Letting your property FAQs

Speak with one of our team today for more details.
We aim to return your deposit back to you in full as soon as possible. After the tenancy ends we will inspect the property to make sure it is returned to the landlord in the same condition and confirm that we will return the deposit back to you within ten working days of your tenancy ending. If the property does need any work to bring it back up to standard, we will give you the opportunity to return to the property and carry out any work needed. If you are leaving one of our properties and would like further information on the process, please feel free to contact us or refer to your End of Tenancy letter.
Our referencing service will usually involve a credit check, an employment check and a reference from your current landlord of managing agent. This may differ if you are self employed as we will need to speak with your accountant or see proof of income.
If you would like to decorate or make any changes to your property, you will need to have permission from your landlord first. In most circumstances, your landlord will be happy to make changes as long as you put the property back to how it was when you moved in.
Nobody can enter the property without your permission or without giving the correct, legal notice.
When you can end your tenancy depends on the type of agreement you currently have. If you have a fixed term agreement, these are usually six month agreements, you can only end the tenancy at the end of this agreement. If you are no longer on a fixed term agreement and are on a periodic tenancy you will need to give us one months written notice on your anniversary date (the day you pay your rent).
We are open seven days a week and 363 days a year so you will normally be able to contact the Lettings team if you have a problem. If you are unable to speak to somebody in our team, you can email property-management@simonblyth.co.uk and one of our team will respond as soon as we are available. If it is a serious issue you can email emergency@simonblyth.co.uk. If you have a serious emergency such as a major flood, gas leak or fire at a time that no staff will be available such as Christmas Day, please feel free to vacate the property to a safe location and contact any contractor to make the property safe. We will then deal with this when a staff member becomes available.
