At County Homesearch we recognise that not everyone is necessarily looking to buy their home. Often circumstances mean that renting is simply the more suitable option. However, the process of renting can be just as time-consuming, complicated and perplexing as buying. This is where our rental property search service can be invaluable. Whatever your reasons for needing help, we’re here to help. The Rental Property Search Process Our rental property search service can work in a very similar way to our buying option. We will begin by compiling a comprehensive brief, outlining all your needs and requirements. To help inform and guide you at this stage, we will provide you with advice on current market conditions, notable features and services in the local area, and so forth. We want you to feel confident and informed in any decisions you make. With a clear brief agreed, we will then begin the rental property search on your behalf. This is where you personally can save a lot of time and effort. By employing us to establish whether properties truly live up to the promises of the brochure or website, we ensure that you only see properties that have a good chance of being your perfect home. Initial rental property search complete, we then provide you with a shorter, more manageable shortlist that we closest to your requirements. We will organise a series of viewings so that you can see them for yourself. However, often the rental market is very fast moving and hesitating could mean you lose out on the property you want. Our rental home-finding days can also help you move more swiftly to ensure you don’t miss out on your ideal rented home. Again, we will thoroughly research what’s available and compile an itinerary of property viewings that closely matches your needs. Without pre-viewing them first, we’ll accompany you to view them and give you a professional opinion on the property. Negotiating The Best Deal Either way once a property has been chosen we will help you with all the nitty-gritty details of lease negotiations, from the obvious concern of rental price to moving in dates. With an eye on the future, we will thoroughly investigate the specifics of any break clauses, the terms of tenancy extension options and whether there are any restrictions. Our solid, long-lasting relationships with letting agents ensure that we have strong negotiating power and often hear about rental properties before they ever reach the market. Furthermore, they know that our clients are credible, giving us an additional competitive advantage. We ensure that you get the best possible deal. Our standard fee is based on 1 month’s rent + VAT or £450+ VAT per viewing day where pre-viewing is not practical or required.
