Renting a Property

Thinking of renting a property?

Every year, we help thousands of tenants find new homes across Devon and Somerset. When it’s done well, renting is a great way to enjoy hassle-free living in a maintained environment.

Renting with Homefinders will see our role going beyond just showing you suitable properties. Prior to renting, we can explain your tenant rights to help you and make sure you know exactly where you stand.

Unfortunately, many tenants have had little to no advice or information on tenancy law or landlord’s rights, so can experience one or two surprises along the way. At Homefinders, we’re upfront and honest with the details without being technical. We can do this over the phone, via email or in person, so contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Understanding a property’s condition

Properties in Devon and Somerset come in all shapes and sizes: some are hundreds of years old and others are brand new. Regardless of age, all properties require some maintenance from time to time.

At Homefinders, our letting agents will advise the landlord on what needs to be done to provide a comfortable home for you. But when you’re viewing a property, always check it’s safe and in good condition before renting.

How we ensure we let the best properties

Homefinders always ensure our landlords are fully aware of their legal and health and safety obligations and we only let properties that are in good condition.

We work closely with our landlords and take time to get to know their properties, so we make sure you’ll love living in your new home. If Homefinders manage the property, we’ll appoint a dedicated property manager to help you with any property issues or queries that you might come across.

Giving you expert, independent help

Your life is busy and hectic, so let us take the strain of finding your new home. We’ll always try to arrange viewings fit your schedule and, if we think we can find a more suitable property in a different area, we’ll suggest alternatives.

Expert lettings advice for your property search

Even though you’re looking for a property, it’s still important to know your tenant and landlord’s rights. We have experts in finding properties, negotiating offers, tenancy agreements and referencing.

Here’s some rental housing advice from our property finding experts:

  • Whether you rent or own a property, you will need to pay Council Tax
  • Apartments (or flats) can incur additional costs, including service and ground rent charges
  • Apartments (or flats) can come with or without car parking spaces
  • An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) explains the cost of heating and lighting a home
  • Some properties are managed by Homefinders, so we are responsible for help and maintenance

Being professionally trained letting experts, Homefinders won’t waste your time showing you properties that don’t match your requirements – we’ll just help you find the ones that do.
