Energy performance certificates (EPCs)

You will need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) whenever your property is:

BOUGHT

SOLD

LET

Before you market your property to potential tenants or buyers, you must order an EPC. EPCs contain information about:

  • The property’s energy use

  • Typical energy costs

  • Recommendations on how to reduce energy use and save money

An EPC will award your property an energy efficiency rating between A and G. It will then remain valid for 10 years. We charge a total of £85 for this service.

Professional photography for property details

In order to attract people to view your property, you will need professional photography that makes your home look the best it possibly can. With many potential buyers and tenants choosing properties based on photographs alone, we offer a package of twelve professional photographs to be used to advertise your property.

Floor plans

With 93% of potential buyers and tenants preferring property details to have a floor plan, we offer both standard and 3D options. With potential buyers and tenants being able to see the lay-out of your property, they will be able to find it easy to imagine themselves living there, helping you to entice them to make an offer.

Services for landlords

The Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS)

The Deposit Protection Scheme is designed to avoid and resolve disputes between tenants and landlords, relating to the use and return of a tenant’s deposit, quickly and efficiently. The Deposit Protection Scheme ensures that:
  • Tenants receive either all or a portion of their deposit back when they’re entitled to it.
  • Disputes over the return of the deposit are easier to resolve.
  • Tenants are actively encouraged to keep your property to a high standard.
When a tenant pays the deposit as part of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, we protect it in the custodial government initiated custodial scheme.

Custodial scheme

The deposit will be held by the scheme for the duration of the agreement, repayable upon the end of the tenancy. After the deposit has been paid, the landlord has 14 days in which to provide details of how the deposit is protected, to the tenant, including:
  • The contact details of the chosen tenancy deposit scheme
  • The landlord’s details
  • How to apply for the deposit to be returned
  • The details concerning the purpose of the deposit
  • What to do if a dispute arises from returning the deposit
At the end of the tenancy, we will help the landlord and tenant to reach an agreement, upon which the deposit will be divided up and returned to each party accordingly. Should a dispute arise, the deposit is held until the dispute resolution service or the Courts solve the disagreement. Please note we do not hold your deposit so therefore have no client money protection Insurance.
