Tenant Find Only

Open House Lancashire understands that different landlords have different demands. Some want to outsource services completely, some partially. We understand this and thus have crafted various landlord services packages for you. 

 You have a property that needs a tenant, and we can help find you that tenant! You can avail our landlord services for finding a tenant only.

Perhaps you’re comfortable navigating through the legislative requirements of property management, but just need a hand finding yourself a new tenant.

If that’s the case, this might be the right service for you. You’ll deal with one staff member throughout the entire process, guaranteeing a smooth and personal approach to getting your property occupied.

Free Legal Advice

There are over 180 pieces of legislation that may need to be taken in to account when renting a property.

We’ll keep you updated and help ensure you’re compliant.

Professional Photographs

We put in the same effort and attention to detail when marketing a rental property, that we do when marketing a property for sale.

Photographs increase property views online, and quality photos have been proven to increase viewings!

Maximum Exposure

Your property will be listed on Rightmove, Zoopla & primelocation to ensure you get maximum exposure.

Did you know that around 30% of Zoopla’s visitors don’t visit Rightmove when searching for a property?

Independent Referencing

We’ve teamed up with Let Alliance who provide some of the industries most thorough referencing products.

You want good tenants, and we’ll do everything we can do ensure that you get the best!

Comprehensive Inventory

An inventory isn’t just about listing what items are in the house, it must record the condition of the entire property.

Without a thorough inventory it can be very difficult to defend deposit disputes. We’ll make sure you’re as protected as possible!

No Paperwork

We’ll get your set-up with a tenancy provided by one of the industries regulatory bodies. It’s regularly updated to ensure that you don’t get caught out.

We’ll also make sure all required paperwork is served on your tenants prior to the tenancy starting, so that you don’t have to.

Accompanied Move In

Unlike most agents we’ll meet your tenants at the property to do a handover. As we’re open 24/7 we are able to do this out of hours where required.

Whilst on site we’ll ensure that smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are tested as required by law.

Fully Managed

Fuly Managed is Open House Lancashire’s most comprehensive landlord services.

If you’re looking for the complete letting solution, this is it. Our Lancashire estate agents are there to help you out from the scratch!  You’ll receive all of the services in our Tenant Find Only service, plus a complete property management solution. This complete package has been designed for your complete convenience and is executed by professional Lancashire estate agents.

The only time you should ever hear from us is when we’re forwarding your rent, or when we’re forwarding over an inspection report. You’ll deal with one staff member for everything from finding a tenant, all the way through to moving them out and dealing with the deposit.

Rent Collection
& Credit Control

We’ll handle all of the financials. From rent collection, through to arrears chasing and contractor payments.

We don’t hold on to your money for long either, we’ll pay you within 48 hours of clearance. It’s your money after all!

No Paperwork

Not only will we deal with all of the paperwork required to move your tenants in, we’ll also look after all paperwork throughout the entire tenancy.

This includes things such as any ongoing Right to Rent checks, and organising gas safety records etc…

Electronic Statements

Your statements will be emailed to you (and your accountant if you like…), on the same day that we process your payment.

We’ll help keep you organised, by sending statements promptly.

Regular Property Visits

Property visits don’t just benefit you, they also benefit your tenants! We’ll visit around 6 weeks after your tenant first moves in, and then every 4 months thereafter.

You’ll receive a report after each visit, and if any action is required we’ll advise accordingly.

Maintenance Handling

When you are ready to move, we provide all of our vendors with professional photographs and a floor plan as standard.

We don’t believe in charging extra for things that are proven to help sell your property.

Utilities and services

We will manage all services including gas, electric, water and council tax when the tenancy commences and ends.

Meaning no surprising bills.

Contractor Panel

Not only will we manage the maintenance of your property, but we go to extra lengths to ensure only the most reliable of contractors carry out your work.

Our panel of local contractors are fully qualified, insured and vetted to ensure only the highest of standards.

Full Deposit Handling

We’ll register the deposit at the start of the tenancy, and serve all of the required paperwork.

At the end of the tenancy we will compile a detailed check-out report and advise if we feel any deductions should be made against the deposit. We’ll also deal with any disputes.
