What is Better Letting?
Better Letting: Better Being Faster
Property empty? You want it let. With an average turnaround of 23 days, RentLocally lets property faster – about 33% faster than the 39 day market average. Our agents follow an efficient and established lettings process, attracting more enquiries and leading to more tenant viewings. Our custom software enables a speedy but thorough tenancy application and vetting process, meaning your property is empty less and occupied more.
Better Letting: Better Communication
There is no single best form of communication. The trick is to use them all appropriately. RentLocally offers 24/7 support and real people to deal with. All our landlords have a dedicated local property expert; we don’t hide behind call centres, queuing systems or nameless call handlers. For tenants we provide one central contact number and real people answer the phone, even out-of-hours.
Better Letting: Better People
Successful letting depends on the right people with the right attitude. We invest in our people and they work hard to build professional relationships. Our agents are industry professionals with experience and excellent training, who understand the need for trust, respect and good communication. The result? A high level of landlord and tenant satisfaction leading to word-of-mouth referrals.
Better Letting: Better Regular Inspections
The property belongs to the landlord and we never take that for granted. For security, we carry out an initial inspection after 6-8 weeks and then every 3 months during the tenancy. A detailed written report including photos is provided and our inspection process allows us to identify potential concerns before major problems arise. If we do ﬁnd an issue, we also ﬁnd a solution.
Better Letting: Better Property Advertising
Property for let? Better let people know. We advertise our properties widely online, reaching thousands of potential tenants across the UK and globally. We review our online coverage regularly to ensure you achieve the best possible tenant exposure. In addition to online marketing, we provide prominent and eye-catching ‘To-Let’ boards and work with local organisations and blue chip companies to attract good quality tenants.
Better Letting: Better Tenant Selection
Empty property? Better act fast. Letting your property quickly will maximise your rental income and selecting the right tenant is essential. We screen potential tenants thoroughly and waste no time once we have a suitable potential tenant. We aim to process all tenant applications within 3 days, carrying out a comprehensive background check including employer and landlord referencing and a full credit check.
Better Letting: Better Maintenance
Broken? Better ﬁx it. Our trusted maintenance department can save you time, save you money and deliver high quality results. Our repairs team use local contractors who are fully vetted to ensure they meet RentLocally’s high standards. We communicate with you throughout the repairs process and for large jobs we obtain detailed comparative quotes and liaise fully before any work is carried out.
Better Letting: Better Technology
Our efficient, simple and speedy processes are supported by our advanced custom-designed property management software. The online tenancy application process is faster – so your property will spend less time unoccupied. Landlords have real time access to their property information, including advertising statistics, safety certiﬁcation, current and previous tenancies, rental statements and ﬁnancial performance.
Better Letting: Better Financial Performance
Your property is your investment – make it work for you. RentLocally helps landlords to turn property into profit and maximise rental income. We plan for your next tenant before your current tenant leaves by marketing your property and conducting viewings during the last four to six weeks of a tenancy. We collect rents on your behalf and chase unpaid rents promptly. Unlike many competitors, we forward rent to you the day after collection.
Better Letting: Better Being Legal
Legal obligations, certifications and ever-changing regulations – residential property leasing is a legal maze. You can trust our agents to draw up leases and contracts, draft inventories, transfer utility accounts and deal with the various ﬁnancial aspects of letting. We also offer landlords comprehensive guidance on a myriad of legal and regulatory issues, such as landlord registration, insurances, EPCs and safety certiﬁcates.
Better Letting: Better all Round
Our commitment to landlords is to exceed expectations and deliver an efficient, secure, trusted and reliable letting service. This is the essence of Better Letting.
