The key to a successful letting is securing the right Tenant. We can only be confident that this is the case if we know both the credit history and the employment status of the Tenant. We use a well established referencing agency called Let Alliance to undertake this important task. They go beyond the basic checks and are commissioned to provide us with the information required.
In partnership with Let Alliance, we also offer a tenant eviction service which includes the cost of all legal expenses. Price on application.
All landlords are required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) produced for each property they market and let out. This report is carried out by a Domestic Energy Assessor and involves investigating the construction of the property, heating systems and insulation and energy-saving aspects of the property. The property is then given a rating, along with any suitable recommendations which may affect the energy rating in the future. Once complete, the EPC is valid for ten years. From April 2018 it is illegal to let a property is the EPC does not meet a minimum rating of E.
Martin Holden and Will Prescott are qualified as Domestic Energy Assessors an can carry out these reports at your convenience. The cost of this service is £65 plus VAT.
Since the 6th April 2007, all Landlords and Letting agents collecting deposits must safeguard them with a Government Authorised Scheme. Holden and Prescott is a member of the The Deposit Protection Service and as such can meet your legal obligations when collecting any deposit. This is your protection against loss or damage to the property during the Tenancy which is deemed more than ‘wear and tear’. If the deposit is not registered with one of the 3 government backed schemes The tenant can raise an action against the landlord and ask the court to award the tenant between one and three times the value of the deposit. Non-compliance with deposit protection can also affect the landlord's ability to end a tenancy using a Section 21 notice.
