Frequently Asked Questions

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 occupant within the quickest possible time.

What type of occupant can I expect to be staying in my property?

The vast majority of short let occupants come through our Corporate Services department and are therefore very often professionals working on short term projects in the area. We also see demand from large insurance companies looking for short term stays while people’s homes are being put right after a fire, leak etc. Additionally, we do get demand from people looking for short term accommodation while visiting their families in the area.

When will I receive my rent?

Hamptons International will endeavour to transfer the full amount, less our fees to the landlord within five working days of receipt.

How can I trust that the occupant 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 occupants and we thoroughly check passports and visas. A deposit is usually paid by the occupant and held by the agent against any damages or dilapidations. One of the more challenging aspects of the landlord and occupant relationship is agreeing what should be deducted from the deposit at the end of the occupancy. We strongly recommend that a professional inventory is prepared for the property. An inventory check-in report should then be completed when the occupants take possession of the property and an inventory check-out report should be drawn up when the occupant leave. This gives a thorough account of any changes during the occupancy. If Hamptons International manage your property we put a useful distance between you and the occupant whilst we carry out negotiations on your behalf.
