Our Lettings Department has continued to grow over the years and we offer a totally professional dedicated, loyal and hard working team striving for continued excellence. Lettings and Management are all under one roof, you are only one call away from the team.

We have many combined years of experience in the business of letting and managing properties whether you are a private landlord or a corporate entity. Our relationships with many top relocation agents and our reputation in the area ensures that we will strive to find you the best tenants available to rent your property. A substantial percentage of our tenants are referred to us by friends or family of current/historic tenants.

As and when required we shall assist in preparing your property for incoming tenants and advise on all the necessary requirements to ensure a smooth tenancy. We have project managed work from redecoration and new carpets to complete refurbishment of studio flats to detached houses. We can advise on tax issues, overseas landlords, tenancy agreements and virtually everything that is needed. We do not view lettings as a one off transaction as we take great pride in the fact that the vast majority of our landlords stay with us. Warren has been in Putney for over 30 years and we believe that our reputation is well founded and second to none.
Our Lettings and Management team has vast experience and local knowledge, we are highly motivated individuals who are all based here in our two Putney offices, giving our landlords and tenants alike the opportunity to actually meet in person the members of staff who will be dealing with their enquiries or handling their properties.
In addition to our own very popular website, all our properties are advertised on www.zoopla.co.uk, www.rightmove.co.uk and www.primelocation.com.

Let Only

Our Let Only service is renowned . We will market your property, find you reliable tenants, thoroughly reference them, draw up an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and then organise and set up standing orders to transfer the rent directly to your specified account. We will do everything necessary to facilitate the start of your rental.
Should you need help or advice on cleaning, re-decorating, inventories, gas and electrical safety checks and furniture regulations, we have a dedicated team of professionals to assist.
Our typical charge for our Let Only service is 12% (inc VAT). For all tenancy renewals, we do not charge a percentage but simply an administration fee which is typically £900 (inc VAT).


Energy Performance Certificates (EPC):

All rentals will require an EPC to be undertaken on the property. We have a list of Independent Energy Assessors and can easily arrange for certificate to be carried out on your property. The typical cost for this is £96 (inc VAT). Each certificate lasts 10 years.

Gas Safety Certificates:


On an annual basis, a registered plumber must carry out a gas check on your property. This entails checking your boiler and all gas appliances to ensure they are working correctly and within the law. We have numerous highly experienced contractors who are able to carry out this legally required certificate and we can advise accordingly. The typical cost for this is £80 (inc VAT).


Deposits:

Due to new regulations regarding deposits, if you are not signed up with an accredited deposit scheme, we will hold your tenants deposit for the duration of the tenancy. We are accredited to Tenancy Deposit Solutions (www.mydeposits.co.uk)which is an insurance based scheme. The deposit is held by us in a dedicated account and we act as stakeholder should there be disagreement at the end of the tenancy. There is a charge for this of £48 (inc VAT).

Cleaning:

We would recommend that a full professional clean of your property is done immediately prior to tenants moving in. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly, it avoids the scenario whereby the tenant is unhappy about the condition of the property when they move in and secondly, it ensures the tenants are contractually obliged to have it professionally cleaned when they leave. This means it is ready for the next tenants.

Inventories:
 
Although not an obligation, we would highly recommend that a professional inventory/schedule of condition is carried out, as a prerequisite to letting your property. This provides an adequate means of assessing the condition prior to renting it out and also when the tenant leaves. Warren has a number of fully independent inventory clerks with whom we work closely. The rough cost of an Inventory and Check-in ranges from £100 (inc VAT) for a studio flat to £200 (inc VAT) for a 5 bedroom house. 

Management Services

In addition to the above we shall execute the following full Management services within the full day to day management of your property. Repairs. If, either when notified by the tenant or as a result of our property inspections, we become aware of any repairs we undertake to inform the Landlord and whilst also liaising with the tenant, we shall oversee and remedial works. Should these repairs constitute an amount not exceeding £250 we shall authorise our contractors to proceed which will also be the case in an emergency. Our typical charge for our Full Management service is 18% (inc VAT) which is taken from the rent as we receive it. 

Rent Collection
 
For all managed properties, unless otherwise agreed, the rent will be collected monthly and forwarded to the Landlord, either by payment online or following alternative instructions. Our typical charge for our Rent Collection service is 13.2% (inc VAT)

Monthly Statements
 
These will be sent to Landlords accordingly. Regular Outgoings. If and when required, regular outgoings such as Service Charges, Council Tax, Ground Rents can be paid from the rental income by ourselves.
