The Lettings Process
Getting the process underway for you
Once you have chosen Millerson to let and/or manage your property, you will be asked to sign documents in relation to the rental property and to give your authorisation to us to let and/or manage your property on your behalf. Our fees and terms of engagement will be contained within these documents. We will also require proof that you are the legal owner of the property or are authorised to let it. Then to comply with current legislation we will need to take a copy of your photographic ID, such as a passport or driving licence and we will request a copy of a utility bill to confirm your address. We’ll also go through a short form asking you further questions, which will help us to understand your property even more thoroughly and answer any queries that prospective tenants might have.
You will need to have a current energy performance certificate and a valid landlords gas safety certificate (if applicable). Millerson can arrange these documents on your behalf and will provide you with details of how we ensure you, as our client, are fully compliant with all legislation.
Creating your property details
Our staff will come along to take photographs of your property inside and out and we will also draft a floorplan to advertise with your property. A floorplan is always preferred by tenants. We will request at least two complete sets of keys as one set will be our management keys and will be retained by us in case of emergencies.
Developing interest in your property
As soon as we have the photographs and full details of your property, we will upload it to our system which will in turn upload the details to our website, Rightmove and Zoopla. Your property will also be advertised on all social media. In addition to this, your property details will automatically be sent out by email or text to all our registered tenants looking for properties to let within the relevant area and price range.
