    Finding the perfect letting agent for letting a residential property in UK can be an uphill task. However, by following these simple guides, one can surely bag the best deal on his own property, and also be secured as a landlord.
    Renting out a residential property is no longer a cake work like the earlier days. A lot has to be taken into consideration, including proper legal work, before you can actually rent out your property.
    If all these seem petty hassles to you, look for the perfect letting agency suited to your preference. However, you cannot simply enter a letting agency, and make them responsible for your entire property. You need to be able to trust them in order to allow them to deal with your property.
    If you are wondering how to choose the perfect letting agents, read on this little guide below:
    1. Check on the timescale: Before finalizing an agent, ask them the time they would need to let out your property. For example, not all the properties in all locations can be rented out in a week or so! A good agent, like Umega Letting, will analyze all the prospects and tell you a prospective time. You can also ask them about how many clients do they have ready in their database.
    2. Reliability of the tenant: A tenant’s reliability is something that has to be checked in full details before letting out a property. Check if your letting agent can provide you with the entire details of the prospective tenants in their database. A great letting agency, like Umega Letting, shall be able to answer whether the tenants are completely referenced, credit checked and also rent checked. Also find out the checks they carry out, and in which process.
    3. What makes the agents stand out: If you still think you are not sure about the agent, simply ask them what makes them stand out among their competitors. Ask them how swift they are regarding the maintenance issues and whether they will carry out proper inspections in future once the house in on rent. These little details go a long way to get yourself a great letting agent.
    4. Talk about the fees: Always be clear about whether they shall calculate their fees on all the post-rent jobs, like maintenance, repairs, etc. or whether they shall simply let you meet the tenant and do the required paperwork. These minor details help you to choose the best and the most affordable letting agent.
