The Lettings Process

Our team will guide you every step of the way and ensure that your letting is as smooth and successful as possible. Here is our ten step guide to successful letting

Step 1

Accurate valuation

Your aim should be to let your property at the best possible price and in the timeframe that suits you whilst also ensuring that a quality tenant is secured. Our experienced valuers have an unparalleled knowledge of property values in your area. You can arrange a valuation by calling our offices or completing our valuation booking form.


Step 2

Selecting a letting agent

When choosing a letting agent consider their presence locally and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These are critical to obtaining the maximum exposure and rental value for your property. You should also check if your agent will organise your government-required Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) on your behalf or if you need to arrange this yourself? You are responsible for making this document available to prospective and future tenants when the property is marketed. We can arrange this for you.


Step 3

Property Management

Having your property professionally managed can be the key to reaping maximum rental returns on your property. Many tenants insist on renting managed properties and are often prepared to pay a premium for this.
Instructing Anisten Homes to manage your property gives you peace of mind that both your property and tenant will be cared for 24/7. Our dedicated Property Management team will look after the general day-to- day management and more complex issues such as emergency repairs, collection
of rent, transfer of utilities and much more. Anisten Homes are also able to offer a Guaranteed Rent scheme


Step 4

Presenting your property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful let. Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, adding a fresh coat of paint where necessary, de-clutter to make rooms appear larger and de-personalise so that prospective tenants can more readily visualise themselves living in the property.


Step 5

Preparing your property for tenancy

Before you let your property for the first time you should obtain a professional and comprehensive inventory. This will set out the condition and contents of the property. Anisten Homes will organise a
professional inventory on your behalf.If the property has gas services supplied, a gas safety certificate will be required. First Union will
organise this and any other certificates required.You are responsible for checking that the tenants have set up accounts with utility companies, telephone supplier, council tax and TV licensing. Anisten Homes will, if managing the property, ensure that these items are dealt with.

Step 6

Marketing your property

To find your perfect tenant you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media. When you instruct Anisten Homes to let your property you will automatically benefit from our comprehensive marketing package, including: Huge exposure via our website plus all of the major property portals, full colour property details, display in our well sited office and access to our large database of prospective tenants.


Step 7

Accompanied viewings

Accompanied viewings mean we can use our expertise to help let your property. Our trained staff are available across long hours to ensure no opportunity to show your property is lost.


Step 8

Receiving an offer

As soon as an offer is received we will contact you to communicate full details along with any special conditions to help you decide whether or not to accept.

Step 9

Offer agreed

Once you accept an offer we will do the following, regardless of whether your property is managed:


  • Collect references from the tenants
  • Arrange signing of Tenancy Agreement
  • Collect moving-in payment (rent + deposit)
  • We will arrange the check-in and inventory
  • For your added peace of mind, where applicable, we will register the deposit with a deposit
    protection scheme, resulting in a faster and more efficient deposit release process at the
    end of the tenancy.


Step 10


Upon completion, keys will be released to the inventory clerk or the tenant on moving-in day.For managed properties, we will provide the tenant with contact details of our dedicated Property Management team.
