Don't worry because help is at hand with Belvoir Lettings Cambridge. They are a franchised company operated by a family business. Being part of a franchise means they have access to great products and services at discounted rates such as insurance policies to cover rent if the tenant defaults. they also share a national brand giving the client brand consistency and improving local awareness.

Belvoir Cambridge is a lettings-only franchise; they are not motivated to sell properties, and there is no conflict when advising landlords of suitable buy to let properties.

The Cambridge lettings team has over 11 years experience in the industry, with more experience at their management office in Peterborough. All aspects of the lettings are operated from Cambridge, with the exception of accounts processing.

Belvoir Lettings Agency Cambridge is a fully regulated letting agency. they are an ARLA licensed office. The Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) leads the industry in setting and regulating the highest standards in the industry and demands certain levels of professionalism and commitment to customer service from its membership. Their client account (where the landlords and tenants money is held) is audited in accordance with ARLA Regulations by independent auditors and is bonded by insurance for yours and your tenant's protection.

They have four different service levels, from a tenant find only up to our fully managed lettings service. Many agents only have two; this allows them to provide you with a more bespoke service to your requirements.

They offer a price match solution, if you find like for like service cheaper elsewhere they will match it. they will also give you the first three months management fee's free, if they don't let your property within 30 days* (*T & C apply).

As landlord's themselves they understand the importance of communication, and over the last 11 years have built up the companies procedures to ensure you are given the best support and advice should issues arise.

Before they start to market a property to tenant's they would normally visit you at your home to carry out a free market appraisal. This appraisal allows them to carry out our essential safety checks on the property to ensure it is safe for them to let. they will also advise you of your legal obligations by becoming a landlord and to confirm your HMRC obligations; they will also discuss the letting of the property and the different service levels they have to offer. At this point they will give you a guide to the monthly rent for the property.

Once they have a signed agreement from you to proceed they will commence marketing and search for suitable tenants. they advertise properties to let in Cambridge on all of the major websites which exceed 50 in total. they use photos, floor plans and virtual tours to show prospective tenants as much of your home as possible before they view.

Depending on the service level you choose this will lead to viewings and then an application for somebody to rent your property, the applicant will under go a referencing process and subject to our checks being completed they will issue a formal offer for the tenancy.

Belvoir Canbridge will prepare the necessary safety tests and create an inventory. Once the tenant moves in they notify the utility companies, schedule the first inspection and pay you the first months rent. Their monthly management will then consist of collecting the rent, carrying out regular inspections and dealing with any queries or maintenance that come up during the duration of the let.

At the end of the tenancy they will conduct a final inspection and draft a deposit report notifying you of any damages and handle a deposit dispute should it arise.

During the time the tenant issued notice, they would have been re-marketing the property for new tenants to ensure a void is kept to a minimum. The notice period you will get from your tenant is 60 days, rather than one month which is commonly used.

Belvoir Letting Agents Cambridge are very approachable and have an honest approach to operating the business. Our aim is to deliver excellent customer service to all clients.
