Have used Romans as a landlord for 7 years. The lettings management team are superb, especially Donna who has been brilliant. I have had some dififcult tennants lately which she has dealt with easily. I also had some remediation work needed doing which she handled with ease and got the house back up to a very professional standard. Can't recommend enough, takes as much of the stress of being a landlord out as possible.

Really good service. This is the first time I have used a property management company and Darren and his team were careful to talk me through the process of renting the property. They found me a tenant within 2 days of being on the market as well which was great.

10 key steps to letting a property

rental valuation

Step 1: Rental Valuation


Receiving an accurate price and attracting the right tenants for rental property is vitally important so make sure you choose an experienced local agent.

Book valuation

decide involvement

Step 2: Decide on your level of involvement

Consider how much involvement you want to have with your tenant and property, day to day maintenance, monthly rent collection and other responsibilities may affect your current lifestyle in a way you do not want.

find tenants

Step 3: Find your ideal tenants

Finding the right tenant can be expensive, time consuming and hard work. You want to find a tenant that is in the best position for you. With us, you'll receive high profile advertising and utilise a large tenant database.


Step 4: Viewings


We recommend you keep your property as a blank canvas for prospective tenants by keeping the place clean and clutter-free. We accompany all prospective tenants on viewings on your behalf. 


Step 5: Negotiate and agree an offer

Your letting agent can handle all negotiations between you and the prospective tenant. We strive to get you the best rental price, length of contract and tenants. 


Step 6: Reference and credit checks

It is important to run thorough checks on prospective tenants to ensure that your investment will be secure. At Romans, we use strict referencing procedures carried out by independent experts. 

sign tenancy

Step 7: Signing the tenancy agreement

This document outlines the agreed responsibilities of both parties. It is important that both tenants and landlords take the time to read this carefully before signing.


Step 8: The Inventory


An inventory is a detailed list agreed by both parties itemising the contents and condition of the property at the time of the tenant moving in. Romans uses an independent Inventory Service to minimise the risk of any deposit disputes.

secure deposit

Step 9: Securing the deposit


Once the deposit has been paid in full, the tenant has secured the property. This deposit is held independently against possible damage to property which can be checked against the inventory at the end of the tenancy.

Step 10: Moving in day!


Small gestures will go a long way in building good relationships with your tenants, leave out instructions to appliances. (This may also mean tenants will be less likely to break the appliance). Want more advice? Contact us and we'll be happy to help.

Want more protection for your property? Market your property under our No Deposit Option

Under our new No Deposit Option, tenants can opt to pay a small monthly fee in lieu of a deposit, in return, we will indemnify your property for up to two months’ rent – that’s 33% more than the traditional deposit!

    • 40% more protection for your property - Under our new No Deposit Option, tenants can opt to pay a small monthly fee in lieu of a deposit, in return, we will indemnify your property for up to 7 weeks’ rent – that’s 40more than the traditional deposit!

    • Tenants who are mindful of their credit scores - Part of this offering includes rental payments contributing to tenants’ Experian credit scores (usually rent does not), so you have added peace of mind that your tenants are mindful of their credit score and have even more incentive not to default on payments.

    • More demand from tenants who are seeking deposit free renting - This scheme was designed to not only benefit tenants financially but to also offer you a new marketing tool, creating a buzz around your property that other agents can’t match.

What can I achieve on the landlord’s account?

    • Property status snapshot
    • Access to your statements 24/7
    • Access property inspection reports and all your documents
    • Keep track of viewings and feedback
