Tenancy Agreement Preparation

Sometimes tenants approach Landlords independently or Landlords prefer to do their own advertising.  If you have found a suitable tenant but would like the peace of mind that the tenancy has been set up in a professional manner then this is the service for you.  We can draw up all the necessary documents for you and register the deposit with Tenancy Dispute Service - you will then feel happy that both you and tenant are off on the right track to start with.

Tenant Check

Has a tenant approached you privately to rent your property? Are you provisionally happy with them but would just like to know that little bit ‘extra’ before letting them sign an agreement? The ‘Tenant Check’ service means that we will reference the tenant on your behalf providing a full credit check, employment check and landlord check along with any other details we feel you may need. This package also includes liaison with the Landlord for approval of tenant after referencing prior to any agreement being entered into.  The necessary documents can then be drawn up and the deposit registered with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.  Both landlord and tenant will then know the tenancy has been professionally drawn up.

£100.00 (referencing of tenant charged at £50 per applicant, usually payable by tenant)

Inventory Preparation

Sand and Co Limited always recommend that you draw up a detailed inventory which should include a note of the keys handed over, the condition of the property and meter readings for the tenant (s) to sign on entering into a property.

An inventory is an essential tool that a Landlord can have to ensure the property is left by the tenant in the condition it was found (taking into consideration day to day wear and tear of the property). Employ Sand and Co Limited to prepare your inventory and you can then be assured you have a detailed report on the condition and contents of your property prior to the tenancy and a detailed record to check against on termination of the tenancy.

Due to differing property sizes and contents, inventories are charged on an hourly basis of £40.00

(Example - average size 2 bed terrace property = 1 hour - £40.00 - NO VAT)

Energy Performance Certificates

On the 1st October 2008 a requirement was put in place for all properties being advertised to rent to have an Energy Performance Certificate. This certificate allows prospective tenants the opportunity to review the running costs of a property they may be interested in before making any commitment to apply. This certificate must be commissioned before the property is advertised and has a lifespan of 10 years. At Sand and Co Limited we are able to arrange for the EPC to be carried out on your behalf in order that they are ready for prospective tenants to look at.
