If you any questions on our fees, please ask a member of staff.
We will ask for your address history for the last three years and complete a credit check on each individual tenant. We will also require a reference from your existing Landlord or Letting Agent (if you are currently renting) as well as a written reference from your employer. If you are self-employed, we will ask for an accountant’s reference and most recent set of submitted accounts.
The lease you sign will be an Assured Shorthold, which means that you can stay in the property for the period of the lease (provided you meet all the obligations of the lease). If the landlord wishes to end the tenancy you will be given two months’ notice to quit the premises.
We have an obligation to conduct regular inspections of all tenanted accommodation. This is to ensure the property is not in need of repair, that you are looking after the property and discuss any problems you may be experiencing. You will be given notification when an inspection is due to be conducted.
In the event of maintenance being required please telephone us at the earliest possible time in order to minimise any problem that could subsequently arise. Trades persons will be alerted by the Agent and dependent upon the nature and urgency of the task will respond accordingly. Simple precautionary procedures should then be taken by the tenant to prevent any additional problem arising e.g. turn off water at the stopcock if necessary, isolate electric or gas supplies at the mains where required.
You cannot have any pets unless we have permission from the landlord/ourselves in writing. You must consult us prior to obtaining a pet and submit a written request to have a pet stating age/type/breed.
YES! You should consider taking out contents insurance to cover accidental damage to the Landlord’s contents, buildings, fixtures and fittings. The landlord is responsible for insuring the building.
The Deposit normally equates to 5 weeks rent and will be held throughout the tenancy in a government approved deposit scheme and will be returned at the end of the tenancy subject to the property being left in a good condition without any claim for potential damages beyond fair wear and tear.
As a tenant you are responsible for ensuring the rent is paid in full and on time. We have facilities to enable you to establish a standing order which will mean payments are paid directly from your bank to our designated account. You will need to cancel the standing order before leaving the property.
Utility bills, including Council Tax is your responsibility unless stated otherwise in the tenancy agreement. You will need to choose your supplier upon moving in and ensure accounts are closed when you vacate.
Once the Landlord has agreed to accept your application (subject to references and contract) we will ask for a holding deposit equating to one week’s rent. Upon successfully passing the referencing stage of the application, the holding deposit paid will count towards the total balance of rent and deposit owed before the tenancy start date. You risk losing your deposit in the event you provide inaccurate or misleading information on your application, fail a right to rent check, do not all reasonable steps to enter into a tenancy agreement or unilaterally withdraw your application.
Where do we start?
At the beginning...
We had a " well established " local agent who never visited the house for any veiwing, and the enthusiasm just wasn't there so I decided to try someone else. Came across David through a mailshot and thought id give him a bell...after that everything changed. Took him on ,cancelled the " well known agent" and immediately his drive was a joy to behold, almost daily we had veiwings, and everyone with David in attendance ,doing what agents are meant to do!
Long story short, David got us offers, and we actually sold for the asking price , so brilliant all round work we would definitely recommend him to you, to everyone. On a personal note, hes a cracking lad we got on really well, almost dare I say it like a mate😅! Hes young, hes enthusiastic , hes new, give David Michael's a go he won't let you down!!
Was a joy working with you David, good luck for the future you deserve it👍
I put post up in August asking for recommendation. David Micheal properties was recommended a few times. I contacted him an wow he blew me away with his knowledge and genuine caring approach. This guy smashed it, he worked his soaks off, what a fab amazing job. David Micheal is a top class estate agent folks. You will get a top class professional, person centred Service delivery. I can not thank him enough for all his hard work, care, attention, support, guidance and expert knowledge in the housing market field from every aspect. Trust me if you are thinking of selling your property let david Micheal do it for you. He is a legend
Spoke to Dave today in regards to a property that a client of mine is looking to sell. Not only did he take the time to check the property valuation was correct, he also then talked me through expected yield rate for investors and how that impacts price. Will be doing all I can to use his services again!
Could not recommend Dave enough after the assistance he provided through the sale of my property. He made, what could have been a stressful time, easy. I'd say to anyone selling in Liverpool/North West to give him a call, you won't regret it.
David helped us sell our property in June 2020. He guided us through the process step-by-step providing a research-based valuation, a no-nonsense approach and fantastic quality photographs. Within days our house was on the market, viewings arranged (which David did) and offers came in.
He has provided a fantastic, professional service to us and I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.
