"Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it’s about the safest investment in the world”.
The lettings market is often a much faster paced market compared to sales. Not only can a property be let within a matter of days, but the legislation and laws change constantly, so it’s important that you choose a letting agent that will provide a quality service and at the same time ensuring that your obligations as a landlord are aligned with current government law. Coast & Country have all the local knowledge and connections when it comes to lettings, and pride ourselves in helping landlords protect themselves and their investment.
We understand that renting out a property can be a great investment, but can also be stressful, so we ensure we are expertly placed to find the ideal property to rent or tenants to fill it, so you can achieve the best possible rental return. While the speed of securing a tenant is important, finding the right tenant is the priority, which is why we conduct thorough and comprehensive referencing.
We offer 3 different levels of service to our landlords – see our Letting Fee Sheet for a full breakdown of each service.
If you are looking to rent a property, we are here to find the perfect home to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for a one bedroom flat or a large family home, we will help you to understand and prepare for everything involved when renting a property to ensure that the move to your new home is as stress free as possible.
Whether you’ve just left your parents for the first time, relocated for a new job, or looking for more space, we are here to help you find a place to call home. There is often a lot of competition in the rental market but when a landlord lists their property with us, we do our best to make sure you know about it at the earliest time. We make you aware of all of yours and your landlord’s responsibilities and talk you through everything that is expected of you as a tenant from caring for the property, rent payments and what to do in an emergency.
We will keep your deposit safe. It’s now a legal requirement for landlords to put their tenants deposit into a government approved deposit protection scheme. Tenancy deposit protection (TDP) schemes guarantee that tenants will get their deposits back at the end of their tenancy, providing that they’ve met the terms of their tenancy agreement.
New tenants will be required to put down a holding deposit to reserve their desired property. The amount will total 1 weeks rent.
The holding fee is paid in order to secure the property (so that no other tenants are able to view or offer on it) and start the referencing process. This fee is deducted from the final amount payable when you move in. You will also be required to pay one months’ rent upfront and a security deposit equivalent to 5 weeks rent before the tenancy start date.
IMPORTANT: The holding fee is non-refundable if you, the applicant, withdraws, if false or misleading information is provided or if you fail Right to Rent checks..
Subject to landlords approval and with the understanding that the tenant would be liable to pay rent as defined in their tenancy agreement until a suitable replacement tenant is found. The tenant(s) would also be liable to cover the landlords / agents costs for re-letting, marketing and referencing.
