Your Rent Protected

Exclusive to our Managed & Rent Collect Landlords, our Rent & Legal Protection service is designed to remove the worry, stress and hassle out of letting a property.

Rent Protection and Legal Expenses cover does exactly what it says on the tin – it protects the income (rent) of a property that has been let to a tenant.

No Deposit Option

We’ve partnered with Reposit to offer tenants a hugely popular alternative to paying a deposit, which provides landlords with cover for end of tenancy charges to the equivalent of 8 weeks’ rent. 

Landlord FAQs

We’re members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and therefore abide by their membership rules and strict Code of Practice.

We’re also members of The Property Ombudsman (formerly known as the Ombudsman for Estate Agents / OEA), and have done so voluntarily, long before it was compulsory to do so. Again, TPO ensure that members maintain strict Codes of Practice, and provide a comprehensive redress scheme for Landlords and Tenants against agents, should things go wrong.

Although things vary at different times of year, broadly speaking it usually takes between two and four weeks to find and place a tenant, which would normally include our carrying out the necessary referencing, credit checks and inventory.

You will of course need to make sure that your property is properly insured with buildings insurance, and where appropriate we advise you to let your insurer know that your property is to be let – otherwise if the worst happens you may find you will not be covered.

You may also want to make sure that any furnishings and fittings are insured with adequate contents insurance, depending on their value. Again talk to your current insurance provider

As registered agents with the NAEA and ARLA, Brand Vaughan fulfil the membership criteria for The Dispute Service (TDS) – one of the insurance-based deposit schemes.

Each time a Tenancy Deposit is taken and held by Brand Vaughan, we will register it with the TDS and provide a protection certificate. By doing so you will have fulfilled your legal obligation to your tenants.

If you decide that you want to use out Tenant Introduction Service, the deposit will be forwarded to you. It is vital that you ensure that you protect the Tenants deposit with one of the deposit schemes – please contact us if you require any further information

In the unlikely event that agreement cannot be reached between parties as to how the Tenancy Deposit should be treated at the end of a tenancy, TDS operate an independent adjudication service.

After our providing the scheme with evidence of any claim, the case will be reviewed and a final decision will be made. By law all disputed deposits have to be dealt with in this way.

When the end of the tenancy approaches, we start our renewals procedure to allow plenty of time for you and the tenants to decide whether you will be renewing the tenancy, whether we will begin remarketing the property for new tenants, or perhaps make plans for you to move back in.

Whatever the situation, the procedures that we have in place always facilitate a smooth and uncostly solution.

There is a small administration charge of £36 inclusive of VAT for the landlord if they decide to renew the tenancy.
