At Wallace Estates we believe that when you are letting a property you need to be working with an experienced specialist who knows and understands every aspect of a client's needs.
Our role is to view the world through your eyes and respond accordingly, combining a passion for results with the highest level of personal and professional integrity. Whether your objective is securing the highest rent, having your property occupied by honest respectful tenants, reducing void periods or simply protecting your home whilst you live elsewhere, we specialise in it, we understand the market and are here to help.
We concentrate on providing a quality service where every single property we market is given the best possible profile ensuring strong results. We also maintain a pre-reference checked tenant database to enable the viewing process to commence as swiftly as possible for each property. Through corporate networking over the years, we now regularly deal with a number of companies searching for corporate standard accommodation for a re-locating staff member.
The standard process that is included in our letting fee is outlined below:
An experienced agent will meet you at your property to evaluate the market rent, discuss the letting procedure & tenancy proposal along with any special conditions you may wish to advise us on. We also can point out any obvious cosmetic work that can help the property rent efficiently. We then photograph the property and market it on our website and in our general adverts.
Having discussed your wishes in terms of the type of tenancy you wish to secure, for example whether you will allow children, pets, smokers and so forth – and the length of time you wish to rent out the property for, we arrange viewings with suitable tenants sourced from both our pre-registered tenant database and the property advertising. Following each viewing regular feedback is given to the landlord. For a proposed tenant, references are thoroughly checked including ID/Bank/Employers and Previous Landlord.
Should the landlord be happy to proceed with the letting we collect 1 months deposit & 1 months rent in advance from the new tenant (our fee is deducted & the balance is transferred to landlord’s account). We then draw up & execute 3 lease agreements issued on behalf of the landlord. Tenants are met either at the property or Wallace Estates office to sign the lease agreements, RTB form (which is now compulsory- for further information go to property news above), monthly standing order form to pay rent directly from tenant's to Landlord's account, change of account ownership forms for ESB & GAS utilities.
Once all paperwork has been completed the new tenants receive their keys. Wallace Estates then informs the respective utility services of an account changeover along with GAS and ESB readings at commencement of tenancy. The landlord receives our letting package enclosing their 3 lease agreements, two of which are to be signed and returned to our office. We will then forward a copy to the tenant and keep one on file at Wallace Estates. You will also receive a signed PRTB form which should be completed by the landlord and sent to the PRTB office along with the €90 registration fee.
The above outlines our basic letting package, should you wish for a more extensive service please view our management packages and other services such as insurance, BER Certification, cleaning and maintenance contractors.
Landlords continue to choose Wallace Estates due to our unrivalled knowledge of the expanding property rental market and our client's needs. All our agents appreciate that viewings and valuations have to fit in with our customer's busy lifestyles. We understand the value of conducting viewings outside standard working hours to accommodate the widest possible spectrum of tenants.
