The Silver Service
SET UP FEE OF £234 INC VAT AND £30 INC VAT PER MONTH
Silver is our latest service - The service offers marketing and advertising of your property using various mediums, managing applicants, accompanying them on viewings, conducting references for potential tenants, preperation of tenancy agreement, registration of the deposit, collecting rent, serving notices and tenancy renewals.
This service requires you to carry out an inventory* and any justifiable repairs and maintenance work at the property yourself - so if you are happy to do that, you can have the peace and security of having your rent collected every month on a fixed day through tenancy periods.
Following the Chancellors Autumn Statement announcing the ban on letting agency fees for tenants, I would like to confirm that at present, the law has not yet been passed and we believe that the consultation period will only begin in 2017. ARLA (The Association of Residential Lettings Agents) has advised its member agents not to change any fee structure until it becomes clear what the Government has decided their course of action will be. Chelton Brown being members of ARLA, will be led by their decisions.
Recent Industry publications indicate that it will take 12 to 18 months for the consultation period and legislation changes to be made. Until we have further information, it really will be business as usual.
Chelton Brown will be lobbying with other agencies and professional bodies to make sure that the voice of our landlords is heard and that any changes will have as little impact on your income as possible. As we feel it is inevitable that there will be some changes if you would like to participate in a petition regarding this please follow the link: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/173668Assuring you as ever of our best attention at all times.
