What is the best strategy to sell my property?

What is the best strategy to sell my property? There is no point in overpricing a property. It will not attract buyers and will be languishing on the market for months on end. Far better to present the facts as they are and ensure a property sells for the best price it can.

When is the best time for selling my property?

The start of the year has seen us experience a huge surge of interest from buyers; however many are unable to secure a mortgage. We are fortunate that because we are part of a large network we can contact an extensive range of mortgage lenders across the UK. We can also offer up-to-the-minute local advice which is a huge bonus and can make all the difference when trying to secure a dream property.

How can you calculate a monthly rental payment?

The best way to work out the monthly rental payment for a property is to multiply the weekly rent by 52 and divide the total by 12.

What is the Tenant Deposit Protection Scheme?

Your deposit will be protected by the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme.

In line with legislation introduced in April 2007 all deposits being paid by a tenant for an Assured Shorthold Tenancy must be registered with a recognised deposit protection scheme within 14 days.

What references do I need as a tenant?

For a long term let, you will be ask for your Photo ID (Passport or Driving licence) previous landlord’s references, payslip, bank statement and/or character references. In some cases you may need a guarantor to provide documents.

For short term let, you will need to provide 2 proof of address and an national photo ID.

What is Deposit and how to calculate it?

Your landlord will most likely ask you for a deposit as security to cover any damage, theft, unpaid bills or rent arrears at the end of the tenancy. The amount of deposit is normally equal to 6 weeks rent and your agent should acknowledge you about the exact amount. The statement of tenancy terms should contain information about the amount and return of your deposit. Make sure you get a receipt for the deposit.
