to view several properties in one go. If for any reason you cannot attend a viewing do inform the agent. Where you do not show up this may disappoint a vendor who probably went through some efforts to arrange an access and a property.
Step 5. Once your dream home is found it is advisable to view it at different time of the day so you can have a feeling what it feels in there f.e. in the morning and evening. The last thing we want you to be disappointed after your purchase.
Step 6. Since the other buyer may want a property you like it is advisable to contact the estate agent to give an honest feedback and offer where applicable once decision is made. We will then put the offer forward to the seller and revert to you as soon as we have a feedback. The estate agent will normally inform you if there is any chain on vendors end. However, you better double check this before making an offer. Also, it is important to inform the agent about your clear position too. As some vendors may withdraw from the sale if they find out about a chain on your end at a later stage. Once sale price is agreed negotiation is over we will instruct both side solicitors and deal with the matter. We will also keep you always updated with the progress.
Step 7. It is better to arrange a survey of the property as soon as possible. The lender will not issue an official mortgage offer without this. The survey report may also help you to save thousands where the property has a defect and you want to withdraw from the purchase. This is not very often thing but you better keep this in mind during the purchase.
Step 8. Where all legal and finance matters are prepared the contracts then can be exchanged. This would normally be done within 6-8 weeks from the date the solicitors were instructed. On exchange day the seller will normally get 10% of agreed amount. On a date of completion remaining balance should be paid to the seller. Once funds are cleared you can pop in and collect your keys. Congratulations, you are a home owner now!
