Abbott Property Management are specialists in rental property and property management. As an independent, family business we offer a personal, yet professional service. We have a wide range of properties available for rent to suit all requirements, from small flats through to large detached homes.
Please browse through our property listing for full details. All of our rental properties are vetted and must meet our standards of condition and cleanliness, and comply with current safety regulations.
Once you express an interest in a property we will take a holding deposit. This allows us to take the property off the market while we check references. Should you decide to cancel the letting, your deposit may be used in lieu of lost rental and administrative charges incurred.
References are then taken up through LETSURE tenant assessment service. Provided everything is satisfactory with your submission, you will be required to sign a tenancy agreement that details responsibilities of both the Tenant and the Landlord.
A security deposit is taken against damage, dilapidation or other breach of agreement and this is usually equal to one and a half month’s rent. We also ask for one month's rent in advance and an administration charge at this stage.
Rent is then payable in advance on a per calendar month basis. You are also responsible for payment of bills, e.g. gas, electricity, water, council tax, telephone, TV licence. Tenants are responsible for taking out insurance for their own contents.
We inspect each property on a quarterly basis and appointments are usually made one week in advance, generally scheduled during the day. The inspection gives us the opportunity to assess how you are taking care of the property and also allows you to discuss any points you wish to raise.
At the end of the tenancy agreement, the property is checked against the inventory for condition, contents and cleanliness. If all requirements are met then the deposit is returned, less any deductions if applicable.
All tenants’ deposits are covered by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, which is required by law.
