Landlord and Tenant Responsibilities
When a tenancy agreement is signed there are responsibilities on either side to ensure a smooth, event-free rental period. At Lettings Direct we liaise with both parties giving our professional expertise and advice to the agreement.
It is the landlords responsibility to keep the property in a wind and water tight condition and to maintain fixtures and furnishings.
Should you find everyday repairs needing dealt with, the office can be contacted during normal working hours.
For emergency repairs, tenants should phone the telephone numbers on the contact page.
Please note, should we call out a tradesman only to discover the issue has been caused by tenant negligence, you will be billed in full for all costs associated.
No pets are allowed in Lettings Direct properties. Under certain circumstances, landlords may reconsider this rule. If this is the case, a double deposit will usually be required.
In order that we can all live in harmony, anti-social behavior and excessive noise will not be tolerated at any time. Any complaints received by neighbours or landlords will be investigated and may result in the termination of the Tenancy.
Criminal behavior of any kind can result in the termination of the Tenancy.

WHAT IS AN INVENTORY AND MOVE IN REPORT?
We often get asked by landlords, why do I need an inventory, there is nothing in my property, it's unfurnished, surely it's an expense I don't need to incur? My answer is always the same - it's vital that you offer a proper, detailed inventory of a property to a tenant upon move in.
