Do you really need a letting agent to rent your property in Bristol?

Well, the short answer is yes! But let’s delve into the longer, more helpful answer.

Although it’s certainly possible to rent a property without a letting agent, there are many advantages to working with a professional who can handle the process for you. In this article, we will look at whether you really need a letting agent to rent your property in Bristol and why you should choose Rent Happily to help you with the process.

If you have the time, knowledge, experience and resources to manage the rental process yourself, you may not need a letting agent. However, if you are looking for a hassle-free experience, then working with a letting agent such as ourselves can be a life saver. 

Letting agents can handle tasks such as advertising your property, screening potential tenants, handling paperwork and negotiations and providing ongoing property management services.

If you decide to work with letting agents in Bristol, our team at Rent Happily is an excellent choice. We offer a comprehensive range of services to help you rent your property quickly and easily such as:

Property listings: We can advertise your property online to ensure your property is seen by a large pool of potential tenants.

Tenant referencing: We will find you reliable, trustworthy tenants and ask for 3 years of addresses, as well as the last landlord’s reference. We’ll also look at employer’s references, full credit checks and an affordability test to make sure their income is enough to rent your property.  

Negotiations and paperwork: We will handle all negotiations and paperwork including drafting the tenancy agreement, collecting rent and managing deposits.

Property maintenance: Our experienced property managers are on hand to help with any ongoing property management issues, ensuring that your rental experience is as stress-free as possible.

  • I have only ever had good experiences with Rent Happily. The team are friendly and helpful, they treat us with respect and I've always felt like they value us as tenants. Not something I've come to expect from an estate agent! Thanks for being the kind of estate agent I am happy to write a testimonial for!

  • Rent Happily has been managing our properties for seven years now. As a team they are fantastic, whether liaising with tenants, keeping up to date with any maintenance when needed, or making sure that we always comply with any new regulations. When we have tenant changeovers, they have been very quick to find new tenants so any void periods have been minimal. I thoroughly recommend their property management services.
