Choosing a Letting Agent Letting residential property in England and Wales is covered by various Housing Acts, and Landlord and Tenant Acts, as well as various Safety Regulations. Using a letting agent is by far the best way of ensuring that your property—and you as the landlord—are protected from issues raised by these Acts and Regulations. Your letting agent will owe both you and your tenant a duty of care. It is important that this duty of care is backed up with both public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance. Any funds belonging to either the landlord or the tenant should be kept in a separate client account and not used by the agent in the course of their business. Why Reeds Rains? Comprehensive Service Reeds Rains prides itself on ensuring that we act in the best interests of our clients and provide a comprehensive service backed by all of the required insurances, as well as operating a complaints procedure, should the need arise, which adheres to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Guidelines. Trained and Qualified Staff We have a programme of continuous staff development to ensure that the experts dealing with your asset are always up to speed with the current issues, as well as changes in legislation. We monitor our safety contractors to make sure that they have all of the required professional qualifications and memberships at all times. Expert Local Knowledge Letting property whether by necessity, or as an investment, within the North of England and North Wales, appears in many publications, to offer the best yields, and who better to let through than the North’s Leading Independent Estate Agent. For further details please contact your local Reeds Rains branch and we will be only too pleased to discuss the letting of your property further.

Comment on agent fees
The fees are, in my view, completely excessive, particularly the inventory fee and fee for renewal of contract. I have never had to pay this amount (an admin fee of £250 is very high) or for those types of services before and I think it is totally unjustified. There is very little cost to renewing a contract, most agencies do not charge for this and most people renting cannot afford it. The initial process was a little OTT-initialling every single page of the contract and photos of keys for example seems unnecessary and not something I have ever had to do before. I also do not recall consenting to and did not appreciate being cold called by Reeds Rains Insurance services
