Letting with DOMVS

 

Advice to Landlords

DOMVS is dedicated to offering clients the very best service.  We take instructions to let your property as a privilege, and understand we need to offer a bespoke service to ensure your property is showcased in the most effective way. We currently let properties throughout Dorset, Somerset and the Purbecks, and have Lettings branches in Dorchester, Wareham and Preston.

We know letting a property, particularly for the first time, can be a daunting experience, and this is why DOMVS invest time and research to ensure you understand the process completely, keeping you apace of the ever-changing rental market.

Our dedicated team are ARLA trained and have over 26 years’ experience within the Lettings industry, thus allowing you to have total confidence and peace of mind when you choose to work with us.  We have in-depth knowledge of the local market and are able to fulfil your letting requirements in the shortest possible time, to maximise your financial venture and make being a landlord as stress-free as possible.

Not only are we adept at finding you the ideal tenant, we are also best placed to advice you on how to present your property to appeal to a wide audience. We will also advise you on all legal and safety responsibilities to ensure you as a Landlord are fully compliant.

Tenants

In order to find you the perfect tenant, we ensure all prospective tenants are fully vetted using our stringent referencing procedures, which include a credit check and the more recently introduced right2rent check.

Tenancy Agreement

A comprehensive tenancy agreement is paramount to ensure you have redress if your property is not carefully looked after.  DOMVS uses a tenancy agreement designed to protect your rights to possession and to help control the tenant’s activities, whilst ensuring that all terms are fair to both tenant and landlord, thus making sure you comply with the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.  Our tenancy agreements are regularly updated to include the ever-changing legislation.

Inventory / Schedule of Condition

This is another essential document that must be prepared prior to the tenancy commencing.  It must list the property’s contents and condition from the start of the tenancy. This will help avoid disputes arising when the final check-out is carried out at the end of the tenancy.

Service Options

As a landlord, you need to establish what kind of management service suits your needs.  You may wish to be a “hands-on” landlord, in which case our Let Only service would best suit you.  If you would prefer to take a back seat and let DOMVS take the strain, our Fully Managed service is for you.
