Step 4: Get the paperwork done
When we have found the right tenants and both you and they have agreed to move in, there is some paperwork that needs to be done before the tenancy can start. We will take care of this and send all the documents to you and your tenants.
We call this stage ‘let agreed’ and it starts with checking credit references. We will request credit checks on your tenants, follow up references and talk you through any potential problems.
Next, we will draw up a tenancy agreement that sets out exactly the terms of your contract with your tenant, including any special requirements you have. We will send you and your tenant copies to sign, all you have to do is check it, sign it and send it back to us before the tenancy starts. We will forward a copy of their signed agreement to you and your signed agreement to the tenant.
Finally an inventory needs to be recorded. The inventory records the contents and condition of your flat or house at the point when your tenants move in. We can arrange this and give you and your tenant a copy of the inventory and schedule of condition. At the end of the tenancy we will do another inspection to check that nothing is missing or damaged.
