Services for Landlords from Keystone

The property rental industry is about to undergo huge changes with new legislation being introduced and Government Departments wanting to look in depth at the Landlord – Tenant relationship to improve it for all parties.

Compulsory redress schemes came into force 1 October 2014 and Keystone are pleased to announce that we have been a member of the government recommended scheme being run by the Property Ombudsman. (Any letting agents or landlords who fail to sign up to a redress scheme by this deadline will be committing a criminal offence which could result in a fine of up to £5,000.)

We can take the stress out of letting your property because we know the support and level of service which is required to help you run your property and business as efficiently and problem-free as possible. We pride ourselves on being specialists in our industry and are confident we can let your property quicker than anyone else in the area.

New Government regulations requires Letting Agents to publish letting fees on their website. Many agents are not complying with this but Keystone believe our fees are competitive and fair.

We can now able to offer landlords two packages...

50% + VAT of first months rent (subject to a minimum fee of £350 plus VAT, a total of £420).

If you want to avoid the hassle, or are uncertain of the processes involved in preparing a water-tight tenancy agreement, credit checking tenants, taking a deposit and other new regulations then Tenant Find Plus may be just what you need. This package will include:

  • A full valuation on expected rental returns for the property
  • Marketing the property on the largest property portal - Rightmove and if required erecting a Keystone "To Let" board at the property
  • Organising all viewings on the Landlord's behalf
  • Full referencing and credit check of potential tenants to ensure that they are suitable for the landlord's property
  • Providing a comprehensive Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement
  • Taking the deposit and advanced rental and organising a standing order for future rental payments

Inventory

£100 plus VAT

An Inventory and Schedule of Condition of the property can be purchased as an extra to the above. This will be done on state of the art software that will be dated automatically and will show the property’s contents, furniture, fittings and effects. An Inventory is important to agree with your tenant at the beginning of the tenancy as it will form the basis of any claim for damages.
