We fully manage properties throughout St Albans and surrounding areas for UK and overseas landlords. We have extensive experience and aim to make the process of letting a property as simple as possible.
What level of services can you offer?
This really depends on how much support you need. We offer three main service levels: Let Only, Rent Collect and Fully Managed. Each involves a different degree of service and the fees we charge reflect this. Our service can be personalised to each individual to suit the client’s needs and requirements.
How do you reference potential tenants?
Each prospective tenant is vetted through an independent referencing agency: Tenant Serve. Each tenant intending to live in the property must therefore complete a Tenant Serve reference application form in paper or on-line format. This application asks for personal information and is used to conduct a Credit Assessment.
What are the benefits of Fully Managed?
Choosing a fully managed service allows you to relax and know your property is in the best hands. Fully Managed creates a professional distance between you and the tenancy. Giving you the ability to avoid the burden of maintenance repairs, contractor appointments, Safety regulations, rent management and deposit negotiations.
What happens to the tenants deposit?
From 6th April 2007, all deposits paid to a landlord or agent for an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement in England and Wales, must be protected by a Government authorised Tenancy Deposit Scheme. Cassidy and Tate are a member of the Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS).
Do you carry out Right To Rent checks?
Yes. Under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014 a Landlord must not authorise an adult to occupy property as their only or main home under a residential tenancy agreement unless the adult as a British citizen, or European Economic Area (EEA) or Swiss national, or has the Right to Rent in the UK. Cassidy and Tate reserve the right to obtain, check and copy one or more original documents that demonstrate the Right to Rent in the UK for all adult occupiers for that property in the presence of the holder.
