Marketing Your Property

Having your property advertised in all the right places is the key to a prompt and successful let.

We advertise your property details through eye-catching adverts in the local press. We also employ extensive online marketing and register interested tenants through our website www.cotswoldlettings.co.uk

Within 24 hours of instructing us, we publish details of your property online on both our website and top property search sites including rightmove.co.uk. through marketing arrangements with these partner sites, your property gets maximum exposure to potential tenants.

Our Landlord Packages

All of our service packages are flexible and can be tailored to suit your exact needs as a landlord. As an independent company we pride ourselves on our personal and dedicated service and we are always available for assistance and guidance on all property-related issues, from choosing the service package that’s right for you to helping prepare your property ready for renting out.

At Cotswold Lettings we offer two different levels of landlord service to reflect the differing levels of involvement that our landlords wish to have when looking after their rental property.

Price Match Guarantee

By making letting simple we streamline our business and can therefore provide the most competitive fee packages in the local area. We are always happy to discuss our fees and make the following guarantee:

‘We will match the fees quoted by any other local letting agency for like-to-like letting agency and property management services.’

Tenant Find Service

This is an excellent service for landlords who want professional assistance in finding and referencing suitable tenants, but wish to manage the tenancy – including maintenance and rent collection – by themselves.

Under this non-management service we will find and install a tenant in your property and carry out the following functions for you:

  • Preparation of property details, floorplans and photographs
  • Comprehensive advertising and marketing of your property
  • Accompanied viewings
  • Selection and interview of prospective tenants
  • Full credit check and tenancy referencing
  • Preparation of tenancy agreement
  • Collection of security deposit and first month’s rent. The rent will be credited to you less our agreed fee. The deposit will be dealt with according to the requirements of the Tenancy Deposit Legislation: all of our deposits are lodged with the Deposit Protection Service. www.depositprotection.com.
