Inventory

We get asked frequently, "why are inventories so important?" In order to protect your biggest asset, you need to be sure that when your tenant moves out, it's returned in the same condition. In the event that it is not, you need to be able to prove the difference in order to claim damages. That's why we use Just Checking Homes. 

They produce for us highly details photographic check-in and inventories, quarterly inspections and check-outs. They also store the original high resolution photos, should they be need again at the end of the tenancy to make claim.

Client Money Protection

CMP is a scheme that reimburses landlords and tenants should a letting agent misappropriate their rent, deposit or other client funds. It has long been a requirement for ARLA Propertymark members to have CMP and has been a legal requirement for all letting agents since 1 April 2019.

Tenant Referencing and Rent & Legal Protection Insurance

A comprehensive tenant reference that incorporates a credit and background check, an employment/income reference, a landlord reference (if applicable) and a right to rent check. Together with a completed referencing report, Rent and Legal Protection Insurance is essential cover for all landlords. No one ever expects to have their tenant fall behind on rent, but it happens more often than you might think. And when it does, it can be a major headache for both landlord and us! Rent and Legal Protection Insurance is a must-have for any landlord looking to protect their income and that’s why at Andrea & Co we include rent protection insurance as part of our Fully Managed service. 

Frequenty Asked Questions

  • Do I need a license to rent my property?

    We have partnered with Kamma, a company specifically designed to navigate the complexity of landlord licensing. When we conduct the valuation, we will also produce a Kamma report to check your boroughs local licensing laws.

  • Do I need a Portable Appliance Test (PAT) to rent my property?

    Portable Appliance Test (PAT) is recommended, but not required to rent property in the UK. We recommend that one is conducted before the commencement of a new tenancy. Unless you expressly instruct us not to do so, we will instruct a contractor to conduct such reports on your behalf. Should you chose not to conduct the check, you will not be held liable for loss or damage to life or property.

  • Can I rent the property furnished?

    Yes, you can! However, the furniture must comply with The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 and the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 1993. You must ensure all upholstered furniture, soft furnishings, beds, mattresses, pillows, and cushions supplied in the property complies with certain safety standards.

  • Do I need a Gas Safety Certificate (GSC)?

    If your property has gas appliances, you are legally obliged to have all gas equipment checked and approved annually. It is a criminal offence to rent property with gas appliances, pipework and installations that have not been checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

  • What are the different types of tenancies agreements?

    Assured Shorthold Tenancy: Where the net rent is less than £100,000.00 per year. Tenancy Agreements can be for a fixed duration, run month to month (i.e., a Periodic Tenancy), or be a combination of the two. A fixed term contract will give you more certainty, whilst the periodic tenancy will give you more flexibility. At the expiry of the initial term the tenancy will automatically roll on from month to month generally upon the same terms and conditions (including rent) unless and until you serve the tenant with a valid notice, or the tenant voluntarily surrenders possession.

    Common Law: If the rent payable is £100,000.00 or more per year or at a proportionate level for a shorter Tenancy, the tenancy agreement cannot be an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. You will need to use a Common Law Agreement. Although this is not governed by the Housing Act 1988 it is nevertheless subject to other statutory regulations (e.g., Protection from Eviction Act 1977) which means that you must obtain a possession order from the County Court before a tenant can be evicted.

    Company Lets: A Company Let may involve more pre-contract negotiation. There are no rent restrictions. Companies may request an option to renew which would bind the Landlord to a longer tenancy if the tenant wished to renew after the first term. If there is an option to renew, the landlord has no right to legally terminate the tenancy at the end of the first term.

  • Who holds the tenant’s security deposit?

    We will hold the deposit as stakeholder. This means that we will hold the deposit on behalf of the tenant and the landlord (not just for the landlord). Andrea & Co is a Member of the Scheme operated by Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS). We will register the deposit and provide to the tenant and any relevant person documentation and information as is required by the Scheme and by law.
