Landlord Process

Skip to step...

1 Accurate valuation

If you have a property to let, your objective will be focused on maximising your rental yields whilst minimising any rental voids. Glenmore has the lettings know-how to help you achieve this.

2 Selecting an estate agent

As a landlord, it is paramount that you work with a lettings agent you can trust. With landlord advice and services, property marketing, tenant search services, tenancy agreement coordination, inventory management, tenancy deposit protection and much more, we are the full-service lettings agent of choice. Whether you own one buy to let rental property, or you're a landlord with a large investment property portfolio, our lettings specialists can help with everything from handling offer negotiations to preparing the tenancy agreement.

3 Considering a short let?

The benefits of short term lets can be huge. Along with the greater propensity to enjoy a higher rental return on a regular basis, landlords who let for the short term often enjoy greater security, safe in the knowledge that our clients are trusted tenants who arrive with few complications and demands.

4 Benefits of Corporate Services

There is an effective guarantee that rent and other outgoings will be paid on time. Negotiations are often more professional, resulting in a smoother completion of the letting transaction. Companies are more likely to pay higher rents for quality properties, and the lets can provide maximum exposure of the property within the expatriate community and can therefore ensure minimal vacant periods.

5 Consider Property Management

There is much to do when letting out your property. To begin with, you need to prepare your property so it is ready to let. This involves dealing with mortgage lenders, sorting out rent collection, tax matters, insurance cover, utility bills, keys and inventories, and acquiring safety certificates for gas, electrics and appliances: the list goes on. As your property manager, Glenmore can manage all these tasks on your behalf. Once your property is ready for tenants to move in, we will also manage it throughout the tenancy, offering complete peace of mind 24 hours a day.

6 Presenting your property

You want the best tenants and the best rent. Glenmore want you to achieve this and so we will help you have the best property. There is a high demand for good quality rental property and the chances therefore are that your property may let very quickly. We would encourage you to have your property clean and well decorated to attract a better tenant, have fewer maintenance issues and ultimately protect your investment. Improvements made before you let will realise a greater return and, should any damage be discovered at the end of the tenancy, it makes it much easier to prove it happened during the lease.

7 Preparing your property for tenancy

One of the best ways to minimise the risk of disputes with tenants over the return of deposits at the end of the tenancy is to compile a comprehensive and clear inventory at the start of every tenancy. It is best practice for a detailed inventory to be carried out at the start of the tenancy. If tenants are aware that the state and contents of the property has been itemised, they are more likely to ensure that the property is left in the same condition in which it was originally let. Glenmore will carry out a professional inventory checklist on your behalf.

8 Marketing your property

You will want to have the appropriate tools at your disposal to present your property at its very best to the market. Glenmore will provide you with instructions and packages that will illustrate the marketing procedure, and ensure it is attractively exposed to potential tenants.

9 Receiving an offer

A potential tenant has presented an offer. We will communicate this to you with the full details and any other requirements they have requested for.

10 Offer agreed

You have accepted the offer. Glenmore will now collect the relevant references from the tenant and carry out a background check. We will arrange the Tenancy Agreement and have these signed by both parties, as well as collecting the deposit and the rental payment in advance.

11 Completion

All checks are complete and the agreements signed. The new tenant will now receive the keys to the property and be ready to move in.
