Landlords Information & Fees
 

Brittons Lettings offer landlords 3 levels of service - Gold, Silver & Bronze
 
However, we are always happy to arrange a bespoke property management contract to meet a landlord’s specific requirements. Just contact our Lettings Manager for further details .
 
We highly recommend that landlords reference all tenants who will be listed in the tenancy. Due to the  ‘Tenant Fee Act 2019’ landlords and agents are no longer able to charge tenants for this service, when previously tenants have paid for their own references. The Act has prohibited landlords/agents charging fees to tenants unless they are in breach of the tenancy agreement or the tenancy is changed at the tenant’s request, i.e. change of tenant, etc, not a tenancy renewal.  For more information, you may find the following link helpful www.gov.uk/government/publications/tenant-fees-act-2019-guidance 

 
 
Gold Service - Fully Managed Tenancy
 

Our Fully Managed Tenancy contract is the most popular level of service amongst all our landlords. This is a comprehensive ‘hands free’ service offering as much peace of mind as possible for a landlord, knowing that the tenancy is in reliable hands. This service minimizes the hassle of being a landlord as we can take care of everything from start to finish leaving our landlords time to enjoy themselves.
 
The Gold Service includes the following:

  • Marketing your property and finding a suitable tenant
  • Negotiating terms between you as a landlord and the prospective tenant
  • Arranging a suitable moving in date for you and the tenant
  • Preparing and executing your new tenancy agreement (electronic PDF copy only)
  • Preparing and supplying an Inventory & Schedule of condition (electronic PDF copy only)
  • Collection and registration of the tenants’ deposit
  • Collection of the first month’s rent
  • Subsequent collection of rent and accounting to you
  • Regular property inspections and reporting to you on the condition of the property
  • Responding to all routine maintenance issues reported by the tenant or discovered by the property inspections.
  • 24/7 Emergency call out service
  • Advice on and assistance with legal aspects of letting your property
  • Final administration when the end of the tenancy occurs (this does not include deposit disputes, see additional services)
 

Silver Service - Let & Collect Tenancy

The Let & Collect service is designed for the Landlord who has the time and expertise to manage the maintenance of their property, but requires Brittons to introduce and source a suitable tenant and complete all aspects of accounting for the tenancy.
 
The Silver Service includes the following:

 
  • Marketing your property and finding a suitable tenant
  • Negotiating terms between you as a landlord and the prospective tenant
  • Arranging a suitable moving in date for you and the tenant

  • Collection and registration of the tenants deposit
  • Collection of the first month’s rent
  • Subsequent collection of rent and accounting to you
 

Bronze Service - Introduction Only Contract

Our Introduction Only service is for the landlord that has a wealth of knowledge in letting a property and therefore requires minimal involvement from a managing agent, other than introducing  a suitable tenant and preparing the legal documents. Please note if you agree during the application/referencing process to accept bulk rental payment is advance i.e. 6 months’ rent in advance, this service will not apply and will automatically de-fault to the Silver Service– Let & Collect.

 
The Bronze Service includes the following:
 
  • Marketing your property and finding a suitable tenant
  • Negotiating terms between you as a landlord and the prospective tenant
  • Arranging a suitable moving in date for you and the tenant

"We cannot sing the praises of Britton's highly enough! Estate Agents are a group of people who have a certain negative, urban-legend type reputation and I must say that we have sometimes had experiences that would not disagree with that. HOWEVER, Britton's are the absolute polar opposite, with every person on the team being helpful, friendly, professional and efficient. Six years ago they marketed the house we have just sold - and as purchasers, at that stage, we were delighted and surprised with the friendly and highly professional service they provided. Then we found that it was necessary to move again, and we requested the recommended 3-4 different valuations, including from Britton's. The others gave unrealistically low valuations for our property, given the amount we had spent to improve it. Then Damian from Britton's came and gave a valuation that was exactly what we had thought our house would be worth. In just less than three weeks, and after a couple of other viewings, a buyer was found and we accepted their offer of the full asking price. Viewings are conducted by members of Britton's staff, and I had wondered if this was a good idea as we knew all the details of the property. However my concerns were completely unfounded. Chris or Jodi came to conduct the viewings, and they both completely familiarised themselves with every detail that we had provided. They were so friendly and helpful, and really made the viewings a pleasure, rather than being stressful. Unfortunately the purchase of our new house was less than smooth for a variety of reasons that had nothing to do with Britton's. Although they were not directly involved (If ONLY they had been, the problems would not have arisen!) this was where we then found an entirely new level of "above and beyond the call of duty" service from Britton's. Melanie, Emma, Chris and Jodi were all absolutely wonderful in their support and advice. We really were made to feel that the whole team was there to be our friends as well as to do the job we had asked them to do. An encouraging, supportive and sympathetic phone call from Emma on one particularly black day (when it seemed that our purchase may collapse) was exactly what was needed to give me the strength to press through the week. Eventually all fell into place, exchange and completion happened within two days of each other. Our new home is one that we not are intending to move away from! We have found that "forever home"... BUT if ever we found we had to move there would be no questions, no alternatives, no hesitation - we would use Britton's. If your new home is being marketed by Britton's, you will definitely be grateful to them. If you need to sell your house - you will receive peerless service, from people who will become your friends, if you choose Britton's. Honestly, and after 30 years of buying and selling both home and business buildings I do not say this lightly, why would you go to anyone else? Britton's are by far the best. "
