Our lettings process in 5 easy steps

Step 1

Discover the value

Our first port of call will be a visit to your property to give you an accurate and realistic idea of achievable rent. Applying our 40+years of experience and intricate knowledge of the local market, we’ll also provide you with pointers on how to make the property more appealing to tenants.

Step 2

Far-reaching marketing strategies

Following a written instruction agreement, we get to work on the marketing front. We’ll process high-quality photography and arrange hard-hitting advertising campaigns across social media, On The Market, Rightmove and our website. We also advertise your home across all six of our offices.

Step 3

7 day viewings

We then begin to arrange viewings, which are offered 7 days a week and outside of traditional working hours. Prospective tenants are always accompanied by a Robert Watts lettings staff member to ensure the property is promoted in a highly attractive manner and any queries are responded to with demonstrable expertise and professionalism.

Step 4

Bidding and referencing

We will always strive to secure the highest rent so will encourage a competitive application & referencing process, if appropriate. Once an acceptable offer has been agreed we undertake an intensive tenant referencing check which includes a full credit check; employment references for the last 6 months; and a landlord reference if the tenant is currently in rented accommodation.

Step 5

Completion in 5 days

Following a successful reference check, typically within 5 days, we will discuss the results with you and confirm a move in date if you are happy for us to do so.
