I want to let my property. Do I need to tell my mortgage lender?

Yes. Your mortgage lender needs to give you permission before you can let your property, and they may impose special conditions. If you are buying a property with the intention of letting it out, you may be able to obtain a buy to let mortgage.

How do I know what rent to charge?

Ask a letting agent to value your home. Brockenhurst are experts in the market, so we can advise you how other rental properties are doing in the area, and what kind of yield you can hope to expect.

How much will it cost me to let my property?

This really depends on how much support you need. At Brockenhurst we offer 2 main service levels: Standard (for self-managing landlords who want a tenant find only service) and Full Management (for landlords who are not up to speed with the regulations and want us to be responsible for all aspects of tenancy management). Most agents offer a range of different services and the fees charged reflect this. Be sure you understand an agent’s fees and exactly what level of service you can expect when you ask them to conduct a lettings valuation.

What happens to my tenant’s deposit?

Landlords and letting agents are required to register tenants’ deposits with an approved Tenancy Deposit Scheme. At Brockenhurst we register deposits with the Deposit Protection Service. The deposit funds are physically paid over and held by the deposit scheme. The Tenancy Deposit Scheme is there to protect the tenant’s money and help to resolve any disputes at the end of the tenancy.

Why should I have an inventory?

An inventory is a detailed list of the contents and schedule of condition of your property taken before the tenant moves in. It is important that if there is a dispute over damage at the end of the tenancy, you have proof of the original condition of the property and its contents. You can read more here.

What are my obligations surrounding gas?

You must have a Gas Safety Record (LLGS) in place to ensure that all gas appliances, pipes and flues are in safe working order. It must be carried out by a qualified Gas Safe Registered engineer and needs to be checked every 12 months.

Do I need to get my electrical appliances tested?

You are required to ensure that the electrics and wiring within the property are safe for use and from 1st July 2020 all rental properties will be required to have a valid Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). You can read more about the new Electrical Safety Regulations in our blog here.

How do I receive my rental income from my letting agent?

If you choose a Rent Collect or Full Management service, the agent will arrange for the tenant to pay the rent via standing order or direct debit. The rental money will then be transferred to your account minus commission and any outgoings or fees (such as maintenance work fees). You should receive a statement every month

What if the tenant damages the property?

Either the tenant pays to fix the damage, or the cost for fixing the damage is deducted from the tenant’s deposit at the end of the tenancy. However, it is important to remember that fair wear and tear needs to be considered.

Your new home awaits.
