Services that City Lets are proud to offer
CityLets founded in 2011, is a growing letting agent covering both the residential and student markets. We are not like any other Plymouth based agent, providing a personal approach to both landlords and tenants. For landlords, we offer a bespoke service from the basic options of tenant find all the way up to fully managed for a very competitive rate. For students, we offer some of the best rooms available near the university with a broad selection of standard, en-suite and studios to fit all budgets.
As a Landlord, I am sure that you are aware of the ongoing challenges, along with a raft of new legislation that is affecting you.
Legislation in both Student and Residential lettings is continuing to change. With current laws covering gas regulations, electrical safety, furniture and furnishings, smoke detectors and testing, fire risk assessments and illegal immigration to name but a few, there are a multitude of fines and prison sentences that are enforceable if you do not adhere to the regulations. At CityLets we deal with these issues on a daily basis and can keep you fully briefed regarding your responsibilities.
We offer marketing of your property (along with floor plans and brochures), tenant referencing, inventories, deposit registration, rent collection, we manage maintenance, if you wish, and much more.
We would like to start with a brief discussion to identify your needs, what has been working for you so far, and what you want to achieve.

CERTIFICATION & ADDITIONAL SERVICES
You may be required under the terms of a mortgage, lease or freehold to ask for permission to let your property. If you are unsure how to proceed we would recommend speaking to a solicitor before arranging to rent your property. Once you can proceed with our services, we will require you to sign our contract, provide us with your identification, the details of ownership of your property and an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), with a ‘E’ rating or above, to market.

If you don’t have these already we can offer a competitively priced service to provide them. If it’s a licensed HMO then we’ll need to see more information. Contact us for prices and further information.
It is important to check, as far as possible, that the prospective tenant/s, or any guarantor, can afford the rental payments and has a satisfactory credit history. We offer a referencing service, via a credit referencing agency, for the assessment of your prospective tenant/s along with a comprehensive credit check. Costs for this service will be dependant of which service that you choose.
To arrange for a tenant to move into your property, following successful checks, we require by law, a copy of your Landlords Gas Safety Certificate, an Electrical Installation Certificate, Smoke Alarms and C02 Alarms to be in place and working, keys and if applicable - a Portable Appliance Certificate (PAT), a HMO Licence, Furnishing and Soft Furnishing compliance, Fire Compliance, Risk Assessments, and Emergency Lighting Certificate.
