LET US HELP YOU: TOP 3 REASONS TO RENT THROUGH AN AGENT

Thursday, 25 November 2021

The Guernsey property market is as busy as it’s ever been, and that applies just as much for lettings as it does for sales.

Livingroom’s expert team has received enquiries from many Local and Open Market tenants who are looking for a property to rent, with requests for everything from one-bed flats to substantial family homes – and everything in-between. We’re actively on the lookout for new landlords who have property to rent as we know we can match them with the right tenant.

Our extensive book of waiting clients is just one reason why you should rent your property with Livingroom but here are at least three more reasons to let us help you:

1. Rent safely – you might have seen that opportunists are exploiting the desperation among some renters by running rental scams on social media. Renting a property on social media is dangerous for all concerned. Using an agent removes the risk of you losing substantial amounts of hard-earned money and gives you peace of mind when you need it most. Our team will carry out due diligence (on both parties) and credit checks, and obtain employer, character and landlord references, and proof of housing status as part of the process; using a lettings agent gives you peace of mind that the transaction is being handled properly and that the tenants, and their interest, are as genuine as your property is.

2. Follow best practice – our experienced lettings experts are familiar with the legal particulars of renting in Guernsey and regularly prepare leases that follow industry standard while being bespoke to our clients’ needs. The Livingroom brand is a hallmark of quality so having us handle the contractual elements of renting shows that you have entrusted the process to the best. We also provide inventories and condition reports based on our long-established templates based on best practice backed by our legal advisors.

3. Show your property in its best light – our award-winning creative team, website and property promotion has strong imagery and design at its heart. We pride ourselves on being more than estate agents with cameras; we have a dedicated in-house creative team who will capture the very best of your property with state-of-the-art photography equipment. Cataloguing extensive imagery also proves invaluable throughout the process when substantiating inventories and condition reports.

If you have a property for rent, of any style or size, we’d love to hear from you and match you with a waiting tenant. We require properties in all brackets, so get in touch with Sarah or Danielle in our lettings team today on 01481 715555.

For more information on letting with Livingroom, we have produced guides for landlords and tenants containing useful tips.
