In addition to advertising we ensure that we use the latest technology at our disposal to its full potential. We enter your property details onto our office systems and search our Tenants register. If your property matches the requirements of tenants we will inform them as soon as possible that your property is on the market using a range of methods including email alerts and of course we'll call them as well.

Choice Housing are a new generation of Letting agents that deliver a fast, professional and cost efficient service through the careful integration of information technology. We have vast amount of high calibre private and corporate tenants listed at any one time, most looking to move in quickly.
Being kept informed during the marketing process is an essential element of the estate agents job. Many agents fail to keep you updated on a regular basis and this can lead to a lack of knowledge by the Landlords as well as a lack of trust.

We at Choice Housing provide you with feedback or a courtesy phone call of the viewings we have done on your property, we will also provide you with regular full marketing updates on your property. This will include:

  • An overview of the market
  • Feed back from viewings
  • Recent advertising schedule
  • Our thoughts and recommendations
The Right Tenant
One of the most important tasks we have is to present and recommend a potential tenant who not only is able to proceed to a successful tenancy in your property but is also able to do it in a time frame to suit yourself. We thoroughly interview all prospective tenants so as to ascertain their ability to proceed and to make sure that the property is suitable for their needs. We have found through many years of experience that these initial investigations greatly reduce the possibility of a client having a change of mind at a later stage.

Negotiating The Rent
Once we have a potential tenant for your property, as your agent we will negotiate to achieve the rent and most preferential terms for you.
We have built up a reputation of achieving the best possible prices on our client’s investments.

Once the terms been agreed we will write to all parties concerned so no confusion can arise at a later stage.

When a tenant has been found, we will take one months deposit from the tenant as a security. Then references are taken up by an independent referencing agency. References are used to provide verification of the information provided by the tenants. They will check that each tenant is creditworthy by checking for CCJs and arrears and obtaining employer, landlord’s and character references. On some occasions we may ask for a for a guarantor, if we need a guarantor then all the references and CCJs checks will be carried out on the guarantor.


Tenancy Agreements
We will use Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, normally the length of the term is six months or as agreed by both parties. The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement is the safest and easiest to way end under ENGLAND & WALES HOUSING ACT 1988, using Sections 8 & 21 Notice Requiring Possession.

If you wished to use an agreement drafted by your own solicitor please supply us with a draft.


Rent & Deposit
We will collect the first months rent and deposit (of normally one months rent & one months deposit), which is taken to cover the Landlord against any dilapidation and unpaid accounts, prior to the commencement of the Tenancy. The balance of rent and deposit will usually be passed on to the Landlord within 10 working days after receipt of cleared funds, after deducting our Introductory fee, unless you have contracted us for either our rent collection or Full management service where the deposit will be held by Choice Housing Estate Agents Ltd and registered with The Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme, as per recent legislation.


Once all monies and necessary documents have been signed and clear funds collected, we will arrange for the tenant to come in to the office and sign the tenancy agreement and any other relevant documents and the keys for the property will be given to the tenant.   Congratulations your property has been let!
