Imagine having an expert on hand to find you the very best tenants when you need them. Plymouth Homes Lettings' “Tenant Find Only” service is for landlords who manage their property themselves, but want the best possible tenancy applicants.  

Landlords who use our Tenant Find Only Service come to us because they face the dilemma of sourcing good quality applicants. They also come back each time a new applicant is required because we have a proven track record of matching the right type of tenant to the right home.  

A Challenging Endeavour

On their own, many landlords can find sourcing the right applicants a challenging endeavour. Advertising in the paper can be expensive and is often not very productive, whereas online media can on occasions attract the “wrong” type of applicant. When a landlord asks us to provide a Tenant Find Only service, we take care of all the details and difficulties for you. One of our Let Only landlords, David West described his experience with us like this:  

“The agent took the pressure off me in finding a suitable tenant for my property, leaving me free to concentrate on my other business.”  

Keeping Up to Date 

It can be hard for landlords to keep up to date with all the new legislation. The latest being the de-regulation act that came into effect in October 2015. Not complying or being able to prove that each box has been ticked and each “i” dotted, could result in losing the right to serve a Section 21, or worse, for this to be challenged at court. The Tenant Find only service is designed to take this burden off your shoulders. Our highly-trained team of agents keeps up to date with all relevant regulation and legislation as a matter of course, so that you don't have to.  

“We have recommended Plymouth Homes, and the Lettings Team to many people due to their impressive knowledge, support and efficiency.” Justine Bromidge, Let Only landlord.  

Three Packages 

Plymouth Homes Lettings provides three packages of Tenant Find Only service, that start from just £199.00 including VAT. All three packages include a To Let board, advertising on RightMove and OnTheMarket, also exposure via our highly active social media platforms and our website. They also each include accompanied viewings and advice on which applicant is the right one. We also conduct Right to Rent checks, full referencing and credit checks. We can also protect the deposit using our TDS custodial service. 

Whichever package you choose, you can be assured of a friendly, knowledgeable service, where you are always kept up to date with viewings and receive the required feedback. 

“Jacqui and her team were always on hand to help with an queries, they were always quick, polite and helpful. Would highly recommend.” Jo Olivey, Let Only landlord
