The Letting Process
Our expert staff carry out many valuations every month giving us intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values in your area.
When you instruct Key Residential to let your property, you will automatically benefit from our unrivalled, comprehensive marketing package.
Our team of specialist ‘Photographers’ will, in just one visit, collect all marketing elements for your property including: colour photographs and standards of finishes down to soft furnishings, this will be live on our website within hours, alongside local information, location maps, aerial views and available as a printable colour brochure.
All of our viewings are accompanied by a member of our team, we see this as an opportunity to get to know prospective tenants, so that we can provide you with feedback, as to whether we feel that this tenant is suitable for your property.
A suitable tenant
Once a suitable tenant has been found, we will apply for references on your behalf. If the tenant proves to be acceptable, we then proceed to the next stage. Letting your property is always as risk, we like to reduce this for you, if the tenant can pass our hurdles, then we believe they are the right tenant for you.
To achieve a smooth running tenancy it is essential to have a professional agreement in place. We will draw up the relevant paperwork based on the guidelines set out by ARLA, ensuring all the necessary documents are signed by both parties.
Rent and deposit
Key Residential will collect the rent and deposit on your behalf from the tenant and register the deposit with The Deposit Protection scheme, in line with legislation.
An inventory of the contents and condition of the property is usually produced prior to commencement of the tenancy. This will be supplied to both landlord and tenant. We strongly recommend our inventory services, as this will protect you, should you wish to deduct for any item or service at the end of tenancy.
Finally we will ensure letters are sent out transferring the utilities (with meter readings) into the name of your tenant (even on a ‘let only’) and keys are handed over. Congratulations, your property is now let!!

Property Management Services
What happens if there’s a problem that requires work?
We continually vet local tradesmen, services and suppliers to ensure we only use companies providing the very best quality of workmanship, at a competitive price, on behalf of our clients.
Many tenants, especially corporate tenants, prefer to rent managed properties. Instructing Key Residential to manage your property guarantees round-the-clock care for both your property and your tenant. After finding you a tenant, we take care of both them and you throughout the tenancy, including everything from collecting rent and handling all administration to assistance with more complex issues.
As a landlord, you have an obligation to ensure that your property complies with all the necessary regulations covering the safety of gas appliances, electrical installations and any furnishings supplied for the tenancy. We can advise you on this and arrange the necessary inspections.
