How long will it take to let my property?
Unfortunately there is no fixed answer to this question. It depends on the prevailing market conditions, the presentation of the property and the asking price amongst other things. Your local office will be happy to advise you on a marketing strategy to bring you the best quality tenant within the quickest possible time.
When will I receive my rent?
Hamptons International will endeavour to transfer rent to the landlord within five working days of receipt. As part of our Standard Lettings Service, Hamptons International will chase rent arrears on your behalf. We also offer a bespoke Rent & Legal Protection Insurance policy should, our landlords require this extra safeguard.
What happens if either the landlord or the tenant wish to end the tenancy early?
This can be done where both parties agree to surrender the tenancy and it may involve financial compensations. However, if the parties do not agree, the only way a landlord can evict their tenant is if they have a court order to this effect.
How can I trust that the tenant will look after my property?
Unfortunately, there is a certain amount of trust involved here. At Hamptons International we take great care to provide our landlords with high calibre tenants and we thoroughly reference them via an external credit referencing agency.
A deposit is usually paid by the tenant and held by the agent against any damages or dilapidations. One of the more challenging aspects of the landlord and tenant relationship is agreeing what should be deducted from the deposit at the end of the tenancy.
We strongly recommend that a professional inventory is prepared for the property. An inventory check-in report should then be completed when the tenants take possession of the property and an inventory check-out report should be drawn up when the tenants leave. This gives a thorough account of any changes during the tenancy. If Hamptons International manage your property we put a useful distance between you and the tenant whilst we carry out negotiations on your behalf.
