If you any questions on our fees, please ask a member of staff.
We will ask for your address history for the last three years and complete a credit check on each individual tenant. We will also require a reference from your existing Landlord or Letting Agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts.
The lease you sign will be an Assured Shorthold, which means that you can stay in the property for the period of the lease (provided you meet all the obligations of the lease). If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given two months’ notice to quit the premises.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair, that you are looking after the property and discuss any problems you may be experiencing. You will be given notification when an inspection is due to be conducted.
In the event of maintenance being required please telephone us at the earliest possible time in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Trades persons will be alerted by the Agent and dependent upon the nature and urgency of the task will respond accordingly. Simple precautionary procedures should then be taken by the tenant to prevent any additional problem arising e.g. turn off water at the stopcock if necessary, isolate electric or gas supplies at the mains where required.
You cannot have any pets unless we have permission from the landlord/ourselves in writing. You must consult us prior to obtaining a pet and submit a written request to have a pet stating age/type/breed.
YES! You should consider taking out contents insurance to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The Deposit normally equates to 5 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme and will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition without any claim for potential damages beyond fair wear and tear.
As a tenant you are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid in full and on time. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order which will mean payments are paid directly from your bank to our designated account. You will need to cancel the standing order before leaving the property.
Utility bills, including Council Tax is your responsibility unless stated otherwise in the tenancy agreement. You will need to choose your supplier upon moving in and ensure accounts are closed when you vacate.
Once the Landlord has agreed to accept your application (subject to references and contract) we will ask for a holding deposit equating to one week’s rent. Upon successfully passing the referencing stage of the application, the holding deposit paid will count towards the total balance of rent and deposit owed before the tenancy start date. You risk losing your deposit in the event you provide inaccurate or misleading information on your application, fail a right to rent check, do not all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement or unilaterally withdraw your application.
A totally different sort of service from Home-Share. If you are looking to let your HMO you need a specialist who knows the sector, not just a high street agent. And Home-Share really know what they’re doing.
It starts with getting a realistic valuation. Some agents inflate valuations to unrealistic levels just to secure your business whilst others don’t really understand the true value of individual HMO rooms. Judging by how quickly Home-Share filled my 6 bed house, it looks like they judged it just right. It took just 10 days to fill all 6 rooms.
They know their market as well. They seemed very clear on the type of tenant who would be most likely to want to live at my property and they turned out to be spot on. A rigorous approach to all of the background checks on each applicant has meant that we’ve got some great tenants in place too.
The marketing for this sort of stuff is so important because so much of it is so bad that you have a real chance to stand out if you get it right. And I think they did all the right things, placing ads in all the right places, especially online, where most traditional agents would have failed to post on the right types of sites. Proper professional photos made the house look great. As a result we had lots of footfall through the property right from day 1 and multiple offers, all at asking price.
Home-Share are a small, young agency. But rather than see that as a disadvantage I felt it was their greatest selling point. They are hungry for success and this directly translates to the level of service that you get from them.
Hasan, whose business it is, is a real asset. He knows his market, is honest & straight talking, organised & professional and generally gives off the air of someone for whom nothing is too much trouble.
Very likeable bunch.
We recently rented our HMO home with Home Share, thus far the whole team have been excellent to work with, they rented all rooms quickly and their systems and processes are very efficient. The director Hasan is always on hand if we need him and a special mention to Chloe who has been a pleasure to deal with and is a real asset to the company. Keep up the good work.
Used this agent over 3 years now, no issues at all. I can always chat with any member of the staff and the owner directly via WhatsApp. They are very professional and knowledgeable. They are able to fill my rooms quickly. They have a list of trusted handyman so any maintenance issue was addressed as soon as possible. I trusted them 100% and able to 100% hands off. I don't need to worry about any of my rental properties.
We have been using Home-Share for a few years now and the service has always been brilliant. The rental yield has not only been better value than other agents but the service has been amazing. If there are any issues, they very swiftly handle it with no inconvenience to ourselves and the guaranteed rental actually means guaranteed rent.
Multi-lets can be a nightmare to manage and the industry is renowned of people moving out after 6-12 months but we never have to worry if the property is fully occupied because we would still receive the full rent. We always receive our money in full and on time, which in this climate, this is genuinely priceless.
We are now looking at purchasing another property but as Home-Share doesn't operate in other parts of the country yet, we are in fact investing in more properties in this area purely because we know we will always be looked after
