Landlords

Having been involved in residential property lettings for 20 years we understand the importance of finding good quality tenants. Whether you are a landlord with several properties, or a Landlord who is letting for the first time, your business is important to us.

At Mint Homes we understand that not all landlords are the same therefore we can offer a service to suit you.

Selecting the right tenant for your property

We know that selecting the right tenant for you is more important than just finding any tenant. At Mint Homes, we pride ourselves on the quality of our tenants by carrying out the “Right to Rent” checks and using an independent referencing company to reference every prospective tenant. They check their credit record, verify their income and employment status and; where appropriate, gain a reference from a previous landlord.

Keeping you informed

Mint Homes has built its reputation by keeping all our clients fully informed. From the day we list the property, feedback is essential if you’re going to minimise the void periods and agree a rental. We’ll report all viewers’ comments and make recommendations on price and presentation as we go along.

Rental Payments

Mint Homes collect the first month’s rent and deposit prior to the tenant moving in. After our fees and any pre tenancy work invoices have been deducted, the remaining funds will be forwarded by electronic transfer and a statement of account will be provided by email and/or post. If you instruct Mint Homes to manage your rental property we will raise and collect the rent from the tenant(s) every month by standing order.
