Why use Simply Homes to let
If you think all Estate Agents are the same, you haven’t worked with Simply Homes. We’re different. Everything we do will give you an altogether better experience of letting your property. We prioritise quality over quantity and in keeping our business small, we are able to maintain a personal tailored service at all times – This is often lost in the larger companies where you can become a number.
Deciding on an asking rent
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to a rental valuation. If you were to get a number of opinions, there is likely to be quite a variation; from the realistic to the optimistic and all points in-between.
What agents give you is more a view on “marketing price” than a precise value and, as such, the numbers can be very different.
We aim to give you a range, an explanation and help so that you can decide on an asking price and the right strategy for you.
Our objective is to get the best possible rent for you and there are different ways of achieving this depending on the property and the amount of activity in the property market.

Tenant choice & legislation
Very low rent arrears
Selecting the right tenant from those that show interest is a key part of our job. We pride ourselves in never letting to anyone that we wouldn’t let our own homes to and so there are high standards to reach. We have a referencing and vetting process which is second to none
Landlords can expect a steady stream of regulation as the Government is focused on this sector of the property market. Amazingly, there are over 140 laws that affect landlords and to help you through the maze. We routinely deal with these as a part of our service and also keep you up to date with any changes.
Our fee structure
Clear and transparent
We offer a straightforward and transparent commission structure which allows our Landlords to spread the payment of our commission over the duration of the tenancy. Unlike most agents our commission is deducted from the rent so that our Landlords start receiving an income for their property as soon as the tenant moves in.
Rest assured, as a member of The Property Ombudsman (TPO) for lettings we subscribe to TPO’s Codes of Practice. This Government approved independent redress scheme gives consumers additional protection beyond that required by law. Our clients and customers have peace of mind that there is free and fair redress available in the unlikely event of an unresolved dispute involving our agency.
As regulated members of ARLA and RICS this means that any monies we hold on your behalf is insured. This gives you peace of mind and financial protection that your money will always be safe in our hands under the RICS Client Money Protection Scheme.
Tenancy advice & legislation
Once you have accepted the offer and agreed the terms we will arrange the contracts for both parties. Also, we will arrange when your new tenants get the keys. If you are managing the property yourself then we will make sure that the tenants have all your contact details should any issues arise. If we are managing the property for you then we will give the tenants a dedicated Property Manager and their phone number – taking the stress away from you.
Complete and feedback
After sales service
We work hard with landlords to get their property ready for tenants and we have a have a thorough check in process for the tenant where we provide them with help and advice. If we are managing the property for you then we will give the tenants a dedicated Property Manager and their phone number – we aim to encourage the tenant to stay as long as possible and to keep the property well.
If they do decide to leave then we will replace them. We manage many thousands of properties and pride ourselves in making sure that they have tenants in constantly. We know only too well how void periods destroy rental yields.
We pride ourselves on our recommendations and repeat business, it’s really important to us that we consistently do a great job.
Hence we will be chasing both you and the tenants for feedback as we are keen to hear if we could do any better and hopefully you too will be recommending us to colleagues family and friend
