Our Commitment to You 

Our commitment is to give you a professional and personal service with regular updates during the renting process. Communication is of paramount importance to us.

Our Attention to Detail 

We know how best to bring a property to the lettings market, how to present it and how to find the right tenant through an in depth and thorough referencing procedure. We understand the importance of finding the ‘right’ tenant.

Knowledge 

We are only as good as our people. That’s why our lettings team love what they do. Our lettings team have expert knowledge and experience within Shropshire and surrounding counties enabling us to advise and give you the best service possible.

Web Exposure

Your property will be marketed on Rightmove, Onthemarket.com and of course our own website. View a list of current rental properties.

Marketing

A full marketing campaign gives one the confidence that all opportunities have been explored and we can tailor this to your personal wishes.

Advertising

Advertising will be in a selection of local papers and magazines. All our advertisements will appear in colour.

Editorial and PR

If applicable we are able to issue press releases when the property is launched. We will work with you to draft this release to include some history of the property, or people who have occupied it previously and any other interesting stories.

The release will be circulated to local and regional property editors. We also maintain strong links to national property editors and will look to promote your property wherever appropriate

To Let Board

We are very open about To Let boards - some people like to have one and others don’t. We do find that sometimes even just an arrow board is helpful especially if it is a rural property and hard to find.

Codes of Conduct

We choose to be answerable to leading professional bodies, not all letting agents want to be accountable for their actions. We like to maintain the highest professional standards by conforming to the guidelines of the industry's leading organisations. It's a clear sign you're dealing with a thoroughly reputable and respected agent.

Balfours Applicants

Detailed information of the property will be immediately forwarded to all those applicants who are registered with Balfours looking for similar properties and viewings will be arranged as soon as is mutually convenient.

Referencing

Balfours understand the importance of peace of mind and we strive to ensure you have this throughout the tenancy. We use the largest referencing company in the UK who have over 20 years experience and they will seek landlords and employment references on your potential tenants. They will also carry out credit checks to provide you with background on applicant’s credit history so you can be comfortable that your potential tenants have not experienced financial difficulties in the past.  

Management

We are pleased to be able to offer you a fully comprehensive management service enabling you to rest assured that your property is in good hands.
Our full management service proves to be our most popular package as we become the first port of call for the tenant if there are any issues the following aspects are also included:

  • Regular property inspections
  • Organising repairs and maintenance
  • Monitoring rent collection
  • Legal advice
  • Rent Reviews
  • Ensuring your property and appliances comply with legislative requirements
  • Negotiating deposit returns at the end of the tenancy

Legislation

  • Deposit regulations
  • Serving of notices
  • Energy Performance requirements
  • Utilities – i.e. gas, electricity, oil and water
  • Obligations of landlords and tenants
