RENTING FAQ'S

We will need three years address history from you and a complete credit check on each tenant. We will also need an existing reference from your current landlord or letting agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer or submitted accounts if you are self employed.

 

An assured short-hold tenancy lease is what you will sign to agree to stay in the property. It means that you can stay in the property for the duration of the lease agreed, providing all obligations are met. If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given sufficient written notice depending on the nature and timing of your tenancy.

We will inspect the property to ensure it is not in need of repair and that it is being taken car of correctly. This also gives you the opportunity to raise any concerns or requests you may have. These will be done at a reasonable time and frequency not to cause problems for you as a tenant. You will be given ample time to be aware of any inspections.

If there is a maintenance issue please do contact us as quickly as possible. This will help us to help you as quickly as we can. We work with trusted, professional, tradesmen who will be alerted to any issues that need attention. If there is a preventative measure you can take this should be done to prevent any further damage or problems in the future.

This is on a case by case basis, depending on pet, and landlords preference. Please let us know upon enquiring about one of our properties.

Yes! We strongly advise you consider taking out tenant insurance, which covers you for any accidental damage to the landlords contents, buildings, and fixtures and fittings. Give us a call and we will put you in touch with our insurance partners who can answer any questions you may have.

Your deposit will be 5 weeks rent (including your holding deposit) and will be held in the Tenancy Deposit Scheme for the duration of your tenancy. It will be returned to you at the end of the tenancy providing the property is in good condition beyond fair wear and tear.

You are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid on time and in full. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order in which the payments will come directly from your bank account straight into ours. If you have any questions about this process please do ask.

Unless stated in your tenancy agreement you will be responsible for the council tax and all other utility bills for the property (Gas, electric, water etc). You can choose your supplier and ensure the accounts are closed when you leave.

To reserve a property, you will have to pay a holding deposit. This takes the property off the market while all other processes are completed. Providing this goes smoothly the holding deposit cost goes towards your total deposit which will need to be paid before you move into the property. If through the referencing process any false information is given, and either you or your guarantor withdraw your application you are at risk of losing your holding deposit. If circumstances change due to the landlord’s decision, it will be returned to you in full

Having an inventory protects you and the tenants when it comes to the end of the tenancy. They are detailed documents that cover all aspects of the property and can be used as proof of the original condition before the tenant moves in. 

 

Yes. Before you can let out your property your mortgage lender needs to give you permission, they may also add in special conditions. If you already have the intention of letting the property out you could obtain a buy to let mortgage.

An Energy Performance Certificate or EPC, details the energy efficiency of a property. You will be rated on a scale from A which is most efficient to G which is least, they are valid for 10 years.

As a landlord you are required to have an EPC for your property before it is let and it must have a minimum rating of E. If you fail to meet these requirements you could face a penalty of up to £4,000.

SELLING FAQ'S

Ask us! We will come and value your property free of charge to make sure that it is marketed at the right value.

A growing trend is for agents to over value the property to secure the listing, the property then requires reducing a few weeks later as it has had little interest. At MyHaus we just don’t work this way! That said, if you have a specific price in mind we can always test the market for you.

Selling a house is no simple matter, and the correct due diligence has to be done, this of course takes time making the average sale time is between 12-14 weeks. 

The contract will specify the completion day, and usually the buyer will be asked to collect the keys to their new home from the estate agent. In most cases the seller is asked to vacate the property by 12pm.

In a word… No! We will have professional photography taken and a bespoke floor plan made to give your property the best chance on the market!

Once your property has been marketed and you have negotiated an offer you are happy with it will be the right time to get in touch!

We would aways recommend marketing your property before searching for your new home. This is because selling a property is more complex than buying.
