messageAnyone rented their place out recently? Advice please

Looking for advice or recommendations - considering using a local agent such as Daisy Lets or alternatively, doing it privately using an online service such as Open Rent.

Any advice or recent experience appreciated.

Being a private landlord is now a legal minefield. It may be worthwhile using professionals (you'll pay for their expertise mind) to see you through this, at least for your first tenants. How keen are you on hands-on management (arranging repairs etc.)? - if you are local and know tradesmen, good, otherwise maybe delegate.

I would recommend Winkworth - really thorough and professional.

I'm a tenant and Winkworth are our letting agents, they are brilliant and it means we have a really good relationship with our landlord

We use Daisylets to do the marketing finding tenants references inventory etc and signing up. Then we manage it ourselves during the tenancy. Very satisfied with Daisylets and the tenants were happy as well.

I use Daisylets - fully managed, as I don't have the time to find tradespeople, or fix things myself. Would recommend.

I used OpenRent and had no issues... you can do everything through them..... background checks and contract, inventory if letting furnished and register the deposit.

Iím not sure the fees agents are charging these days really match up to the service you get from them, when there are alternatives online...

I second OpenRent - put my property on using their site -£49 all in - including all the credit checks etc..

The property was posted on Zoopla, Rightmove, Gumtree - had 17 queries all managed on the website, including setting up the times to view property..

Also put a board up.

Let my property in less than a week and all for £49 !!
