The Lettings Team

Brannen & Partners are the leading Lettings and Property Management Agent at the Coast. With our first class service and business built over the past 20 years we are the first point of call for hundreds of landlords and tenants when it comes to letting. Being a family run business dedicated towards customer service we have built our reputation on trust, repeat business and recommendation – something we pride ourselves on.

We have a dedicated lettings team supported by the repairs, accounts, inventory and administration departments.

We are members of ARLA (The Association of Residential Letting Agents), RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), The Property Ombudsman redress scheme, TDS (Tenancy Deposit Scheme) and have CMP (Client Money Protection).

Our Standard Tenant Fees Are As Follows:

Before Moving In

Initial tenancy set-up fees to secure a property are £180 – this includes contract negotiations, processing the application, arranging the tenancy and drawing up the paperwork.

There is also a charge of £30 per reference (one reference per adult occupier) – this includes previous landlord checks, credit credits & an affordability assessment.

These fees once paid are non-refundable and on a first come, first served basis.

EG 1 adult = £210, 2 adults = £240, 3 adults = £270 etc.

On Day Of ‘Move In’

The first month’s rent and deposit will be paid.

The tenancy deposit / bond can be calculated as the monthly rent plus £50 (EG £450 monthly rent + £50 = £500 deposit). Where agreed with landlords an additional tenancy deposit / bond may be requested for tenants with pets – normally £100.

EG on a rent of £450pcm, the total due on day of ‘move in’ would be £950 comprising £450 rent and £500 deposit.

All negotiations are subject to contract.

Our Standard Landlord Fees Are As Follows:

Letting Only – 60% of the first month’s rent inc VAT (subject to a minimum of £358.80 inc VAT) to find a tenant and undertake the necessary marketing.

Fully Managed – 60% of the first month’s rent inc VAT (subject to a minimum of £358.80 inc VAT) to find a tenant and 12% inc VAT of the monthly rent.
