Letting Advice and Fees


  • The interior and exterior should be clean and in good decorative order
  • Furnishing should be in a sound, legally safe and serviceable condition
  • All electrical wiring, pipe work, heating systems and appliances should be in a safe working condition. If possible, arrange maintenance contracts
  • The landlord must make sure that all gas pipe work and appliances comply with the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1994. On an annual basis - a Corgi registered gas fitter must provide written proof of safety by issuing a landlords certificate, CP12. Tenants must be provided with a copy of this certificate. next2let do need a copy of this certificate before they can allow any tenant to sign a lease.
  • Get permission from your mortgage lender to let property (if you do not have a buy-to-let mortgage). Some tenants ask for written proof that this permission has been obtained because without it their tenancyagreement could be invalid.
  • Ensure that your property and contents are adequately insured and that you have advised your insurers of your intention to let.
  • Just before letting a property, clean the interior thoroughly and tend to the gardens. This will help set the standards you expect to be maintained by your tenant.
  • Install smoke detectors on each floor of the property. Remove any toxic and/or highly inflammable substances.


Letting Fees to: Tenants

All leases are subject to suitable references and credit checking. When a Tenant finds a property they would like to proceed with, next2buy ltd. require a £100.00 holding fee. Once a holding fee is received referencing checks are carried out. Holding fees are non-refundable and non-transferable (Terms & Conditions apply). Should the reference checks not be accepted for any reason or the applicant withdraws from the property the holding fee would be forfeited. If the applicant is accepted the holding fee will be deducted from the final balance required. Please note there is a deadline of 15 days from application to supply all documents and information. After this time the property will be advertised to let and the holding deposit will be forfeited.

  • 1 x Months rent in advance
