What To Ask A Letting Agent 

Choosing a letting agent is an important task in the landlord world. They oversee important tasks like chasing payments, confirming tenancies and acting as a helping hand when you need one. 

If you’re a first-time landlord, lettings agents in St Helens will guide you through the legalities of renting out a property. With their expert knowledge, they will give you guidance and support to ensure everything runs smoothly.

For those of you who have been in the business for a while, letting agents can take off some of the pressure and give you the time to focus on expanding your portfolio. 

But how do you find the right one for you?

Here is a list of three questions you should ask when meeting up with potential letting agents in St Helens.

 

  1. What will be included in the cost?

What you get from your letting agent depends on the package you choose. 

If you decide to go with the letting agents at EasyLet Residential, there are two options you can choose from:

‘Let only’ means you will have someone to accompany you to viewings, complete checks on potential tenants and prepare tenancy agreements. All paperwork will be completed for you, so you can focus on enhancing your current properties and building trusting relationships with tenants. 

A ‘full management’ package does what it says on the tin. All aspects of renting out a property are covered, including everything in the ‘let only’ package and more. 

Our letting agents in St Helens will get in touch with the local council, collect payments and arrange tradespeople for any maintenance issues. This is the option for you if you have multiple properties and don’t have time to schedule repairs, viewings or rental evaluations. 

 

  1. Have you worked with landlords in the past?

It’s a good idea to support up and coming letting agents in St Helens, but you also need someone who knows what they’re doing. 

If you’re putting the success of your rental properties in someone else’s hands, you want to be able to trust them. Fortunately, the EasyLet team has gained vast experience from working with every type of landlord, from those who are just getting started to experts in the field. 

 

  1. Will I have access to regular contact with you?

Having a contact number or email you can use for your letting agent is a huge factor in the success of your professional relationship. 

You want to be able to pick up the phone whenever you have an issue or need some advice on running one of your properties. Being able to get in touch with your letting agent when you need them gives you the peace of mind that you have regular guidance and, most of all, value for money.
