How do I know I am getting a good tenant?
Boxall Brown and Jones Lettings undertake detailed checks on any prospective tenants thinking of letting a property through us. We employ a company called Let Alliance who will complete full credit checking and comprehensive referencing reports. They will in some cases also look at employment references, past landlords and accountants’ references! All ensuring the people applying for the property are fit to do so. We strongly believe that time spent before a tenancy commences, checking out the tenant fully, gives landlords the opportunity to decide whether to let their property to a particular tenant or not – saving time, hassle and aggravation at a later stage.
What do I do about a deposit?
Any tenants wishing to rent a property through Boxall Brown and Jones Lettings will be required to pay five weeks rent as a deposit. This deposit will be sent to the TDS and registered. At the end of the tenancy if you are happy with the way the property has been left, the deposit will be returned in full to the tenant. If there has been any damage to the property caused during the tenants stay, it may be possible to take money from the deposit to cover this which is obviously what the deposit is there for. Deposits looked after by Boxall Brown and Jones Lettings are administered by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

What is an inventory?
An inventory is a document which is prepared before the tenant moves into the property. This details the exact condition of the property prior to occupation. Boxall Brown and Jones Lettings take considerable time and effort to prepare a very detailed inventory on any property that is let and record everything about the internal and external appearance of the property. If furniture is being left at the property, this will all be listed in the inventory. It is crucial that a very detailed inventory is prepared on every property so that at the end of the tenancy, if there is a dispute, this document can be relied upon.
