Lettings Process

Having an empty property can be stressful. In order to maximise the return on your investment you need to act fast to find a reliable tenant who will pay the best price. Here are some key steps to reaching this goal.

Accurate valuation

Our expert valuers carry out hundreds of valuations every month giving us intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values in your area. This is why we consistently achieve the asking price across all our clients' properties. Call us on 0121 773 5500 or register your property online.

Choosing an agent

When choosing an agent consider what kind of marketing your property will receive, what type of property management service is being offered and what type of infrastructure is in place. These are critical to obtaining the maximum price for your property. And we at Midland Housing Ltd advertise on all the major property portals inclusive of Righmove.com. We also advertise via local press maximising all exposure to your property.

Maximum exposure

When you instruct Midland Housing Ltd to let your property you will automatically benefit from our unrivalled, comprehensive marketing package. Our team of valuers will arrange to view your property immediately, take colour photographs and have them live on our website and all the relevant industry portals within 24 hours, alongside local information, location maps, aerial views and a printable colour brochure.

Safety regulations 

As a landlord, you have an obligation to ensure that your property complies with all the necessary regulations covering the safety of gas appliances, electrical installations and any furnishings supplied for the tenancy. We can advise you on this and arrange the necessary inspections. For information regarding the property lettings regulations please contact us.

Viewings 

To maximise viewing opportunities, Midland Housing Ltd is flexible to meet tenants requirements. Industry professionals, who have a number of years of lettings experience, conduct all of our views one to one with our tenants making sure a fully catered for and professional viewing is carried forward.

A suitable tenant 

Once a suitable tenant has been found, we will apply for references on your behalf. If the tenant proves to be acceptable, we then proceed to the next stage. We have hundreds of high calibre private and corporate tenants and we work with large corporations, finding homes for their key personnel.

Property Management 

Many tenants, especially corporate tenants, prefer to rent managed properties. Instructing Midland Housing ltd to manage your property guarantees round-the-clock care for both your property and your tenant. After finding you a tenant, we take care of both them and you throughout the tenancy, including everything from collecting rent and handling all administration to assistance with more complex issues and the provision of a 24-hour emergency maintenance Team.

Rental paperwork 

Tenancy agreement - To achieve a smooth running tenancy it is essential to have a professional agreement in place. We will draw up the relevant paperwork based on years of experience, ensuring all the necessary documents are signed by both parties.

Inventory

An inventory of the contents and condition of the property is usually produced prior to commencement of the tenancy. This will be supplied to both landlord and tenant.

Notices

When required we have qualified members of staff dealing with repossessions, legal notices and court orders.

Rent and deposit 

Midland Housing Ltd will collect the rent on your behalf and a deposit from the tenant.

Completion 

Unless your property is let on a short let basis, you need to ensure letters are sent out transferring the utilities into the name of your tenant and keys are handed over. Because we offer a hassle free let we will have all this completed ensuring you are happy with all of our services.

Congratulations, your property is now let!

Managing your property

Only you know how much time you can spare to deal with your tenant's telephone calls and the resulting work. Our comprehensive Property Management service is designed to give you peace of mind and relieve you of the commitment of being a full-time landlord, which is why we look after hundreds of properties on behalf of our clients.

Tenants prefer Managed

These days more and more tenants request managed properties as it allows a more professional service, removing the emotion from both sides. Our Property Management package includes services such as collecting rent, handling administration as well as assistance with more complex issues and the provision of a 24-hour emergency helpline.
