Step-by-step for landlords

Your tenants are looking for more than just a place to rent. They are looking for a place to call home. We understand that.

In the UK, letting is a very popular way of making money from property. Whether you are a first-time landlord with a single property, or a seasoned professional with a large portfolio, our unparalleled experience means your property is in very safe hands.

What works for you?

As a landlord, you want to rent your property out as quickly as possible for the best price. You want to avoid empty periods and guarantee a regular income. If you don't want to be bothered with the day-to-day management of the property, we'll sort all that out too.

We have a range of steps below on what to consider when letting your property:

Step 1 - Arrange a valuation

Book a valuation and we will discuss the various services we provide, and the rent you can expect to achieve. At Michael Poole, we’re always honest and realistic with our numbers, to ensure your void period is minimal.

Step 2 - Property preparation & marketing

We will guide you through the process to prepare and make sure your property is presented at its best and we will take care of the marketing to attract the right tenants for you.

Step 3 - Securing a let

We’ll help to source the right tenants for your requirements, and carry out the viewings for you. This means your time is freed up, and if they want to rent your property, we’ll be in touch and take care of the offer process on your behalf.

Step 4 - Tenancy progression

We will carry out comprehensive references, chase all parties involved and ensure your tenancy is prioritised and progressed to a speedy completion to make the whole thing less stressful.

Step 5 - Move in day

We’ll provide your tenants with electronic copies of all the tenancy information, the required certificates and the How to Rent guide.

Once that’s done and dusted, they will receive their check in appointment and hand over the keys.

First time landlord? Not let a property before?

Don’t worry, we have. If you’re feeling daunted by the prospect of becoming a landlord and you’re not sure where to start, a simple conversation with the friendly team here will point you in the right direction.

Step 6 - Overseas landlords

Own a rental property in the UK but live elsewhere? Don’t book your flight just yet. We’ll keep you in the loop on everything to do and help you comply with the Non-Resident Landlords tax scheme too.
