Rental Values

The amount of rent you receive depends on the size and location of the property. Our negotiators can give you an indication of the rent you are likely to receive over the phone, but we’ll need to visit the property to give an accurate rental assessment.

Documents Required

By law, landlords are required to provide the following documents before we can allow tenants to move in:

  • Gas Safety
    The Gas Safety (Insulation and Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all gas appliances must be inspected annually by a Gas Safe Register registered engineer. A valid Gas Safety record must be issued and updated every 12 months. The current certificate must have been issued within the last six weeks and must be an original (not a copy).
  • Electrical Safety
    The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 require that electrical equipment including wiring is safe. An electrical test certificate must be issued by the electricity board or a NICEIC registered electrician. This certificate must have been issued in the last six weeks, be an original (not a copy), and must be valid for a minimum period of three years.
  • Energy Performance
    It has been a legal requirement since 1 October 2008 for all the landlords to have a valid energy performance certificate (EPC) for their property before it can be let. The EPC gives your house an A-G rating on energy efficiency and suggests ways improve your rating. Your property will need to have a “D” rating or above. A valid EPC will last for 10 years and can be used for multiple tenancies within that period.
