Letting Service Only

Covering all of North London including Highbury, Camden, Islington, Clerkenwell, Angel and Kentish Town

The Tenancy

The Hotblack Desiato team follow 5 steps during this stage:

  • Tenant viewings: We arrange regular property viewings for prospective tenants which enables us to identify suitable candidates that match your criteria.
  • Tenancy negotiation: Full terms for the pending tenancy will be negotiated with the tenant on your behalf, ensuring all legal requirements are met and you are satisfied with the final agreement.
  • Reference checks: Full credit, reference and ID checks are conducted to verify the suitability of the prospective tenant. This involves using external agencies to check their credit history, contacting employers for salary verification, previous landlords to confirm previous addresses and Right to Rent checks that prove they are eligible to legally rent in the UK.
  • Final tenancy agreement: Once the initial stages have been passed satisfactorily and you wish to accept the offer in full, we draft the full tenancy agreement containing the full terms of the agreement – you are able to check the final document before it is sent to the tenant.
  • Deposit management: We collect and transfer the tenant’s deposit and place it into a verified Government-backed scheme, or alternatively, transfer it to you to do so instead.

The Inventory

Before the tenant moves into the property, we arrange for the inventory to be prepared and checked by an independent inventory clerk. The tenant is also encouraged to be present for this part of the process before it is signed off. This verifies the condition of all furnishes, fixtures and fittings before the tenancy begins and is referred to again at the end of the tenancy to compare the condition of the listed items for potential damage claims.

Renewing the Tenancy

Three months before the original tenancy is due to expire we will request if you want to extend the terms and arrange relevant documentation, or:

  • Negotiate terms for a new tenancy in-line with current market conditions.
  • Request the tenant leaves the property by serving notice as per the agreement terms.

Full Terms and Conditions are available upon request.

Hiten was incredibly helpful and supportive as I went through a challenging sales process. He was proactive and willing to do whatever was necessary to get everything over the line. Would highly recommend.

Gino was extremely helpful and responsive. It was great how he really listened to what we needed and was able to advise us on how to close on a rental in a short timespan.

We worked with Gino. He was really professional and kind for us even though we were unusal to contract the property since it was our first house to live in London. He replies all the email as soon as he can.

Gino was personable and kept me informed throughout the tenancy arrangement process. The vetting service was slow and less competent than I would expect - but Gino kept me up to date on progress. This was reassuring as I had recently experienced a stressf ... Read More
