Contracts

A tenancy agreement is the contract between landlord and tenant. The quality of the tenancy agreement used can have a direct impact on your ability to make a claim on the tenant’s deposit, to hold them liable for rent, utilities and to ensure any notices are correctly served or received.

For this reason, we can provide you with a standard tenancy agreement but you should take legal advice to check whether it is appropriate for your circumstances.

Rental payments

Our system allows us to transfer rent to your nominated bank account usually within 24 hours of receipt. All transactions are copied to you via email and duplicates can be supplied upon request.

Deposits

The deposit for a let is usually equivalent to one month’s rent. We are legally required to register a deposit for an Assured Shorthold Tenancy every time a tenancy is granted, extended or renewed. Failure to do so entitles the tenant to make a claim against the landlord and the penalty for non-compliance is up to three times the deposit value. For Assured Shorthold Tenancies, the deposit will be registered with www.depositprotection.com Landlords and lettings agents who take a deposit in England and Wales must protect it within 30 days of receiving the money from the tenant.

"Nothing was ever too much trouble"

Thank you so much for all your help and advice during the last few months. Your company made us feel cared about and as if we were the only clients you had. Nothing was ever too much trouble and we really appreciate it. It is as though we are leaving friends. Thank you again!

"Extremely professional and friendly service"

From my first call to arrange a viewing to collecting my keys, I received a first class, extremely professional and friendly service from the team at Edwards. They were very accommodating with viewing times, the negotiations were dealt with professionally and I was updated with progress without feeling pressurised. Even after I moved in Edwards remained very helpful. My whole experience of purchasing my new home was stress free. I will be recommending Edwards to friends and family. Thank you - I love my new home!

"We wanted accurate valuation advice"

From start to finish we were very impressed with the level of service we received from the team. We chose Edwards as we wanted accurate valuation advice from an agent with local knowledge. We got this from Alex and then excellent ongoing support right up to completion from the rest of the team.

"So much easier than we expected"

This was our first purchase and Edwards were very helpful in explaining anything we were unsure about and made the whole process so much easier than we expected. We were kept well informed at every stage of the purchase by Edwards, even when our own solicitor was difficult to get hold of!

Because of the great service we received when buying through them, I didn't hesitate to entrust the sale of my late mother's property to them.
