Why (or when) someone would need this service?
This is a new service of particular interest to commercial lettings agents dealing with smaller commercial properties which their landlord clients may be willing to let on relatively standard terms.
How does the process work/what are the steps?
We will provide a full “pack” to the lettings agent who arranges for information to be completed/supplied by the landlord and tenant. The questionnaire and other documentation are returned to us. We will then produce the lease in duplicate together with any other documentation and forward this to the lettings agent who will arrange for the documentation to be completed by the landlord and the tenant. Amendments to our standard documentation will not usually be acceptable.
How long does it take?
With a willing landlord and tenant the lease can be completed within a week and sometimes more quickly than this.
Is it expensive? How do the costs work?
We act on a fixed fee of £650 plus VAT.
What are the things people should consider before calling?
This service is only available through a lettings agent, for properties with an annual rental of less than £20,000.00 and where the tenant decides that they do not wish to instruct their own solicitors.
