Information for Landlords

In 1997 Barrie Alderton Estate Agents began offering Brighton landlords a professional and comprehensive letting service continuing the ethos of Barrie Aldertons to provide excellent service with a friendly and approachable manner. This new section of the business came about due to local demand and requests, the small portfolio of property soon grew due to word of mouth recommendations. Since the lettings business has continued to flourish and our new office on London Road was needed to accommodate our lettings team as we were outgrowing our old home due to our success.

Even with our expansion we have managed to maintain an honest and personal service, we have a very low turnover of staff and all our members are all experienced and fully trained in all aspects of letting.

We are pleased to inform you that we are bonded by the NAEA, members of the Ombudsman Scheme, and members of TDS (The Dispute Service). Please note that as from the 6th April 2009 only agents who are members of an approved body of the NAEA, ARLA or RICS can register with the TDS. We were also the first Estate / Letting Agent to be approved by Trading Standards (Buy with Confidence Scheme), Brighton and Hove City Council.

As well as advertising in the windows of our offices in prominent positions we extensively advertise to ensure that your property gets the most coverage possible including Latest Homes, The Argus Property, Rightmove, onTheMarket.com.

We would be happy to arrange a market appraisal of your property at a time that is convenient to you. Please contact us by telephone on 01273 884 554 or e-mail lettings@barriealderton.co.uk when we would be happy to arrange an appointment or answer any of your queries. Whether you are new to being a landlord or you have multiple properties, we are confident that we can tailor our service to suit you.

Depending on your requirements we can:

  • Find Tenants
  • Find Tenants and Collect Rent
  • Full letting service

We carry out stringent checks and references on all potential tenants which we feel ensures we get good quality tenants for your property. All of our paperwork including our tenancy agreement and terms and conditions have been approved by Trading Standards.

We will help assist you to prepare the property for letting, arranging an EPC, Landlord Gas Safety Certificate, NICEIC and advising you regarding all paperwork you are required legally to hold, as well as carrying out a pre-tenancy property visit to highlight any potential issues.

If you choose our full letting service as well as dealing with administration throughout the tenancy and maintenance issues by liaising with the tenants, yourself and our professional tradesman (who have been CRB checked), we also carry out periodic property visit and send you reports. We offer you support throughout the tenancy and help make being a landlord as stress free as possible.

We will liaise with the tenants when it comes to the return of the deposit as well as arranging quotes, cleaning etc. following your instructions.

There is of course much more involved than we can mention here and would be happy to send you our Landlord Information Pack on request or come and discuss it personally at the property.

If you are looking for a buy to let property please speak to our sales team who would be happy to offer you their help and advice on 01273 570 242 or sales@barriealderton.co.uk.

We feel that the quality of our service is what sets us apart from other letting agents so please contact us today.
